These are same kind of people who say “Well Roy Moore was going after teenagers, so like, that’s not REAL pedophilia. If there’s grass on the field, it shouldn’t count as statutory, right?”
It’s okay to admit you backed the wrong horse. People will respect you more for finding common sense than sticking to whatever reasons keep you thinking all of this is okay.
If the president grabbed your mom by the pussy, would you still be cool with him? (I can’t believe that’s a sentence I even had to write).
If you found out Roy Moore molested your little sister, would he still be a viable candidate for you?
If you answer yes… this is why we’re all fucking doomed. This happens on both sides of the aisle. Neither side is perfect, not by a long shot. But at least when Al Franken was called out on being a scumbag he had the decency to step down rather than try to justify his scumminess to the masses.
