Only Sarah Palin can equal this word salad answer from Donald Trump when asked about his infamous comment that women who have abortions should be punished. Ben Mathis-Lilley calls it “one of the most garbled sacks of nonsense verbiage that has been emitted in the history of human civilization.”

WILLIE GEIST: What about what you told Chris Matthews a few weeks ago, which is that women who get abortions should be punished? Do you still believe that to be true?

TRUMP: No, he was asking me a theoretical, or just a question in theory, and I talked about it only from that standpoint. Of course not. And that was done, he said, you know, I guess it was theoretically, but he was asking a rhetorical question, and I gave an answer. And by the way, people thought from an academic standpoint, and, asked rhetorically, people said that answer was an unbelievable academic answer! But of course not, and I said that afterwards.
