Rep. John Rogers (D) told WTVM that it was an “honor” that Donald Trump Jr. criticized his abortion comments the other day, according to the New York Post.
“That proves I’m right to make a scene about abortion, him being born — that’s proof right there. Him being born – that’s a very very good defense I have for abortion,” the lawmaker said.
“His mother should have aborted him when he was born and he wouldn’t have made that stupid statement, right? He’s evidently retarded. Uh, crazy. Donald Trump’s son, I know there’s something wrong with that boy.”
Earlier this week, Rogers spoke out against his state’s abortion bill which would make it illegal to perform an abortion on a woman for any reason unless her health was at risk.
“Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later. You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later,” Rogers said.
He then said children who face abortion might be “retarded” and “half-deformed.”
Donald Trump Jr. called Rogers’ comments on abortion “stomach curling.”
“This is stomach curling and makes Ralph Northam look like a moderate on abortion. Every Democrat running for President needs to be asked where they stand on this. The extreme turn we’ve seen from Dems on abortion recently is truly sickening,” he wrote on Twitter.
