Roy Moore blames 'malicious' allegations on gays, liberals and socialists

Roy Moore blames 'malicious' allegations on gays, liberals and socialists

Moore engaged in a back-and-forth with ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, who had planted a comedian at an event in a south Alabama church to supportively heckle the Republican candidate. "They want to keep everything the same so they don't lose their position, power and prestige".

Barbieri appeared to be an overzealous "supporter" of Roy Moore. Moore told conservative talk show host Sean Hannity shortly after the first women came forward that he would not debate Jones because of his "very liberal stance on transgenderism and transgenderism in the military and in bathrooms". They are socialists who want to change our way of life.

Moore also blamed "Democrats pushing a liberal agenda".

Moore said he believes his prosecution of drug cases when he was a district attorney angered certain people, and that this is at "the heart of this conspiracy" against him.

During Moore's presentation at the church, a heckler interrupted him, yelling, "The entire time, all the girls are lying?" the man shouted. There is nothing religious or Godly about a grown man taking advantage of young girls.

Kimmel hit back by referencing the allegations against Moore: "OK Roy, but I'm leaving my daughters at home!" "Does that look like the face of a molester?"

Kimmel plans to address the issue on Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Kimmel has been in conservative crosshairs for a while now anyway, ever since he made a public and personal appeal to Congress to not strip Americans of their healthcare earlier this year.

Moore is running for senate out of Alabama amid accusations of sexual assault and that he pursued relationships with teenage girls while in his 30s.

Moore has denied those allegations, calling them "completely false" and "dirty politics".

Just three days ago, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump would not campaign in Alabama on Moore's behalf. The investment, which is largely aimed at attacking Democrat Doug Jones, could swell to $400,000 to help counter Democrats' steady advertising dominance in the race, according to Great America Alliance senior adviser Andy Surabian.
