Jeb Bush Campaign Supporter Asks Donald Trump If Woman Will Be Permitted to Have an Abortion Under His Hypothetical Administration

CNN and the rest of the media ran with this story, not realizing the woman asking the question is working on behalf of Jeb Bush in New Hampshire as an intern.

Which raises the question: Is Jeb Bush pro-choice, as this woman's belligerent question might suggest he is? After all, why ask a "would I be allowed to do with my body what I want" question, if not on the left side of that issue.

I'm not sure if the woman herself is pro-choice, or hoped to catch Donald Trump pandering (which he frequently does) on this issue, and blowing himself up with a pro-choice sort of answer. He didn't, though. He said he was pro-life.

It's just another embarrassment for both the media and Jeb Bush.

Note the silly, "Asshole Edit" sort of cut they give Trump. ("Asshole Edit" is a term I picked up from reality TV -- when a reality TV show wants to designate someone as an asshole or stupid, etc., they have specific editing techniques to do so.)

"TV news" is not news; it's a reality tv version of current events.

Meanwhile, Hollywood gives the CBS TV Reality Show News a polish, and claims Dan Rather and Mary Mapes told the "Truth."
