Roy Moore Escalated His Feud With Kimmel. Kimmel Just Ended It With A Showstopping Comeback

The country got one of its strangest Trump era Twitter feuds yet earlier today when a spat broke out between popular late-night host Jimmy Kimmel and Republican Senate candidate and serial pedophile Roy Moore.

The Senate candidate was angry that a writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live! had traveled south to crash a Moore campaign rally that was disguised as church service. The writer was protesting the serial predator’s ongoing Senate campaign, and the incident was caught on camera:

Moore tweeted about the event:

Kimmel responded with a zinger:

Now, Moore has lashed out again, doing his trademark impersonation of a hospitable Christian. Don’t be fooled. He tweeted:

Kimmel jumped at the chance to take another jab at Moore, and made a sly reference to the fact that Moore likes to prey on teenage and underage girls:

Several weeks ago, The Washington Post published a bombshell report in which four women – a number that has since grown precipitously – stepped forward to accuse Roy Moore, at the time a District Attorney in his 30s, of engaging in sexual behavior while they were between the ages of 14- and 18-years-old. The story, corroborated by over 30 sources, hardly paints the picture of “Christian values” that Moore so hypocritically espouses on the campaign trail.

After hearing Moore’s tepid defense in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Senators from both sides of the aisle have sided with the accusers and publicly urged Moore to step aside. He has shown no willingness to do so.

Even Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) threatened to subject Moore to expulsion proceedings in the Senate in the event that he is elected.

“If he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee,” McConnell said at a Wall Street Journal event. “He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath and it would be a rather unusual beginning, probably an unprecedented beginning.”

In his desperation to discredit his numerous accusers of sexual misconduct and pedophilia, Moore claimed at a Monday night campaign event that his victims are not to be trusted because real victims would never allow their faces to be seen in the news.

“I’ve represented many victims in cases such as this. I have not seen one who wanted her picture posted on national TV, especially in a political advertisement. The truth is, this is not really odd at all. It is simply dirty politics and it’s a sign of the immorality of our time,” Moore said.

To be clear, this is an accused child molester lecturing people about immoral behavior.

Moore is alleging that every single one of his accusers is lying because no true victim of sexual misconduct could possibly want “her picture posted on national TV.” In other words, he has decided that real sexual assault and rape victims are only found in the shadows and as soon as they speak up, their credibility is decimated. How convenient that would be for people like him.

Trump, however, in a move as shameful as it is unsurprising, endorsed the Republican Senate hopeful.

Roy Moore may feel emboldened to talk a big game on Twitter, but the Alabama Republican lost his chance to engage anyone “man to man” the moment he molested an underage girl. He should be issuing apologies to his victims, not thinly-veiled threats to comedians.
