27 November 2017

The Republican, who has been accused of child sex abuse, is running against Democrat Doug Jones to fill Alabama's Senate seat. Because he "is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY".

Moore has lost almost all support within the party, but Trump appears to be sticking by his man, despite campaigning for his opponent, incumbent Senator "Big Luther" Strange, in the runoff Republican primary. Trump pointed to Moore's assertions that he did nothing wrong.

"I can tell you one thing for sure, we don't need a liberal person in there", Trump said.

With a growing number of high-profile Republicans speaking out against Moore as additional allegations surfaced, Republican strategist Scott Jennings called the election a "no-win scenario", for the party, according to the Times report.

Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations. Lindsey O. Graham, R-S.C., said he viewed Trump's comments as "definitely trying to throw a lifeline to Roy Moore".

"A lot of things are coming out, and I think that's good for our society and I think it's very very good for women, ' he said. Forty years is a long time", Trump said, pointing to the amount of time that has passed since the alleged behavior.

Ahead of his arrival at the Trump International Golf Club in Florida, his 81st visit to a golf club and 103rd at a Trump property since assuming the presidency, Donald Trump doubled down on his advocacy for Roy Moore. If you lose, you give the Senate seat' to a Democrat, he said on CNN. He denied it. A tape was also released catching him boasting in 2005 that he could grab women's private parts with impunity.

Jones, Moore's senatorial opponent, served as a federal prosecutor in Alabama, where he brought charges against two Ku Klux Klan members over their roles in killing four girls in the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham.

Barkley, who made the remarks to reporters before the Alabama-Auburn football game, added that the backing from Bannon should have "disqualified Roy Moore way before this women stuff came up". Another woman has accused Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16.
