Many left-leaning people don’t understand the SCOTUS decision. Roe v. Wade means.
Unfortunately, Joe Biden is not the only one who seems to be ignorant about the subject.
I don’t think the Supreme Court or for that matter Congressional Republicans – who for decades have pushed their extremist agenda – have a clue about the power of American women.
Kansas found out the hard way last night.

“I don’t think the Supreme Court or for that matter Congressional Republicans – who for decades have pushed their extremist agenda – have a clue about the power of American women,” Biden said. “Last night in Kansas they found out.” Biden was referencing the decision in Kansas that rejected an amendment that would have weakened protections for abortion.
Karine Jean-Pierre, White House Press Secretary was then.

She said Biden had predicted that “people would turn out in record numbers to reclaim rights stolen from them, and they did.”
Um, guys? In Dobbs v. Jackson didn’t ban abortion, they sent it back to the states to decide. Kansas made the right decision, no matter how one feels about the Supreme Court’s decision. Not only didn’t the Supreme Court steal any “rights,” they ensured that the rights were back where they should have been all along — with the women and the others who voted. Jean-Pierre, Biden and Jean-Pierre don’t understand the decision. Or they’re just trying to gaslight everyone about what it said.
Jean-Pierre didn’t leave it there. She doesn’t seem to understand the purpose of the Supreme Court or how the government works.

Noted legal scholar KJP even claimed, “From day one, when the Supreme Court made this extreme decision to take away a constitutional right, it was an unconstitutional action by them.” It’s the Supreme Court’s job to determine what is constitutional, not Jean-Pierre’s job. The Supreme Court wasn’t extreme. Indeed, it was the Court that originally passed Roe that was the “activist” Court passing a right that didn’t exist in the Constitution. Again, this was handing it back the state legislatures to their people. I don’t think she understands what a constitutional right is. I think she’s trying for the Paul Krugman award for how many times someone can just be incredibly wrong. This might be the winner of an award honoring shamelessness.
Where does she suggest that the case is sent to for it to be thrown out? https://t.co/ifJ8nwIoFG

Jean-Pierre’s comment even sparked a reaction from Fox’s Bret Baier, who found it eyebrow-raising.

We can hopefully get as many Democrats off the scene in November to keep these insane people at bay.
