El Donaldo showed yet another weak policy spot when he admitted that he wasn’t terribly interested in completely defunding federal government from abortion giant Planned Parenthood, an issue that incenses many on the right.

He keeps repeating that there has to be SOME good they do. Later on Hannity, he reiterated that he’d only want a partial defunding, if at all.
“We have to look at the positives for Planned Parenthood!”
Here’s what Planned Parenthood had to say about his comments, from NRO:
“Donald Trump seems to have realized that banning all abortions, shutting down the government, and defunding Planned Parenthood are extreme positions that are way too far outside the mainstream for even him to take,” said spokesman Eric Ferrero in a statement. “We hope that the rest of the GOP field will wake up and reconsider their extreme and unpopular positions on defunding preventive care, abortion bans, and the other economic issues that women and their families care about,” Ferrero continued.
Amazingly, just a week ago the Trumpinator said not only that he wanted it to be defunded, but he wanted them to shut down the government to do it!!
It’s off that someone so hardcore on so many issues would back off on abortion when he admits that he’s very much against it personally.
