Trump is Transparent About His Awfulness—Except When Discussing Abortion?

The president dismissed concerns that Roe v. Wade may be in trouble at Tuesday night’s debate. This is the one card he’s playing close to his chest.

Trump is open about his awfulness, which makes it especially eerie when it’s obvious he is trying to hide something.

This pandering and disrespectful use of RBG’s legacy — the legacy of a champion of women’s rights — aside, what happened next was quick, but frightening. After a disorderly back and forth about the future of the Affordable Care Act, Biden turned his attention to the other big ticket issue regarding this Supreme Court nomination: Roe v. Wade. He explained that it is “on the ballot in the Court, so that’s also at stake, right now.” But before he could finish his thought, Trump jeered back, “You don’t know what’s on the ballot. Why is it on the ballot? It’s not on the ballot.”
