Carl Reiner is troubled by what could happen with the Supreme Court under President Trump, and in a NY Times op-ed the comedy legend and Hillary Clinton supporter asked readers to imagine a headline:
FYI: I'm happy to have written an article that will appear in the Sunday Reiview of the NY Times, entitled "Justice Kennedy, Dont Retire"

How would you feel, while reading your newspaper, seeing a headline that read “Roe v. Wade Overturned”? https://t.co/T77rNB3Oxa

Yeah, Reiner (and many other pro-abort lefties) probably didn’t like a whole lot of the reaction:
I would feel that the U.S. has finally returned to the concepts of logic, reason and the belief that all human life is created equal.

I would say, "Holy crap! People finally got it through their heads that slaughtering babies is disgusting and brutal."

I would fall to my knees and give thanks to Jesus because this horrible case opened the floodgates of Abortion around the world. https://t.co/1q7SHraTpe

I'd feel relieved that Planned Parenthood couldn't sell baby parts. https://t.co/h8hQxsYtUj

Joy. Relief. Hope. It would be the Emancipation Proclamation for the unborn. A step toward true justice. https://t.co/HnlmUefI1f

I would cry literal tears of joy.

I'd pinch myself, & then slap my face a few times to make sure I was awake. Then I'd probably look at my kids & start crying for sheer joy.

Tears of joy. I might even buy a copy of your failing paper to remember it by.
