Trump Officially Endorses Moore for Alabama’s Senate Seat

Trump Officially Endorses Moore for Alabama’s Senate Seat

Moore faces many accusations of sexual misconduct.

Despite numerous sexual misconduct allegations, President Donald Trump has endorsed Roy Moore for the Alabama special senate election, which will take place on December 12.

Moore has faced numerous accusations of not only preying on teenagers when he was in his 30s, but of sexual harassment and assault.

Moore is running against Democrat Doug Jones.

Trump has shown hesitancy in supporting Moore since the accusations have surfaced. He also supported Moore’s opponent Luther Strange in the GOP primary.

Trump also had said he would not campaign for Moore, but now he will travel to Pensacola, FL, which is close to Alabama’s border. From CNN:

In the initial aftermath of the report, Trump remained mum in public and his staff suggested the President did not support Moore because he was not campaigning in Alabama. But last week, the White House announced that Trump will hold an event in Pensacola, Florida — just 25 miles from the Alabama border — later this week. Late last month, he all but endorsed Moore.

“He denies it. Look, he denies it,” Trump said of 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.”

Others in the GOP have revoked their support for Moore, but as the election draws closer, some have changed their minds:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, for instance, told reporters in November that he believed the women who accused Moore of sexual harassment, and urged him to withdraw from the Senate race. But on Sunday, he said the people of Alabama should “make the call” on Moore.

All of this came to light last November after The Washington Post heard about stories of Moore targeting young girls when he was in his 30s. The first that dropped was about Leigh Corfman, who said Moore assaulted her when she was just 14.

On Sunday, Professor Jacobson blogged that polls have shown Moore in the lead against Jones. Polls have also shown that Moore achieved what he needed to in order to survive: reasonable doubt. A WaPo poll found that 35% of likely votes in the Alabama electorate “think Moore did make unwanted advances on teenage girls.” The poll found that 37% of the votes “are unsure or have no opinion.”

A CBS/YouGov poll discovered that 53% of Alabama voters “say the allegations against Moore are a concern, but that other things matter more.

The Trump endorsement may boost Moore farther ahead of Jones since 96% of those who will vote Moore approve of Trump.

Last month, Gloria Allred placed one of Moore’s accusers, Beverly Nelson, in front of the camera and claimed the victim had a yearbook supposedly with Moore’s handwriting. At the time, Jacobson blogged about Allred’s “refusal to produce” the yearbook “for forensic inspection.” In his post yesterday, Jacobson noted that no one still has not handed over the yearbook and “Allred has gone to ground and hasn’t been heard from recently.”

This has given Moore a louder voice to deny all these allegations. There has also been no new accusations or evidence.

However, we are still a week away from the election. As we have learned, anything can happen.

Seven days to go. I wonder what’s left in the McConnell / Democrat bag of tricks?


    They were overconfident, and they shot their wad too early.

    Trump has flaws, but one of his strengths is an uncanny sense of timing. He knows to jump in just when it starts to look like a sure thing, but still before the rest of the herd has figured it out. Very low risk play, with high reward.

    Or to put it succinctly, always go with a winner the instant you’re sure who the winner is going to be.

      Plus this has really ripped the fake masks off all the liberal Hollywood/Democrat Party molesters!

      “Democrat Party faces many accusations of sexual misconduct.” – There, fixed it for you.


    Yes, my first thought was “Well, if anyone has evidence they’ve held back until the last minute we’ll see it today.”

heh – the yearbook which has still not been handed over – I would bet good money that any serious analysis of that “signature” would show that the ink was barely dry when Allred dragged it out to “prove” what she said happened 40 years ago.

So obviously no analysis will be allowed to be done, and sooner or later (maybe already) the Magical Yearbook will somehow disapear, and of course it will be intimated that Nefarious Conspirators with Moore were of course responsible. Because they’re magic and can do things like that.

    The threatened Moore law suits could produce it in discovery.

    If they ever were filed. Which they won’t be.

    Let Honest Dan’s guy in Lubbock take a look at it.

    That is, of course, the obvious suspicion.

    Moore’s side was not helped by the ridiculous falsehoods circulated by him and his supporters, e.g. the claim that the “additions”, if that’s what they are, were made in a different color ink from the original. But just because they’re in the same color doesn’t mean they were made at the same time. Any serious answer can only be had by analyzing the original document. There ought to be chemical differences between 40-year-old and 40-day-old writing, even if the book has lain closed for most of that time, so the older writing was not exposed to air.

    That is, of course, the obvious suspicion. Allred’s pretense not to understand this is clearly phoney, and casts further suspicion on her case. She pretended that the Moore side’s claim were that the yearbook was faked 40 years ago to set Moore up now, and poked the obvious fun at it since it’s such a ridiculous notion. But of course that’s not the claim at all.

It looks like AL is going through what the country went through last November. Hold their noses and vote for the lesser of two evils. As with the case of Trump winning, it is turning out to be much better and much worse than I expected. He is definitely making the right changes and returning our nation to its founding principles. But at the same time, he is demeaning the office and himself. I would pay twitter to cancel his account!

    rabidfox in reply to inspectorudy. | December 4, 2017 at 9:32 pm

    President Trump’s twitter activities have been far more positive than negative. He is right in not letting the MSM define the battle space.

This is the first time I think Trump has taken the lower path.

The Clintons sail where public sentiment takes them.

Trump makes his own wind based on what he thinks is right. Negative press and polls be damned and that’s why America loves him. So if Moore was facing a lot of false accusations, Trump (a month ago)should have said the accusations sound like last minute desperation hustled out to turn sentiment.

This waiting till the polls change to back him is the game of cowardly swamp dwellers.

    I have to agree unfortunately, it especially chaffs regarding women. I tend to believe this was a political hit job, but my understanding is Moore was winning, not sure why he felt he needed to
    do this.

    Mac45 in reply to Andy. | December 4, 2017 at 12:58 pm

    Trump backed Luther Strange, not because he had any affection for the man, but because McConnell wanted him over Moore and Trump wants McConnell to pass his agenda. This is politics. Remember, Trump is pretty apolitical. His goal is to revitalize America through the stimulation of US manufacturing. Everything in his agenda is geared toward that goal.

If/When Moore wins the election this is going to look very VERY bad for McConnell and his girlfriend Ryan.

People will asking why exactly they were working so hard to give the seat to Democrats. Its not gonna be pretty!

    rabidfox in reply to mailman. | December 4, 2017 at 9:34 pm

    And it will get really REALLY ugly if McConnell tries to deny Moore his Senate seat given the revelations about the tax payer funded slush fund the McConnell must have known about.

“… preying on teenagers when he was in his 30s…”

This kind of indicates your bias in this matter. Would you identify the behaviors of the teenagers involved, or any younger woman who dated an older man, as PREYING on older men? I mean, these young women got a free meal at good restaurants, something that a senior in high school probably could not afford, for nothing more than a kiss, if that. The two accusations of improper contact are circling, or have already gone down, the drain. What is good for the goose is good for the gander [to paraphrase].

As none of the allegations [all two of them] have been proven AND the only alternative to Moore, at this point, is a Democrat, the President SHOULD endorse him both in his position of the titular head of the Republican Party and as a man who needs Republicans to help him pass his agenda.

    Tom Servo in reply to Mac45. | December 4, 2017 at 7:46 pm

    The Washington Post today produced a graduation card from one of the women, in which Moore had written “Happy Graduation! I wish you all the best!” (or something similar) as Proof that Moore was an evil, evil person.

Not preying, but rather courting, with one cut short following discovery.

That said, the age gap is not progressive (i.e. monotonic), but it does change, and each successive generation falls outside the evolutionary envelope.

In any case, Americans are not Pro-Choice, so there is a concern for due process, which implies a presumption of innocence, and a constitutional principle of proportion. The one piece of evidence (e.g. preponderance of allegations) from several decades earlier is circumstantial, hearsay, and notably inconsistent.

“A CBS/YouGov poll discovered that 53% of Alabama voters “say the allegations against Moore are a concern, but that other things matter more”

Let me say this not just as Republican voter who has watched the polling over many cycles including the one in 2016 but a holder of a BS in Statistics who has classes in among other things Sampling.

You are never going to get answer to a question that reflects badly on the person being polled in any number that approaches the true number in reality.
If you poll things like masturbation, do you think a person wants to tell a person how much they enjoy masturbation, do it all the time etc.

This is the problem with trying to poll on a morality question like “Do you believe the accusers of Moore”.
Didn’t we learn not to do this with people admitting they voted for Trump? Why did the exit polling look like it was all over the map? Because people don’t want to tell you why they do things if those aren’t an acceptable opinion in polite society.
I would say that if Moore’s polling on this question is 50% or over that number is WAY higher if you had them connected to a lie detector machine.

I wish people would just stop thinking polls have the ability to delve deep into people’s secret beliefs when they weren’t even accurate for a surface question like voting for Trump that people perceived was uncomfortable.

There is a push by the Soros likes to register previous felony’s and illegals. If it is close, there could be an issues. Projections are 5 K of votes.

The pro Moore polls from unusual sources are probable designed to suppress Moore turnout (Why should I bother to vote. He is going to win anyway.)

    murkyv in reply to davod. | December 4, 2017 at 9:13 pm

    I have wondered if the media themselves didn’t cost Hillary the election for the very reason you just gave.

It boils down to two accusers and from what I have read their accusations are suspect. Insofar as dating girls 15-20 years younger it was not illegal, as long as they were at least 16 years old. At one time in this country marrying a girl younger than 16 years old was not illegal. All they had to do was lie about the girls age. Proof. In an arranged marriage my mother, age 14, was married to my father, age 43. Thank God this is now condemend.

    Terence G. Gain in reply to Omafro. | December 4, 2017 at 5:48 pm

    And none of those young women he dated accuse Moore of behaving inappropriately. I think that for a 30 year old to date a teenager is creep but supporting partial birth abortion is creepier.

They attacked Moore for first meeting his wife when she was a teenager. But Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal hit on his future wife when she was just 15 and he was in his 30s

Terence G. Gain | December 4, 2017 at 5:45 pm

Moore does not face many accusations of sexual misconduct. He faces three, two of which are clearly not credible. The hird accusation is dubious. The apparent inability of just about everyone but me to distinguish between sexual assault and Moore’s rather sad search for a virgin is distressing.

“Moore faces many accusations of sexual misconduct.”
But thankfully, none of them are true.

The other thing everyone seems to skip over is doug jones. Scum of the earth.
Like hildabeast, he’s so despicable that Alabama would vote for anyone over him in a heart beat.
Imagine if the dems actually had some actual middle of the road dino’s to run against Moore. Story might be a bit different.
