Musician Jack White joined a substantial number of frustrated Americans yesterday as he took to social media to express his disapproval of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade.

But, instead of simply looking at the legal precedent through one lens, he opted to dive a bit deeper to highlight how America arrived at this point. White took to Instagram and pointed out one of the most critical contributing factors to conservatives' ability to attack abortion rights: former President Donald Trump having the advantage of nominating three conservative justices for the Supreme Court.

On Friday, June 24, White described as an "unchecked egomaniac" who took the country down "the worst, regressive path to the point of an insurrection in our capital building threatening the lives of the vice president and congress members, and in turn, made our govt. an embarrassment to the entire world."

Who would you vote for in 2024 - Biden or DeSantis?

White also criticized Trump's track record which included appointing three conservative justices to the high court in just one presidential term.

"The two-party system by proxy puts this clown in a position to pick THREE conservative supreme court justices, THREE," White wrote. "And now these three judges, completely disinterested and unaffected by what the actual majority wants and needs, have just taken the country back to the 1970's to start all over again fighting for women's rights."

He also included a message to the former president sarcastically applauding him for his "great work as president."

"Well Trump, you took the country backwards 50 years," White said. "I hope your dad is smiling and waving down on you from heaven, while his other hand holds a record of all the abortions you secretly paid for behind closed doors."

"Thank you, President Trump," Greene said. "God bless you. This got overturned today because of your great work as president, and we want him back."

White's blistering remarks came shortly after the court's decision began making headlines. Concerns about the vulnerability of Roe v. Wade reached an all-time high when the Supreme Court's draft opinion leaked back in May. The overturn comes White is one of many public figures who condemned the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade.
