Trump Backs Roy Moore, Blasts Doug Jones As "A Pelosi/Schumer Puppet"

For the first time, President Donald Trump has endorsed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore after previously defending the embattled Republican in a series of offhand comments to reporters last month.

Last month, the Washington Post published a bombshell story including allegations from a woman who said she had sexually inappropriate contact with Moore when he was a 32-year-old assistant DA and she was a 14-year-old high school student. Since then, seven other woman have come forward to accuse Moore of pursuing them when they were teenagers.

Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations, saying they are politically motivated.

Until today, Trump had been unwilling to openly endorse Moore, though he did defend him and question the veracity of the women’s claims.

In a tweet, Trump argued that “Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama. We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more. No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!"

He later added: “Putting Pelosi/Schumer Liberal Puppet Jones into office in Alabama would hurt our great Republican Agenda of low on taxes, tough on crime, strong on military and borders…& so much more. Look at your 401-k’s since Election. Highest Stock Market EVER! Jobs are roaring back!"

Initially, the White House said Trump believed “the people of Alabama should decide” who deserves to win the seat. Later, Trump cast doubt on the allegations against Moore, saying the incidents in question happened more than 40 years ago.



I can tell you one thing for sure: We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, Jones,” he said.

“He denies it. Look, he denies it,” Trump said of the accusations against Moore.


“If 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 look, you have to look at him also."

The White House has said Trump won’t campaign for Moore - who faces allegations of sexually assaulting teens as your as 14, and pursuing relationships with other underage girls — although he is holding a rally on Friday in Pensacola, Fla., about an hour out of Alabama.

Additionally, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Sunday that the people of Alabama will decide whether Moore is elected.

"I'm going to let the people of Alabama make the call," McConnell said on ABC’s “This Week."

McConnell had previously said he would push for Moore’s expulsion if he does win next week’s special election.

While Moore's odds of winning took a hit after the allegations first surfaced, his standing in the polls has risen over the past two weeks. Moore now holds a solid five-point lead over Jones, according to the latest data from RealClearPolitics.

Trump initially supported Luther Strange, who was appointed by former Alabama Governor Robert Bentley to temporarily fill the senate seat previously held by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in a primary race against Moore, who handily won. Moore is considered a hero among the evangelicals of Alabama for refusing the remove a statue of the ten commandments he had installed in the Alabama Supreme Court when he was chief justice. The Alabama Republican Party has stood by Moore, and while many Republicans in the senate initially tried to distance themselves, their fervant opposition has died down.

wobblie's picture

Why accuse anyone of being a bot, unless you are a blind Trumpbot yourself?

Bill of Rights's picture

I admit it Trump the best thing we've had in years...Big fan ...ok your turn asshole.

This is the bargaining stage of political grief

  You are a piece of shit to suggest that Roy Moore is scum.  It is because we don't have people like him in government that corruption has become ubiquitous. 

  A small flame of decency appears and you can't get over yourself fast enough to extinguish it.

dirty fingernails's picture

Any supreme court judge who gets debenched multiple times for flagrant disregard for the US Constitution is *not* someone who should make laws. EVER. That should be an automatic disqualifier

jaxville's picture

  So it is against the constitution to swear an oath on the Holy Bible?

Looks like Trump is the real pedophile now. Not some half baked Trumptard symbolism but a full out endorsement of the lifestyle. No surprise I am sure Trump has banged his fair share of 14 your old boys and girls. He broke Ivanka in and turned her over to a guy so crooked he can't pass the secret service background check. Like Hillary Libtards, Trumptards are blind to all his crimes. Snowflakes.

D.T.Barnum's picture

"they" are going to try normalize pedophilia, maybe this is a part of their process. 

Bill of Rights's picture

Its already been normalized, 60 years worth of Liberal rule...Ya know free love and spirit. Not that I believe your old enough to remember..

And yet if you talk to Donald Trump, a different Epstein emerges. "I've known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,'' Trump booms from a speakerphone. "He's a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it -- Jeffrey enjoys his social life."

Cue the Trumptards acting like the Knights who say Ni when they hear "it"

Funny how all paid trolls are first to post irrelevant garbage. Money not well spent.

Roy Moore will win in a landslide.
Went to a family reunion at one of my Alabama cousin’s farm. Big feast & crowd from AL & GA.
None of the AL folks will be voting for ‘baby killer’ Luther Strange.

It really is an easy decision. 40 year old allegations from the Washington Post vs an admitted abortionist. Just watch.

My crotch itches's picture

Umm, I don't think Luther Strange is running..

dirty fingernails's picture

You're  just gonna confuse him if you keep using facts

Bay of Pigs's picture

Facts? All I see coming out of you is a bunch of spew.

dirty fingernails's picture

Lol, Damn, you guys are hard core deranged! I could say I'm  just trying to fit in by spewing shit, but Luther Strange isn't  running! LMAO you make retards look like 3D chess masters!

Bay of Pigs's picture

No. We just spot the trolls quicker here than what you’re accustomed to.

dirty fingernails's picture

LMAO. You idiots throw the troll label at each other over every dispute, despite fawning over another comment by the same poster. It isn't  trolls you are fighting, it's a difference of opinion. That shuts down brains on both sides of the aisle. Fuck you and your accusation.

Alabama, Georgia, home of incest.... and now the base of pussy grabbers of all ages. Pathetic. Yea, save the embryo as more pussy grabbing material is needed.

11b40's picture

Like the voters of AL say, where is the evidence?

11b40's picture

U R right. Need second cup of coffee, but Moore will win.

While President Hump wraps himself around the folly of indiscretions with minors on Capital Hill... "Rome" continues it's attempts at suiciding itself ( because it is not getting what it wants EVERYWHERE ELSE ( in the World!

Needless to say... The only LEADER that will fix this mess is "YOU"... "ME" and everyone outside of Washington D.C. that doesn't have a security clearance or a badge for "access" that's destroying U.S.!!!

Looks like the Trump Derangement syndrome born and bred dopes are up early today...must be first Meds of the day.

D.T.Barnum's picture

your triggered status is amusing.

Bill of Rights's picture

And your sentence structure is that of a four year old.

Dratpmurt's picture

Products of botched abortions have Post Traumatic Triggering, but it can be cured with the little blue pill. So don't be sad.

Bill of Rights's picture

Is this even english? ...Must be a private joke only morns get.

Got The Wrong No's picture

Dratmurt is just another 17 week Interchangeable SockPuppet, Media Matters, Stooge.  

dirty fingernails's picture

That Trump Derangement Syndrome affects you Trumptards in the inverse way of the libtards. Identity politics prevents critical thinking.

Perverts got to stick together.

Pure Evil's picture

I guess that's why Hillary, Bill, and Podesta all flew to Epstein's island paradise.

It's  amazing how their all infatuated with Roy Moore's indiscretions over 40 years ago, but somehow continue to overlook the Clinton's 40+ years of crimes.

Anyone remember Seth Rich?

dirty fingernails's picture

Did you forget that Trump made it clear he was a huge Epstein fan, too? There are no good guys in DC.

Pure Evil's picture

Who aint a fan of Epstein. Endless parties with top of the line celebrities and politicians. And you know its going to get raunchy when Bill and Hill show up cause they bring their own victims straight out of Haiti.
