Trump stands firm in support for Roy Moore
The Auburn Plainsman ^ | November 26, 2017 | Tracy Wilkinson, Tribune Washington Bureau

Posted on 11/26/2017 3:08:29 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

President Donald Trump Sunday reiterated support for Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama, despite numerous allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment against him

"We can't let Schumer-Pelosi win this race," Trump posted on Sunday morning. He was referencing Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who head the Democratic contingents in their respective chambers of Congress.

Numerous women have come forward to accuse Moore, an ultra-conservative Republican, of various degrees of sexual harassment, including assault, when he was in his 30s more than 30 years ago. One of the accusers was 14 years old at the time.

Trump backed Moore's opponent, Luther Strange, in the Republican primary, but Strange lost to Moore. Now, Trump says, the party cannot afford to allow Democratic candidate Doug Jones to win. A Jones victory could threaten upcoming Senate votes, Trump's aides have argued, even though whomever wins the Dec. 12 special election would probably not be seated in time to vote on a Republican tax plan.

"Liberal Jones would be BAD," Trump said. "The last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate 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 [sic] TO THE SKY. Jones would be a disaster!"(continued)

Trump knows that an imperfect conservative is preferable to a perfect liberal.

We can’t let Schumer-Pelosi-Turtle win this race.

I say win the seat and put himself up again in 2018 to finish the last 2 years of the term. Rub their noses in it. It may cost us some money but Mconnell and his ilk need a cutting down.

What could really help Judge Moore would be a caravan of Flake, the two McCs, and Jebbie Bush coming into AL to campaign for Doug Jones.

A perfect liberal is a contradiction in terms.

This is a three-year term. It comes up again in 2020.

Unlike Ted Cruz who initially supported Moore but dropped him like a bad habit as soon as the negative stuff began, Trump has been steadfastly behind Moore because of the importance of keeping this Senate seat away from the Dems.

Interestingly, The Birmingham News gave front page coverage to the hate-filled lies Charles Barkley spewed about Judge Moore, but no mention of President Trump’s comments on Doug Jones.

The Trussville Tribune, a small hyper-local paper in a city near Birmingham has done an excellent job with fair and balanced coverage of Judge Moore.

Who says Roy Moore is an imperfect conservative?

A bunch of left-wing liars, that’s who!

It is up to the accusers to prove their accusations or shut the Hell up?

Trump is a grown up with a functioning brain, Cruz not so much.

I really don’t understand what the media wants Trump to do, come out in support of the Democrat LOL..this is the Senate, Trump needs the Senate to stay Republican otherwise Dems will be one step closer to impeaching him, so these loons want President Trump to say “Oh what the heck, vote Democrat”

Cruz dropped Moore when the yearbook was introduced. No word from Cruz since the yearbook entry was shown to have been doctored/a fraud.

So do I. There isn’t a shred of proof, and I am deeply suspicious of something that comes up just before an election and can’t be proved or disproved.

I say this as somebody who has been a victim of this sort of thing, and after all these years it’s a dead issue as far as I’m concerned.

Even if he did what he is accused of doing... who among us is the same person we were 40 years ago? Sorry, it’s just not relevant. I stand with Judge Moore.

The attack on Roy Moore was a proof-of-concept of the attack they have planned for Trump.

If Trump goes down there and holds a rally for Moore he might break 60%

Agreed.
