Jerry Falwell Jr. Backs Roy Moore Because Trump Was Also Accused Of Sexual Abuse
Jerry Falwell Jr, the president of the Christian-based Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, expressed his support for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore who has been accused by four women of sexually pursuing them in their teens.
One of the alleged victims told The Washington Post that she was 14 years old when Moore put his hands on her bra and panties. Thirty sources have backed up the newspaper’s report, which Moore has denied.
Falwell told the Religion News Service that he believes Moore because President Donald Trump was accused of unwanted sexual contact (by 16 women in 2016).
Falwell also claimed that Moore is more credible than the four women whom Falwell has never met:
It comes down to a question who is more credible in the eyes of the voters — the candidate or the accuser. The same thing happened to President Trump a few weeks before his election last year except it was several women making allegations.
He denied that any of them were true and the American people believed him and elected him the 45th president of the United States. And I believe the judge is telling the truth.
