Now that it’s clear Republicans screwed the proverbial pooch in the midterm elections and will only have a miniscule majority in the House with the Senate very probably remaining split 50-50 between the parties, it’s obvious that the issue of abortion and the Supreme Court’s June ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade, allowing states to take away a woman’s right to choose, was a major factor that hurt the GOP with voters.
And yet, former Trump administration press secretary Kayleigh McEnany is dismissing the impact of abortion as an issue, predicting that it will “go away.”
HuffPost notes that McEnany made her remarks during an appearance Thursday on Fox News:
No, Kayleigh, abortion is NOT going to go away, and the more stories we see and hear about children who were raped or are the victims of incest yet cannot abort the product of those disgusting attacks, the more it will become clear to the vast majority of American voters that the Supreme Court was wrong and the right to choose must be enshrined in federal law.
Abortion is a losing issue for the GOP. It always has been and always will be. No matter how much the party tries to please the extremists on their right wing, those people will never be happy. Their vision of America is something right out of The Handmaid’s Tale, and they refuse to even consider compromise on the matter.
So, while Kayleigh McEnany think that abortion is just a one-time election issue, she’s wrong, and Twitter wasted no time letting her know that.
