[Ed. – Presumably there are Americans who view themselves as patriotic who are on the fence about abortion. This should help persuade them to support Trump’s SCOTUS pick.]
With the country more polarized than ever, it’s been hard for Americans to find common ground this Fourth of July. As columnist Megan McArdle recently argued in the Washington Post, to find our way back, we’ll need “a muscular patriotism that focuses on our commonalities instead of our differences.” On Sunday, Michelle Wolf released a video that’s jam-packed with exactly the kind of flag-waving, toe-tapping, muscularly patriotic symbolism McCardle writes about, but it doesn’t seem likely to heal the nation. Please enjoy The Break’s 10th Annual Salute to Abortion:
It’s not the first time Wolf addressed the topic: Although it was almost entirely drowned out by the cycle of outrage over her Sarah Huckabee Sanders jokes, Michelle Wolf’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner monologue also had an abortion joke in it:
Mike Pence is also very anti-choice. He thinks abortion is murder, which, first of all, don’t knock it till you try it! And when you do try it, really knock it. You know, you gotta get that baby out of there. And yeah, sure, you can groan all you want, I know a lot of you are very anti-abortion, you know, unless it’s the one you got for your secret mistress.
