Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, including one who was 14 at the time. There are many corroborating witnesses.
Donald Trump has been just too busy to hear about the woman who claimed that he sexually molested a 14-year-old girl. Seriously? Here is Trump’s pack of lies and flimsy excuses.
Ali Vitali, a White House reporter for NBC News, asked Trump in her tweet:
‘We should ask you about Roy Moore. Is it time to pitch him overboard?’
‘Well again, I’ve been with you folks, so I haven’t gotten to see too much. And believe it or not, even when I’m in Washington or New York, I do not watch much television. I know they like to say that. People that don’t know me, they like to say I watch television – people with false sources.’
Trump’s excuse was that he does not watch TV:
‘But I don’t get to watch much television. Primarily, because of documents. I’m reading documents. A lot. And different things. I actually read much more – I read you people much more than I watch television. But anyway. So I have not seem very much about him, about it. And you know I put out a statement yesterday that he’ll do the right thing.’
Vitali persisted with her questions:
‘But four women have come forward and accused him of inappropriately touching them, basically making (sic) advantages when they were underage, including a 14-year-old. At one point – and you said “If he did it,” but at what point do you decide if he did it? Because it’s right now, it’s their word again his.’
‘Honestly, I’d have to look at it and I’d have to see. Because, again, I’m dealing with the president of China, the president of Russia. I’m dealing with the folks over here. So I haven’t devoted, I haven’t been able to devote very much time to it.’
Then, Trump continued with his meandering response:
‘And, I mean, you people are just as strong as me. You’re following me all over that place. I mean, we are going to lots of meetings, right? And, by the way, anybody that took the bet, pick up your money, okay?’
Maybe, Trump is having a hard time seeing what the big deal is about Moore’s sexual molestations, because the president has been accused of having the same problem.
After all, we have Trump on tape, in his own words, saying he grabbed women’s genitals. The Twitter world went wild:
