Roy Moore still hasn’t conceded the Alabama Senate Race to obvious and accepted winner Doug Jones; in fact, he’s still fighting with the cheapest shots he has left.
The bigoted loser posted a link to an interview The Advocate published with Doug Jones’ son Carson, who is gay, to his Facebook. Presented without comment and likely intended to invite homophobic Moore supporters to have at it, the link was later removed.
It’s pretty easily inferred that Moore posted this with his own homophobic intent; a spokesman for Moore told CNN that the failed Senate candidate “probably” thinks homosexuality should be illegal.
Moore’s plan did not exactly go off without a hitch.
Commenters quickly pointed to a pot calling the kettle black situation, criticizing Moore for trying to shame someone else’s son when his own son, Caleb, has been arrested nine times. Hardly the picture of family values.
Roy Moore lost to Democrat Doug Jones in a special election to fill Attorney General, Jeff Sessions’ Senate Seat. It was the first time since 1992 that a Democrat has won in deep red Alabama.
The loss was a blow to Trump and the GOP, especially considering Trump won the state in the 2016 election with 62 percent of the vote. Trump threw his support behind Moore after initially supporting his challenger, Luther Strange, in the Republican primary.
Even Trump distanced himself from Moore following the loss, posting on Twitter that he knew all along Moore would lose.
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!

Moore tweeted after the polls had closed and Jones declared the winner with a statement in support of the fight for the “heart and soul of the country,” against the evils of “abortion, sodomy, and materialism.” Homosexuality was no doubt included in the first draft of that speech.
I want to thank all of you who have stood with me in this very important battle for the future of our country. https://t.co/NOlh7N7BiP

Looks like Moore is grasping at straws as his failed campaign issues its dying breaths and the rest of the country moves on to more important things.
