The biggest story to dominate the news over the last week have been growing sexual assault allegations involving Republican Roy Moore. With the pressure mounting, Donald Trump has refused to call Moore out and ask him to back out of the race for Senate in the state of Alabama.

Trump on Moore

Earlier this fall, the New York Times broke a bombshell story revealing decades of sexual assault and harassment at the hands of film producer Harvey Weinstein. Dozens of women came forward to accuse Weinstein of various acts of inappropriate behavior, ranging from sexual harassment to sexual assault.

The dominos quickly fell and Weinstein was fired from his own production company. Since then, women have come out to accuse many powerful men of similar allegations, from actors, to directors, and even politicians. It was just over a week ago when the Washington Post broke their own story reporting that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore allegedly attempted to engage in sexual activity with at least four underage women, with the oldest claim dating back to 1979. Moore has denied the allegations, claiming they are a part of a "liberal media" smear attack against him. The paper had 30 sources to back-up their story, with even more women coming forward to the point that top Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have called on Moore to drop out of the race.

As reported by The Hill on November 16, the White House has finally put together their consensus.

During Thursday afternoon's press briefing at the White House, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed reporters about where Donald Trump currently stands on the Roy Moore scandal.

"The president believes that these allegations are very troubling and should be taken seriously," Sanders said.

Not stopping there, Sarah Huckabee Sanders elaborated further on Donald Trump's current stance on whether or not Roy Moore should remain in the race.

"He (Trump) thinks that the people of Alabama should make the decision on who their next senator should be," Sanders noted. Sander's remarks double down on Trump's initial reaction where the president warned people not to rush to judgement.

Twitter reacts

Not long after Sarah Huckabee Sanders relayed Donald Trump's message to the public, critics on social media were quick to speak out. "ZERO Shock..... ZERO!! Integrity isn't a characteristic of this White House," one tweet read.

"Of course the @WhiteHouse would never do that.

If it did, then it would be admitting that Donald Trump should do the exact same for his sexual harassment, assault, and rape allegations to. Same ol' BS "nothing to see here, folks" as always," another tweet added. "Of course he does. How can he say Moore’s behavior is unacceptable when he has demeaned women his whole life," an additional Twitter user wrote.

"This is not shocking, he doesn't speak out against Nazis, he certainly isn't going to speak out against pedophiles," a follow up tweet stated.

"Trump wld have 2 acknowledge his own sexual harassment actions. He can't throw stones when he's the sinner in chief!" yet another tweet noted. The negative reaction continued as the backlash against Donald Trump, Roy Moore, and the Republican Party moved forward.
