Reporters keep saying they want the President to be more truthful. He gave an earful to the crowd in El Paso last night and spoke an uncomfortable truth.
The President referred to Governor Northam of Virginia and said Northam supports “a newborn baby [coming] out into the world, and wrap the baby, make the baby comfortable, & then talk to the mother & talk to the father and then execute the baby. Execute the baby!”
Northam did just that with the exception of wrapping the bag in a blanket.
Here are Northam’s exact words:
When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of the mother, with the consent of physicians, more than one physician by the way, and it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus which is non-viable. So in this particular example, if the mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen, the infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if this is what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physician and the mother.
One need not keep a dead child comfortable. Northam was clearly talking about a living child born and then executed.
The President told the truth. The reaction from reporters?
They say he is lying and inciting violence.
