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.

Former Vice President Joe Biden talked about the importance of a president's words and accountability during times of crisis during a Friday appearance on MSNBC.

Biden was interviewed by Craig Melvin, who noted the protests tearing apart cities and asked where he would start if elected president.

"I start by talking about what we must be, making no excuses, talking about our obligation to be decent," Biden answered. "Our obligation to take responsibility, our obligation to stand up when we see injustice."

"Look, the words of a president matter -- no matter how good or bad that president is," he explained. "A president can, by their words alone no matter who they are, make it rise or fall, take us to war, bring us to peace. The words of a president matter."

Published

on

On Friday, The New York Times reported on a gathering of Republicans in Conway, South Carolina that appeared to be an "active rejection" of social distancing measures and other public health guidelines.

"The outdoor gathering here on Thursday was a send-off event for Cleo Steele, a longtime Republican Party operative in Horry County, who is retiring to Ohio," wrote Astead Herndon.
