One of the biggest stories in American politics in recent weeks have been the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against Alabama senate hopeful Roy Moore. As the pressure mounts on Moore, it doesn't appear that the White House is ready to completely back off his campaign.

Conway on Moore

It was earlier this month when the Washington Post broke their bombshell story [VIDEO]revealing the sexual assault and harassment allegations by four women who directed their complaints at Roy Moore. Moore is currently the Republican nominee to run in the special senate election in Alabama against his Democratic challenger Doug Jones as both men fight over the seat left vacant by current Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

It was likely that Moore would fill the seat since Alabama has long been a red state, but the Washington Post story has turned the election upside down. Since then, Moore has denied the allegations, but additional information has since been released, with even more women coming forward. The allegations go on to claim that Moore attempted to engage in sexual activity with the women when they were underage, causing a split in the Republican Party in how to handle the situation. These issues were brought up during an interview with Kellyanne Conway during the November 20 edition of "Fox & Friends" on Fox News.

Joining the hosts of "Fox & Friends" on Monday morning was Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway. "I think the Democrats are in big trouble," Conway said, pointing out that many of the 2018 congressional seats up for grabs are in areas that supported Donald Trump.

Conway then shifted her focus in attacking Doug Jones over the upcoming Alabama senate race, hitting back at the Democratic challenger for allegedly being weak on taxes.

Looking confused, co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Kellyanne Conway, "so, vote for Roy Moore?" "I'm telling you we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through," Conway said, before bringing up the recent sexual assault allegations against Democratic Sen. Al Franken, referring to him as a "half-funny comedian." After Kilmeade doubled down on his question, Conway once again deflected from the question in support of keeping Jones out of the Senate.

"Right, and, you know what?" Kellyanne Conway said. "I just want everyone to know, Doug Jones, I want everyone to know his name. They pretend like he's some kind of conservative Democrat and he's not," she added.

The segment came to a close as Conway continued to look bewildered in her apparent defense and endorsement of Roy Moore.

Twitter reacts

After Kellyanne Conway's interview on Fox News was broadcasted, critics took time to fire back on social media. "I believe @KellyannePolls has a young daughter. I wonder if she is prepared to leave that daughter in the custody of #RoyMooreChildMolester for only 30 mins!" on tweet read.

"Kellyanne Conway Just Said It’s OK for Senators To Be P*dophiles," another tweet added. "Kellyanne is all in for Roy Moore. There are no words for her repulsive accommodation of a child molester. The moral rot of the GOP is now complete. There's a special place in hell for Conway," one Twitter user noted.

"To state you want people to vote for P*DOPHILE ROY is low EVEN for you. Do you have any self respect or morality?" ad additional tweet stated. As the backlash continued to pour in, only time will tell how the special election in Alabama plays out.
