Donald Trump is “very happy” that so many politicians are “being exposed” as sexual predators:

But when it comes to Roy Moore, well, he’s not as interested in the exposure part:

We don’t need an alleged pedophile in there, either.

Denial is not a defense.
How often do people credibly accused of child molestation admit it? https://t.co/lMhmPRTTN9

He doesn't totally deny everything, though. He admitted to Hannity that he knew a number of the women in the Post story & wouldn't explicitly deny dating teenagers. https://t.co/Fu87LuO5Uo

Trump says Moore denies the charges and that must be taken into account, but this remark negates that sentiment. Even if Moore owned his actions, it wouldn't matter. https://t.co/xd8w5x0tPb

Moore can deny until he’s blue in the face, but there’s no denying that the evidence against him is quite damning, to say the very least.
Departing WH, Pres Trump comments on Roy Moore Senate race: Says “we don’t need a liberal Democrat in that seat.”

"We don't need somebody who is soft on crime like Jones," @realDonaldTrump says — making the evolution to the full embrace of Roy Moore.

You know what we need even less? A bigoted child molester in that seat.
If you want someone to blame for giving that seat to Democrats, blame Bannon and all the people who promoted Moore during the primaries. https://t.co/DvJ2pC8LFz

Doug Jones is terrible at crime but Roy Moore is really good at it.

Nor do we need a child predator. https://t.co/CrPkK8PN4r

Being a pedophile is a crime. https://t.co/d0vZyXSbIh

In other words, better a sexual predator than a Democrat? That’s shameful.
— Bill Cullen (@oracle_head) November 21, 2017
Donald Trump just said that Doug Jones is "terrible on crime" while effectively endorsing Roy Moore, who has been fired twice as a judge and has a history of sexually assaulting minors.
You can't make this up.
— Josh Jordan (@NumbersMuncher) November 21, 2017
So it's an endorsement. Because a child molester is better than a "liberal democrat". This will play well with those whose raison d etre is "F*ck the Left", "New Rules". Bye bye GOP.
