Chuck Todd: Roy Moore ‘Doesn’t Appear to Believe in the Constitution’ Because He Said Our Rights Come from God

TODD – Good evening. I’m Chuck Todd here in Washington and welcome to “Mtp daily.” We begin the night with a purge of the GOP establishment. A crisis of confidence in Mitch McConnell, a weakened president who’s now scrubbing his Twitter feed and the political earthquake in Alabama underneath it all. If you’re not familiar with this guy, pull up a chair. Because after knocking off the president, Mcconnell’s preferred knt in the Alabama runoff by nearly ten points, Roy Moore with a phrase Christian conservative doesn’t even begin to describe him, could very well be your next U.S. Senator. If you don’t understand just how freaked out some folks in the GOP in the White House are about what that means, then you don’t know Roy Moore. First off, he doesn’t appear to believe in the Constitution as it’s written.
MOORE –  Our rights don’t come from government or from a bill of rights. They come from almighty god.
TODD –  Now, that’s just a taste of what are very fundamentalist views that have gotten him removed twice at Alabama chief justice. Once for refuse toll follow a court order to remove this 350-pound monuments of the ten commandments he had installed in the state courthouse and once for ordering state judges to ignore the United States supreme Court’s ruling that same-sex marriages are constitutional. Take a look at what he has said about the issue of same-sex rights.
