Donald Trump throws his support behind alleged child molester

President Trump finally broke his silence on GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore’s alleged history of sexually harassing teen mall employees and sexually assaulting underage girls. On Tuesday afternoon, the president told reporters that he is throwing his support behind a guy who was reportedly banned from the local mall for creeping out the girls who worked there.

“We don’t need a liberal Democrat in the seat,” Trump said before boarding Marine One. “He denies it. He totally denies it. And by the way, he denies it.”

Trump, who himself is an accused sexual predator, trashed Democratic candidate Doug Jones as “soft on crime” and dismissed the Moore allegations because they took place in the late ’70s and early ’80s.

“40 years is a long time,” the president told reporters.

So is four years.
