Donald Trump is literally going to wait to decide what to do about sexual deviant Roy Moore until Sean Hannity tells him what to do.
The Alabama Republican Senate candidate has been accused of sexual assault and abuse by five women. One of the women was 14-years-old at the time.
Many Republicans and conservative “Christians” have voiced their support for Moore. Some have even gone so far as to use the Bible to excuse his sick pursuit of a child.
While Trump was busy embarrassing himself in Asia, the White House responded to the allegations by saying that Trump believes Moore should drop out of the race.
Apparently, that was a lie.
According to CNN, Trump wants to wait until Sean Hannity gives him the thumbs up before withdrawing his support of Moore.
Behind the scenes, the President and his advisers are closely watching the developments in Alabama’s special election, two sources close to the White House and a White House official said. That includes, in particular, the reaction of influential conservative supporters such as Fox News host Sean Hannity.
The White House is also mulling scenarios to prevent Moore from being elected, according to the sources.
Trump, one source said, believes the allegations of child sexual abuse and sexual assault against Moore are bad for the Republican brand, but has decided to wait and see how the situation shakes out before publicly commenting on the situation.
It should be pointed out that Trump has always publicly commented on just about anything and everything before seeing how the situation “shakes out.”
So, Donald Trump is letting Sean Hannity make his decision for him. Can you imagine if President Obama had said that he was going to wait on deciding until Rachel Maddow made one first? Republicans would have exploded.
As president, Trump is not supposed to let an unqualified commentator make decisions for him. But that’s exactly what appears to be happening.
Hannity recently gave Moore 24 hours to satisfactorily explain himself and “remove any doubt” that he is telling the truth. But the victims’ statements speak for themselves. These were detailed harrowing descriptions of what Moore did, and the evidence has only been piling up.
Trump should not need Hannity to make this decision. It’s an easy one to make. Roy Moore is accused of sexual assault by multiple women. There are also witnesses who have confirmed that Moore liked preying on teen girls. But I guess when it comes down to it, sexual predators support each other.
