'Team Sport Politics': 'The Five' Reacts to Conservatives Opposing Each Other on Moore Election
The panel on The Five reacted to President Donald Trump and a top Alabama conservative Republican finding themselves on opposing sides of the Roy Moore-Doug Jones senate contest.
Moore (R) and Jones (D) face off Tuesday in the special election for the seat formerly held by current Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the deep red state.
Trump recorded a robocall in support of Moore, which was sent around throughout the Yellowhammer State.
Meanwhile, Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a longtime conservative leader in Congress, told CNN he did not vote for Moore.
"I understand where the president is coming from," Shelby said, adding that he did not vote for either candidate but wrote in a "distinguished Republican" name.
"There's a time - we call it a tipping point - and I think so many accusations, so many cuts, so many 'drip-drip-drip.' When it came to the 14-year-old [accuser] story, that was enough for me," Shelby said.
Jesse Watters said that in the wake of allegations against Moore, his presence in the senate could be "very awkward," but added that the former judge's candidacy was helped by several high-profile Democrats being subsequently accused of misconduct.
Greg Gutfeld called the difference of opinion between conservative Republicans like Shelby and Trump an example of "team sport politics."
