Playing a clip from President Donald Trump's Tuesday comments about the Senate candidate where he repeatedly says the phrase "he denies it", Colbert picked apart the president's insistence that "you have to listen to [Moore]" for his take on the allegations.

Republican Roy Moore is facing accusations from at least 8 women that he engaged in various levels of sexual misconduct with them when they were teens and he was in his 30's.

He then played footage of Trump's presser earlier today when he said "We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat" in regards to the open seat in Alabama.

In Alabama's Senate special election, a new Raycom News Network Senate Election poll conducted by Strategy Research found Roy Moore (R) with a narrow lead over Doug Jones (D), 47% to 45%.

Moore has denied every charge, including Corfman's accusation that he molested her when she was 14, and Nelson's claim that he touched her at age 16.

On Tuesday the Moore campaign's chief political strategist, Dean Young, delivered a scathing statement to the media - blasting his accusers as politically motivated and unbelievable. "They were girls when Roy Moore immorally pursued them", the announcer says in the opening.

He continued to play footage of Trump during the presser when he incessantly said that Moore "denied it".

"He totally denies it".

His position was a break from that of other national Republicans.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, both Republicans, have called on Moore to leave the race.

The committees were reluctant to go on the record or to elaborate, but they said nothing has changed since their decision, two officials told CNN.

However, Moore, a former chief justice of the Alabama state Supreme Court, has dismissed all the allegations and refused to withdraw from the December 12 special election. He told reporters: "I'll be letting you know next week". Forty-seven percent of Alabama voters back Moore, while Jones receives 45 percent of the votes.
