Thiessen: Trump Talks Like 'Liberal Caricature of Conservatism'
Marc Thiessen said on "Kelly File" that Donald Trump's comment that there should be "some form of punishment" for women who get illegal abortions is "something that a liberal pretending to be a pro-life conservative would say."
Thiessen said that Trump doesn't understand what pro-lifers think and repeats the "liberal caricature of conservatism" because he thinks that's what conservatives want to hear.
"But it's really what liberals want to hear, because liberals want to run against the caricature of conservatives. They want to run against the Republican who wants to put women in jail, not the Republican who wants to stop abortion because women are victims just like the babies are."
Thiessen said that Trump doesn't understand the issues, so he says things that are "silly."
Just earlier, Trump national spokesperson Katrina Pierson said that Trump was responding to a hypothetical question about something that was illegal.
