Well, there it is. Donald Trump, the President of the United States, said he’d rather have an accused pedophile in the senate than a ‘liberal democrat”.
Trump threw his support behind Roy Moore, despite allegations of sexual misconduct lodged against the Republican Alabama Senate candidate.
“We don’t need a liberal Democrat in the seat,” Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House.
“He denies it. He totally denies it,” Trump said of the accusations against Moore, noting the alleged incidents took place around 40 years ago.
