Hate group founder and leading US Senate candidate Roy Moore says that America is definitely evil and that he’s probably a lot like Vladimir Putin:
When The Guardian’s Paul Lewis, who was probing the rising popularity of Russian President Vladimir Putin among U.S. conservatives, told Moore that former President Reagan called Russia “the focus of evil in the modern world,” Moore said it wasn’t the only one.
“You could say that very well about America, couldn’t you?” Moore responded in the interview published Wednesday. “We promote a lot of bad things,” added the former chief justice of Alabama’s Supreme Court, specifically citing same-sex marriage.
“That’s the very argument that Vladimir Putin makes,” Lewis pointed out. “Well, then maybe Putin is right,” Moore said. “Maybe he’s more akin to me than I know.” Moore also said “it was the providential hand of God” that placed Trump in the White House, and said that “God knows the heart of man” when asked to comment on Trump’s adherence to the Ten Commandments.
