In the Republican primary for the Alabama special election to replace Senator Jeff Sessions (now the U.S. Attorney General), President Trump endorsed Luther Strange over Roy Moore. But as we now know, Moore eventually emerged victorious and thus is the GOP candidate opposing Democrat Doug Jones in next week's special election.
I often wondered why Trump didn't take the opportunity to engage in a proverbial victory lap when decades old accusations of sexual misconduct against Moore began to surface. After all, Trump's never been shy about patting himself on the back, regardless if it's warranted. But had the Alabama GOP nominated Strange, as Trump preferred, it would've prevented a lot of the headaches we're experiencing now.
As it turns out, there's a reason President Trump was restrained in shouting "I TOLD YOU SO."
Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama. We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more. No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet! — Donald J.

Welp....there you have it. Despite credible allegations of a then 30-something Moore propositioning teen aged girls back in the 1970s, there's an agenda that needs tending to. Apparently that supersedes common decency.
Back in the 1980s, Henry Kissinger once said of the Iran-Iraq conflict that "it's a pity they can't both lose." Given the Alabama senate race pits a former pedophile (allegedly) against a radical pro-abortion candidate, ol' Hank's sentiment is definitely applicable here.
