Trump Endorses Roy Moore For Alabama Senate Seat

by Countable | 12.4.17

What’s the story?

The week before the special election for an Alabama Senate seat, President Trump has tweeted out his endorsement of the controversial Republican candidate. GOP candidate Roy Moore, who is accused of molesting multiple teenage girls, is running neck-in-neck with Democratic opponent Doug Jones.

Early Monday morning, President Trump tweeted out this:

Moore responded on Twitter:

Meanwhile, NPR reports that some business leaders in Alabama are concerned about the repercussions to the business climate if Moore wins on Tuesday. Massive corporate boycotts came in response to a GOP-authored transgender bathroom bill in North Carolina, which led to the defeat of the measure. The same could happen in Alabama in response to a Moore win.

What do you think?

Do you think the president’s 11th hour endorsement of Moore will push him over the top? Do you think if Moore wins there will be repercussions for Alabama like there were in North Carolina?

    If, in order to achieve your goals, you need the help of a man who has twice been removed from his position for failure to comply with court orders, and currently faces multiple accusations of assault and harassment, maybe you should take a step back and have a look at your goals.

    Why would we expect anything more from this president. You lie down with dogs you wake up with fleas. This is a flea bitten administrations. Our morals have gone to the dogs.

    Roy Moore, who is no longer a judge, was kicked off the bench in AL twice for defying the orders of federal judges. He, like Trump, appears to believe he is above the laws of this nation. Electing him to the US Senate would complete the demise of the integrity of the legislative branch of our government. This Senate has acted against their own rules and the will of the people they represent since before this president took office. Allowing an accused pedophile to be seated in a branch of our government at one of the highest levels, despite the "will" of the voters of AL, would be the epitome of hypocrisy, even for this Congress. They have not listened to the will of the people on the ACA or tax reform. They want to start now?

    Roy should be Trump’s Vice President in the next presidential election. I call it the molestation ticket.

    The word is despicable when it comes to Roy Moore and Trump, and perhaps I can put the Republican Congress and Senate in the same word description. Never in my long life did I every think our politicians would stoop to such depths of deception. They are unfortunately putting party before people! Their donors are running our country. A very sad time in history!

    There are only two groups of people I believe deserve capital punishment. Corrupt politicians and sexual predators. So basically the the GOP.

    It is impossible for trump to do the right thing. There is no moral or ethical core in this man so to throw his support behind a man that has violated the constitution twice causing him to be tossed as a judge, stating he would not follow the constitution in the future, being known as a bigot, misogynist and child molester is not at all surprising. Not one member of trumps cabinet has been qualified. Not one member of his judicial nominations has been qualified. I especially like the one who’s never tried a case before. Why should it surprise me that a man who is under investigation would back a criminal.?

    If the people from the great state of Alabama were on the fence about voting a letch into the Senate, there should be heightened concern now after the King letch has endorsed him.. please protect the children of our country!

    Misogynous minds think alike. Shame on us if we're surprised! However, whether or not Congress will respond appropriately and quickly is now the question.

    And there you have it. Any so called christian or evangelical that supports Moore being elected is a bona fide hypocrite. Besides not recognizing the separation of church and state (it’s in the first sentence of the first article of the Constitution so OBVIOUSLY the founders thought it was the most important), they entirely lack simple morality and learned nothing about being a good human being as a child in ANY school...church based or not. Religious hypocrites are USELESS for purposes of human progress.

    We have a US President and sexual predator (who millions have witnessed via video and,subsequently, who heard him publicly admitting doing so) supporting another sexual predator who is running for the US Senator. How could anyone be surprised or more embarrassed? What Trump has done in distorting the true values of millions who he represents is simply, yes, “deplorable!”

    Good, at least the people of Alabama will know who NOT to vote for. Alabama is getting hit hard by all the toxic corporate America crap, and they are a good, honest people whose children are suffering. Some well-worded political ads from a strong independent candidate with a proven track record should do the trick. Not sure if a Dem could get elected, just yet in the rust belt, but an independent...

    What do you expect a person who has at least 13 woman complain about his sexual advances and behavior is supporting one of his kind. This is disgusting as is the way Republicans are supporting him because they want to keep the seat in the senate. It is more important to have a disgusting human being in the senate than uphold common decencies ... this country is sending a loud message to the world that bad behavior is rewarded ... we have not right to judge or pass comment on others when this type of thing happens. This country is better than this ...

    The Liar in Chief is having another temper tantrum because the Democrats backed out of his "tax" meeting. The gall of this wannabe, never gonna be president is intolerable. Why should any of us be surprised that Liar in Chief endorsed Roy Moore.. They're two peas in a pod. Two sexual deviants, without a moral bone in their bodies.

    Why the f&$k is Trump still in office as indictments are being handed down toDogs have better morals than these raping POS’s. Dogs don’t assault their own kind and definitely not pups. Moore should do the world a favor and take Trump with him. A murder suicide. T just landed in my city what I wouldn’t give for my sniper rifle right bout now

    Well, Alabama, let’s see what you do. Want to be remembered as the state who chose a child molester and sexual predator to represent them and set the laws of our great country? Up to you. I know what I’d choose.
