Another morning, another accusation of molestation of Moore on a 16-year old.
What do you believe is his next step?
I believe Trump isn't saying anything because:
1. he doesn't want to lose the seat
2. he endorsed Luther Strange
BUT...he did endorse Luther and it is his thing to publicly bash someone who he didn't support no matter the fact that he'd be able to work with Donald on his big issues like taxes, finally building that wall, etc.
I would add
3. Bannon supports Moore and he doesn't want to openly oppose him, especially with no alternative candidate stepping up. It's a loser for him and he likes winning.
4. He is accused of accosting women, too.
(While not accused of molesting teenagers, his creepy behavior at teen beauty pageants has previously been reported. )
If he repudiates Moore, he is likely to get some backlash from Moore supporters about his own behavior. That is publicity even Trump wants to avoid. Besides it would besmirch his triumphant overseas trip--the biggest, the best, the greatest, nobody ever got the reception I got trip. You know, the one where he kowtowed to Xi, embraced the murderer Duterte, and was completely incoherent about Putin and Russia's interference in our election. He believes Putin believes he didn't do it and the US spy guys were hacks, but he believes the new spy guys (who agree with the the hacks--that Russia interfered in our election to help Trump.) Say what?
