After weeks of silence on the matter, President Trump finally weighs in on the Alabama Senate race following accusations of sexual misconduct aimed at candidate Roy Moore.

Before leaving the White House for his Thanksgiving break, the president spoke to reporters about the embattled judge.

President Trump threw his support behind Moore, saying we don’t need a liberal Democrat in Alabama’s Senate seat.

When asked about the allegations, President Trump said Moore deserves to be heard just as much as the accusers.

“Look he denies it, I mean if you really look at what’s going on and you look at the things that happened over the last 48 hours, he totally denies it,” said the president. “He says it didn’t happen and you have to listen to him.”

The president also said Congress should release the names of politicians who have settled sexual harassment claims while serving in office.

    Point of law in this democracy! A person is innocent until proven guilty. Why not take a simple lie detector test for further evidence in both camps…?

    President Do-Nothing-But-Lie is golfing at the elitist Caucasian community of Mar-a-Lago again.
    And this racist fool had the nerve to say President Obama golfed too much?

    Lying, flabby, age-spotted kettle calling the pot black.

    HMMMM, why is OANN deleting my posts listing all the various Republican pedophiles… there are tons of them. Sexual assault and predation shouldn’t be about party. It should be standing up for decency. Something we clearly lack at the moment. Oh, and I would add there are tons of democrats who have done the same. Anyone who abuses a minor or anyone should be held accountable.

  • Bob

    And the list goes on… and on… and on. Feel free to google any of these names. There are many many ‘MOORE’… see what I did there. Oh… I would also add, there are plenty of democrats who’ve done just the same. Sexual assault and predation isn’t about party it’s about decency so let’s try to get back to having some.

  • cdb

    We don’t need liberal law makers anywhere in any government, but those dumb, stupid, and ignorant voters, who are always looking for free crap, keep voting for them.

  • Jack Green

    I believe Roy Moore should submit to a polygraph test run by a thoroughly vetted neutral agency. Although not admissible in court, they would influence my thoughts. If indeed those tests show he is tending to be truthful, his accusers should also be willing to do so.

  • brandehhh

    But if this was a Democratic Senator being accused of sexual misdeeds, would Trump also say for them to be listened to and believed? Not that I believe what is being said about Moore but the same expectations need to be expected from everyone. No wonder the dems are such a mess.

  • buddynoel

    The Washington Post left too much time between its fake story and the election. So now the story is starting to unravel and most of the allegations have been proven false already with the rest well on their way to being debunked. They gave enough time for other news people to uncover troubling info about the 14-yr-old (that she was living with her father, not her mother at the time) that calls the whole story into question. Maybe The Post thought they could turn the election on early voting, but this is Alabama, which has no such thing.

  • rottenrollin

    About time, Trump. You’re exactly right, don’t need more libby Dimmercrats in Alabama OR in DC.

  • Javanne

    We may not want another super liberal in the center, but Moore’s election will not guarantee Trump the vote in favor of his programs, like tax reform, by Moore, who has reason to oppose the GOP establishment. Trump’s comment shows he knows this and is trying to get Moore to apply the “let bygones be bygones” approach. He may be disappointed if McConnell carries out his threat to expel Moore from the Senate.

    • I. Forgot 2

      McConnell cant expel anybody on heresy. There is no evidence Moore did what he is being accused of. Let him try that stupidity and I promise he wont like the outcome.

  • Javanne

    Moore may have been convicted by the media and court of public opinion, but he is still innocent until proven guilty. If he is innocent, he should sue the Post and the women to force them to show proof of their claims. Otherwise, let the chips fall where they may on Election Day.

  • Thank_God_For_Guns

    Judge Moore is a huge problem for the GOP establishment. He can’t be bought, controlled or intimidated, but most importantly, he is not a quitter. He proved it time and time again.

    Even if I disagree with him on some of the social issues, I would vote for the guy like Moore over any of the McConnell’s RINO quislings and neo-Marxist Democrats.

  • Sonny Shaw

    Trump slaps McConnell in the face with endorsement of Judge Roy Moore of Alabama. MAGA!

  • a voice of concern

    GO MOORE 2017

    What amazes me is that any of these DEM or SWAMP REP politicians give a rats behind what others think.They find these lying idiots to make accusations thinking Christians will reject them with the slightest provocation when all they are doing is showing their hatred for Christians.

    GODSPEED PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP. 2020

  • CFLAP

    We don’t need them running our bureaucracy either Mr. President. You need to get to work handing out pink slips to Obama holdovers.

  • Paul Curto

    The Dems will throw millions against Moore to go along with the media blitz to assassinate Moore’s character without evidence through libel and slander. 45 will help him overcome.

  • Mountainhiker

    Bottom line, those that have been paid to attack Moore are now being proven to be liars, family members of the attackers are coming out saying the women are LYING. And of course we have the curse of Gloria Allred that is refusing to allow anyone to see the faked year book. Oh yeah, turns out some of the women are tied to the democratic party, you have to be suffering from demonic delusion to not see a problem with these attacks, INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY!

  • Amy

    I will stand behind Roy Moore.

  • Amy

    I stand with Roy Moore.

  • J. C. Smith

    I’d rather have a moral democrat than an immoral Republican, but since Moore is not the latter and the former is purely imaginary, I’m sticking with Roy Moore!

    • TexasDeplorable1134

      The former is a classic definition of an oxymoron.

  • KMA

    IMO The people of Alabama know there’s more at stake(U.S. security & POTUS agenda) than 40yo allegations. For that reason Roy Moore will win a very close race.
    IDK if it would be wise for President Trump to campaign for Moore?
    I would think campaigning from a distance would be better & safer.

  • RMCS Ret.

    I have no idea how this is going to play out, but yesterday I had a quick tour of AL as I drove from Tuscaloosa to North of the Huntsville area. That’s a pretty good chunk of the state and I saw very few election signs. In TX when there’s an election, there are signs all over the place. What I take from that is the allegations against Moore aren’t having much effect. The few people I talked to (and it was by no means an accurate sampling) told me the allegations were a bunch of bunk and there were things we weren’t being told. Accurate assessment? Who knows.

  • Section Ate

    Rev. Philip “Flip” Benham defended his “friend” & “buddy” Roy Moore’s pursuit of girls this way: “I think that, number one, you need to understand, 40yrs ago, what the ‘Sitz im Leben’ was like in AL. Judge Roy Moore graduated from West Point & then went on into the service, served in Vietnam & then came back & was in law school. All of the ladies, or many of the ladies that he possibly could have married were not available then, they were already married, maybe, somewhere. So he looked in a different direction & always with the [permission of the] parents of younger ladies . . . He did that because there is something about a purity of a young woman, there is something that is good, that’s true, that’s straight & he looked for that.”

    Amazin’. Simply amazin’.

  • Donald York

    There are a lot of Democrats in Alabama who still think that unions are their friends.

  • eladtoor

    Hey, Don, here’s a thought for you. Since raving evangelical child molesters are rabid republicans, why don’t you direct GrOPer recruiting efforts toward Catholic priests? They seem to have the ideal backgrounds to fit in with your group, and with the whole, powerful, wealthy Catholic Church lying and defending them from being sent to jail, which is the least they deserve, child-molesting priests are likely to be around for a while longer, and could become a stable influence in the GrOPer party, perhaps even replacing you.

    • Andrew Moore8

      After all that libtard whinning and crying and he is STILL YOUR president.

      • TexasDeplorable1134

        Both of us know they have never accepted that. 😛

        • Andrew Moore8

          Yup…..
          Donald Trump Inaugurations = 1
          Hitlery clintoon inaugurations = 0

          They are just going to have to accept it.

            Dont you just love when libs heads explode?? LOL!!

  • Big Al from Big D

    In a country where one is innocent until PROVEN guilty, I an appalled by the comments from the likes of McConnell, McCain and others. It also amazing that the accusation comes out after Judge Moore wins the Republican nomination. With regards to the latter, I smell a rat; a big rat.

    • DocHolliday

      McCain has brain cancer, so he gets a pass for irrational thought.

      Others have no excuse.

  • RJ

    We all know, Democ rats playing ugly and cheap politics.

  • southdfw

    ALL liberals, including the rino liberals, are scared of the Spirit of Truth found in Roy Moore!

    GO MOORE!

  • General Apathy

    “Moore deserves to be heard just as much as the accusers.”
    What a terrible notion president Trump, innocent until proven guilty. No wonder liberals hate you. lol

    • DocHolliday

      True.

  • He is correct elect Moore & if Moore is found guilty or not seated elect the next Republican in the new election.

  • maurinemwheatley

    ….I so agree…we do not need any more liberals in leadership…needless to say, we equally do not need any people serving who are guilty of sexual harassment or those who initiate it …I doubt we will ever know the complete stories in any of these situations. …except Clinton’s in the oval office of our White House!!!! and he’s still walking around like some hero to some and his supportive wife by his side equally deplorable…

    • Lorie Barnett

      If Moore gets elected, the democrats will use that against every Republican running in 2018. Y’all saw how the elections recently went. Republicans Lost In A Landslide. I Dont Think Its A Good Idea That He Gets Elected. He Probably Wont As I Heard The Democrat Is Way Ahead.

      • I. Forgot 2

        A landslide?? LOLOLOL!!!! You are dreaming and your TDS is showing.
        Alabama will elect Roy Moore. What you think is irrelevant.

      • You heard wrong. Moore is way ahead!

        • TexasDeplorable1134

          Take a look at who did the poll. The NRSC is an extension of the GOP Establishment.

          • DocHolliday

            See you at the poll, troll!

          • TexasDeplorable1134

            What! I was pointing out that the NRSC is the extension of the GOP Establishment. They have Moore LOSING by 12. Which we know is total BS. That why I said take a look at WHO did the poll. I’m disappointed you that you did not read my post correctly.

      • Andrew Moore8

        You also heard that hiltlery rotten clintoon was going to win the election by a landslide didn’t you?

      • DocHolliday

        Libs are desperate and will use whatever they can –to include unfounded accusations and lies, to further their political agenda. This will increased whether Moore is elected or not.

        The GOP will keep winning as America saw what transpired under Mr. Hussein Obama. No more.

  • boots and guns

    President Trump, Steve Bannon and Roy Moore have backed Mc’turtle into a corner. When Moore wins they will prove that the GOP is over for good. If Mc’turtle tries to investigate or stop Roy from doing his duties as he was elected to do, he will lose his seat as the majority leader, period. Check mate either way, good play boys!!

    Let me emphasize again, Bi-itch McConnell spent over $30 million dollars from his PAC trying to defeat Moore in the Alabama Republican primary. That’s right, McConman was trying to defeat the Republican front runner in Alabama.

    Moore of course, won against McConnell’s crooked yes man. That’s when the accusations started coming out against Moore and we have yet to see proof that any of it is true. Gloria Allred refuses to let her supposed evidence be examined. Can you smell a rat yet?

    Swamp man McConnell is terrified of Moore and I don’t think there is much he wouldn’t do to keep him out of Washington.

      I am still hoping that this emphasizes that ultimately it is up to the people of each state to make an informed decision on who should represent them in their own perspective state. This should not be decided by someone outside their jurisdiction to “suggest” who is eligible to represent them.
