Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s latest tweet comparing getting abortions to guns sparked backlash.

“It shouldn’t be harder to obtain an abortion than an AR-15,” Clinton tweeted.

Radio host Mike Mason responded, “Just when you think you’ve seen the dumbest tweet, Hillary logs on to Twitter…”

“I think that was the goal of packing the Court with justices who were on the record for many years of being against women’s constitutional rights to make decisions about our own bodies. I was deeply sorry that it actually happened,” she said.

Clinton added, “But now that it has happened, I think everybody understands that this is not necessarily the only effort that we’re going to see this Court undertake to turn back the clock on civil rights.”

She also commented on a concurring opinion written separately by Justice Clarence Thomas.

He suggested reevaluating other cases protecting contraceptive access, same-sex relationships and same-sex marriages.

Clinton went to law school with Thomas and said he is a “person of grievance.”

She explained, “He has signaled in the past to lower courts, to state legislatures, ‘Find cases. Pass laws. Get them up. I may not win the first, the second, or the third time, but we’re going to keep at it.'”

Additionally, Clinton told the show, “The thing that is, well, there are so many things about it that are deeply distressing but women are going to die.”

The former secretary of state’s hope is that this will “wake up a lot of Americans.”
