Roy Moore Trashes America, Praises Vladimir Putin In Interview With The Guardian
During a recent interview with The Guardian, Republican Senate candidate from Alabama Roy Moore found similarities between himself and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Moore slammed the United States for promoting “a lot of bad things,” and praised the Russian leader, saying “Putin is right.”
In an interview in late August that’s getting renewed attention this week, the newspaper quoted President Ronald Reagan as once calling the Soviet Union “the focus of evil in the modern world.” Reagan made the comment during his “evil empire” speech in 1983.
“You could say that very well about America, couldn’t you?” Moore said. “We promote a lot of bad things.”
Moore then cited same-sex marriage as an example.
When questioned about the fact that Putin held similar views, Moore gave an unconventional answer for an American politician.
“Well, then maybe Putin is right,” Moore said. “Maybe he’s more akin to me than I know.”
