Roy Moore spokeswoman calls accusers ‘criminals’ who are seeking revenge as CNN interview goes off the rails

Published

on

Roy Moore spokeswoman Jane Porter went on CNN Tuesday morning to defend the honor of her candidate — and to inform CNN’s Poppy Harlow that Moore’s opponent wanted to kill her unborn child.

At the start of the interview, after Harlow thanked Porter for coming on the show, Porter returned her thanks by giving her a backhanded congratulatory message on the impending birth of her second child.

“Congratulations on your unborn child,” Porter said. “That’s the reason why I came down to speak, as a volunteer, for Judge Moore. He will stand for the rights of babies like yours in the womb, whereas his opponent will support killing them up until the moment of birth.”

Harlow brushed this comment aside and proceeded to grill Porter about the multiple women who have accused Moore of molesting them when they were teenagers. Porter said all of Moore’s accusers were lying and at one point in the interview compared them to “criminals” who were seeking revenge against Moore.

Later in the interview, Porter again raised the issue of Harlow’s unborn baby boy, but this time Harlow forcefully told Porter to back off.

“If you care about child abuse, you should be talking about the fact that Judge Moore stands for protection… for the rights of babies, like the eight-month old baby that you’re carrying now,” Porter said. “Doug Jones says you can take the life of that baby!”

“Let’s leave my child out of this,” Harlow shot back. “Let’s leave my child out of this.”

Wisconsin political professor shatters the biggest misconception about Trump’s base with a revealing poll

Published

on

One of the most enduring ideas the general public, and especially Democrats, have about President Donald Trump's supporters is that they are bound by an unflappable, cult-like devotion to the president that transcends any sort of logic, reason, or reservations.

But in a lengthy thread on Twitter Tuesday, former University of Wisconsin-Madison professor and Marquette Law School Poll Director Charles Franklin revealed polling data that show this isn't quite true. There are plenty of solid Trump partisans — but voters supporting Trump are, on average, less attached to him than voters opposing Trump are repelled by him:

Trump told NRA’s Wayne LaPierre he’s not ‘waffling’ anymore — background checks are off the table

Published

on

President Donald Trump made a congratulatory phone call to National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre to let the far-right organization know that the White House was reversing itself and would not be supporting universal background checks for firearms sales.

Following shooting massacres in Gilroy, California, El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, Trump had argued the time was now for background checks.

"Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks," Trump argued. "Perhaps marrying this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!"
