70-year-old Republican Senate nominee for Alabama, Roy Moore, is currently facing sexual assault allegations by several different women. The incidents reportedly occurred when the girls were in their teens and Moore was 32 years old.
Moore has denied all allegations and refused to drop out of the race, despite the fact that many from the Democratic Party have called for him to do so. On the other hand, the Republican Party is standing by him in support, following the “innocent until proven guilty” rule.
It was recently announced that President Donald Trump endorsed Moore’s campaign. The President has also verbally expressed his support for the Republican candidate saying we “can’t afford” to have the Senate seat be filled by someone pushing a liberal agenda.
During a Florida rally on Friday evening, December 8th, Trump reiterated this statement.
He said, "We need somebody in that Senate seat who will vote for our Make America Great Again agenda, which involves tough on crime, strong on borders, strong on immigration...strengthening our military, continuing our great fight for our veterans. I love our veterans!”
Trump ended, "So get out and vote for Roy Moore."
After Trump urged Alabama voters to vote for Moore, the mainstream media slammed Trump—and the entire Republican party for that matter.
Before MSNBC showed a clip of the rally, one of their hosts began, “Tonight a self-confessed sexual assaulter campaign for an accused child molester,” referring to Trump and Moore.
Another political commentator chimed in, “I have to admit to being mistaken because I thought that the Republican Party had gone as low as it could possibly go last year when it supported for the presidency—this anti-Mexican, pro-Russian conspiracy theorist, who confessed on videotape to sexual assault. Obviously, the Republican Party is sinking even lower now because President Trump is now endorsing this accused child molester wholeheartedly.
“By the way, not only is Roy Moore in accused child molester but let’s also remember that he is racist, bigoted...oh and by the way he’s anti-American.”
