Trump won’t pull his Roy Moore endorsement until he hears Sean Hannity’s final judgement: report

Published

on

Roy Moore’s Senate candidacy may end up resting in the hands of Fox News host Sean Hannity.

White House sources tell CNN that President Donald Trump is waiting to see how conservative opinion on Moore develops in the coming days before he decides whether to pull his support for Moore’s candidacy.

“Behind the scenes, the President and his advisers are closely watching the developments in Alabama’s special election, two sources close to the White House and a White House official said,” CNN reports. “That includes, in particular, the reaction of influential conservative supporters such as Fox News host Sean Hannity.”

Hannity on Tuesday night gave Moore 24 hours to clear up charges that he had molested multiple teenage girls when he was in his 30s. Hannity said that if Moore didn’t satisfactorily explain himself, then the Fox host would withdraw his support for his candidacy.

“You must remove any doubt,” Hannity said Tuesday. “If you can’t do this, then Judge Moore needs to get out of this race.”

Five women have now come forward to claim that Moore made sexual advances toward them when they were teenagers, and two of them claimed that Moore tried to force them to touch his genitals.

Donald Trump on the US-Mexico Border

Here’s how a new study implies the Supreme Court has killed 16,000 people since 2012

A new paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research looked into the effects of the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion to people below 138 percent of the poverty line, which has seen nearly 15 million people enrolled in participating states. The results were encouraging: the mortality rate for near-elderly adults has dropped over 9 percent in the four years for which data is available.

But while this is cause for celebration, The Atlantic staff writer Annie Lowrey offered a darker take on the implications of these numbers:
