Cruz: Do You Trust Trump to Appoint the Next Supreme Court Justice?


As we move to our nation’s date with destiny — to Trump or not to Trump — Ted Cruz is using the life issue to make the case that Donald Trump can’t be trusted to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, a champion for life, marriage, religious liberty — and that pesky Second Amendment:

Trump is upset that Cruz called Trump’s sister a “radical pro-abortion extremist” judge and seems unaware that she struck down a partial-birth abortion bill in New Jersey, really not long after he said on national TV that he would not ban partial-birth abortion because he was (then) totally pro-choice.

Meanwhile, the media in the person of CNN’s Erin Burnett continues its trope that being pro-life is a political problem for Republicans, asking John Kasich if he’s willing to lose the election by signing a bill defunding Planned Parenthood in Ohio. (Yes he is, apparently, except that defunding Planned Parenthood is not as unpopular as CNN thinks.)
