A Roy Moore supporter equated sexual assault with smoking pot, doing some coke and stealing a lawnmower and then told CNN he voted for Trump even though he believes he did some of that sex stuff because of Christian "forgiveness."

I thought a person had to ask for forgiveness before forgiveness would be even considered. Instead Trump and Moore have vehemently denied any and all allegations of impropriety or possible crimes.

Brandon Moseley wrote a piece in support of Roy Moore on an independent Alabama website called "I believe Judge Roy Moore" and CNN's Brooke Baldwin had him on to explain.

The interview almost immediately went off the rails. In Brandon's mind if a criminal charge could not be brought on Judge Moore then all this talk is irrelevant because ti happened 38 years ago. And he knows Moore for 20 years so there's that.

He started off by describing the charges from Moore's women accusers this way.

"I think if this was a serious -- if these allegations were out there and were serious I probably would have heard them," he said.

Baldwin, "Let me jump in. you are use the word serious. Why don't you think these allegations are serious?"

They’re 38-year-old allegations — this would be a misdemeanor at the time under the code of Alabama. The statute’s been up since ’86. If you go back and you don’t elect anyone who has ever done anything wrong we wouldn’t have had Barack Obama. I think he did cocaine. Bill Clinton supposedly smoked marijuana.”

Baldwin's was starting to contort as he was saying this nonsense and she said, “OK, what?!?’

Baldwin tried to keep him on track and “function in the factual world.” Moseley believes there was no crime committed by Moore even if he tried to have sex with a 14 year-old.

Baldwin then corrected him by explaining there was an actual law in the books back then, "She was 14 years of age. I don't know how much digging you did or didn't do into the law in 1979, but we did."

She continued, "And we found, section 13a, 667, we found that this was on the books going back to '77, and would have been considered sexual abuse in the second degree. Care to respond?"

"Which is a misdemeanor in Alabama."

"Does that make it okay --?"

"No, but again, if, Roy Moore had stolen a lawnmower when he was 21 that's bad, but that's not a reason 50 years later to all of a sudden, you know, throw him off the ballot or let Mitch McConnell pick the next senator of Alabama."

Baldwin sighed and used hand gestures to accentuate her point, "Sexual abuse, stealing a lawn mower, "Let's not even go there."

He then gave the weirdest defense of Donald Trump's admitted sexual assaults and why he still voted for him so far.

After listening to Beverly Young Nelson's description of Roy Moore's her "alleged" sexual assault on her, he's more of a deviant as he's been portrayed so far.

Apparently Mosley's lawnmower is more important to him then the safety of underage girls against sexual predators.
