Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy said he is prepared to vote Democrat should Roe v. Wade be overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.
On “The Dave Portnoy Show,” Wednesday Portnoy declared “you can’t get rid of Roe v. Wade,” and called that potential outcome “f—ed up.”
“Some religious people be like, ‘Oh, baby,’ no, no, no. Ninety percent, anybody who’s normally thinking, it’s- If a woman wants to do it, it’s her choice, her body, her choice, all that. To go backwards, it shows how f—ed up politics are,” Portnoy said.
Speaking with co-host Eddie Farrer, Portnoy went so far as to suggest the notion of overturning Roe v. Wade to be a scam perpetrated by Democrats in order to help them maintain control of the legislative branch come November. If the ruling is upended, he said Democrats in 2024 also “would win the White House no matter what.”
He then launched into a world salad of valley-girl speak straight from the script of “Clueless.”
“It doesn’t matter- Republican, Democrat, you can’t support this,” Portnoy said. “This is like going back in time. Like, what are we, in the 20s? It’s so preposterous that I think the thing’s made up, but you have to let women do that. It’s a cause that, like, there’s very few times I’ll come out because you can’t win with it. And it’s certainly, certainly a controversial issue, but like I would walk in a rally for that.”
He continued, “That is f—ing insane. It’s so insane. I think it’s almost made up and a ploy by the Democrats because they know how bad Biden’s approval ratings are that it’s like, ‘well, how do you swing it back the other way?’ … But if that thing is true, then that’s a sad day in this country. That’s all I’m gonna say about that. But it has to be said. There’s certain issues you have to come out and be like, what are we f—ing talking about here?”
“My brain is so f—ed up with how dirty politics are. I- it would be a brilliant tactic by the Democrats to be like, ‘let’s leak this’ because Republicans will vote, I do believe, like me, I don’t care- taxes, I don’t care, nothing. If that is an issue. I vote Democrat,” he announced.
He attempted to reiterate his argument.
“I know the argument. Yeah, you don’t want the federal government making the laws, you want the state. But overall, the less government is just let a f—ing woman do what she wants with her body. Keep the government out of it. That’s, to me, what that is. It’s like, Yeah, you can’t ban it. If a woman wants it great. She doesn’t want it, great. Her choice… It’s a crazy thing. It has to be said. People, I’m sure, some people like, ‘That’s not your thing.’ They’re gonna be mad. It’s a super-sensitive issue. I don’t care. Certain issues you have to be like, ‘What the f— are you talking about?’ This is one of them,” Portnoy added.
In April, Portnoy opined that incumbent President Joe Biden would be a better choice in 2024 were former President Trump to square off against him in the presidential race, though he’s not necessarily a fan of Biden’s either.
“That’s two bad options to me. Trump and Biden are both bad options. Trump more so because I think he would be so divisive. Like, intentionally so,” Portnoy said during an interview at the time. “Like, they are intentionally divisive and that’s their audience but in this country, regardless of what you think of him and his politics, I think he does get a bad wrap for a lot of the stuff- but it doesn’t matter. He [has] broken brains,” he concluded.
