MSNBC: Donald Trump is “More Electable” After Saying Planned Parenthood “Does a Good Job”

MSNBC is the mouthpiece of the abortion industry and its hosts and commentators frequently trash pro-life advocates. Now, the liberal cable network is praising Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for saying Planned Parenthood “does a job job.”

Trump has pro-life voters in disagreement with each other about whether he is truly pro-life — as he calls for defunding Planned Parenthood on one hand while praising the abortion company on the other for it’s “good works” or good things.”

After his most recent comments saying , “I have many, many friends who are women, who understand Planned Parenthood better than you or I will ever understood it,” one MSNBC host said that may make Trump “more electable.”

Here’s what the abortion activists at MSNBC said and video of their comments:

KORNACKI: “And the other wild card in this Chris is, Trump’s ideology, is not, there’s still a lot we don’t know, and it’s very flexible, you know.”

JANSING: “We’re trying to get up, we can’t quite grasp it yet.”

KORNACKI: “Here’s an example. This was Meet the Press just yesterday talking about Planned Parenthood. And this is an issue that got Republicans in the general election into a lot of trouble four years ago. But listen to Trump talk about Planned Parenthood.”

TODD: “Do you think that it should be a law that anybody who can afford health insurance has to have it?”

TRUMP: “We’re not going to let people die in some. in squalor, because we are Republicans, okay? That’s part of the problem with the Republicans, where somehow they got fed into this horrible position. We’re going to take care of people … I have many, many friends who are women, who understand Planned Parenthood better than you or I will ever understood it. And they do some very good work. Cervical cancer, lots of women’s issue [sic], women’s health issues are taken care of … Planned Parenthood does a lot of good jobs, a really good job in a lot of different areas.”

KORNACKI: “You know, we focus so much on immigration with Donald Trump, but when you look at health care, Planned Parenthood, he could be more moderate, maybe more electable, than any Republican I’ve seen.”

JANSING: “I talked to his son Eric, and he was saying, look at the broad appeal that this is going to have.”

Trump continues to claim that he opposes abortion and the abortion component of the Planned Parenthood abortion business and maintains he opposes federal taxpayer funding of the billion-dollar corporation.

“Planned Parenthood does a really good job at a lot of different areas. But not on abortion,” he said Sunday. “So I’m not going to fund it if it’s doing the abortion. I am not going to fund it.”

This past week, for the first time, Trump has specifically promised he would sign a bill as president to de-fund Planned Parenthood. Trump has repeatedly indicated he opposes Planned Parenthood funding but has always stopped short of committing to sign legislation to stop the flow of taxpayer funds to the nation’s biggest abortion business.

In a new interview with David Brody of CBN, Trump made that promise. Although his promise will go a long way towards reassuring pro-life voters he would implement specific pro-life policy on abortion as president, Trump continued to praise Planned Parenthood — following up on his “good things” and “wonderful work” comments that have turned off some pro-life voters.

Meanwhile, Trump said he thinks the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case that ushered in an era of 48 million abortions was “wrongly decided.” Trump said he would appoint “very good judges” who would ultimately “change it” but he opposed Roe without specifically saying it should be overturned.

In the last presidential debate, Trump feuded with Ted Cruz over the issue of Planned Parenthood funding. Cruz made the claim that Trump was a long-time supporter of abortion. Even though Trump has changed his mind and become pro-life, Cruz maintains that Trump supports taxpayer funding of the nation’s largest abortion business.

As far as Trump’s comments on Planned Parenthood funding are concerned, Trump has fairly consistently said he opposes taxpayer funding but he’s also made some remarks about the “good things” Planned Parenthood does that have alarmed pro-life voters — as if any “good thing” could make up for the fact that planned Parenthood kills 330,000 unborn babies a year in abortions and then sells their body parts for profit.

Here are some of the headlines we’ve carried at in recent months that provide further details on what Trump has said regarding Planned Parenthood funding:
