Nancy Pelosi blamed “creature” Donald Trump for endorsing the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade and said the case was “won a long time ago” as Senator Bernie Sanders called the upper chamber repeatedly to bring the bill codifying abortion rights until it’s decided.

We have elected a Democratic House of Representatives that is pro-choice,” the House Speaker told CNN’s Dana Bash on Sunday. “Let’s not take our eye off the ball,” she added. “The ball is: This Court, which is dangerous to the freedoms of our country.” Bash stressed that Conservatives have had the goal for decades to overturn the 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade that made abortion constitutionally covered and stressed that some are critical of Democratic leaders, claiming they “should have seen this coming.” “Who would have ever suspected that a creature like Donald Trump would become President of the United States, wading through a list of judges that he would appoint – therefore getting the support of the far-right. And appointing those anti-freedom justices to the court,” Pelosi responded.

When Todd asked Sanders if it’s a mistake for Democrats to support him, he replied: “I do.” He insisted pro-life Democrats shouldn’t be allowed in the Democratic Party at all anymore, Sanders obscurely responded with: “We’ll see.” [tweet_embed] May 17, 2022[/tweet_embed] Earlier this month, a draft opinion from the Supreme Court showed Justice Samuel Alito and four other Conservative justices signing on for a ruling that would overturn Roe v. Wade. The final ruling is expected to come out in June, but the draft was confirmed as authentic by the court days after it was published by Politico. The only dissenting conservative is Chief Justice John Roberts, who does support a 15-week ban on abortion but not an entire overturn of the 50-year-old ruling.
