Hell Freezes Over=> Chuck Todd Shuts Down Roy Moore ‘Pedo Smear,’ Calls Out McConnell’s ‘Orchestrated’ Outrage (VIDEO)
Even a broken clock is right twice a day. On Sunday, “Meet the Press,” host Chuck Todd stopped MSNBC political analyst Elise Jordan dead in her tracks after she attempted to label Judge Roy Moore a pedophile.
Todd then went on to say Senate Leader Mitch McConnell’s outrage in respect to the Washington Post smear felt ‘orchestrated.’

Read the transcript of the exchange below:
All right. Roy Moore, Elise, I’ve got to ask you here, what’s the party– I mean Pat Toomey wouldn’t answer the question. What’s worse, if Roy Moore wins or loses, for the GOP?
I think absolutely it is worse if Roy Moore wins, for the GOP. And you look at that interview, that’s case in point. It was so uncomfortable for Senator Toomey to try to defend these charges of pedophilia against Roy Moore. And he was forced to say the allegations were 40 years old.
In fairness, the molestation doesn’t– it isn’t pedophilia. We looked up this legal definition to be careful there. But it’s molestation.
When it’s teen.
When you’re debate–
When it’s pre-teen it is pedophilia.
But when you are having to say–
When we’re having to debate this.
–when you are having to defend someone who is accused of it and who there are corroborated eyewitnesses backing up the case, it’s a tough position to be in.
Charlie Cook, is Mitch McConnell, the way he’s been– this clearly felt almost orchestrated. The minute, within an hour, this came out, many of the McConnell allies came out and said, “He’s got to go.” Sounds like Mitch McConnell has decided it’s worse if Roy Moore wins.
Despite the establishment’s attempt to thwart Moore’s campaign, Alabama voters are sticking by their candidate.
Breitbart News reports:
Two new polls demonstrate that GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate Judge Roy Moore remains unaffected entirely by smears in the Washington Post against him, and his lead before the Post piece on Thursday afternoon remains intact.
One of the polls, which were both provided by the pollster to Breitbart News exclusively on Saturday evening, was conducted on Thursday morning before the publication of the Post piece that afternoon. The second one was conducted on Saturday evening. Together, they show Judge Moore’s lead over Democrat Doug Jones has been virtually unaffected since the Post story came out.
The first survey, which was conducted entirely before noon local time on Thursday, shows Moore leading Jones by 50 percent to 39.2 percent with 10.8 percent undecided. That survey of 1,354 likely voters in the upcoming Dec. 12 special election has a margin of error of 3.5 percent.
As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft previously reported, Judge Roy Moore has vehemently denied the scurrilous charges.
On Saturday Roy Moore, the Republican senatorial candidate from Alabama, told an audience on Veterans Day that he’s “not been guilty of sexual conduct.”
