If Republicans believe Roy Moore’s accusers, why not Trump’s?

23 posts in this topic

Quote

By contrast, notwithstanding Trump’s creepy interest in barging into beauty-pageant dressing rooms to ogle young contestants and his even creepier comments speculating about how he might have dated Ivanka Trump if she weren’t his daughter, Trump, unlike Moore, faces no allegations of improperly pursuing teenagers, including those beneath the age of consent. Trump’s alleged conduct is unacceptable; Moore’s is even more appalling.

...Of course the most credible explanation is both obvious and unspeakable in public: Republicans can afford to throw Moore under the bus, as difficult as it would be to narrow their already-thin Senate majority. They could not risk losing the presidency, even if it meant electing Trump.

If Republicans as a whole are in a difficult spot, imagine the White House pickle. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), with others in tow, has sided with Moore’s accusers. Having deployed the if-then approach with Moore — if he behaved as alleged, then he should withdraw — what does Trump now say? “I’m unconvinced, even if McConnell & Co. believe them”? Or, “Okay, I’m convinced, too,” in which case the question arises: And so what about the women who accused you?

A woman's word and dignity is worth a senator, but not worth a president.

Just like I said before.   If the GOP dumps Moore then the finger will be pointed at Trump.   Then what?

There is no way they can dump one and defend the other and they have no one to blame but themselves for nominating these clowns.

We have a very curious contradiction right here. Not so curious, really, is it?

They do believe it.

They just either whole-heartedly support it or deceitfully lie about it.

They know he did it though, in their black little hearts.

Weren't Clinton's investigated?

That's all that's being asked for here.

Why, because he got away with it, (and continues to do so) or because he's a Democrat, or both?

Why do you continue to defend a pedophile?

It amazes me how people think an adult having sex is worse than a grown man having sexual misconduct with a young teenager.

Because he hasn't been in a position to be elected since the last time the Cowboys won a Super Bowl. Yet we're talking about someone who was just elected (and will be up for re-election) President and someone else who is up for Senate who has serious issues.

Just because Clinton was involved in sexual misconduct and elected when Isiah Thomas played in the NBA for the Pistons doesn't mean we have to tolerate Trump or Moore's ridiculous behavior being considered in current elections. But people keep greenlighting it, because Clinton something something back when Cheers was still on TV.

Not really, and not by Democrats.   

And certainly not believed by them, which makes Clinton a perfect juxtaposition with Moore and this thread topic.

The Moore , Trump comparison is interesting because they are happening now and are members of the same party. Plus the Clinton accuser's stories lack credibility, while Trump bragged about it.

But like so said, one's a mere senator, the other a president.

But it is difficult to take Republican leadership seriously in their opposition to Moore when they never expressed such sentiment about Trump.

Being able to name a 36 year old blogger to the federal bench took precedence.

I believe Bill Clinton should retroactively resign as President 17 years later.  Now into the very uncomfortable for some, present...

Nobody is greenlighting anything, that I can see.  They are merely pointing out the hypocrisy.

Of course.

They say it's not relevant because it's inconvenient.
