Trump Has Privately Decided the Sexual-Assault Allegations Against Roy Moore Are Bunk

Source: The Daily Beast



Not only does the president endorse an accused child molester for Senate, he believes the ‘Roy Moore, D.A.’ yearbook signature of one alleged victim is likely fake.

President Donald Trump has privately told confidants over the past week that he firmly believes Roy Moore’s innocence and feels no hesitation at all about endorsing the embattled Alabama Senate candidate, three sources close to the president tell The Daily Beast.

Trump’s conviction sets him apart from other Republicans—including some Moore supporters —who have said they trust the accounts of the numerous women who have accused the former chief justice of the state Supreme Court of preying on them sexually when they were teenagers.

“This is not something he’s struggling with,” one senior White House official told The Daily Beast of Trump. The president has even begun adopting some of Moore’s more outlandish lines of defense to push back against accusations that the candidate’s guilt is beyond question.

Two of the sources, one working in the Trump administration and the other a friend of the president, noted that in recent conversations Trump has begun to stress that the “Roy Moore, D.A.” signature in the yearbook of a woman who publicly accused the candidate of sexual assault, is a likely forgery. The president has found the signature suspicious, according to these sources. Moore has stressed this, too. Experts, for their part, disagree.

2. In other late-breaking news, Trump now doubts global nuclear war would be all that bad.

"I'm not saying we wouldn't get our hair mussed..."

3. That's because he doesn't believe "sexual assualt" is a crime.

Obviously.

4. BS, drumpf doesn't believe in rape or assault, so Moore is auto cleared.

He thinks the women had it comin and should be happy or at least shut up. Just like he denies fraudulently and systematically cheating workers and vendors and his assult crimes and treason. He doesn't think it's a crime unless its done by someone else, someone he doesn't like. He is set to destroy us and the world on Putin's orders and is so stupid he doesn't realize he will be a destroyed himself.
