During an interview on MSNBC’s MTP Daily, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) called on Roy Moore to drop out of the Alabama Senate race, and President Donald Trump to resign over the 17 allegations of sexual assault against him.
Sen. Merkley said, “What we do know is this. That the individual running in Alabama, Roy Moore, has done things that are incredibly egregious, and he should drop out of that race right now, and by the way, for that matter, the President should resign because he certainly has a track record with more than 17 women of horrific conduct.”
Merkley’s comments are a sign that Democrats are about to come after Trump with both barrels, and if Republicans elect Roy Moore to the Senate, Democrats will define the GOP as the party of pedophiles and sexual assault.
The Russia scandal is always huge and never disappears off of the radar, but in the current changing cultural environment, Democrats have a chance to make Trump pay for what he is accused of doing to more than 17 women, and the Republican Party suffer for enabling and supporting him.
