‘There’s no moral high ground’: Trump adviser defends Roy Moore by comparing child molestation to abortion
Donald Trump economic advisor Stephen Moore on Monday claimed “there’s no moral high ground” between Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore and his democratic challenger Doug Jones, despite the former being an alleged child molester.
“This election is almost a jury of his peers, right?” Moore argued on CNN. “To indicate whether the people of Alabama want this man to represent them. By the way, the Democrat is no saint, either. The Democratic candidate is for partial birth abortion in a state that’s highly Christian and Catholic. So there’s no moral high ground here.”
“Except one is an alleged child molester,” guest host John Berman explained.
“Right, and the other one is for partial birth abortion,” Moore replied.
