Jimmy Kimmel Just Accepted Roy Moore’s Fight Challenge In The Best Way

- Desember 01, 2017

After yesterday’s tumultuous back-and-forth between Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore and Jimmy Kimmel, the late night talk show host took to the airwaves to accept Moore’s implied fight challenge – to meet “man to man” – and even suggested the perfect location.

Per a report by The New Yorker, Moore was allegedly banned from the Gadsden Mall “for his inappropriate behavior of soliciting sex from young girls.”

[Former mall worker Greg] Legat says that he saw Moore there a few times, even though his understanding then was that he had already been banned. “It started around 1979, I think,” Legat said. “I know the ban was still in place when I got there.” Legat recalled a Gadsden police officer named J. D. Thomas, now retired, who worked security at the mall. “J. D. was a fixture there, when I was working at the store,” Legat said. “He really looked after the kids there. He was a good guy. J. D. told me, ‘If you see Roy, let me know. He’s banned from the mall.’ ” Legat recalled Thomas telling him, “If you see Moore here, tell me. I’ll take care of him.’ ”

The Kimmel-Moore feud began when Tony Barbieri, a writer for Kimmel, showed up at the Magnolia Springs Baptist Church in Theodore, Alabama to disrupt a service that doubled as a campaign event for the Senate hopeful and accused child molester.

Roy Moore took to Twitter to issue some menacing words to the late night talk show host.

Upon seeing the tweet, Kimmel wasted no time in striking back at the accused pedophile, leading to an escalating war of words.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

Several weeks ago, The Washington Post published a bombshell report in which four women – a number that has since grown precipitously – stepped forward to accuse Roy Moore, at the time a District Attorney in his 30s, of engaging in sexual behavior while they were between the ages of 14- and 18-years-old. The story, corroborated by over 30 sources, hardly paints the picture of “Christian values” that Moore so hypocritically espouses on the campaign trail.

After hearing Moore’s tepid defense in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Senators from both sides of the aisle have sided with the accusers and publicly urged Moore to step aside. He has shown no willingness to do so.

Even Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) threatened to subject Moore to expulsion proceedings in the Senate in the event that he is elected.

“If he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee,” McConnell said at a Wall Street Journal event. “He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath and it would be a rather unusual beginning, probably an unprecedented beginning.”

In his desperation to discredit his numerous accusers of sexual misconduct and pedophilia, Moore claimed at a Monday night campaign event that his victims are not to be trusted because real victims would never allow their faces to be seen in the news.

“I’ve represented many victims in cases such as this. I have not seen one who wanted her picture posted on national TV, especially in a political advertisement. The truth is, this is not really odd at all. It is simply dirty politics and it’s a sign of the immorality of our time,” Moore said.

To be clear, this is an accused child molester lecturing people about immoral behavior.

Moore is alleging that every single one of his accusers is lying because no true victim of sexual misconduct could possibly want “her picture posted on national TV.” In other words, he has decided that real sexual assault and rape victims are only found in the shadows and as soon as they speak up, their credibility is decimated. How convenient that would be for people like him.

Trump, however, in a move as shameful as it is unsurprising, endorsed the Republican Senate hopeful.

Roy Moore may feel emboldened to talk a big game on Twitter, but the Alabama Republican lost his chance to engage anyone “man to man” the moment he molested an underage girl. Then again, as Jimmy mentioned, “man to man” is better than the alternative, “man to little girl,” which is exactly what got Moore into his mess in the first place.
