Trump faces big choice on Moore's fate

Source: The Hill




BY JONATHAN EASLEY AND JORDAN FABIAN - 11/14/17 06:00 AM EST

President Trump is set to play a decisive role in the Republican battle over Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore — if he chooses to do so.

Trump, who so far has declined to directly address the allegations against Moore, is facing pressure from both sides. Senate Republicans signaled on Monday that they want nothing to do with Moore and will work to prevent his seating, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) saying he believed Moore’s accusers.

Key parts of Trump’s political base, however, are sticking with the former chief justice of Alabama’s state Supreme Court. Breitbart News and Trump’s former White House strategist and political guru Stephen Bannon are both fighting for Moore, who remains the favorite in Alabama — a state Trump won in last year’s election by 28 points.

Trump’s instincts would also appear to guide him toward Moore — despite the fact that he campaigned for the conservative’s GOP opponent in the Republican primary.

1. Hmm, support a serial child molester or not?

Such a tough decision. Wonder where Dolt 45 will come down on the issue?

3. Cheeto should back him

... because then he'll look like an idiot (once again) when the Senate kicks Moore out.

According to Rachel Maddows, they already have enough votes in the Senate to deny him a seat.

4. Moore's a man after Trump's own heart

Remember him bragging about going into the Miss Teen USA dressing room?

Is he going to tell the GOP what to do in Congress?
