Moore then launched into a defense of his character, arguing that he doesn't hold any negative views of Jewish people, women or African-Americans.
“Fake news would tell you that we don’t care for Jews,” Moore said. “I tell you all this because I’ve seen it all, so I just want to set the record straight while they’re here.”
“One of our attorneys is a Jew,” she continued. “We have very close friends that are Jewish and rabbis, and we also fellowship with them.”
Kayla Moore added that they “have many friends that are black, and we also fellowship with them in church and in our home.”
Kayla Moore seemed to be responding to criticism of her husband’s comments about billionaire philanthropist George Soros, who is Jewish and a Holocaust survivor.
In a Dec. 4 interview with American Family Radio, a Christian radio network, Roy Moore suggested that Soros, a major Democratic donor, will go to hell for his religious beliefs. Moore has accused Soros of funding the eight women who have made sexual misconduct allegations against Moore.
In the interview Moore said of Soros, “No matter how much money he’s got, he’s still going to the same place that people who don’t recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going. And that’s not a good place.”
