Donald Trump has backed Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore remaining in the election race despite multiple claims of sexual harassment of teenage girls.
Mr Trump believes that “Alabama should take the decision” about their next senator and that Mr Moore should only quit if the allegations are proved.
Weird that it’s The Donald making it but still.
The important concept under discussion is “democracy.” That means that it’s the voters who get to say. There are no – barring actual proved criminal activities – preconditions upon who they may decide among. Because that’s what the system is, the voters getting to decide. Maybe they do care about a bit of ephebophilia, maybe they don’t – as with the Ten Commandments stuff for which he was rightly fired as a judge, not a politician – but it is up to them what they care about.
