'We don't need a liberal:' Trump discounts Roy Moore accusations

'Then he moves his hand to my butt': Second Al Franken accuser speaks out as HALF of Americans say he should resign

Asked if he would speak about Moore, President Trump said, "I can tell you one thing for sure, we don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat, [Doug] Jones".

When pressed later, President Trump added, "Roy Moore denies it, that's all I can say". "He says it didn't happen and you have to listen to him, also".

At first Trump offered a standard attack on Jones as "terrible on borders, awful on the military". "We don't need somebody who's soft on crime like Jones".

"I think it's appropriate for the Ethics Committee to do an investigation, Senator Franken has agreed to that as well", she said. Moore has denied any wrongdoing. That's some law-and-order guy all right.

Those who backed Moore in the runoff argued that a vote for Moore would be a vote for Trump's agenda, and Moore's campaign made the same argument during a Tuesday press conference. An appearance by the president did not work out too well for his original Alabama Senate candidate, Luther Strange.

George Clooney To Play Col. Cathcart In New CATCH-22
Clooney will direct and star in the six-episode series, based on U.S. author Joseph Heller's darkly comedic 1961 novel "Catch-22". Clooney exited the show in 1999, and Catch-22 is his first major television project since.

President Trump, who has faced more than a dozen accusations of sexual misconduct himself, dismissed questions from reporters about him backing a man accused of sexual assault over a man who is a Democrat. If there are any subjects on earth that Donald Trump should walk over hot coals to avoid, it is these.

A reporter shouted a follow-up in response: "Is an accused child molester better than a Democrat?"

The president's remarks came as Moore has faced mounting pressure from Republicans, as well as Trump's daughter, Ivanka, over accusations that he pursued romantic relations with teenage girls and sexually molested two of them.

Young said Moore "is going to help Donald Trump" pass tax reform and "build the wall" while "Doug Jones is not for stopping Obamacare". Trump pointed to Moore's assertions that he did nothing wrong. "I do have to say, 40 years is a long time".

Trump did not answer questions about whether he believes Moore's denials. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and other national Republicans have called on Moore to step aside, but the former state Supreme Court chief justice has refused. Shelby said he will "absolutely not" vote for Moore.
