Hide the Children!

From Politicus USA:

On Tuesday, when asked about the senatorial race in Alabama between Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore, who’s been accused of sexual assault by numerous women, President Trump responded, “We don’t need a liberal democrat in that seat.” He added, “Roy Moore denies it— that’s all I can say.”

Trump’s comments come the day after his senior adviser Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News   to say pretty much the same thing. Conway responded to questions about whether the administration wants the people of Alabama to support the Republican candidate by first highlighting their goal to pass the GOP tax bill, characterizing the media as hypocritical for its coverage of Democratic Sens. Al Franken and Bob Menendez, and finally by attacking Moore’s opponent for being liberal.

“The guy Doug Jones is a doctrinaire liberal,” she said. “I just want everybody to know Doug Jones. Nobody ever says his name, and they pretend that he’s some kind of conservative Democrat in Alabama, and he’s not.”


Moore has been accused of sexual assault and harassment by at least five women, including two who claim the incidents took place when they were minors. Leigh Corfman told the Washington Post she was 14 years old — Moore was 32 — when he approached her outside of a courtroom and asked for her phone number while her mother was busy at a child custody hearing. The Post’s report described two instances in which Moore allegedly sexually abused Corfman.


While some Republican legislators have denounced Moore, the Alabama GOP has decided to support him.

Nobody should be shocked by this. From HuffPost (December 30, 2016):

While running the Miss Teen USA beauty pageant, Donald Trump reportedly walked in on contestants as they changed in their dressing room, multiple contestants told BuzzFeed on Wednesday.

The site quoted Mariah Billado, a 1997 contestant from Vermont, who recalled having to get dressed “really quickly” because Trump had entered the room. Girls were “just scrambling to grab stuff,” she added.

Billado paraphrased the GOP presidential nominee as saying: “Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.” When she first learned that Trump was running for president she thought, “Oh, gross, this guy walked in on us in the pageant.”

BuzzFeed said three other women also remembered Trump entering the changing room while the contestants ― some as young as 15 ― were in and out of their clothes. However, 11 other participants said they could not recall such intrusions.
Appearing on David Letterman’s show in 2010, he boasted that when he took over that pageant, he made “the heels higher and the bathing suits smaller.”

Trump also has bragged before that, as owner of the beauty pageant, he is entitled to walk in on contestants; though his reference in this case was not to Miss Teen USA.

“I’ll go backstage before a show, and everyone’s getting dressed and ready and everything else,” he told Stern. “And you know, no men are anywhere. And I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant. And therefore I’m inspecting it.”

Trump continued from there. “[Y]ou see these incredible looking women. And so I sort of get away with things like that.”

Bottom line, minus all the frilly euphemisms: A large number of Rethuglicans are perfectly fine with grown men wanting to fuck and/or ogle little girls. Full stop.

    I feel that with each day that passes I am being drawn deeper and deeper into sewer that seems to have no outlet. All that was hopeful is falling further and further behind.

  2. Child molesting is no big obstacle when there’s a massive tax cut for the wealthy that needs to be passed. Priorities, people! It’s what Jesus would have done!

    But it’s wrong to imply that Republicans will tolerate absolutely anything. If Moore were being plausibly accused of atheism, his candidacy in Alabama would be dead instantly.

    • the loony tic

      i believe the bible belt would accept atheism too just to get their tax cuts. the rethugs have proven that they have no soul.

      • It would only be the overtly atheistic candidates who would have a problem. We know that Rethugs will do or say anything to win, including hiding their true religious or non-religious convictions. Look at Twitler. Does anyone believe that he has ever had any religious or moral convictions in his life? However, evangelicals are just fine with him and the two Corinthians who follow him around. Their religiosity is either a tool they pull out to get votes or, in some cases, some kind of psychosis that does not allow them to listen to reason or science or facts.

    • We need to stop making everything sound so sanitary, I would love to see some yard signs that say Roy Moore wanted to fuck little girls! Crude and rude, just like he is. Let’s see Kellyanne fight against those statements. Of course, she will be offended to her bones by that kind of language. Too fucking bad. Let her questioners ask her why language like that is more offensive than conduct like that.

      Anyone who votes for Roy Moore is supporting child-fucking. That’s the bottom line. And that’s exactly what we have to consider when we are told we have to reach out to these shitheads.

  3. Time marches on and morals go hell. I saw something on internet a while back of some befuddled Alabamian who said, “I’d believe Moore before I’d believe God. What kind of insane and ludicrous statement is that? People are effing nuts these days and I really believe that Daddy-O Trump is the root cause of some serious lack of judgment and folks willing to tolerate a lack of morals and common decency.
