‘They lie so casually’: Something fishy about Dems’ lockstep response to Va. Gov’s abortion comments

Democrats are nothing if not predictable, but it’s something to behold to watch them march in lockstep on one issue after another, as if a memo had been distributed with strict instruction on how to act.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi played dumb when asked Thursday about Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s disturbing comments on late-term abortion, saying she did not know what he said, and it turns out ignorance was a popular defense in the party.

Not only did Pelosi apparently not hear Northam’s remarks about allowing a baby to live or not AFTER it was born, which reverberated across social media, it seems just every Democratic senator in Congress was under the same rock as Pelosi when the controversy erupted.

Henry Rodgers, the Capitol Hill reporter for the Daily Caller News Foundation took to Twitter to say this narrative of denial was common place: “Every Democratic Senator I have spoken with has completely denied hearing anything about Gov. Northam’s late-term abortion comments…”

Northam was commenting on a proposed bill that would remove all restrictions on abortion in the Commonwealth of Virginia, when he shocked many Americans.

“If a mother is in labor…the infant would be delivered,” he said. “The infant would be kept comfortable,” Northam said. “The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and mother.”

Speaking of being predictable, the Democratic governor would later say his words were “mischaracterized,” adding: “I don’t have any regrets.”

 

Rodgers would proceed to name every Democratic lawmaker he approached, offering a quick summary of the responses he got.

Suffice it to say, they were all reading from the same script.

Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., did acknowledge the controversial legislation before adding that “we all need to speak a little bit together and talk about how” to do it.

Of course, when it comes to Democrats, much like mischievous adolescents, you’ve got to be one step ahead of them, as social media users noted:
