On Wednesday, “Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt discussed Democrat Doug Jones’s victory over controversial GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore in the Alabama special election.
“When Jones caught a break, when all these allegations came out against Judge Moore. The environment was really bad…It was hard for women especially to go to the polls and vote for him even though those allegations were just allegations and even though it happened so long ago,” Earhardt said.
She continued, stating, “This was not a referendum on Trump. I feel like it was a referendum on Harvey Weinstein.”
President Trump addressed Roy Moore’s defeat in a series of tweets Wednesday morning.
“Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!” Trump tweeted.
He continued, writing, “The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!”
Trump added, “If last night’s election proved anything, it proved that we need to put up GREAT Republican candidates to increase the razor thin margins in both the House and Senate.”
