Donald Trump Still Has No Policy Stance On Women’s Health, But Female Supporters DGAF

Donald Trump is still doing damage control for his statements about Megyn Kelly’s blood coming out of her “wherever” over the weekend, assuring the public with the following vague terms at a press conference that he’s totally cool with women’s health issues:

  • “The women’s health issues – I’m for that.”
  • “I cherish women.”
  • “I will be great on women’s health issues, believe me.”

But I don’t believe you, Donald! I don’t believe you at all! Here’s what you said about one important women’s health issue at the GOP debate:

“And I am pro-life. And if you look at the question, I was in business. They asked me a question as to pro-life or choice. And I said if you let it run, that I hate the concept of abortion. I hate the concept of abortion. And then since then, I’ve very much evolved. And what happened is friends of mine years ago were going to have a child, and it was going to be aborted. And it wasn’t aborted. And that child today is a total superstar, a great, great child. And I saw that. And I saw other instances. And I am very, very proud to say that I am pro-life.”

But even then – what does that translate to? Does he believe, like Mike Huckabee, in calling in the National Guard to forcibly stop women from getting abortions, a legal medical procedure? Does he just prefer that women not get abortions? People keep saying that Trump is “defending his stance on women’s issues,” but what the fuck stance are they talking about?

Here’s a scary thing: The Donald Trump campaign web site has no policy explanations whatsoever, on women’s health issues or anything else.

Even scarier: Apparently women who support Trump don’t care about his comments about women, don’t care that he doesn’t have a stance on any issues. According to Reuters, Trump’s female supporters just like the fact that he “tells it like it is” or something. Even though he’s not telling anyone anything other than “I have money” and … Um … Actually, that’s about all he’s saying.

The apocalypse is upon us and it’s taking the shape of a shapeless, downturned face, the beige pallor of whose skin precisely matches the color of the hair that sits atop it, guys. We’re doomed.
