President Trump‘s defense and seeming endorsement of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is so riddled with hypocrisy that it prompted an NBC host to address the issue with a “brutal question.”
“It is a brutal question, but one that requires asking in this political environment under this president,” NBC’s Katy Tur said on Meet the Press Daily this Tuesday. “Which does this White House view as worse, an accused pedophile or a Democrat?”
“This afternoon, we seemingly got our answer directly from the President,” she continued.
Q: What is your message to women? Trump: women are very special
— Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) November 21, 2017
Tur is referring to comments Trump made to the press on Tuesday has he headed off to Mar-a-Lago for the Thanksgiving weekend. Trump pointed out that Moore, who has been abandoned by GOP leadership, denies all the allegations against him — as if that’s a viable defense.
“He totally denies it. He says it didn’t happen. I do have to say, 40 years is a long time,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday, adding, “I can tell you one thing for sure, we don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat.”
“So, in a moment when more and more women are coming forward demanding that their stories be heard and believed, the President is suggesting that voters doubt Moore’s accusers — because his opponent is a Democrat? What kind of message is the President sending to women?”
