Basketball legend Charles Barkley is campaigning for Doug Jones, Roy Moore’s Democratic challenger for Alabama’s open Senate seat — and he thinks Alabamans have been duped into supporting the twice-fired former chief justice.

In an interview with AL.com, Barkley said Alabama voters have been “brainwashed” into supporting the controversial GOP candidate.

“All you have to do is talk about God and say you don’t like homosexuals … and abortion,” Barkley, who claims to identify as neither a Democrat or Republican, said.

Barkley said it’s “unbelievable” that Moore has gotten so far amid allegations from several women that Moore had or pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and he in his 30’s.

“You couldn’t make it up. If somebody sent you a script, with all he’s done and said, you wouldn’t believe he could still be in the race,” the NBA hall-of-famer and Auburn alum said. “To me it’s silliness that this guy’s trying to win.”

“I don’t want this guy representing my state,” Barkley, an Alabama native, concluded.

The crowd erupted with "No!"

"The only ones who mind are those characters... there's a lot of people up there - the press, right? Those are the only ones. The rest of them don't."

Published

on

President Donald Trump's campaign manager Bill Stepien sent a long, rambling letter to the Presidential Debate Commission attacking them for being all-in for Vice President Joe Biden and demanding that they change the debate topics.

Moderator Kristen Welker said that the topics they intend to discuss will be fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, issues facing American families, race in America, climate change, national security and leadership in general. Stepien complained that "national security" or "leadership" doesn't have enough to do with foreign policy as he would prefer.

Speaking at a rally in Prescott, Arizona, this Monday, President Trump gave an excuse as to why he's not matching Joe Biden when it comes to fundraising, saying that he'd be "the greatest fundraiser in history" -- all he'd have to do it call up every Wall Street firm and major company in the U.S.

"I would take in more money, but you know what? I don't want to do that, because if I do that I'm totally compromised -- because when they call me, you know, you're a loyal person and what happens, is, hey -- you'll do things..." Trump said.
