After finally breaking his silence today to endorse accused child molester Roy Moore (R) for the U.S. Senate, bucking a slew of outspoken Republicans, Trump followed his announcement by once again departing for vacation at Mar-a-Lago.
Per pool, Trump has arrived at Mar-a-Lago.
This is his 98th day at a Trump property as president.

Today’s visit to Mar-a-Lago is Trump’s 98th day at one of his own properties since taking office 305 days ago. In other words, he has spent approximately a third of his presidency at a Trump-owned property.
The move comes on the heels of Trump’s controversial announcement today coming out in support of a Republican candidate who has been accused of inappropriate sexual behavior by at least five women, one of whom was as young as 14-years-old, while Moore was a 32-year-old District Attorney. The accusations were brought forth in a stunning editorial in The Washington Post and corroborated by over 30 sources.

“We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat,” Trump told reporters.
“Is an accused child molester better than a democrat?” a reporter pressed.
“Well, he denies it,” Trump responded. “He totally denies it, he says it didn’t happen and, you know, you have to listen to him also.”
It should come as no surprise that Trump would support an accused pedophile given his own sordid history with women. At least 10 womenhave come forward alleging sexual assault by Trump before taking office. He has neither confessed to these crimes nor taken any degree of responsibility for them. Even in the face of damning evidence – such as the Access Hollywood tapes – the President has refused to address the issue.
It is wholly par for the course that the last move this President would make before departing for Mar-a-Lago is an endorsement of a man who is unfit to walk the streets, much less serve in the United States Senate.
