We knew pro-abortion activists would be upset by Donald Trump's win, but we didn't quite know how low the rhetoric would go. One unfortunate case in point was stand-up comedian Jena Friedman's guest appearance on Stephen Colbert's live election special on Comedy Central. As the election results came in and it was clear Trump was going to be elected our next president, she made a disgusting suggestion. (Warning: graphic language.)
“It feels like an asteroid has just smacked into our democracy,” she began. “It is so scary and sad and heartbreaking. And I just wish I could be funny. Get your abortions now because we're going to be f**ked and we’re going to have to live with it.”
The audience did not laugh - they gasped.
Presumably, Friedman is terrified, in part, because Trump has pledged to appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court. He will also be cooperating with the Republican-led Congress as they continue to try and defund Planned Parenthood. It's not just because they feel like it - it's because Planned Parenthood has been caught treating unborn babies inhumanely. Yet, pro-abortion activists like Friedman like to define any kind right to life legislation as counterproductive and probably thinks a Trump presidency will end women's rights once and for all.
Liberals everywhere have been shouting their end-of-the-world prophecies after Trump's historic win on Tuesday. How can the free world survive with him at the helm, they wonder? Instead of acknowledging the political outsider's impressive accomplishment - winning states Republicans haven't won in decades - Hollywood and the liberal media is continuing to depict Trump as a racist and a bigot who will likely start World War Three.
Thankfully, we live in a democracy, and, despite what frightened liberals may think, the nation will go on.
The handshake seen around the world on Thursday confirms it.
