You’d think that it would be easier than it is for Republicans like Donald Trump to oppose those credibly accused of sexual assault like Alabama’s Roy Moore. Instead, Trump and his closest allies are committed to their agenda to the point that they are willing to ignore credible allegations of preying on children.
On Sunday, after having finally spoken out directly about the allegations against Moore last week, he took to his favorite social media platform to again speak out about the race. In so doing, he resorted to his classic strategy of making variably lame and ridiculous nicknames for his opponents, and conveniently tip-toed around the fact that the candidate he’s supporting is accused of preying on children.
‘I endorsed Luther Strange in the Alabama Primary. He shot way up in the polls but it wasn’t enough. Can’t let Schumer/Pelosi win this race. Liberal Jones would be BAD!’
“Liberal Jones” refers to Roy Moore’s opponent in the Alabama Senate race, Democrat Doug Jones.
As Trump accurately notes, Trump backed the eventually failed candidacy of a past opponent of Moore’s, Luther Strange.
It’s a wonder that millions of people who claim to be on the “moral” side of politics support a man like Donald Trump, who himself stands credibly accused of sexual assault and harassment.
