Several Republican senators have called for expelling Moore, should he be elected.
One of the few people who has staunchly backed Moore—after briefly wavering—is Steve Bannon, Trump’s former chief strategist and a reflexive opponent of the party mandarins.
Trump’s charge that Jones is weak on crime is doubly ironic.
Jones is a former prosecutor who put Klansmen behind bars; his opponent not only was twice removed from the state bench for violating the U. Constitution, but in the matter stands accused of committing a crime himself.
He has said that he did not “generally” date teenage girls, but has not specifically denied having done so, either.
One Alabama pastor even praised Moore’s past dating habits, saying, “He did that because there is something about a purity of a young woman, there is something that is good, that’s true, that’s straight and he looked for that.”On Tuesday, a reporter asked Trump what his message was to women. “I think it's a very special time because a lot of things are coming out. And I think it’s very, very good for women.”Yet the subtext of this remark is that he only thinks the revelations are good, and credible, when they target liberals and Democrats.
They talk about feeling broken or unworthy, that they’ve missed some sort of open time frame where they could lose their virginity and now they’re (metaphorically) screwed.
