Doug Jones Beat Roy Moore In The Alabama Senate Election And Twitter Can't Believe It

After a campaign in which Republican candidate Roy Moore was accused of pursuing relationships with teenage girls during his 80s, Democrat Doug Jones has won the Alabama Senate Election with a narrow margin. Jones will be the first Democratic senator from Alabama in more than two decades. 

Roy Moore was expected to win the election, which was called when Jeff Sessions gave up his seat to be President Donald Trump’s Attorney General. 

President Donald Trump had endorsed Moore in a series of tweets, while the accusations led many Republican senators to disown their candidate. The Republican majority in the Senate is now down to just two votes.

In an election that was decided by a few thousand votes, and an incredibly high turnout for groups such as African Americans, you can probably guess how social media reacted. 

Jeff Flake took to Twitter to slam Moore. 

As did Hillary Clinton. 

And here’s how the rest of social media reacted…

Trump Just Admitted Russia Interfered In The Election, And Then Blamed Obama For It

Trump’s Criticism May Mean He’s Finally Admitting The Truth

Telling on someone, but indicting yourself in the process, is a mistake many children make. Just ask any child who told an adult they were goofing off in class in hopes their classmate gets in trouble, when they just openly admitted to it as well. President Trump now knows what that feels like.

On Friday, the Washington Post published a story saying how the Obama administration was given a report stating Russia was interfering in the 2016 Presidential election and how they handled it. Then, they went so far as to say President Vladmir Putin was personally involved in the cyber attack to disrupt the outcome of the U.S. presidential race.

Shortly after, President Donald had something to say about the story.

Trump tweeted out his thoughts on the information given in the article, appearing outraged the Obama administration did nothing to prevent the hacking.

He then followed up the Friday tweeting by tweeting more on Saturday.

By criticizing and calling out Obama’s supposed lack of action, it seemed Trump finally admitted Russia did meddle in the 2016 election.

For months before, and after, his inauguration, Trump referred to any act of Russian interference as ‘fake news.’ The closest he’s gotten to  admitting what intelligence officials have been saying for months has been “other countries and other people” may have hacked the U.S. 

The problem is Trump now admitting the election that put him in the White House may not have been a true win. Even Sean Spicer said Friday that the President stands by his statements that Russia “probably” hacked the DNC.
