Top White House adviser Kellyanne Conway gave an interview this Monday morning that all but resulted in a full endorsement of U.S. Senate candidate Racist (proof) Roy Moore. Moore has been accused of multiple instances of sexual misconduct with underage girls, but his racist rant against landmark civil rights acts passed in 1965 is enough on its own to completely disqualify him from holding any public office.
Kellyanne Conway all but gave a wink to folks in Alabama to support Roy Moore over challenger Doug Jones. She did not explicitly endorse Moore, but did also did not explicitly say people shouldn’t vote for him. She completely ducked a question asking whether the White House was urging Alabamians to support Moore.
Instead of answering the question, she started rattling off reasons why people should not vote for Moore’s challenger Doug Jones and implied that the White House will not get the votes it needs on its tax bill if Moore loses to Jones. Conway also refused to answer another question about whether president Trump would campaign for Moore before the election.
“I’m telling you we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through,” Conway answered, “The guy Doug Jones is a doctrinaire liberal. I just want everybody to know Doug Jones. Nobody ever says his name, and they pretend that he’s some kind of conservative Democrat in Alabama, and he’s not.”
Although Conway did not explicitly endorse Moore, she explained that the White House’s position is completely against his challenger Doug Jones and gave reasons as to why Doug Jones would be a bad choice. This may not be a full “we endorse Roy Moore” situation, but it has the same impact because the White House is telling people not to vote for his challenger. The full interview is in the footage below, if you’d like to view it.
