“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski said Tuesday she would be nervous for Capitol Hill interns if Alabama Republican Roy Moore is elected to the U.S. Senate in the state’s special election next week.
“What are we going to do with internships on Capitol Hill if he wins?” asked Brzezinski. “Seriously, I would not send my daughter to work on the Hill.”
“Times have changed. You can’t be grabbing at little 17-year-old girls. You can’t have a guy in there who will do that,” she added with indignation. “I wouldn’t want my daughter near him.”
On the set of “Morning Joe” her co-host Joe Scarborough also made it clear that if you donated money to official Republican organs or to President Donald Trump — who officially endorsed Moore on Monday — you were helping his campaign.
“Let’s be clear. If you give money to President Trump or you give money to the Republican National Committee, you are going money to Roy Moore,” said Scarborough. “And you are endorsing everything that Roy Moore stands for. It’s pretty black and white.”
Moore, who was on his way to an easy win in the state, saw his prospects shrink dramatically after the Washington Post published several accusations of sexual misconduct against him, one of which included groping a 14-year-old girl.
In the immediate aftermath, more women came forward with stories about Moore’s behavior. The former judge has steadfastly denied all the allegations against him but nevertheless finds himself in a tight race with his Democratic opponent Doug Jones.
