Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, took to Twitter to criticize Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for asking the mother of a crying baby to leave a campaign rally Tuesday.
And they were promptly excoriated on social media:
Planned Parenthood objects to anti-baby hostility. Beyond parody: https://t.co/SzXbvkjA4H— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) August 2, 2016
WOW. That is an almost shocking lack of self-awareness. https://t.co/lMhc16lv8b— Amanda (@RightlyStubborn) August 2, 2016
Don't you mean fetuses? https://t.co/DfjjeWXjHE— Elizabeth Harrington (@LizWFB) August 2, 2016
I'm not against Planned Parenthood but this tweet wins the award for Most Staggering Lack of Self Awareness. https://t.co/V1jHhz416M— Dave Rubin (@RubinReport) August 2, 2016
From an organization that prefers its babies to scream silently. https://t.co/wWtPuv47g5— Tim Stanley (@timothy_stanley) August 2, 2016
At least they leave his rallies alive. They never leave your clinics alive, do they? https://t.co/FlFpBBRwWt— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) August 2, 2016
Wait, doesn't he have a choice if he doesn't want the baby? https://t.co/GNvUj7ADOY— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) August 2, 2016
Well they're just clumps of cells, right? https://t.co/OZRu3yOO9z— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) August 2, 2016
Please tell me more about how much you care about babies. https://t.co/m62XxZskPj— neontaster (@neontaster) August 2, 2016
Planned Parenthood admits babies are, in fact, people. https://t.co/9Cvyr2rRqb— Peter Hasson (@peterjhasson) August 2, 2016
Uhhh..... The irony.... https://t.co/EDfg6dlB4Z— DK (@Dukester_94) August 2, 2016
There is no decent response to trolling this gruesome. https://t.co/hcJVtQGwbO— Tim Carney (@TPCarney) August 2, 2016
At his rally in Ashburn, Virginia, Tuesday, Trump encouraged the mother of a crying baby not to “worry" about taking her crying child outside before telling her, “Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here,” a moment later.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund has endorsed Trump's rival, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary
Clinton, and is campaigning on her behalf.
Watch the moment from Trump's rally below:
As baby cries during rally, Trump first says "I love babies," then "Kidding, you can get the baby out of here." https://t.co/FhVeiFAelU— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) August 2, 2016
