Jimmy Kimmel owns Roy Moore in savage Twitter exchange

On Wednesday night, Moore spoke from the pulpit of Magnolia Springs Baptist Church in Alabama during which he claimed liberals, gays, bisexuals, transgender people, and socialists conspired to fabricate the sexual harassment accusations launched against him. "They are malicious and I don't know any of these women", Moore said at the Monday event. Moore told conservative talk show host Sean Hannity shortly after the first women came forward that he would not debate Jones because of his "very liberal stance on transgenderism and transgenderism in the military and in bathrooms". They are socialists who want to change our way of life and put man above God and the government is our God.

Moore also blamed "Democrats pushing a liberal agenda". There is nothing religious or Godly about a grown man taking advantage of young girls.

Moore laid out his theory of the conspiracy against him in further detail on Wednesday.

A protester then interrupted Moore's remarks, yelling, "Are all the girls lying?" "He's a man's man, the judge is a man's man!" he can be heard shouting in video of the incident obtained by "I understand that and I don't hate them, but I just want to state my position", Moore said. "Does that look like the face of a molester?"

He identified himself to CNN as Jake Byrd, the stage name of a comedian known for interrupting news events as part of the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

Kimmel has been in conservative crosshairs for a while now anyway, ever since he made a public and personal appeal to Congress to not strip Americans of their healthcare earlier this year.

Trump has not publicly condemned Moore, as many of his Republican colleagues in Washington have, but instead has kept criticizing Democratic Alabama Senate candidate Doug Jones.

The White House had distanced itself from Moore in recent weeks, and several high-profile Republicans called on him to quit the race altogether, following several allegations of sexual misconduct.

Alabama voters go to the polls on December 12 to replace Jeff Sessions, who is now the USA attorney general.
