Trump Calls Doug Jones a 'Schumer/Pelosi Puppet'

  • What about 'whataboutism?' The Roy Moore attacks are backfiring on Dems | Mulshine

In a pre-dawn tweets Sunday, Trump repeated his argument implying Moore's election in Alabama's special election December 12 would be better than that of Democrat Doug Jones.

As you can see in the tweet above, POTUS is taking aim at Moore's Democratic opponent Doug Jones.

Trump tweets "the last thing we need" in Alabama and the Senate is a "puppet" of the Democratic congressional leadership. "I endorsed Luther Strange in the Alabama Primary", Trump wrote.

Trump has no campaign events for Moore schedule at this time, said White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters.

Trump's attack Sunday echoed comments he made last week when he called Jones "soft on crime".

While many members of the GOP establishment have disavowed Moore, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, President Donald Trump has not done so, telling reporters Tuesday, "I mean, Roy Moore denies it".

"Well, that's a political decision by the president and he's definitely trying to throw a life line to Roy Moore", Graham said during CNN's State of the Union.

Despite the multiple allegations against Moore - he reportedly was banned from an Alabama mall for repeatedly bothering teen girls - Trump has defended him.

"I think it's a very special time because a lot of things are coming out, and I think that's good for our society and I think it's very, very good for women", he said. The New York Times reports that Trump was annoyed with his daughter, Ivanka, for saying there's a "special place in hell for people who prey on children".

"The moral of the story is: Don't nominate somebody like Roy Moore who could actually lose a seat that any other Republican could win", Graham said.

One Republican senator and sometime Trump critic, Lindsey Graham of SC, said Sunday that having Moore on the ballot was a lose-lose proposition for the party. "Forty years is a long time", Trump said, pointing to the amount of time that has passed since the alleged behavior.

"From a Republican point of view, I don't know what winning looks like with Roy Moore", he added.

The campaign quoted two former restaurant employees and a former customer who said they did not remember Nelson working there or Moore eating there.

"The president can speak for himself, as far as I'm concerned, the president can use his influence and do what he can to get Moore to step aside", Mr Thune said.
