Something I’ve said a lot here lately is that when someone is forced to defend the indefensible, yet tries to anyway, that’s when you’re going to get some incredibly outlandish answers or excuses to rather simple questions.
A great example of what I mean took place Wednesday night when a spokesperson for Roy Moore was asked five fairly simple questions by CNN’s Anderson Cooper, yet couldn’t answer any of them.
And they were not complicated questions. Does Moore still think:
- Barack Obama is not an American citizen.
- Muslims should not be allowed to serve in Congress.
- 9/11 happened because the United States distanced itself from God.
- Homosexuality should be against the law.
- That the United States is becoming the center of evil for embracing gay rights and same-sex marriage.
She wouldn’t — or simply couldn’t — answer any of them.
All she kept doing is rambling off talking points she had clearly rehearsed, while also claiming on a couple of occasions that Cooper was trying to slander Moore by simply asking his spokesperson to clarify if he still believes things the Senate candidate has said in the past.
Though leave it to a Republican to claim you’re trying to slander one of them — by asking them to answer for things they’ve said and done.
This is what I’ve been talking about since the allegations that Moore’s a child molester have sprung up. Even if you want to ignore the multiple credible accusations against him, based on nothing more than Moore’s stances on various policies and issues, he’s completely unfit for office. This is a man who thinks the Bible supersedes the Constitution, who’s been removed from office — twice — for ignoring constitutionally-backed rulings with which he disagreed.
Quite literally Moore seems to believe that his own personal views matter more than the laws of the United States or the rights protected by our Constitution.
I know it’s just over 15 minutes, but if you have the time, I would highly suggest everyone watch this interview. To watch someone who claims to believe in Roy Moore so much fail so miserably to answer simple questions about him is must-see television.
One of my favorite parts came when she claimed an “activist court” removed Moore from office, only for Cooper to smirk and mock the idea that judges in Alabama were somehow “liberal activists.” She also stumbled badly when Cooper asked her why people shouldn’t believe the women who’ve accused Moore of assaulting them in their teens considering that, upon removing him from office, a court unanimously found that he had been dishonest when he tried to block same-sex marriages in Alabama.
In other words, why believe someone with a known history of lying and pushing ridiculous conspiracies over women, several of whom voted for Trump, who’ve said he sexually assaulted them when they were as young as 14 years old.
Sadly, if you ask me, I still fully expect Roy Moore to win. The Republican Party and their voters have made it perfectly clear that they’d rather support a child molester than see a Democrat get elected.
