Steve Schmidt Unloads on Trump Effectively Backing Moore: ‘Profound Moral Rot’ in the GOP

Steve Schmidt was appalled by President Trump effectively backing Roy Moore and called today a “tragic day for the Republican party.”

He emphasized the allegation about Moore and a 14-year-old girl in his conversation with Chris Hayes, saying that “this exposes a profound moral rot in the country, in the Republican party.”

If Moore is elected, Schmidt warned, he will be an albatross around the neck of Republicans across the country.

“It seems that prisoners in a penitentiary,” he added, “have a higher code of moral conduct than does the West Wing of the White House and the President of the United States.”
