Trump wins several states, wags finger at ‘so-called conservatives’ for wholesale criticism of Planned Parenthood

So is this really going to be the Republican nominee who will offer an enticing and principled alternative to Hillary?
“Look, Planned Parenthood has done very good work for many, many — for millions of women,” Trump said in a news conference Tuesday night. “And I’ll say it, and I know a lot of the so-called conservatives, they say that’s really … cause I’m a conservative, but I’m a common-sense conservative.”
Trump said he would not fund Planned Parenthood “as long as you have the abortion going on,” but noted the “millions of people — and I’ve had thousands of letters from women — that have been helped.”
“So called conservatives” even got the finger quote treatment — and Christie behind Trump looks like he’s waiting to ask for directions to the bus stop:

Planned Parenthood doesn’t seem moved by Trump’s recent acquiescence:

The Republican convention this summer might be anything but boring.
