Roy Moore is a terrible human being who is part of a party that is more than happy to embrace terrible human beings and is led by a truly terrible human being. Thus, he will act like a terrible human being who will refuse to step aside no matter how much evidence comes out. I’m not expecting too many republicans to do more than say “they’re troubled” and then try to ignore it so they can pick up that seat. This is how it works now. And the White House knows it:
The White House reacted Friday to a series of sexual misconduct allegations leveled against Republican Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore, saying that President Donald Trump believes if they are proven true then Moore should “step aside.”
“Like most Americans, the president believes we cannot allow a mere allegation, in this case one from many years ago, to destroy a person’s life,” press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters on Air Force One en route to Da Nang, Vietnam. “However, the president also believes that if these allegations are true, Judge Moore will do the right thing and step aside.”
Moore has vehemently denied allegations reported by The Washington Post from four separate women, including one who accused Moore of engaging in sexual activity with her when she was just 14 years old in the late 1970s.
