Morning Joe Laments ‘Depravity of Conservative Media’ For Defending Roy Moore: ‘He’s an Animal’ (Mediaite)

Morning Joe tore into Republicans standing by Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who was accused on Friday by four women of preying on them when they were in their teens.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, who is filling in for usual hosts Joe & Mika, started by mentioning Fox News and Breitbart’s response to the allegations, claiming the report will test “the depths and depravity of conservative media outlets that defend someone like Roy Moore, who is now known to be a pedophile, unless you don’t believe the women.”

Willie Geist then ran through a number of reactions from Alabama Republicans essentially shrugging off the allegations — including the astounding “14-year-olds don’t make good decisions” remark.
