President Donald Trump has taken a conservative (excuse the pun) approach to the Roy Moore controversy in Alabama…until now.
The President was concerned that if the allegations against Moore were true, the Alabama Judge might be elected anyway, causing the U.S. Senate a distracting war over whether or not to seat him.
But as whispers increase that not all of Moore’s accusers are on the up-and-up, Trump took a stand today.
Speaking carefully but firmly, Trump said we don’t need another liberal Democrat like Doug Jones in the Senate.
He went on to defend Moore while applauding the current sex-harassment “purge” taking place in D.C.
“(Moore) totally denies it. He says it didn’t happen,” Trump said. “Forty years is a long time. He’s run eight races, and this has never came up (in a race involving Moore in the past).”
That’s an excellent point. Campaigns go over the top trying to dig up dirt. Yes, many women are scared for decades to come forward after having been assaulted, but to say the timing of the Moore scandal is fishy would be an understatement.
“Women are very special,” Trump went on to say.
“I think it’s a very special time, 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 and I’m very happy these things are coming out.”
