This is absolutely the most disgusting false equivalency I’ve ever seen.
Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore has a history of preying on underage teen girls. And he has been accused by several of sexually abusing them. One girl was 14-years-old at the time.
But rather than denounce him and force him to step aside, Republicans have been defending him and his behavior, even going so far as to use the Bible to do so.
Ann Coulter, however, decided to defend Roy Moore by comparing his abuse of a 14-year-old girl to former President John F. Kennedy’s affair with a 19-year-old woman.
Hey Dems! JFK had an extra marital affair with 19-year old Mimi Alford when he was 45 years old. https://t.co/E5l3ncflDG

Except the two situations are totally different. Kennedy’s affair was consensual and was with an adult. Moore sexually abused a 14-year-old girl. A girl of that age is what most people would refer to as “jail bait.” That’s because 14 is below the age of consent. And a 14-year-old is considered a child under the law so Moore’s actions is what the law considers pedophilia. Period.
In response to Coulter’s pathetic post, Twitter users nailed her to the wall.
Yes I forgot his dead body is running for Senate

Roy Moore should be in jail, not running for a seat in the United States Senate. And Ann Coulter should be ashamed of herself for defending him.
