It looks like losing the invented constitutional right to an abortion is just too much for notable Joe Biden critic Dave Portnoy.
On his Wednesday show, the Barstool Sports founder and social media influencer promised to vote Democrat if the leaked Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade is is accurate.
According to Fox News, Portnoy said that ending abortion on the federal level would be “f***ed up” and claimed that “you can’t get rid of Roe v. Wade.”
“Some religious people be like, ‘Oh, baby,’ no, no, no,” he said on the “Dave Portnoy Show.”
“Ninety percent, anybody who’s normally thinking, it’s — If a woman wants to do it, it’s her choice, her body, her choice, all that,” he claimed.
“To go backwards, it shows how f***ed up politics are,” Portnoy added.
He also told his co-host the idea that Roe might be overturned is “so crazy” he speculated “it’s a scam by the Democrats” because it would mean they “would win the White House no matter what.”
“It doesn’t matter — Republican, Democrat, you can’t support this,” Portnoy said. “This is like going back in time. Like, what are we, in the 20s?
“It’s so preposterous that I think the thing’s made up, but you have to let women do that. It’s a cause that, like, there’s very few times I’ll come out because you can’t win with it. And it’s certainly, certainly a controversial issue, but like I would walk in a rally for that. That is f***ing insane. It’s so insane.
“I think it’s almost made up and a ploy by the Democrats because they know how bad Biden’s approval ratings are that it’s like, ‘well, how do you swing it back the other way?’” he continued.
“But if that thing is true, then that’s a sad day in this country. That’s all I’m gonna say about that. But it has to be said. There’s certain issues you have to come out and be like, what are we f***ing talking about here?”
Portnoy, who has tended conservative on many issues but remains ardently liberal on personal life, didn’t offer an explanation of why Republicans have consistently won both the White House and Senate while promising to nominate and confirm pro-life judges and Supreme Court justices.
Instead, he said Republicans shouldn’t be for “less government” without restraining government from banning abortion.
“I know the argument. Yeah, you don’t want the federal government making the laws, you want the state,” he said.
“But overall, the less government is just let a f***ing woman do what she wants with her body. Keep the government out of it. That’s, to me, what that is. It’s like, Yeah, you can’t ban it. If a woman wants it great. She doesn’t want it, great. Her choice.”
However, he acknowledged it’s a hot-button topic.
“People, I’m sure, some people like, ‘That’s not your thing.’ They’re gonna be mad. It’s a super-sensitive issue. I don’t care. Certain issues you have to be like, ‘What the f*** are you talking about?’ This is one of them,” Portnoy said.
Portnoy had previously stabbed conservatives in the back, as well, by suggesting Biden would be a better choice if there were a rematch of the 2020 election in 2024, saying Donald Trump had “broken brains.”
