Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) couldn’t resist poking fun at his ex-opponent after President Trump urged former Judge Roy Moore to not risk the fate of the Republican Party in Alabama by running for Senate again.

In a tweet, Jones mockingly apologized to “Roy,” by referencing the title of a romantic comedy.

“Sorry Roy, guess they’re just not that into you anymore,” he said.

On Wednesday morning, Trump tweeted warning of the “devastating” consequences if Moore opted to run for reelection, stating flatly that the former judge accused of molesting teens during the last election “cannot win.”

Moore has remained defiant since the denunciation from the President, a former supporter, telling Politico Wednesday evening that Trump “doesn’t control who votes” in Alabama.
