This election 'is about decency — Roy Moore's opponent

Despite President Trump's endorsement and the Republican National Committee's decision to devote resources to Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore amid sexual allegations, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is not joining the band wagon.

"I think he's going to do very well". "We want strong borders, we want stopping crime, we want to have the things that we represent and we certainly don't want to have a liberal Democrat that's controlled by Nancy Pelosi and controlled by Chuck Schumer, we don't want to have that for Alabama".

Ivanka Trump, who found the Moore accusations credible, said this of their assailant: "There's a special place in hell for people who prey on children". The president has said he needs the Republican vote in the Senate to get his agenda passed.

He added that his position on Moore is "perfectly clear", saying that if "he were to be elected, I think he would immediately have an issue with the Ethics Committee, which they would take up".

The contradicting details that triggered the Washington Examiner to contact Moore's campaign have been described by Moore's spokesman as "really scraping the bottom of the barrel".

President Trump's "refusal to acknowledge [that he] just endorsed an alleged pedophile for the sake of 'a vote' tells me Roy Moore will be a Trump Puppet and America no longer has a moral compass under [Trump's] 'leadership'".

The papers, part of the Alabama Media Group, also used the editorial to endorse Democrat Jones.

Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon, Breitbart's executive chairman, attended a rally with Moore Tuesday evening.

Oswalt donned a cowboy hat to impersonate Moore, who faces multiple sexual misconduct allegations. Other top Republicans agreed, some insisting he was "unfit" to serve.

But a school might be willing to take a chance on him, though it's doubtful that it will be a program as prestigious as UCLA . The players also expressed gratitude to Chinese authorities and to President Trump for intervening on their behalf.

The difference is that Donald Trump's party has now gone all-in with an accused child molester, after that particular depravity seemed like a deal-breaker 3 weeks ago.

Asked for comment by TPM Wednesday, Sanders did not respond to say whether she stood by the remark. Trump wrote on Monday.

Steve Bannon called GOP leaders "cowards", while campaigning for Senate candidate Roy Moore in Fairhope, Ala.

None of Trump's four adult children have served in the military.

And Senator Orrin Hatch, who travelled with Trump on Monday to Hatch's home state of Utah, said he realistically didn't have any choice.

"You hid behind your religion". Republicans should vote unanimously to keep Moore from being on any committees.

The former federal prosecutor also said he believed that the many women who came forward to accuse Moore of sexual misconduct and assault were telling the truth.

"It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones".
