Donald Trump Endorses Accused Pedophile Roy Moore


Until today Donald Trump has remained tight lipped when it came to Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

He had dodged questions about the embattled nominee who has been accused of no less than seven acts of sexual misconduct, mostly with underaged girls the youngest being 14 years old.

The reason being is that if Trump comments about Moore or his alleged sexual assault it will open him up to questions about the seventeen cases of sexual misconduct that have been levied against him.

But on Tuesday Trump threw caution to the wind and decided to address the allegations against the Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore nearly two weeks after the first accounts were reported.

The exchange occurred while Trump and his wife were leaving the White House to go to his Mar-a-Lago resort for a five day Thanksgiving break.

As the reporters peppered Trump with the same questions that had been lobbed at him for close to 14 days he all but endorsed Moore even after repeated previous statements from the White House  saying that the administration’s position is that the voters in Alabama should decide.

Heres how it went down...


REPORTER...

"Are you ready to talk about Roy Moore?"

TRUMP...

"Yeah, I’ll be talking about him."

REPORTER...

"Well, what do you think about his candidacy?"

TRUMP...

"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 somebody that’s going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad for the military, bad with the Second Amendment."

REPORTER...

"Is Roy Moore, a child molester, better than a Democrat?  He’s an accused..."


TRUMP...

"Well, he denies it. Look, he denies it. I mean, 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. He says it didn’t happen. And you know, you have to listen to him, also. You’re talking about... he said, 40 years ago this did not happen."

REPORTER...

"Are you going to campaign for him?"

TRUMP...

"I’ll be letting you know next week. But I can tell you, you don’t need somebody who’s soft on crime like Jones."

REPORTER...

"What is your message to women, sir, during this pivotal moment in our country where we’re talking about sexual misconduct, you’ve had your own allegations against you..."

TRUMP...

"He... let me just tell you, Roy Moore denies it. That’s all I can say. He denies it, and by the way, he totally denies it."

When asked if he had a message to women, in light of recent torrent of sexual harassment allegations against powerful men, Trump said he was “very happy” for women...


TRUMP...
"Women are very special. I think it’s a very special time, because a lot of things are coming out and I think that’s good for our society, and I think it’s very very good for women, and I’m very happy a lot of these things are coming out and I’m very happy it’s being exposed."

You can watch the back and forth here...



Despite how "special" Trump thinks women are the official White House position has been that any and all women that have accused Trump of sexual misconduct were are "all liars".

Meanwhile, at a Moore campaign rally on Tuesday held to discredit the women who have come forward Stan Cooke, a Moore supporter and Alabama pastor said...

Allegations are words. They are not facts. They are not indictments and they are not charges.

Eight women would disagree and so would Roy Moore if the statute of limitations on his alleged crimes was thrown out.
