Admitted sexual predator Donald Trump’s embrace of accused pedophile Roy Moore in Tuesday’s Alabama Senate race has entered its final stage, with a rambling, self-indulgent robocall that seems as much about fluffing the president’s ego as it does about getting votes for Moore.
Here’s the text of the call, which sounds like Trump shouted it off the top of his head from the other side of the room:
Hi, this is President Donald Trump and I need Alabama to go vote for Roy Moore. It is so important. We’re already making America great again. I’m going to make America safer, and stronger, and better than ever before, but we need that seat and we need Roy voting for us. I’m stopping illegal immigration and crime, rebuilding a stronger military and protecting the second amendment and our pro-life values. But if Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold. We already know Democrat Doug Jones is a puppet of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and he will vote with the Washington liberals every single time.
Democrat Jones is soft on crime, weak on immigration, supports abortion, he’s bad for our military and bad for our vets. We don’t want him, and he also, by the way, wants higher taxes. Roy Moore is the guy we need to pass our “Make America Great Again” agenda. Roy is a conservative who’ll help me steer this country back on track after eight years of the Obama disaster. Get out and vote for Roy Moore. His vote is our Republican Senate, and it’s needed. We need Roy to help us with the Republican Senate. We will win and we will make America great again.
The message has some local political observers speculating that the calls are a way for Trump to boast of a last-minute victory should Moore win while still affording him some wiggle room if he loses.
Trump also implored attendees at a campaign rally on the edge of the Alabama-Florida border on Friday to vote for Moore.
