Kayla Moore, the wife of embattled Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, took a veiled shot at President Donald Trump Friday despite the fact that Trump has been the only high-profile Republican who has not called on Moore to step down.


"All of the very same people who were attacking President Trump are also attacking us," she said. "I personally think he owes us a thank you. Have you noticed you are not hearing too much about Russia?"

Even though Trump has not called for Moore to end his candidacy in the wake of multiple women who accused him of molesting them when they were teens, the president has kept his distance from Moore ever since the allegations broke. Trump did release a statement last week saying it would be a good idea for Moore to step down if the accusations against are true, but since then has remained totally silent.
