Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson sent out a statement this afternoon praising Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore… hours before President Trump‘s rally for Moore opponent Luther Strange. The President’s support of Strange over Moore was one of the many subjects the two debated last night.
Moore has received support from people like Sarah Palin and Sebastian Gorka, with Palin saying at a rally last night, “We’re sending Trump someone who has our back — not Mitch McConnell’s.” The President, however, is publicly supporting Strange, to the dismay of some, even claiming that his pick has “gained mightily” since his endorsement.
Ben Carson’s longtime business manager and adviser, Armstrong Williams, would be thrown in prison by Roy Moore. But that must be OK with Dr. Stabby. Williams has twice settled same-sex sexual harassment lawsuits, most recently in January of this year.
