A Breitbart editor tried to shield the sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama Republican Roy Moore by referencing a Ringo Starr song.
“You understand, in 1973, Ringo Starr hit No. 1 on the billboard charts with the song ‘You’re Sixteen, You’re Beautiful and You’re Mine,'” Breitbart’s Joel Pollak stated on CNN. “Plus it was a remake of a previous tune. He had been 30-something about a 16-year-old, singing at the moment. You wish to remove Ringo Starr’s achievement?”
CNN’s Chris Cuomo looked incredulous at the remark of Pollak.
“You can’t be serious,” he told Pollak. “You think that Ringo Starr’s tune is likely to be a nod towards letting 30-year-old men to prey on teenagers? You don’t think that, Joel. You’re a parent. You don’t even think that.”
Moore, who’s currently running for Senate, faces multiple allegations he sexually harassed and assaulted teenage women while he was in his 30s.
