Seth Meyers rips apart Roy Moore after his primary election win
Former Alabama judge Roy Moore won the Alabama Republican primary runoff for Senate Tuesday. Although Donald Trump endorsed his opponent, Seth Meyers demonstrated just how much the president and Moore have in common with each other.
Moore believes that Barack Obama wasn’t born in the U.S. He defied the Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage and previously called Islam a “false religion.” Meyers decried Moore’s “open bigotry and homophobia” as well as his lack of knowledge in major policy that he, as a Senate candidate, would certainly need to know. For instance, he had no idea what DACA was, and when pressed by a Vox reporter, couldn’t back up his claims that there were communities in the U.S. under Sharia law.
But Moore is about the spectacle. He rode to his polling location on a horse and took out a gun when talking about the Second Amendment at a campaign rally.
“Like Trump, Moore cares very little about the nuances of policies that affect millions of people’s lives and cares much more about riling his base through spectacle and grievance,” Meyers said.
