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.  ;D
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?

Man, oh man. Maybe Trump can get some of his inside guys to down re-arrange the deck chairs on the Titantic while he's at it!

Yesterday the Republican National Committee was still spending on Moore's campaign and had 11 operatives in the state working to get him elected. Today, the RNC terminated its relationship with him--no more money or assistance. I guess the last straw was when the "courageous" LOL Paul Ryan finally said Moore was not fit for office. Not a peep from Trump.

Quote
The RNC is pulling out of a joint fundraising agreement it had with Moore, according to a senior party official briefed on the decision. It is also canceling a field program it had set up ahead of the state’s Dec. 12 special election. The committee had about a dozen paid canvassers in Alabama working for Moore. It will no longer transfer any money to the race.


RNC cuts off Moore
https://www.politico.com/story/2017/11/14/rnc-cuts-off-moore-244904

The Cook Political Report, widely respected for its competent electoral analyses, called the contest a toss up and one poll even had the Democrat up by 4 points. The margin of error must be 25. Those folks need to spend more time in Alabama. Ole Roy may have molested young girls and trashed the Constitution, but them's Yankee problems. He's our boy regardless  because he knows how to rile up them Northern liberals and we eat that up with a spoon.   

The Republicans are about to face an all-consuming dilemma when Moore wins. He will get so much media attention that Trump will get jealous. Hmmm...that may be the ultimate wild card in this whole insane mess.

Late addition:
The shill has spoken. Hannity says Moore's explanations are insufficient and gives him 24 hours to shape up or its pistols at noon. Bannon has let it leak that he is beginning to think maybe molesting teenagers is not the best qualification to be a US Senator. Not to worry. A bunch of evangelicals gave Moore a standing ovation tonight after he spoke of his trials and tribulations because they know that God has forgiven him despite the fact that he has neither confessed his sins nor asked forgiveness. That truly makes him Trump's man since Trump also said he had never asked for forgiveness because he is perfect. (OK, I added the "he is perfect" part.)  But I bet Trump thought it.

A composite poll gives Moore a 3 point lead. It's in the bag.

Moore should step down. If found innocent, then postpone the vote on his position or have a re-vote if found innocent afterwards.

What is wrong with these celebs and politicians?
No matter how much we may disagree, doesn't mean I don't respect your opinion nor your freedom to speak it. Doesn't mean I don't have to agree with it either.

Oh, and HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!!!!

Kellyanne Conway endorses Moore. Trump embraces a child molester to ensure tax cuts for the rich, especially himself and his family.

Quote
During an uncharacteristically tough interview on Fox & Friends, Kellyanne Conway made her case for Alabama Republican U.S. Senate candidate and accused child molester Roy Moore over his Democratic opponent Doug Jones. Pivoting from a discussion about the GOP tax bill, Conway said that Jones “will be a vote against tax cuts,” adding, “He is weak on crime. Weak on borders. He’s strong on raising your taxes. He is terrible for property owners. And Doug Jones is a doctrinaire liberal, which is why he’s not saying anything and why the media are trying to boost him.” When co-host Brian Kilmeade asked if that meant she is telling people to vote for Moore, Conway paused before saying, “I’m telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through.”

If indeed Moore did these things - he needs to be punished severely.

Yes, he should. But the problem may be that its not surfacing publicly many years later. He should drop out and face private suits.

Instead, he's being cheered on by a President and this executive staff who are guilty of such offenses. Its now to the voter's to decide.

Trump is too big a coward to say it outright, but leaves no doubt that Roy Moore is his guy.

Quote
Though the president has thus far remained mum on the boiling controversy, he told reporters outside the White House, “We don’t need a liberal Democrat in there,” referring to Moore’s opponent Doug Jones. He added: “I’ve looked at his record, it’s terrible on crime, it’s terrible on the border, it’s terrible on the military.” [Jones has NEVER served in Congress and has no such record.] Furthermore, the president said [speaking of Moore], “He denies it. He totally denies it. That’s all I can say.” Asked if he believes Moore’s accusers, Trump said: “Forty years is a long time. He’s run eight races and this has never came up.”

In Trumpworld all you have to do to beat the rap is follow Trump's example and lie, lie, lie.

Trump and "coward" are now synonyms.

He needs to grow up, learn how to lead, and act his age rather than his glove size. Actually, a more fitting euphemism would be that he needs to "act his belt size" rather than his shoe size.

Next thing you're going to tell me is that Trump was born in Kenya.
