ABC’s Mary Bruce Carries Biden’s Water On Trump Contraception Exchange

The Regime Media went on the offensive tonight over former President Donald Trump’s Pennsylvania interview responses on contraception, choosing to spin the responses as an intent to impose restrictions on contraception. Most notably, ABC, who strive to remain the most aggressively pro-Biden of the major networks.

Watch as Chief White House Correspondent (and Biden apple polisher) Mary Bruce insists on manufacturing a desire to restrict contraception where the clear record indicates there is none:

MARY BRUCE: Donald Trump today suggesting he’s open to restricting birth control if re-elected, saying it’s something he’s looking at.

JOHN DELANO: Do you support any restrictions on a person’s right to contraception?

DONALD TRUMP: Well, we’re looking at that and I’m going to have a policy on that very shortly. And I think it’s something that you’ll find interesting and it’s another issue that’s very interesting, but you will find it, I think, very smart. I think it’s a smart decision. But we’ll be releasing it very soon.

BRUCE: Trump this morning suggesting in an interview with a local Pittsburgh station that he’d support states making their own rules.

DELANO: You may want to support some restrictions? Like the morning after pill or something?

TRUMP: We are- we are also- you know, things really do have a lot to do with the states. And some states are going to have different policy than others.

BRUCE: Hours later, Trump trying to take it back. Doing cleanup on social media, writing, “I have never, and will never advocate imposing restrictions on birth control, or other contraceptives.” But he did not say that in the full interview, which was reviewed by ABC News. The Biden campaign tonight warning, if Trump wins a second term, it’s clear he wants to go even further by restricting access to birth control and emergency contraceptives.

It is interesting to watch Bruce parse through Trump statements, insisting on an “AHA!” long after Trump has issued a clarification. By now, the White House press corps should know that “looking at it” is Trumpian code for a hedging response. There is no literal intent to restrict contraception. In fact, this view is inconsistent with leaving abortion to the states. But the Regime Media insist on pushing the Biden line that Trump wants a ban. So “looking at it” becomes, by necessity, restrictions.

Which is quite hypocritical when you consider the media’s unwillingness to cover President Joe Biden’s many…malapropisms and gaffes. Biden will mumble through a speech, say he was vice president during the pandemic, have the White House transcriptionists strike through “pandemic” and insert “recession, and the press will say nothing. Trump on the other hand, rigidly holds to what Team Biden says he said, long after clarifications are issued. Bruce even closed out her report by hammering the point about contraception and implying an intent to ban.

BRUCE: Now, back to abortion, a pivotal issue in this race. The Trump campaign tonight tells us the former president was referring to mifepristone, the abortion pill, but that’s not what he was asked about in that interview. In fact, abortion medication didn’t come up at all. Trump clearly asked about contraception.

The title Regime Media is well-earned.

DAVID MUIR: Now to the race for the White House tonight. Donald Trump’s new comments about birth control. What he said when asked by a Pittsburgh TV station, would he support restricting contraception. The Biden campaign outraged tonight. And their response. Here’s our Chief White House Correspondent Mary Bruce.

MARY BRUCE: Donald Trump today suggesting he’s open to restricting birth control if re-elected, saying it’s something he’s looking at.

JOHN DELANO: Do you support any restrictions on a person’s right to contraception?

DONALD TRUMP: Well, we’re looking at that and I’m going to have a policy on that very shortly. And I think it’s something that you’ll find interesting and it’s another issue that’s very interesting, but you will find it, I think, very smart. I think it’s a smart decision. But we’ll be releasing it very soon.

DELANO: You may want to support some restrictions? Like the morning after pill or something?

TRUMP: We are- we are also- you know, things really do have a lot to do with the states. And some states are going to have different policy than others.

BRUCE: Hours later, Trump trying to take it back. Doing cleanup on social media, writing, “I have never, and will never advocate imposing restrictions on birth control, or other contraceptives.” But he did not say that in the full interview, which was reviewed by ABC News. The Biden campaign tonight warning, if Trump wins a second term, it’s clear he wants to go even further by restricting access to birth control and emergency contraceptives. Trump, tonight, also under fire after this video was shared on his social media account.

NARRATOR: What happens after Donald Trump wins?

BRUCE: The phrase “Unified Reich” seen on screen, echoing Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich and Nazi regime. The phrase appearing three times in hypothetical newspaper front pages celebrating a Trump victory, along with other antisemitic tropes. The Trump campaign adamant, “This was not a campaign video.” That it was “reposted by a staffer who clearly did not see the word, while the president was in court.” But that video that included three instances of the word “Reich” remained on Trump’s page for more than 18 hours. The president sounding the alarm.

JOE BIDEN: A unified Reich? That’s Hitler’s language, that’s not America’s.

BRUCE: His campaign noting it’s not the first time Trump has used language that mirrors Hitler’s.

KAMALA HARRIS: This kind of rhetoric is unsurprising, coming from the former president, and it is appalling. And we got to tell him who we are.

BRUCE: Now, back to abortion, a pivotal issue in this race. The Trump campaign tonight tells us the former president was referring to mifepristone, the abortion pill, but that’s not what he was asked about in that interview. In fact, abortion medication didn’t come up at all. Trump clearly asked about contraception. David?

MUIR: All right, Mary. The race for president is on and we’ll be covering it for the many months ahead. Thanks, Mary.
