The high drama of the great state of Alabama has rolled on through the week, once again, and now President Trump is weighing in.
Conservative icon Judge Roy Moore is currently locked in a battle with liberal democratic Doug Jones for the Alabama senate seat that was vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions upon his appointment to the Trump administration. Moore, who is a real-deal, drain the swamp bastion of right wing will, represents a serious threat to the status quo in Washington D.C., and as such as has bore the brunt of Deep State character assassination attempts throughout the special election.
Just last week, however, things took a serious turn when 40 year old accusations of sexual misconduct conveniently surfaced just in time for RINO shills such as Mitch McConnell to call for his resignation from the race.
This transparent attempt to stymy President Trump’s anti-D.C. agenda has merely galvanized the Alabama voters who have had Moore’s back throughout the tawdry ordeal. Now, President Trump is directly addressing the obvious smear campaign by coming to Moore’s aid.
“President Donald Trump signaled support for embattled Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, slamming his Democratic opponent as a ‘liberal democrat.’
“’We don’t need a liberal democrat in that seat,’ Trump said, pointing out that Democrat candidate Doug Jones had a terrible record on issues he cared about.
“’I’ve looked at his record. It’s terrible on crime. It’s terrible on the border. It’s terrible on the military,’ Trump said. ‘I can tell you for a fact, we do not need somebody that’s going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad with the military, bad for the Second Amendment.’”
“When asked about the allegations of Moore’s sexual misconduct with high school aged girls, Trump pointed to Moore’s denials.
“’He totally denies it. He says it didn’t happen,’ Trump said, noting that the alleged incidents took place over 40 years ago.”
The President’s support for Moore has been inferred in the past, but this direct statement will certainly help to shore up the mooring of the candidate’s base.
For far too long President Trump and his agenda, in which Moore fits perfectly, have been under attack from nefarious forces within the republican party. Men such as Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have proven time and again that they are far more interested in protecting their own pockets than they are in serving the American people. The election of Donald Trump and the ascension of Roy Moore to the national stage both signal that a change is coming to Washington…and that scares the living hell out of these Deep State dunces.
