Katy Tur: ‘Which Does This White House View as Worse, an Accused Pedophile or a Democrat?’
Katy Tur opened today’s MTP: Daily with a question:
“It is a brutal question, but one that requires asking in this political environment under this President: which does this White House view as worse, an accused pedophile or a Democrat?”
She went on to say “we seemingly got our answer” after President Trump weighed in on Roy Moore today by saying 1) “we don’t need a liberal person in there,” and 2) that Moore “totally denies it.”
Tur called out the President for suggesting people should “doubt Moore’s accusers because his opponent is a Democrat.”
She noted how people in the administration have been walking a delicate line on Moore, particularly when Kellyanne Conway talked about how they “need the votes” on tax reform in the Senate yesterday.
Conway tweeted this today after the President spoke:
I addressed Doug Jones.
I did not address Roy Moore.
Let Alabama choose its representatives.
