Playing the fictional character Jake Byrd, Barbieri appeared in the crowd shouting his support for Moore while others heckled and interrupted the candidate's speech. "It makes me wonder who raised Jimmy Kimmel".
"When I say "they" who are 'they?'" he asked the clapping congregation.
Speaking from a pulpit at Magnolia Springs Baptist Church in Theodore, Alabama, Wednesday night, Moore said "they" are promoting a false and malicious narrative in order to keep his conservative Christian views out of politics.
Self-evidently bad person Roy Moore is running for the USA senate seat in the great state of Alabama (we know the state is great because right now they're on the brink of electing a man currently being accused of sexual misconduct against women as young as 14 as their next senator).
Taking issue with the stunt, Moore angrily tweeted at Kimmel, "If you want to mock our Christian values, come down here to Alabama and do it man to man". "They've tried unsuccessfully to change that". They are socialists who want to change our way of life. "They're the Washington establishment.who don't want to lose their power".
"After all the attacks against me, against my family, against the Foundation and against my husband, he will not step down", she said. "It hurts them to think and see what I've been charged with", he said.
Several women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct, with multiple women alleging he pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. "Does that look like the face of a molester?" Literally. Roy Moore is challenging Jimmy Kimmel to a fight.
Moore has repeatedly denied allegations that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl when he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney.
Barbieri's prankster character has been used multiple times on Kimmel's show, usually in field segments where he appears at major events, such as Donald Trump's inauguration, the 2016 Republican National Convention and the presidential debate in Last Vegas a year ago.
Alabama's special election is set for December 12.
