On his podcast, Moore argued that Trump is "smarter" than Democrats and has consistently been able to "pull stuff off" and avoid accountability for his actions. “We don’t want to say this out loud, but I’m going to say it, and the reason we need to be concerned is that Trump is smarter than us,” Moore said.
