‘Fox & Friends’: Roy Moore’s loss was a rejection of Harvey Weinstein — not President Trump

“Fox & Friends” had some comforting words for their most loyal viewer in the wake of Democrat Doug Jones’ upset defeat of Republican Roy Moore in Tuesday night’s Alabama special election.

In reacting to Moore’s shocking defeat in a deep-red state, the Fox hosts said that the election was in no way a referendum on President Donald Trump — rather, it was a referendum on voters who were sick of men in power engaging in sexual misconduct.

“Jones caught a break when all these allegations came out against Judge Moore,” said host Ainsley Earhardt. “The environment was very bad. The story, I felt like, was just horrific. It’s hard for women especially to go to the polls and vote for him, even though those allegations are just allegations.”

Despite the fact that there are also multiple allegations of sexual misconduct that have been leveled against President Trump, Earhardt suggested Alabama voters were more motivated to vote against Moore because of all the Hollywood sexual harassment scandals that have blown up over the past few months.

“This was not a referendum on Trump,” she said. “I feel like this was a referendum on Harvey Weinstein.”

Alarming headlines have emerged in recent days as many states prepare to facilitate widespread mail balloting due to the coronavirus pandemic. President Trump openly admitted he was withholding federal aid from the postal service to prevent mail-in voting, and USPS has notified 46 states and D.C. that it will struggle to deliver some mail ballots on time," The Daily Beast reported Friday.

Maddow reveals how one state stood up to Trump’s USPS cuts — and won

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow's opening segment on Friday focused on a positive story of political pressure stopping one of the Trump administration's attacks on the U.S. Postal Service.

Maddow reported how NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou had doggedly reported on the removal of postal boxes in Missoula, where she is based. Missoula has been a long-time Democratic Party stronghold.

Montana has a competitive U.S. Senate election in 2020, with Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock challenging first-term Republican Sen. Steve Daines.

As Georgiou chased the story, she learned there were also plans to remove boxes in the battleground of Billings. And more planned for the blue town of Bozeman. And other towns.
