Loudmouth goes silent on Moore.

WASHINGTON &#8213; President Donald Trump has yet to make any major comments on Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, nearly a week after multiple women accused the controversial judge of sexual misconduct when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

Trump, who returned to Washington late Tuesday from a 12-day trip to Asia, has largely ignored questions about Moore, even as the allegations continue to grow and many GOP lawmakers have called on Moore to withdraw from the race.

The president twice dodged questions from reporters this week: once on Tuesday night, when he returned to the White House, and again on Wednesday, after a previously unscheduled speech to summarize and boast about his travels.

On Thursday, when asked why Trump has been conspicuously silent about Moore, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said the president has been too busy to comment.

But if the new standard in public life is that allegations that are widely believed against a figure like Moore, or Franken, require disqualification from political life, the President himself could find himself on dangerous ground.

After all, he faced multiple claims of sexual harassment during the campaign which he forcibly denied. And he has yet to speak out regarding the allegations against Moore.

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand suggested the spotlight might soon return to Trump when she told the New York Times that in hindsight, President Bill Clinton should have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky affair in the late 1990s.

"I think in light of this conversation, we should have a very different conversation about President Trump, and a very different conversation about allegations against him," she said.

The governor of Alabama said the election will go on as scheduled.

Roy Moore's wife said he will stay in the race.

If Doug Jones, the Democrat wins, the Republican lose.

If Roy Moore wins, the Republican are in even worse shape. I love this one. grin

Another promised broken. His handlers in the day care told him he better shut up on this one if he expects to be POTUS much longer.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/15/politics/trump-tweeted-yet-roy-moore/index.html

President Donald Trump is not known for being shy when it comes to hot-button political questions. But he's been unusually quiet, or circumspect, when it comes to the scandal enveloping Alabama Republican Roy Moore's Senate campaign.

Trump then promised a more detailed statement when he returned to the US. He arrived back on Tuesday, at around 9 p.m. ET. Since then, he has tweeted regularly -- but not yet addressed the Moore situation.

Wednesday, November 15: After avoiding the issue during televised remarks recounting his Asia trip, Trump's position remained unclear.

Thursday, November 16: White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, asked again during a press briefing, offered no new insight into Trump's thinking.

"The President believes that these allegations are very troubling and should be taken seriously, and he thinks that the people of Alabama should make the decision on who their next senator should be," she said, adding later that "if those (allegations against Moore) do happen to be true, then he should do the right thing and step aside."

Given Trump's delight in sharing his thoughts on almost every issue in American life, his near silence on this one stands out.

So, we wait -- and watch the clock (literally here). The published allegations are a week old. But our count started from when Trump got back to the White House from his Asia trip.

One of the women accusing Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual assault opened up about the alleged experience Friday morning on “Megyn Kelly Today.”

“I think he wanted to take my power so he could feel powerful,” Tina Johnson told Kelly.

Johnson told AL.com earlier this week that the incident with Moore happened in 1991 as she was visiting his law office with her mother. Johnson’s mother had hired Moore to handle custody paperwork for her daughter’s son as Johnson, then 28, neared divorce.

“It was ongoing flirting,” Johnson described the meeting to Kelly, saying that Moore commented on her looks and asked her on a date. She said the meeting was already difficult for her because she had to rely on her mother to pay for the attorney’s services.

Moore’s behavior made the situation more “uncomfortable,” Johnson said, but “bells went off” when he began asking about her other children, two girls. She said he asked whether her daughters shared her “pretty eyes.”

When the meeting ended, Johnson got up to leave, with her mother ahead of her. Moore then allegedly took the opportunity to grope her rear.

“He just grabbed my behind,” she told Kelly. “I mean, forcefully grabbed it. And I just walked out. I was so ashamed. I thought I did something. I felt the dress I was wearing was inappropriate. It was long, it went to my knees.”

Asked whether she was politically active or had any political motivation for sharing her story now, Johnson said no, “none.” She felt the need to speak up after hearing another Alabama resident defending Moore’s alleged behavior.

“Roy Moore has a lot of Christian-based [supporters],” she said. “When you’re telling me it is OK for you to grope a 14-year-old, there is something wrong.”

Johnson is joined by at least eight other women who have lodged misconduct accusations against Moore ranging from harassment to attempted rape. Four came forward in a damaging Washington Post report published last week, saying that Moore pursued them when they were in their teens and he was in his 30s.

One of those women, Leigh Corfman, said she was just 14 when Moore brought her to his home in a wooded area where he kissed and groped her.

A fifth woman, Beverly Young Nelson, shared a troubling story about Moore during a press conference held by attorney Gloria Allred earlier this week. She said that while she was working as a waitress at age 16, Moore offered to give her a ride home but instead drove to a secluded area and sexually assaulted her. He was serving as a district attorney in Etowah County at the time.

AL.com reported that another woman, Kelly Harrison Thorp, was working as a waitress at age 17 when Moore asked her out, allegedly telling her, “I go out with girls your age all the time.”

Two more women shared stories about Moore in a report published by the Post on Wednesday, saying the incidents occurred when the women worked at an Alabama mall as young adults. Gena Richardson says Moore repeatedly asked her out around the time of her 18th birthday and, after she denied him, called her at school during a trigonometry class. She agreed to a date, but said that a “forceful” kiss left her scared. The other woman, Becky Gray, said that Moore repeatedly badgered her for a date when she was 22 years old in a way that made her uncomfortable.

Moore has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, blaming partisan politics and attempting to discredit his accusers.

Several prominent Republican politicians &#8213; including Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) &#8213; have said he should leave the Senate race.

President Donald Trump, however, has not called for Moore to step aside. Despite questioning by reporters on Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders flatly refused to comment on whether the president supports the embattled candidate.

Ivanka Trump, the president’s elder daughter, addressed the scandal in an oblique way on Wednesday, saying “there is a special place in hell for people who prey on children.”

WASHINGTON — The Roy Moore scandal has unleashed a torrent of online donations to Democrat Doug Jones, who was collecting around $250,000 per day in its immediate aftermath, according to two sources familiar with the matter who spoke to NBC News on condition of anonymity.

Democrats may end up in the unlikely situation of dramatically outspending the GOP in the Senate contest in deep red Alabama now that national Republicans have abandoned Moore. The Republican candidate's bank account had been depleted by a tough primary battle even before nine women came forward to accuse of him of sexual impropriety.

Do Republicans Like Trump? Latest Poll Shows Least Popular President Ever Is Starting To Lose His Base

Trump is coming off a trip to Asia, a 12-day excursion he seemed to have felt went well but apparently did little to boost his popularity. The former reality TV star called the trip a "tremendous success" while declaring "America is back" as he delivered remarks upon returning to the states.

"America’s renewed confidence and standing in the world has never been stronger than it is right now," he said. "This is exactly what the world saw: a strong, proud and confident America."

But if his latest approval ratings are any indication—FiveThirtyEight pegged Trump's average disapproval rating at 55.5 percent late in the week—much of the country wasn't exactly proud of the leader representing them overseas.

I can live with a lot of them replaced with fresh faces if Trump is gone too. Trump is the number two political problem in the the world now behind kim jong un. They are the most dangerous pair to the survival of the human race.

Things are really bad for the Republican party in Alabama when the three biggest newspapers in the state say vote for the Democrat.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/19/media/alabama-newspapers-editorial-roy-moore/index.html

The three biggest newspapers in Alabama have a message for their readers: "Stand for Decency, Reject Roy Moore.

The Alabama Media Group stripped the editorial across its Sunday front pages. The unusual step comes 10 days after misconduct allegations first surfaced against Moore, the Republican nominee for the state's Senate seat.

The editorial doubles as an endorsement of Moore's opponent, Democrat Doug Jones. It appears in The Birmingham News, Mobile Press-Register and The Huntsville Times and it is prominently featured on the papers' shared website AL.com.

"This is an important moment in Alabama and America, and we felt such treatment was in line with what is at stake in this race," Michelle Holmes, the VP of content for AL.com, told CNNMoney early Sunday.

The election is 23 days away.

The papers previously said that Moore was "grossly unfit" for office, but they stopped short of endorsing Jones.

Now the joint editorial board says that "there is only one candidate left in this race who has proven worthy of the task of representing Alabama. He is Doug Jones."

The editorial concludes: "The voters must make their voices heard."

Oh Roy Moore is not going to have one friend in Washington if he somehow is elected.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/19/politics/susan-collins-roy-moore-cnntv/index.html

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins said on Sunday that she does not believe Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore's denials of the sexual allegations against him and hopes the state's voters do not send him to Washington.

I don't recall saying it was a sure thing. Elections are never a sure thing. But the chances of Moore getting elected are getting worse every day.
