Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore’s chief political strategist Dean Young delivered a spirited defense of his boss Tuesday during a press briefing in Montgomery, Alabama.
Young took to the podium to deliver a confident message directly to the Alabamians who will be casting their votes on December 12th.
"All of this stuff will be settled, and Judge Moore will be our next senator," Young said.
Young said Moore will help Trump with his agenda, and that everyone should ignore "Jerry Springer stuff" and support Moore.
"All this Jerry Springer stuff is over, and I'm talking to all y'all," Young said, apparently referring to the media. "We're not going to do this anymore as a campaign, so all you people that run around yelling stuff at Judge Moore, asking him these ridiculous questions—I'm the chief political strategist, and my advice is: Every time they yell something like that to you, Judge Moore, or to the campaign, just think ‘it's the Jerry Springer show,' don't answer it."
"We believe Judge Moore, we don't believe these women, it's just that simple," he added. "Y'all can keep trotting them out if you want to, but we're not going to talk about that. We're going to talk about helping Donald Trump and making American great again."
Nine women have accused Moore of "questionable behavior or to allege sexual assault," the Washington Post timeline shows.
In an open letter to Fox News' Sean Hannity, Moore denied multiple allegations. And those not addressed in the open letter were unequivocally denied Tuesday by Moore's campaign, putting the blame on "fake media" and Washington elites on both sides of the aisle.
"What we are seeing on a national and a worldwide effort is to stop Judge Roy Moore at any cost. And when I say at any cost: [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell [R., Ky.] has spent over 30 million dollars trying to stop Roy Moore, the Washington Post, and all the fake media. For the last two weeks, they've said everything they can say about Judge Moore," Young said.
Young described the narrative that Alabamians are the target of misinformation designed to stop Moore from being elected.
"This is where the rubber hits the road. What are Alabamians going to do?" Young said. "If you can be tricked in two weeks about Judge Roy Moore, then they win."
Young credited Trump for giving Alabama voters a positive agenda to support by voting for Moore.
"I think the future of this country rides on this race," Young said, "And let me tell you why. Donald Trump just exploded the establishment. This is the first senatorial election since Donald Trump went into office."
Young also criticized Moore's Democratic opponent Doug Jones for being a pro-choice liberal.
"Now this other guy Doug the Liberal Democrat Jones, he will not put someone on [the Supreme Court] that stands against abortion, because Doug the Liberal Democrat Jones stands for abortion with his own words all the way until the baby's born," Young said. "That’s who this guy is, now he's trying to trick y'all too. Now don't think the Democrats aren't trying to trick you guys. He tries to trick y’all to make y’all think that he's some moderate, well he's not."
Also on Tuesday, President Donald Trump signaled a major shift coming from White House toward Moore repeating saying Moore "totally denies" the allegations.
"I can tell you one thing for sure. We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat. Jones, I've looked at his record," Trump said. "It's terrible on crime. It's terrible on the border. It's terrible on the military. I can tell you for a fact; we do not need somebody that's going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, bad with the military, bad for the Second Amendment."
Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump said in an interview with the Associated Press last week that she has "no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts."
