Pretty much everyone on this list has, at least at some point, expressed a modicum of concern about the allegations against Mr. Moore. Not President Trump. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders at one point issued a pro forma statement in the “if true, he should step down” vein, but multiple insider accounts from the White House hold that President Trump has remained sympathetic to the candidate and dubious of his accusers. By Thanksgiving, he was saying it out loud, telling reporters on his way to Mar-a-Lago, “Let me just tell you, Roy Moore denies it. That’s all I can say. He denies it. And, by the way, he totally denies it.” Early this month, he was on the phone with Mr. Moore offering his endorsement and urging him, “Go get ‘em, Roy.” This week, he made a campaign rally in Pensacola, Fla., as close to Alabama as you can get without actually crossing the border, in an unmistakable sign of support. There are a variety of explanations for Mr. Trump’s public embrace of the disgraced candidate — that he needs the vote in the Senate and doesn’t care about the price, that he loves thumbing his nose at the establishment, that he wants to claim credit if Mr. Moore wins. The most convincing explanation, though, is the possibility that by convincing himself that the accusations against Mr. Moore are false, he can convince himself that the allegations against him must be bogus, too. He has reportedly been telling people that the “Access Hollywood” tape in which he bragged about sexually assaulting women and getting away with it because of his fame was fake — despite his having admitted to it last year, and the White House was quick to push back against the three Trump accusers who appeared on Megyn Kelly’s show on NBC this morning. “These false claims, totally disputed in most cases by eyewitness accounts, were addressed at length during last year’s campaign,” the statement said. “And the American people voiced their judgment by delivering a decisive victory.” In other words, it’s not the truth that matters. It’s winning.
