Rep. Scott Taylor (R-VA) on Wednesday blasted Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore over charges he preyed on underage and teenage girls, telling CNN’s John Berman if one of his alleged victims had been his daughter, “I’d break his face.”
“Now the president goes as far as to say he may campaign for him in Alabama,” Berman told Taylor, a former Navy SEAL, of Trump’s tacit support of Moore. “What do you make of that? Is it okay for the president to pick this Republican over a Democrat?”
“This election is going to be decided by folks in Alabama,” Taylor began. “All I know is what I’ve seen, I saw the man give his interview. Me, personally, I don’t think it was sufficient enough. The 14-year-old girl that was there, I can tell you right now if it was my daughter, I’d break his face, I’d break his fingers and I’d probably do a lot worst.”
Taylor noted the president is calculating the political downside of disavowing Moore, noting “the alternative, of course, would jeopardize his agenda.”
“Aren’t some things above politics?” Berman asked.
“I believe so, sure,” Taylor said.
