Trump Fumbles Abortion Question

In a 45-minute interview with NBC's Savannah Guthrie, Donald Trump argued a host of reasons why he should be qualified to run for president in 2012. "I think I'm presidential. I think I have a very high aptitude and I think I was at the best schools and always did good," he said. But when Guthrie turned the topic to the Constitution, his argument was less cohesive. Guthrie asked if there was a "right to privacy" in the Constitution, to which Trump responded, "I guess there is, I guess there is. And why, just out of curiosity, why do you ask this question?" Apparently he failed to pick up on Guthrie's reference to the legal principle that was key in the decision to legalize abortion in Roe v. Wade, and her pointed way of asking where he stood on the matter. "Well, that's a pretty strange way of getting to pro-life," Trump mused before adding, "What does that have to do with privacy?" CBS News' Katie Couric asked Sarah Palin the same question during her 2008 presidential campaign. Palin answered clearly, "I do. Yeah, I do."
