Jerry Falwell, Jr. has defended Roy Moore from accusations of child molestation. Falwell compared Roy Moore to President Donald Trump, claiming that both men suffered from false accusations of sexual assault.
"It comes down to a question who is more credible in the eyes of the voters — the candidate or the accuser. The same thing happened to President Trump a few weeks before his election last year except it was several women making allegations,” he continued, referring to the "Access Hollywood" tape where Trump can be heard bragging about groping and kissing women without their consent. “He denied that any of them were true and the American people believed him and elected him the 45th president of the United States. And I believe the judge is telling the truth. I don’t think this kind of story will change support for him among Christians since he has categorically denied it. Most will see it as dirty politics."
