Paul Ryan: Roy Moore Should Step Aside If He Cares About The Values He Claims To Care About [VIDEO]

CNN reports:

House Speaker Paul Ryan urged Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside Tuesday morning just a day after another accuser came forward alleging that Moore assaulted her when she was a teenager. “He should step aside,” Ryan said during his news conference. “Number one, these allegations are credible. Number two, if he cares about the values that he claims to care about, then he should step aside.” Ryan’s comments come as more than a dozen Republican lawmakers have urged Moore to step aside.


RELATED: Aside from a single worried tweet posted by Tony Perkins four days ago, the Family Research Council has been glaringly silent about Roy Moore, who was a top-billed speaker at their Values Voter Summit in September.

      Why couldn’t the fucking election be today, when Doug Jones is probably a bit ahead?! Whyyyyyyyyyy!

        He’s adorable.

        And for that matter, why couldn’t the 2016 election have been 1 week sooner before Comey launched the last of the EMAILS!!!111!!!!

        Hillary would have eeked out wins in the close states, and we’d be much better off.

        • Tawreos

          And he looks like he needs a hug. I volunteer.

          • Steverino

            He also has an Adam’s Apple that would make Ann Coulter envious.

        • Steve Smith

          Sometimes I think that if Hilary had won, there would be years and years of attempts to impeach, the GOP blaming her, a democratic president, for all of the problems caused by themselves. I have hopes that we are seeing the beginning of the end for the conservative parties, with their endless greed, their inherent dishonesty and their lies. 40 years after Reagan and Thatcher we have the the major western democracies in decline, a class of kleptocrats who won’t pay anything towards the society which made them rich, unbelievable levels of inequality in a wealthy world, the re-emergence of fascism, a potentially terminal environmental crisis and endless, pointless conflicts, mostly for profit. I don’t think it will be too long before the pitchforks and the guillotine make a welcome reappearance. Trump first, please.

      Same could be said for Ryan, himself. No?

      I kinda challenge that PG-14 rating.

      • Rambie

        Roy doesn’t like ’em after 14

      • Tatonka

        PG stands for “pervy grope” in this context, so it’s appropriate.

        • Crazy Russian

          I just noticed they meant “Pretty Gross to 14 year-olds,” lol.

  • bkmn

    Guess that means the Koch brothers don’t want to see Moore win.

  • another_steve

    And why shouldn’t Donald Trump – a self-confessed sexual predator – step aside, you grotesque Eddie Munster freak.

    • skyweaver

      I think we can all agree that it’s “credible” when the actual abuser states clearly that he assaults women

    • Tawreos

      Trump doesn’t have any values for his actions to conflict with.

    • gothambear

      I think we should take bets on how this will play out – what dirty tricks will the Republican party pull to get Moore out and get Sessions or another Repug on the ballot? Will they delay the election? After the Merrick Garland fiasco anything goes. Unfortunately this probably will not end well even if Moore steps aside…

      • Tatonka

        If Moore wins, wouldn’t he be quickly forced out so that the Governor can appoint Big Luther?

        The Gov’s statement about postponement contained caveats big enough to drive a truck through, btw. She said she has “no plans” to postpone the election, which gives plenty of wiggle room to change her mind.

    • Steverino

      Trump is their useful idiot with a pen.

  • Bob Conti

    What values?

      Kiddie fucking.

    • kaydenpat

      Good question. Look at their President.

  • worstcultever

    Hey Ryan – for the sake of our country, how about deleting your existence.

  • Cuberly Deux

    Can you imagine how much effort it takes for Ryan to have to pretend to sound like he gives a shit about what’s right? Gotta be excruciating.

    To make up for it he’s gonna have to go out and punt a few kittens….or unplug a few elderly on life support or something.

  • Gustav2

    What about those fine Roman Catholic values you are supposed to have?

    • Cuberly Deux

      Send out the search party.

  • BeaverTales

    Roy Moore has no values…He’s a grifter, and many Alabama voters are too dumb and/or scared to admit it to themselves.

  • Lizard

    “…if he cares about the values that he claims to care about, then he should step aside.”

    Wait, there are people who still think Moore cares about anything except power?

    • clay

      “…if he cares about [Republican Power], then he should step aside.”

  • Ninja0980

    Both you and he think women should be forced to carry pregnancies against their will and want to gut any all and programs that help the middle class and the poor.
    What you really mean is that if he is elected, he’ll get in the way of far right agenda and nothing more.

  • gaycuckhubby

  • northern_neighbour

    Obviously the pot doesn’t know that it shares the dark side of The Force with the kettle. White Moral Hypocrisy Writ Large.

  • clay

    I have to admit that I do like the switch in pressure points from “If these allegations are true” to “If he’s not a raging hypocrite”. It means that backing out would not be an admission of guilt, but that staying in would be the admission of guilt. Good rhetoric, you anti-social Wisconsin fuck-head.

  • Ben in Oakland

    Mr. munster, the entire Republican Party should step down then, because they obviously don’t care about the values they claim to care about.

    Fiscal responsibility? We’ll have even more massive deficit spending so that billionaires can be less oppressed.

    Small government? just small enough to fit into your jock strap, your vagina, your marriage, or your pipe.

    Health and security? the only way to accomplish that are more and more and more guns. And less and less healthcare.

    Morality? Moore is less. And Grabby McPussy, Grabby McKitten, fornicating adulterous Newtie. And a long long long long long long long long long list of others.

    Freedom? Freedom of religion is for me. the freedom to follow my religion is for you.

    AmErica first? you’ve been Putin America first for quite a while.

    And so on.

      Kind of like the presidential election shouldn’t have been hard but here we are, suffering through the consequences.

  • boobert

    I think the democrats need to sit back and avoid this freak show. Republicans created this monster and it’s up to them to fix it. If moore is stopped, there will be a lot of pissed voters in AL.The moron will be back soon and take over the headlines.

    • marshlc

      Yep. A little word here and there in strategic places from the guy actually running – Doug Jones, is that his name? – and otherwise just stand back. The worst thing would be for the Republicans to see a way to have a united front against Democrats.

    • He was to run for governor.

  • Tawreos

    Moore’s letter from clergymen supporting him that was released after the sexual charges came to light is bullshit!

    • Cuberly Deux

      Wow, good thing she’s a Christian, so she can lie and deceive with the assurance that the big J has her back.

  • Bambino

    So the governor will postpone until they can find someone with less disgusting criminal past to run against Doug Jones?

    • boobert

      Is it even legal to postpone an election because you don’t like the candidate? Jones can sue the shit out of them.

      • Bambino

        Dragging the lawsuit out over many months still achieved the same result for the repugnant.

  • JWC

      The Bernie bros wouldn’t vote for Jones because he isn’t perfect enough.

      • matrem

        Also because many feel entitled to women.

    • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

      Nice poster, but since it’s Alabama we are dealing with, I would suggest the deletion of points 2 and 3 from the Doug Jones column.

      • Steverino

        I’m thinking all of them could be deleted.

    • Tor

      The blue tint really does not help.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Sadly, the Bernie Boobs, Stein Stoners and the assorted “I wannabe Ché” brigades still think so.

    • David Walker

      Well, the ex-judge child diddler is half right about 9/11. I don’t know about the abortion bit, although both Falwell the elder and Robertson the aged both claimed that so it’s understandable that an ex-judge child diddler would be on their side. But it’s true, just misstated, about our role in 9/11. It happened because gay translators, acknowledged to be the best in translating Arabic, were let go because they were gay. That and the twig didn’t give a shit anyway.

    • The guy on the left was endorsed by the Republican Party. Speaks for itself, doesn’t it?

  • gaycuckhubby
    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Right, remove the temptation

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Yes, because men are apparently so enslaved to their passions that they can’t possibly see women as people instead of as just objects. Oh wait, we’re talking about the Republican Party….never mind.

  • Tawreos

    I said it yesterday, FRC is fine with kiddy diddlers as long as they are not the same sex

  • zhera

    “Number two, if he cares about the values that he claims to care about, then he should step aside.”

    AND SO SHOULD YOU, LYIN’ RYAN!

  • kaydenpat

    I’m pleasantly surprised that Republicans are actually stating in public that they believe the women who have come forward with allegations against Moore. That’s at least one good thing they’ve done amidst all their awfulness.

    • Michael B

      Well they have to say that….so when moore is voted in…they can claim that they dont support him…however the Good people of Alabama voted him in and we must follow the will of the people. (if it means keeping rethuglicans in power)

  • boobert

    They should all just throw their support to Jones. An Alabama democrat would probably vote with them most of the time anyway.

  • ColdCountry

    Seems to me that if he cared about the values he claims to care about, there would be no accusations against him in the first place.

  • Friday’s_cat

    When you’ve lost Eddie Munster …

  • Lazycrockett

    With Sessions hogging the media attention today Ryan would be smart to shut up and let Moore die down.

    • clay

      but then, he wouldn’t be the Eddie Munster we know and loathe.

  • Michael R

    Kayla Moore posted a letter on social media claiming
    dozens of religious leaders believed her husband .

    “The list that has recently circulated was evidently copied and pasted from the August endorsements without checking to see if I still endorsed Moore,” said Pastor Thad Endicott, of Heritage Baptist Church.

    “I was not asked about this story or allegations,” said Tijuanna Adetunji, of the Fresh Anointing House of Worship in Montgomery.

  • Mike C

    Again, Alabama law prevents him from being removed from the ballot. The only reason they are saying this is because they know full well that nothing will be done, that Moore will not “step down” and so they can pretend to not have gotten their hands dirty when they ultimately seat him in the senate.

  • Lars Littlefield

    Gosh.
    Y’all think Moore might win?

    • Bambino

      Not only he will win the churches will remove Jesus from the cross and place his statue there.

      • edrex

        then sign me up to vote.

    The only thing I want to hear from Paul Ryan is two words spoken Nov 6, 2018. “I concede. “

  • From
    what I have seen of Republican commentary on this, it seems they are
    not bothered even if the allegations are true, because “Mary was
    underage when Joseph married her, and she gave birth to Jesus”, and “14
    year old girls come on to older men all the time”. So it’s not a crime
    when Republicans do it.

  • agcons

    It took you long enough, Ryan. I’m having a really hard time believing that no one in the Republican party knew nothing about either Roy Moore or his proclivities before this.

  • Queequeg

    Why would Ryan expect a child molester to have principals?

  • Gianni

    What if he doesn’t really care about the values he supposedly cares about? He wants to win a Senate seat. That obviously overrides any of those long touted and precious Christian principles he’s spent so much time crowing about to everyone. Besides, even in the face of an overwhelming number of claims from his victims, supporters can still, with clear consciences no less, use the Bible to create comparisons to the holy family and excuse his behavior. It’s totally ludicrous and mind-blowing!
