Electing Democrat As Alabama Senator Would Be 'Bad!'

Trump tweets "the last thing we need" in Alabama and the Senate is a "puppet" of the Democratic congressional leadership.

UPDATE 9:35 AM ET: The president sent out an additional tweet noting that he originally endorsed Luther Strange in the GOP primary while reiterating that he wanted Jones to be defeated. Now the important thing is that Alabama "can't let Schumer/Pelosi win this race". Trump contends Democrat Doug Jones - a former prosecutor - is "WEAK" on crime and border security, and "BAD" for the military, veterans, gun rights.

He was referring to Democrat Doug Jones, who is running against Moore to fill the Senate seat left open when Trump named Jeff Sessions attorney general.

Moore and Jones are opponents in a special election to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions to become the U.S. attorney general.

A White House official clarified to The Times that Trump believes Moore should exit the race if the allegations are true.

Although Trump hasn't flat out endorsed Moore, this is not the first time he has effectively done so by harshly criticizing his opponent.

Girl Scouts: 'She doesn't owe anyone a hug'
The Girl Scouts pointed out that the conversation might not be an obvious one - even if it is important. Beth Gray has two daughters and said she tells them to only hug people they intimately know.

In an interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York, Ms McDaniel said the claims against Mr Moore are concerning - but that Alabama officials have maintained he can not be replaced on the ballot. Trump was annoyed by his daughter's comments and said to Oval Office aides, "Can you believe this?" according to The New York Times.

Her words quickly became part of Jones' campaign ads in Alabama.

The Post further reported that three other women, then aged between 16 and 18, now also allege that Moore, described as a 'firebrand judge', pursued them when he was in his early thirties. "Now, they are women, witnesses to us all of his disturbing conduct". It closed by naming two more of his accusers. "He's definitely trying to throw a lifeline to Roy Moore". But he still has the endorsement of much of Alabama's Republican establishment.

If Moore wins the December 12 special election, for the old seat of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said that the Ethics Committee will investigate the allegations and the Alabamian could face an expulsion vote.

Several Republicans have denounced Moore and called for him to exit the race, but President Trump has declined to distance himself from the Senate candidate.
