After President Donald Trump popularized the term “fake news” by calling out media outlets that do not, in his opinion, report in an unbiased manner, Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore’s wife used the phrase as a defense against rumors that her husband and she were anti-Semites on Tuesday.
Ahead of a key election in the state of Alabama, Kayla Moore took the stage at a campaign rally in Midland City and in her speech attempted to shut down accusations of anti-Semitism that was plaguing the couple in the recent senatorial race.
“Fake news will tell you that we don’t care for Jews,” Kayla said, as her husband stood grinning behind her. “I tell you all this because I’ve seen it also I just want to set the record straight while they’re here. One of our attorneys is a Jew!”
“We have very close friends that are Jewish and rabbis and we also fellowship with them,” she added.
Her defensive comments came a week after her husband told a local radio that he believed Jewish liberal fundraiser George Soros would go to hell because he was not a Christian.
“He’s still going to the same place that people who don’t recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going,” Roy said last week, Washington Examiner reported. “And that’s not a good place.”
Kayla also defended her husband against accusations of racism.
“Fake news would also have you think that my husband doesn’t support the black community,” she said. “Yet my husband appointed the very first black marshal to the Alabama Supreme Court. We have many friends that are black and we also fellowship with them in church and in our home.”
Apart from allegations of being a racist and an anti-Semite, Roy has also been accused of sexual misconduct. He was initially accused of pursuing sexual and romantic relationship with four wochristian louboutin men when they were between the ages of 14 and 18 and he was in his 30s. Since the first report of sexual assault published against Roy in November, other wochristian louboutin men also came forward to accuse him of similar acts.
In an interview to a local television program, “The Voice of Alabama Politics”, Sunday, Roy denied accusations that he molested anyone. “I did not know them,” Moore said, CNN reported. “I had no encounter with them. I never molested anyone, and for them to say that, I don’t know why they’re saying it, but it’s not true.”
He further insinuated that reports of the accusations could be part of his opponent’s efforts to get ahead in the race. “”They know I stood for moral values, so they’re attacking me in that area, and I understand that,” he said.
“But it’s also part of the scheme of political parties today and political candidates and both parties, quite frankly, to degrade your opponent — to take him down so you appear to go up. That’s just a simple political tactic,” he added.
Ever since these accusations surfaced against him, Roy was vehemently resisting calls from other lawmakers — from both sides of the political aisle — to drop out of the senatorial race, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Roy was officially endorsed by Trump in early December.
