Previously, the White House released a statement, saying: “Biden will be a guest Wednesday night on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!”. Biden was asked about the call of activists to issue executive orders, and he replied that he felt it was exactly for that reason that he doesn’t feel that is the path to choose.
President Biden stated, “What I don’t want to do, and I’m not being facetious, is I don’t want to emulate Trump’s abuse of the Constitution and constitutional authority. And I mean that sincerely because I often get asked, ‘Look, the Republicans don’t play it square. Why do you play it square?’ Well, guess what? If we do the same thing they do, our democracy will literally be in jeopardy.”
Overturning Roe Vs. Wade will cause Mini Revolution
Jimmy Kimmel brought up the Supreme Court draft that suggests Roe Vs. Wade could be overturned. The said case legalized abortion nationwide. A decision to overrule Roe would lead to abortion bans in roughly half the states and could have huge ramifications for this year’s elections. However, it was unclear if the draft suggests Supreme Court’s final words on the matter.
Regarding Roe Vs. Wade, Biden said, “If that occurs, I think we have to legislate it. We have to make sure we pass legislation making it a law that is, ‘The federal government says this is how it works.” The 79-year-old President also added that he has been preparing about how he could respond if the 1973 case legalizing abortion nationwide is overruled.
He said, “It’s just ridiculous, in my view, I don’t think the country will stand for it, and I think what we’re going to have to do, there are some executive orders I could employ, we believe. We’re looking into that right now.” The president also stated that this decision could cause a mini-revolution.
Biden predicted that such a Supreme Court decision could cause a “mini-revolution” and reminded viewers to express themselves at the ballot box. He said, “If they overrule Roe v. Wade, and the state of California won’t do it, but other states say, ‘You cannot do the following, and it’s a law you can’t cross the border’ — all the things that some states have — then you got to make sure you vote. You got to vote and let people know what the devil you think.”
President Joe Biden’s first in-person appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! since taking office was about calling out Trump for his failed political decisions and the “hard right” Republican party. He also spoke about other issues like climate change and inflation. Did you watch the episode? What do you think about Biden’s thoughts?
