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.”

Trump Org executive agrees with Mary Trump that the president is ‘traumatized and emotionally stunted’
Former Trump Organization executive Barbara Res appeared on MSNBC's "The Beat" with Ari Melber to explain that there is probably a lot of truth in the new book by Mary Trump.
"I'm glad that she's come out with it," said Res. "Nobody that knew him like she did, and like I did, back in the time, has really spoken much about this. Written about it, but by people that didn't work with him or know him but read about it and summarized what was. She has very, very powerful information. And I'm glad that she's willing to share it. I think it will be helpful."
Trump’s fans had a choice: They could reject his toxic nonsense or completely lose it. They chose B
The problem with Kanye or other political hobbyists running for president is that it further erodes the already threadbare integrity of our presidential politics, making it increasingly acceptable for other famous-for-being-famous nincompoops to run, and perhaps win. The last four years have illustrated how profoundly dangerous that can be.
‘We’re moving in the wrong direction’: Houston mayor issues dire warning about Texas COVID-19 explosion
On CNN Tuesday, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner warned that the COVID-19 situation in Texas is worsening.
"What is your response in reaching this new milestone of 10,000 cases in Texas in a single day?" asked anchor Wolf Blitzer.
"It's scary, not one I like to brag about," said Turner. "Today, for the first time in a long time, we reported in the City of Houston 1,060, so we represented about 10 percent of those cases. We are moving in the wrong direction. That's why we have to clamp down and slow the virus."
"Mayor, you have said the number of people in ICU beds has exponentially increased," said Blitzer. "Are you in danger in Houston of running out of space to care for the critically ill coronavirus patients?"
