Roy Moore tries to troll Democratic senator who beat him — and gets hilariously destroyed
Twice fired former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice and failed Republican U.S. Senate nominee Roy Moore may have lost the 2017 special election to now-Senator Doug Jones, but that doesn't mean he isn't going to run again.
Or, at least, that's what he'd like Senator Jones, the first Democrat to win the seat since 1992, and Jones' current GOP challenger, Bradley Byrne to think.
On Twitter, Moore Tuesday afternoon responded to a tweet a reporter for The Hill had posted, quoting Byrne.
"What is Bradley so worried about?" Moore tweeted, adding, "He knows that if I run I will beat Doug Jones."

Users on the social media platform quickly mocked Moore, who was accused of inappropriate sexual behavior, child molestation, or attempted rape by several women who came forward during his Senate campaign. One of the woman says she was 14 at the time.
MSNBC's Chris Hayes mocked Moore, tweeting, "Totally," and looping in ABC's Jake Tapper:
