On Friday, Kayla Moore, the wife of US Senate candidate and accused pedophile Roy Moore, appeared at a press conference with a crowd of conservative women on the steps of Alabama’s capitol building. Mrs. Moore was singing largely the same song as the Moore campaign has been playing since the explosive allegations uncovered by the Washington Post became public: That Ol’Roy has no intention of stepping down, that he denies all the allegations, and that a vote for the Democrat in the race is a vote for the Devil himself.
The song is getting old.
But in a new twist, Kayla Moore let slip — apparently as oblivious as her husband is to the levels of irony involved in preaching morals while Roy stands accused of possibly the biggest sex scandal of a major politician ever — a truly damning and breathtakingly honest statement. Right into a microphone, Kayla Moore leaned over and said that Donald Trump should be grateful to her husband’s campaign and to her family for distracting America from the ongoing investigation into Trump’s illegal dealings with a foreign power to win the 2016 election.
Hold on to your hats:
The people of Alabama understand what’s going on here. My husband, Judge Roy Moore is fighting for the people of Alabama and has been fighting for over 30 years. The people of Alabama know him, they have seen what he has done. So the liberal press, Washington Post, who endorsed Hillary Clinton, who also endorsed our opponent gets involved in this race, along with the Human Rights Campaign, the DNC and the Washington establishment, all of the very same people who were attacking President Trump are also attacking us.”
“I personally think he owes us a thank you. Have you noticed you’re not hearing too much about Russia?“
Prior to launching into her tirade about the dirty liberals who were clearly out to get Ol’ Roy by printing the things that Trump-supporting victims told them Roy did, Kayla noted that “ninety percent of the response” from the people of Alabama that she and her disgusting husband have been “inundated” with has been “positive,” and that all of the negative feedback has come from out of state.
I don’t know whether it’s sadder that she believes there’s been that much positive feedback, or whether I believe her — that people from Alabama still support them.
Possibly the most disturbing part of the video I’m about to put at the bottom of this article is how familiar it looks and sounds to me. I was raised in an evangelical church. The hoots and clapping sound just like “Amen” when they come from a brood of old white women bathed in the blood of the LAWD.
Anyway, I had to watch this, so now you have to watch it too:
