What happens when a narcissistic sociopath with an established history of sexual assault confronts the notion that a candidate made in his mold has been credibly accused of sexually preying on teenagers as an adult man in his 30s? The narcissistic sociopath, still miffed at being revealed as a total creeper, endorses the sexual predator after “days of behind-the-scenes talks in which he vented about [Roy] Moore’s accusers.” Politico’s Alex Isenstadt writes:
During animated conversations with senior Republicans and White House aides, the president said he doubted the stories presented by Moore’s accusers and questioned why they were emerging now, just weeks before the election, according to two White House advisers and two other people familiar with the talks.
The White House advisers said the president drew parallels between Moore’s predicament and the one he faced just over a year ago when, during the final weeks of the 2016 campaign, Trump confronted a long line of women who accused him of harassment. He adamantly denied the claims.
Somewhere between Donald Trump’s aides faking a bad connection from Asia to get him off the phone and his quiet morning moments on the pot spewing racism into the twittersphere, Trump just couldn’t separate his own injury from Moore’s. The notion that his own advances were repulsive, that women didn’t actually like being grabbed by the p*ssy by a gross old man, was just too much for his fragile sense of self.
“Let me just tell you, Roy Moore denies it. That’s all I can say. He denies it. And, by the way, he totally denies it,” Trump told reporters.
Oh, well, if he “totally” denies it, case closed.
Anyway, Trump’s disconcertion over being personally rebuffed is why the icy-veined queen of darkness was ultimately turned loose Monday to make the argument that electing a pedophile was the linchpin to passing tax reform. Never mind that Republicans already have that vote in sitting Alabama Sen. Luther Strange and it hasn’t made one lick of difference in their string of legislative implosions.
Trump gave personal approval for White House counselor Kellyanne Conway to go after Moore’s Democratic opponent, former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones, during a Monday interview on “Fox & Friends,” which the president regularly watches, said one person with direct knowledge of the decision. Conway laced into Jones, saying that Alabama voters shouldn’t be “fooled” by him, and hinted that the White House wanted Moore’s vote on tax reform.
Not to worry though, Trump still thinks women are “very special.”
“I think it’s a very special time, a lot of things are coming out and I think that’s good for our society,” Trump added at the White House Tuesday. “I think it’s very, very good for women.”
I just don’t believe them. I stand with the pedophile.
