President Donald Trump commented on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Tuesday afternoon. He said the accused child molester "denies it.""He totally denies it, he says it didn't happen -- and you have to believe him also," the president said. "We don't need a liberal person in there -- a Democrat," he said referring to Alabama Democratic candidate Doug "Jones, I've looked at his record, he's terrible on crime. It is terrible on the border, it is terrible on crime, it is terrible on the military."
"I can tell you a fact," the president said. "We do not need somebody who is going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad on the military, bad for the Second Amendment."One reporter shouted out: "Is an accused child molester better than a Democrat?""Well, he denies it," the president replied. "Look at what is really going on, and all the things that have happened over the past 48 hours. He totally denies it, says it didn't happen, and you have to listen to him also. He said, 40 years ago, this did not happen.""Roy Moore denies it, that is all I can say," he explained upon further questioning. "And by the way -- he totally denies it."

I don't agree with Trump backing Moore now, but I can explain it: Trump wants to win above all else and is making a 'practical' decision, not an ideological one. 'If the WH can't push Moore out, we may as well back him and see if he can win '.— Jay Weber (@JayWeber3) November 22, 2017
The GOP caucus members are making an ethical call on Moore. Trump is making a 'practical' one: If we can't shove him out, then we'll back him. If the dem wins, it doesn't benefit us (me, Trump).— Jay Weber (@JayWeber3) November 22, 2017
I agree. Dems were imploding on this. Scrambling this week with Franken and Conyers. Stand aside and watch them scramble. https://t.co/YBxTcJbdIv— Jay Weber (@JayWeber3) November 22, 2017
