Many Republican lawmakers have been frantically distancing themselves from Roy Moore on Thursday afternoon following the publication of a shocking Washington Post story — which accuses Moore of having relationships with four teenaged women while in his 30s.
Moore does have his defenders in conservative media, although they are few and far between. But one Fox News personality who seldom goes against the family spoke out Thursday and called for the former Alabama Supreme Court justice to quit the race.
On Thursdays edition of The Five, the reliably conservative Jesse Watters came out against Moore.
“[I]f these allegations are true, I feel horrible for these women,” Watters said. “It’s disgusting. Even just the allegation itself. It’s not just one person. It’s multiple people.”
Watters went on to call for the judge to withdraw.
“[T]he whole cloud, the whole stench around this guy, I don’t see how he can represent Alabama in the U.S. Senate,” Watters said. “Politics is a dirty business. Innocent until proven guilty. But this doesn’t seem like that. To me, I’m just not getting that feeling. I think he should step down, do the decent thing.”
