At a recent campaign rally, Roy Moore’s wife tried to defend her husband from charges of antisemitism by claiming that they couldn’t be racist because one of their lawyers was Jewish. Obviously there are plenty of flaws within this reasoning and Ellen DeGeneres took to Twitter to mock Moore’s statements.
Happy first night of Hanukkah to Roy Moore’s attorney and everyone else celebrating!

Plenty of other Twitter users decided to join in on the fun mocking Moore’s comments while wishing those celebrating Hanukkah a happy holiday. Many of them thanked her for providing them with some much needed levity in times such as these. After all, the people of Alabama may soon elect an accused child molester to the U.S. Senate. We’ll take laughs where we can find them.
