President Trump has broken with his party leadership and his own daughter, telling reporters that Roy Moore "totally denies" the multiple sexual harassment and assault allegations against him and "you have to listen to him also."
Axios' Jonathan Swan emails with crucial context: "The RNC and NRSC have pulled all support for Moore. Multiple senior Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have said they believe Moore's female accusers... Ivanka Trump told the AP: 'There's a special place in hell for people who prey on children. I've yet to see a valid explanation and I have no reason to doubt the victims' accounts.'"

But Trump was only part of another historic day. The quick hits:
The annual presidential turkey pardon happened today, and Drumstick picked up the crucial pardon.
Trump's joke: "As many as of you know, I have been very active in overturning many actions of my predecessor, but I have been informed by the White House Counsel's Office that Tater and Tot's pardons [made by former President Barack Obama] cannot under any circumstances be revoked. Tater and Tot, you can rest easy."
