Tuesday afternoon, as he headed out for Thanksgiving at his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, President Trump was asked about whether or not Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore –who has been accused of sexual assault and child molestation — was the right choice for the state of Alabama. Trump replied:
“He denies it. He totally denies it. Roy Moore denies it — that’s all I can say.”
While he was at it, the president also criticized Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, saying of his record:
“It’s terrible on crime, it’s terrible on the border, it’s terrible on the military.”
In other words, Trump gave his tacit support to a sexual predator, which isn’t all that hard to believe when you consider that Trump is accused of being one, too.
Tuesday evening, former FBI Director James Comey tweeted out this:

That may be the perfect quote for the entire matter of both Donald Trump and Roy Moore, two perverts who are fond of lecturing others on morality. And Comey got plenty of support from social media:
Have you considered giving lessons in subtweeting?

As always, the master @Comey throwing the subtle yet pointed shade at the most fraudulent Presidency in history.

Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote a letter titled “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” In this letter, he said, “It is wrong to use corrupt means to attain moral ends….it is just as wrong…to use moral means to preserve immoral ends.”

Some really think they are above the law – letter, spirit and long arm. Until that long arm catches up to them.

“The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.”

Thank you, James Comey, for saying exactly what millions of us are thinking as we watch Donald Trump try to destroy this country in the service of a Russian dictator.
