During a campaign event at an Alabama church yesterday, a comedian sent by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel showed up to poke fun at the embattled Alabama GOP Senate nominee by acting as a Moore superfan.
Why this matters: If Jones can not maintain Democrat fervor for more than two weeks and continue to suppress potential Moore voters, he stands very little chance of defeating the Republican candidate one-on-one.
Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has chose to pick a fight with the nation's foremost expert on health care, Jimmy Kimmel, all over a joke segment the late night talk show host tried to film at a Moore rally on Wednesday night.
Jones says he doesn't favor new restrictions on abortions and adds a woman's decision should be hers alone.
Moore, a vocal opponent of LGBT rights, told supporters that he's the victim of a "conspiracy" to derail his political career, which he blamed on "liberals, lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders and socialist".
"When I say they who are 'they?'" he asked rhetorically. "They don't want conservative values", Moore said from the pulpit of Magnolia Springs Baptist Church in Theodore.
9 four women came forward to allege Moore sexually assaulted them. "They're the Washington establishment.who don't want to lose their power". He said his family felt awful about the allegations.
A protester then interrupted Moore's remarks, yelling, "Are all the girls lying?"
Barbieri's prankster character has been used multiple times on Kimmel's show, usually in field segments where he appears at major events, such as Donald Trump's inauguration, the 2016 Republican National Convention and the presidential debate in Last Vegas previous year. Moore is running against Democrat Doug Jones.
Moore denies having a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old while he was 32.
