Kayla Moore is sticking by her man.

During a Friday interview on One America News Network with Trey Yingst, the wife of embattled Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore declined to specifically address the allegations against her husband, yet insisted he “always tells the truth.”

When asked about the specific allegations of sexual misconduct or inappropriate behavior towards multiple women in their teens who have come forward with decades-old claims, Moore said, “They’re allegations and I don’t want to talk about allegations.”

Moore offered a similar statement later when Yingst circled back to the allegations.

As to President Trump’s statement that he would respect the decision of Alabama voters, Moore said, “I appreciate him respecting the people of Alabama” and insisted that her husband would push the president’s agenda if elected.

She also had strong words for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who has called for her husband to step down.

“That he [McConnell] needs to step down,” said Moore. “Because he is not a leader and he’s not doing his job. And the people are tired of Washington not doing their job and not representing the people of Alabama and playing a game.”

Moore emphasized her husband’s service and character as well as his honesty.

“That he’s honest and that he’s godly and that he loves his country,” said Moore. “He fought for his country in Vietnam. He’s a West Pointer. As I said in my speech earlier today, he’s an officer and a gentleman, and you can always count on him to tell the truth.”

When asked if her husband has been “completely honest” when responding to the allegations against him, Moore said, “As I said, he always tells the truth.”
