It was a rather cagey move via Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The longtime anti-Trumper was barely able to conceal his smirk as he informed the media that should Roy Moore win next month’s Alabama special election to fill the vacant Senate seat created when Jeff Sessions became the U.S. Attorney General, it would be up to President Trump to make the final decision regarding whether or not Moore would be allowed to actually serve in the Senate.
McConnell indicated he has already discussed the subject of Roy Moore with the President and further discussion will take place this week. When a reporter asked the Senate Majority Leader if he believed the stories woman told about sexual harassment against them by Donald Trump, McConnell again appeared to want to smile as he declined to give a verbal response.
Democrats in Congress are said to already be preparing a full-on “If Roy Moore isn’t fit to be a senator then Donald Trump isn’t fit to be President” campaign. More troubling is that some among the Republican leadership are quietly but enthusiastically supporting the effort which is already being prepared by Establishment Media contacts as well. You can be sure Mitch McConnell is among those helping out the anti-Trump cause. Keep your eyes and ears open for the media’s soon-to-be repeated attempts to compare and contrast Roy Moore to Donald Trump in the coming days.
Things are once again about to get very ugly in D.C.
