The presumptive Republican presidential nominee backtracked from the comments he made in March, and issued a series of confusing clarifications, including a statement saying "the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman."
Now, he's issued another clarification -- and it might be the most confusing one yet.
He told MSNBC’s Willie Geist:
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 me 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. Everybody understands that.
