Watch Roy Moore, the Latest GOP Star, Argue for Criminalizing Homosexuality

Trump infuriated after backing Alabama loser

The President has said he doesn't like losers.

First, the recent loss of Senator Luther Strange nearly certainly opens the door for anti-establishment primary challenges.

And even though Trump backed odd in the primary, Moore has repeatedly expressed his admiration of the president's agenda and flaunted his slogan, "Make America Great Again".

From President Donald Trump to the Democratic National Committee, the political world reacted quickly to Roy Moore's primary runoff victory on Tuesday night.

Roy Moore defeated the incumbent, Senator Luther Strange, with 55 per cent of the vote.

Trump - who belittled traditional Republicans in his insurgent bid for the presidency - had campaigned for unusual in Alabama and sent Twitter messages urging fellow Republicans to vote for him.

The Republican Party has a new star: former judge Roy Moore. "He will help to #MAGA!" he tweeted, referring to his "Make America Great Again" catchphrase.

Asked if he will work with McConnell, Moore says he'll work with anyone that "stands for a conservative agenda".

Watch the discussion above.

Michelle Malkin: How long have the beltway establishment types promised us that "oh well you know our hands are tied, we can't do much here, we need control of all branches of government" and you've got it, and you can't do this?

Trump, officials and informal advisers say, felt misled by McConnell and his political team, who encouraged him to endorse and campaign for odd. They were in Alabama supporting Roy Moore.

Trump and allies of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell backed Moore's opponent Luther Strange in the race and Trump traveled to Alabama last Friday to stump for Strange. Moore, a bible-quoting evangelical, drew support from Christian conservative Sarah Palin and recently-sacked White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Moore won an absurdly expensive primary to fill seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and the extraordinary contradiction often overlooked is that Moore has no credibility at all, except perhaps among Dixie homophobes. Meanwhile, Bannon campaigned for Moore, and his website ran a stream of articles bolstering the candidacy of the twice removed judge with a history of incendiary comments.

Much to the discomfiture of Trump, who had won Alabama by a big margin in the presidential election, it was Moore who won by a large margin (56% to 43%) against unusual in the runoff, winning the Republican nomination for the Senate contest in which he is widely expected to prevail over the Democratic rival in December. But, as I said, I think this ... could set off a new level of insane, in terms of the political environment at least for the Senate seats.

So anyone who supports Moore should essentially forfeit the right to say he or she believes in the rule of law.

ELLIOTT: Well, I don't know if he did it, but they disappeared, yes.

"And I might have made a mistake".
