The Supreme Court handed down an awful ruling yesterday in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt. Mary Powers covered it in detail here. Obviously, this decision was a pretty significant blow to the pro-life movement.
It was also probably a good time for Donald Trump to rally the troops, right? Maybe do a few media hits and bash liberals on the Supreme Court?
Nope. Silence. He hasn’t tweeted since yesterday, and his campaign ignored all media requests for comment yesterday.
I tweeted earlier about this:
All I wanted from @realDonaldTrump: “Bad decision by SCOTUS! This is why we need pro-life judges! I will make it happen!” Instead, silence.

Is that so hard? Come on. One tweet, Mr. Trump. You could have done it in less than 140 characters. Show some leadership. In order to unite the party and let some air out of the #NeverTrump balloon, you need to be strong on issues like this. Not completely AWOL.
