Trump endorses accused teen molester

Posted By on Tue, Nov 21, 2017 at 3:58 PM

Donald Trump endorses Roy Moore. Of course he does. If Roy Moore denies the multiple allegations of many credible accusers, HE must be believed. Not the women. Never the women. Unless they are accusing Democrats.

Better a child molester than a Democrat in the Senate. Or so the "Christian" Trump base believes.

The money quote from Trump:

“We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat,” said Trump, who is dying to get tax reform passed before Christmas. “[Moore’s opponent Doug] Jones — I’ve looked at his record. … I can tell you for a fact, we do not need somebody that’s gonna be bad on crime, bad on the borders, bad on the military, bad on the Second Amendment.”
Jones is a former U.S. attorney who successfully prosecuted Ku Kluxers for a church bombing that killed black children. This is bad on crime? Perhaps in Trump's white nationalist world it is. Or maybe it was Jones' effort to prosecute a man for the killing of a Birmingham police officer in the bombing of an abortion clinic, a bomber who struck another abortion clinic and the Atlanta Olympics. Is prosecuting an abortion clinic bomber also "bad on crime"?

We could hope Trump's endorsement would do as well for Moore as it did for Luther Strange. But the election is in Alabama.
