When Does Someone Stop This Dangerous Lunatic?

President Donald Trump continued to tell dangerous lies about abortion on Saturday, this time falsely claiming to his supporters in Wisconsin that mothers and doctors conspire to commit infanticide after a baby is born.

“The baby is born, the mother meets with the doctor, they take care of the baby, they wrap the baby beautifully,” he said in an off-the-rails rally in Green Bay. “Then the doctor and mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby.”
Lies like this are so dangerous and incites people to murder patients and doctors and nurses. I guarantee you that some clinic gets shot up in less than a month because there is no way he will stop saying this at his rallies. He's got to go for so many reasons. This is just another one. He doesn't need to create this kind of lie to get a base who will never leave him to vote for him. And to them he panders and peddles the worst kind of hateful untrue bullshit in a way that is irresponsible for the President of the United States to be doing. This is so Banana Republic. But you Hillbilly dumbasses just eat this shit up with a spoon. How many of you are paying more taxes this year because trump lie to you again about the 'tremendous' tax CUT you would be getting. Some of you are taking a pretty big hit I hear. Still think he's got YOUR best interests at heart. Too bad you don't have Obama Care either. That caught really should be looked at before you die decades before you should if you had anything resembling quality health care. And that is why you fail.
Trump’s remark that mothers and doctors discuss whether to “execute” a baby after it is born is blatantly false. The president appeared to be referring to infants being born alive after failed abortions, which as The New York Times noted in February is exceedingly rare, and is handled in a manner that directly contradicts Trump’s false claims ― as well as the false claims in a GOP-backed federal bill, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

Doctors told the Times that less than 1% of all abortions are done after 24 weeks, when a healthy fetus is considered viable, and many of those abortions occur because the fetus has a fatal condition or the mother’s life is at severe risk. Doctors also said that if the baby is unlikely to survive after being born, the family may choose to provide the infant care similar to hospice ― where parents will comfort the baby and allow it to die naturally without extreme attempts at resuscitation, according to the Times.

We've known he was a demagogue from the get go. What appalls me most is the audience allowing him to get away this nonsense. It's a tragic farce.
