Numerous news outlets reported that President Donald Trump wouldn’t mention Judge Roy Moore or the Alabama Senate race during his rally in Pensacola, Florida on Friday evening, just miles from the Alabama border.
The president’s prepared remarks didn’t mention Roy Moore or his far-left opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, so it was assumed that Trump wouldn’t touch the heated race. Well, as we’ve learned sometimes Trump goes off script and he did so again Friday night — shall we say — “bigly.”
Instead, President Trump not only cemented his full-throated endorsement behind Judge Moore, a Christian conservative constitutionalist, but also took the opportunity to bash notorious Democrat ambulance chaser Gloria Allred and her forged yearbook that was used by the Democrat Media Complex and the GOP establishment to slime and smear Moore, who has a sterling reputation in 40 years of public service in Alabama.
After blasting Democrats for supporting open borders, government-run health care “that doesn’t work,” and for being “soft on crime” and desiring to “suffocate our economy with socialist-style regulation,” Trump fired at the discredited liberal attorney Gloria Allred.
“Gloria Allred — anytime you see her, you know something is going wrong,” President Trump mockingly said.
The president then — as he has previously done on Twitter the past two weeks — labeled Doug Jones as a Schumer-Pelosi “total puppet,” while instructing nearby Alabama voters to “Get out and vote for Roy Moore.”
“We cannot afford — this country, the future of this country, cannot afford to lose a seat in the very, very close United States Senate.
We can’t afford it, folks. We can’t afford to have a liberal Democrat, who is completely controlled by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
We can’t do it.
His name is [Doug] Jones, and he is their total puppet, and everybody knows it. He will never, ever vote for us.
We need somebody in that Senate seat who will vote for our Make America Great Again agenda which involves tough on crime, strong on borders, strong on immigration.
We want great people coming into our country. Building the wall, strengthening our military. Continuing our great fight for our veterans — love our veterans. We love our veterans.
We want conservative judges, like Judge Gorsuch on the Supreme Court, doing a great job, too. We want people that are going to protect your gun rights, great trade deals instead of the horrible deals.
And we want jobs, jobs, jobs. So get out and vote for Roy Moore. Do it.”
So much for Trump not mentioning his support of Roy Moore, as the media had hoped. And the slam on Gloria Allred was thrown as an extra bonus.
