Charles Barkley stirs the pot in AL: Roy Moore should have been ‘disqualified,’ but not over sex allegations

The always entertaining former NBA superstar Charles Barkley called Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore a “white separatist” and said the Republican should have been disqualified for this long “before this women stuff came up.”

For Barkley, who was commenting before the annual Auburn-Alabama college football game, it was a matter of guilt by association, as he pointed to Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump’s former campaign strategist.

“I mean Moore is running with Steve Bannon as his right-hand man, who is a white separatist,” Barkley told reporters. “I’m not even going to get into the women stuff, but how can you be a white separatist and represent all the constituents in your state?”

It may be a stretch to describe Bannon as Moore’s “right-hand man,” but the Breitbart News chief does support his campaign — President Trump backed another candidate in the GOP primary.

Barkley, an Auburn alum, is usually more level-headed when it comes to politics, but he was persistent about Bannon being a racist, though he offered nothing to back the claim.

“Everybody is going crazy over these sexual allegations, but Roy Moore, to me, when he brought in Steve Bannon, should have been disqualified,” Barkley said. “How can you have a guy who is running with a white separatist, running for a political office?”

“We have a lot of black people in this state who are amazing people,” he added. “But to run a campaign with a guy as your chief advocate who is a white nationalist, a white separatist, that should have disqualified Roy Moore way before this women stuff came up.”
