Admitted sexual batterer Donald Trump said today that US Senate candidate Roy Moore deserves the benefit of the doubt regarding allegations that he preyed on teenage girls in his thirties because “he totally denies it.”
Endorsing the accused child molester, Trump opined that former federal prosecutor Doug Jones, who convicted the Ku Klux Klan members behind the 1968 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, is “terrible on crime.”
I can tell you one thing for sure, we don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, Jones — I’ve looked at his record, it’s terrible on crime, it’s terrible on the border, it’s terrible on the military. I can tell you for a fact we do not need someone that’s going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad with the military, bad for the Second Amendment.
Trump indicated that he might do a campaign event with Moore before the December 12 special election to fill the seat Jeff Sessions vacated when he became Trump’s attorney general.
Other things he’s commented on during that time:
1.) LaVar Ball
2.) Marshawn Lynch
3.) Elephant trophy ban
4.) Jeff Flake(y)
5.) Al Franken
6.) Being “forced” to watch CNN https://t.co/OVvGNjgGyH

Trump, who was elected despite allegations by 16 different women that he had groped or otherwise harassed them in the past, seemed to endorse the conspiracy theories and denials being propagated by the Moore campaign.
“If you look at what is really going on, and you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours, he totally denies it,” Trump said. “He says it didn’t happen, and you know, you have to listen to him also. You’re talking about, you know, he said forty years ago this did not happen.”
That is very different from what his daughter Ivanka said last week. “I’ve yet to see a valid explanation and I have no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts,” she told the Associated Press.
Trump’s deputy assistant and Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short seemed to speak for the White House when he said: “We are uncomfortable with the explanations that Roy Moore has given to date.”
But Trump has clearly made a completely different calculation from everyone else in his administration. He thinks that a Republican child molester would vote more in line with what he wants than a Democrat famous for prosecuting Klansmen would.
It’s easy to see why an alleged serial sexual abuser would have such priorities. It’s also easy to see how the so-called president who said that neo-Nazis and white supremacists were “very fine people” could rationalize calling someone who put Klansmen in prison as “terrible on crime.”
Meanwhile, retired Gadsden police officer Faye Gary told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell today that law enforcement officers were advised to keep an eye on Roy Moore at high school stadiums.
“We were also told to watch him at the ball games and make sure he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” Gary said. Rumors flew “not only in our department but at the courthouse too.”
