Trump backs Roy Moore despite sexual assault allegations

NEW YORK POST – BOB FREDERICKS

President Trump on Tuesday gave an implicit endorsement of Alabama Senate candidate and accused perv Roy Moore, saying, “we don’t need a liberal democrat in that seat.”

The president’s most expansive comment on the race came as he left the White House for a Thanksgiving vacation at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Asked about the allegations against Moore, the president replied, “Moore denies it.”

Meanwhile, Doug Jones, the Democrat running against Moore has unveiled a tough new attack ad — quoting Ivanka Trump’s pointed slap at the accused perv.

“There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children and I have no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts,” the ad states, recycling the first daughter’s quote from last week.

The ad also quotes Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who declared , “I have no reason to doubt these young women” at a House Judiciary Committee hearing last week.

Also quoted is Alabama GOP Sen. Richard Shelby, who announced that he would “absolutely not vote for Roy Moore.”
