MSNBC Commentator Demands Biden 'Deputize' Doctors To Perform Illegal Abortions
He's been dubbed the 'mad scientist' and (retired) 'fat Albert' and it's not very hard to guess why. Liberal commentator Elie Mystal is actually a Harvard Law School graduate but you wouldn't know that by hearing the man speak. During an insane rant on Joy Reid's already nutty show, Mystal demanded Biden 'deputize' doctors in texas so they can perform illegal abortions without consequence.
I have to say, everything about this interview looks like a comedy skit, but the rhetoric and implications are insane. The rant came after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of banning abortion in Texas after 6 weeks of gestation.
"We need to go and get women in Texas and protect their constitutionally protected medical rights. And the way you do that is that you deputize doctors," Mystal said. "You federalize doctors through an executive order an army of federal doctors who are going to go into Texas and protect the Constitution by consulting women about their privacy rights and medical history."
By installing "an army of federal doctors," Mystal declared doctors would then be protected by qualified immunity.
"[F]ederalizing the doctor force, that would protect those abortion providers from the Texas law, which, as we all said, it's a bounty system. Only private citizens can enforce it. Well, you know what federal officials are protected from private civil actions by qualified immunity? Which I don't like, but, you know what? It is time to play hardball, right? It is not go high time. This is go time," Mystal said.
Again, this clown is a Harvard law grad. I'm only reminding you because what he says next is certifiable:
"So you send in the doctors. They're protected with qualified immunity. And the way you get around the Hyde Amendment, which is this ridiculous rule that the government can't spend money on abortions because, apparently, poor people don't get the same health care and everything else, fine. But what you get around the Hyde Amendment is that you made abortions free, which, by the way, they probably should be already, and you privately fund the doctors who are doing this service in defense of the Constitution. Biden could do that law tonight and you could have the doctors on their way to Texas tomorrow. That's what he would do if he needed to go get some people off roofs from a flooding situation."
From last night's Joy Reid -- 'Mad Scientist Fat Albert' (as @VaradMehta like to call him) says Biden should deputize as many doctors as possible w/qualified immunity like cops & send them to TX to deliver abortions en masse.
He also compared it to rescuing people in storms... pic.twitter.com/CCrVMOyGDa

I hate to break it to them but Biden's approval rating is in rapid decline following the multiple disasters he has caused, both domestically and abroad. It wouldn't be advisable for any president to involve themselves in matters dealing with individual States' rights—Much less one who's hated by much of the country right now.
