President Trump’s rationale for continuing to support Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for the Senate in the Alabama, was simple when he offered it on Tuesday.
“We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat,” Trump said.
The contrast Trump drew, then, was this. Either Moore, accused of sexual assault by one woman who was 16 at the time and of attempted groping by a woman who was 14 when it happened, or Doug Jones, accused of being a Democrat.
Trump chose the former. He’s not alone: CONT.
