Roy Moore‘s last campaign event was certainly his weirdest.
As you surely know, the Alabama senatorial candidate has been riddled with controversy as he’s been accused of pursuing women back when they were minors. Despite previously admitting to being familiar with at least two of the accusers, the GOP candidate/alleged child molester has since decided to follow in Donald Trump‘s footsteps and deny, well, everything.
In fact, during Monday night’s rally, the 70-year-old attempted to convince the public that the allegations against him were just “fake news.” The former state judge told the crowd:
“I want you to understand this. The Washington Post put out this terrible, disgusting article, saying I had done something. I want you to understand something. They said these women ├óΓé¼┬ª had not come forward for nearly 40 years, but they waited until 30 days before this general election to come forward.”
Yeah, just to clarify, these women came forward when they realized a predator may actually become a senator. Smh.
Roy’s wife Kayla attacked some “fake news” stories as well, as she went after those who accused her husband of being racist and anti-Semitic. Specifically, Mrs. Moore noted that Roy has hired many black employees and has Jewish friends. She explained:
“Fake news will tell you that we don’t care for Jews. One of our attorneys is a Jew. We have very close friends that are Jewish.”
How is this real life?? Just because you know someone who is black and/or Jewish, that doesn’t immediately prove you’re not racist.
Sadly, this wasn’t even the most bizarre part of the evening. That moment came when Roy’s Vietnam War buddy Bill Staehle got up to tell an anecdote about the time he and Moore ended up in child brothel. Again, WHAT?????
Apparently, at some point during the war, the twosome were lured to a “private club” by an officer who was celebrating the last night of his tour. Rather than partaking in the unsavory activities, Bill claims Roy was horrified by the misconduct occurring in the establishment. Staehle shared:
“We got in his Jeep, he drove, he knew where he was going. And he took us to this place, which turned out to be a brothel. We walked inside, I can tell you what I saw, but I don’t want to. It was clear what kind of place it was, and Roy turned to me, in less time than it took for someone to come up to us…
And there were certainly pretty girls. And they were girls, and they were young. Some were probably very young, I don’t know. I don’t remember that, I wasn’t there long enough. Roy said to me, ├óΓé¼╦£We shouldn’t be here. I’m leaving.’ Or words to that affect, I think those were his exact words.”
The two soldiers left the whore house and returned to their base camp. The veteran concluded:
“And that was Roy. That was Roy. Honorable. disciplined, morally straight and highly principled.”
Oh cool, Roy abstained from taking advantage of young girls this one time. We wonder what his half a dozen accusers would have to say in response to Bill’s inneresting story.
In addition to Staehle, Trump lackey Steve Bannon spoke at the election eve rally, who claimed that liberals and the press wanted to “shut up President Trump and Judge Moore” as well as their supporters. Ugh.
Roy had one last message for his naysayers when he asked:
“If you don’t believe in my character, don’t vote for me.”
Fingers crossed they don’t.
