Morning Joe crossed the bridge from Trump opposition to blanket smear by calling the GOP “the party of pedophiles” due to Roy Moore allegations.
It’s one thing to determine women’s accusations against Moore are credible — the blockbuster WaPo report that started it all claimed 30 sources — but it’s another to say that a politician is proven guilty, and therefore, all Republican supporters sanction such behavior. Furthermore, it’s another category of insult to label the GOP the “party of pedophiles.”
Recently, President Trump said that Roy Moore denies that it happened, and emphasized that the accusations are coming out after forty years.
“I can tell you one thing for sure: We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat,” Trump also said.
Panelist Willie Geist retorted to President Trump for coming out in support of Moore.
“If your moral code doesn’t dictate that you come out strongly against someone who’s been accused of these things, maybe a political, strategic argument would prevail on the president, which is that you win this seat, this Senate seat for Roy Moore, it’s a Pyrrhic victory because you will be saddled, as you all have just said, as the party of a pedophiles for the rest of Roy Moore’s term,” Geist said.
John Heilemann then gave the coup de grâce on the conversation’s credibility.
“Then in that case you get the worst of all worlds where you lose the seat, and in the process of losing it you’ve become the party of pedophiles,” he added, unopposed by the other panelists.
If the Democratic Party or the liberal media can just spring accusations anytime it wants to win a Senate seat, then voters can count on this tactic being used over and over again, just like with the presidential election of 2016.
Even if Moore is guilty, it’s up to the accusers to prove the case beyond a shadow of a doubt. If the Alabama voters are satisfied with their choice, then it’s on them alone, not the entire Republican Party.
