Trump criticizes Franken, remains silent on Roy Moore

Hollywood’s #MeToo wave engulfs Washington

Last night, President Donald Trump thought it would be a good idea to comment on yesterday's bombshell revelation that Sen.

More than a dozen allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct were levelled against Trump in the waning days of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Jessica Leeds, who alleges that Trump groped her on a flight in the 1980s, said she's "extremely disappointed" that punishment for Trump has stalled. And he called the women sharing #MeToo stories about sexual assault, harassment and other misconduct "courageous".

Trump even bragged about groping women, kissing them without permission and "grabbing them by the pussy", in an infamous open mic conversation with TV personality Billy Bush.

Unfortunately, the issues of sexual harassment or assault have become politicized.

She said Franken's request to have the Senate ethics panel investigate his sexual misconduct "is the kind of accountability I'm talking about".

Implicit in the Trump approach is his and his aides' confidence that he has absorbed the political damage from his own past, while Democrats, who depend heavily on women voters, may have more to lose now.

Moore, now 70, has also denied any wrongdoing and said he will contest the December 12 poll.

"The President has been clear that those allegations were not truthful", he said.

Earlier on Thursday, the White House said Trump believes the allegations against Moore were "very troubling and should be taken seriously".


"The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words. Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?" read the president's first tweet, sent just after 10 p.m.in Washington. Trump tweeted, misspelling Frankenstein.

Trump was referring to a 1995 NY magazine article quoting Franken joking in the "Saturday Night Live" writers' room about drugging and raping journalist Lesley Stahl.

Franken's alleged misconduct occurred not long after he had moved home to Minnesota from NY, and was already positioning himself to run for Senate in 2008, a race that he narrowly won after a recount.

Franken's accuser, Leeann Tweeden, alleged that the SNL alum forcibly kissed her during a USO tour back in 2006.

But White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump's accusers should not be believed in the same way.

I don't hear that from Roy Moore or Donald Trump. Moore is a Republican. At this point, Bill Maher is ready for his break between seasons, and said as much on last night's Season 15 finale of Real Time. However, he has remained silent on the allegations facing Moore.

Since the Post's report, more people have come forward with accusations against the candidate.

Marc Short, Trump's director of legislative affairs, was eager to move on from the subject while appearing on CNN on Friday. "Roy Moore spent more time chatting up young girls at the mall than Santa Claus".

"The people of Alabama are smart enough to make a decision for themselves", Short said.
