Roy Moore now has Donald Trump’s full endorsement, as the president has walked himself back from initial statements about how a child molester shouldn’t run for Senate. Of course he should! Because it keeps Doug Jones, a Democrat, out of office! This is one of the main talking points for Moore’s campaign spokesperson, Jane Porter, but it’s not the only one.
Porter appeared on CNN’s New Day across from reporter Poppy Harlow on Tuesday morning to discuss Trump’s tweets about his Moore support. At about minute two in the video above, Porter criticizes his opponent, Jones, but Harlow insists they discuss the numerous women who have accused Moore of approaching them as teens, specifically Leigh Corfman, who says she was molested by Moore as a 14-year-old.
Porter wonders how anyone could be taken in by Corfman’s “Academy Award performance.” When asked directly if she believed any of Corfman’s story, Porter replied, “I don’t believe her at all!” She also wants us to consider all the women who have not accused Roy Moore of sexually assaulting them as children.
“We need to make it clear that there’s a group of non-accusers, that have not accused the judge of any sexual misconduct or anything illegal,” Porter says, her meaning unclear. I guess if you just asked most women in Alabama if Roy Moore touched them as children, they’d say no, and sadly that does seem like it might be enough for most Alabama voters.
But just to focus once more on Porter’s batshit insanity, here she is congratulating Harlow on her pregnancy, which she is certain Doug Jones wishes he could terminate:
Reasonable people saying reasonable things.
