Trump Just Openly Campaigned for an Accused Pedophile

If there was ever a doubt that President Donald Trump is fully caping for his brother from another mother, Senate candidate Roy Moore, he cleared them all up on Saturday morning when he tweeted:


The tweet came on the heels of a lackluster campaign rally Friday in Pensacola, Fla., where the president blasted one of Moore’s accusers who claimed that Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teen. What has been at the center of Beverly Young Nelson’s claim is a yearbook that she claims Moore wrote a message in and signed. She has now acknowledged that she added the date to the inscription but insists that Moore wrote the message.

“How many people here are from the great state of Alabama?” Trump asked to applause and hooting, NBC News reports. “I have to say this. Did you see what happened today? You know the yearbook? Did you see that? There was a little mistake made. She started writing things in the yearbook.”

It doesn’t seem to bother Trump in the least bit that multiple women have accused the former Alabama Supreme Court justice of sexual misconduct. But why would it, considering that he was caught on tape admitting his penchant for grabbing random women’s vaginas?

At least the president is consistent and unashamed in his support of an accused sexual predator because he, himself, is an accused sexual predator, and you hang with—or, in this case, endorse—the people you know.

Oh, and if you’re wondering why the president is still rallying for a job he already has, it’s because he doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing and feels safest speaking in front of his supporters. No matter how toothless or rabble-rousing or Confederate-flag-loving they are, they are his base, and what else can you do when you don’t understand foreign policy, taxes or the language in any of the bills that come before you? You go back home to your people. The Budweiser-drinking, NASCAR-loving, Piggy Wiggly-shopping, stand-for-the-anthem-shouting, home sweet home.
