RepublicanAlabama Senate candidate Roy Moore once said the last time America was great was during a period when slavery was still rampant.
"I think it was great at the time when families were united", Moore said. There are a lot of considerations in evaluating the claims, and they appeared not only weak, but the information to Judge Moore's behalf, developments refuting the claims and even discrepancies with any proof, were not reported. The post garnered thousands of retweets within hours.
At the same rally, Moore referred to Native Americans and Asian-Americans as "reds and yellows".
President Trump and the Republican National Committee have gone all-in on support for Moore despite the allegations against him. Richard Shelby said there was no way he would vote for Roy Moore after allegations that Moore sexually assaulted a 14-year-old Gadsden girl when he was 32 and an assistant district attorney. He has vowed to remain in the race ahead of Tuesday's special election against DemocratDoug Jones, and polls show Moore has a slim lead. But the same poll also found that 34 percent of about 1,200 Alabama voters did not believe the allegations of sexual abuse by Moore while 24 percent were undecided.
Roy Moore and other Republican Party "superstars" continue to display racism and ineptitude, but their extremely loyal base doesn't seem to care.
It's no secret that many (if not all) people assume that when Trump and his cronies say "Make America Great Again", that this is part of what they mean.
