Kayla Moore stumped for her husband, embattled Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, on Monday evening. It didn't go well.

The candidate's wife, for reasons known only to her, decided to attempt a debunking of an anti-Semitism charge by informing a crowd that her family enjoys employing Jewish folks.

“Fake news will tell you that we don’t care for Jews,” Kayla Moore told a fired-up crowd.

"One of our attorneys," she continued before a knowing pause, "is a Jew." Her satisfied head bob speaks volumes.

Aside from the numerous allegations of sexual assault against the candidate, Moore has made numerous bigoted public statements, including that America was better during the era of slavery.

Watch Kayla Moore's statement below.
