Roy Moore Campaign Decides It’s a Good Idea to Have a 12-Year-Old Girl Interview Him

Common sense dictates that a press event with GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore and an underage girl might be a bad idea, but a pro-Trump super PAC bucked that notion and had a 12-year-old girl interview the alleged child predator just days before Alabama’s special election.

The America First Project sent pre-teen conservative Millie March to talk to Moore as a way of showing “that there is a wide range of people who support Judge Roy Moore” — even those in the age demographic he is accused of molesting.

Millie rose to prominence in right-wing media after she attended CPAC this year and was featured in several viral videos espousing support for President Donald Trump and hatred toward Hillary Clinton. She later appeared on Fox & Friends and said she was interested in running for public office one day.

It appears, however, that the 12-year-old is already proving herself to be a hypocrite in her short punditry career. Despite her support for accused sexual predator Moore, in one of Millie’s previous videos, she can be heard attacking Clinton for “defending a man who molested women” — referencing the sexual misconduct allegations that have been leveled against her husband Bill Clinton.

The young conservative visited the Alabama GOP headquarters to sit down with the controversial candidate, and the 12-year-old took the opportunity to rail against undocumented immigrants and sanctuary cities.

“Are you gonna’ support President Trump and help him build a wall?” demanded Millie.

Moore, a hardline immigration hawk, appeared to let out a Freudian slip, saying, “I think the military can be used down with the border patrol and stop immigration.” He went on to clarify that “illegal immigration” is the problem, not immigration in general.

The 12-year-old responded with resounding approval, saying: “yes because everything’s happening a lot and that poor lady and the guy who killed her wasn’t even convicted.”

“Awesome!” added the 12-year-old — after receiving a smile and nod from Moore.

Moore has spent the past several weeks dodging interviews with reputable news outlets and reporters in favor of softball conversations with sympathetic interviewers like 12-year-old Millie. Though, the most bizarre aspect of the meeting is the young girl’s age, considering the GOP candidate was accused of molesting Leigh Corfman when she was a 14-year-old and he was in his 30s.

Other women have leveled similar accusations against Moore, claiming the former Alabama Supreme Court justice made sexual advances toward them when they were teenagers.
