Trump takes a risk by wading into debate over sexual misconduct

Al Franken with Hillary Clinton

When asked earlier about the difference between Trump and Sen.

"The President has admitted to wrongdoing", Hayes said.

"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?"

In Franken, "the president basically had a free shot on goal" to "remind people that Democrats have some serious problems on their end", the ally said.

The broadcaster and also a former model, Ms Leeann Tweeden, also accused Mr Franken, a former comedian, of kissing her without her consent.

I can understand why the Pussy Grabber-in-chief has remained silent when it comes to the egregious behavior of Moore, after all more than a dozen women accused Trump of sexual harassment and misconduct during the 2016 presidential election.

The reference to Stahl was to a NY magazine article in which Franken talked about a "Saturday Night Live" skit. "I don't hear that from Roy Moore or Donald Trump". Now he is betting that in this highly partisan environment, he is free to weigh in on controversies involving other men - particularly if they're Democrats like Franken and the now-deposed movie producer Harvey Weinstein, the party donor whose actions spurred the national discussion of sexual harassment.

One of the most recent and high-profile cases of sexual misconduct in Congress involved the former Republican speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, who pleaded guilty in 2015 to making illegal payments to hush up his molestation of teenage boys.

As for the allegations against Moore, Sanders said Trump finds them "very troubling". Trump tweeted. "And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women". "Asked directly if she believed Mr. Clinton should have stepped down at the time, Ms. Gillibrand took a long pause and said, 'Yes, I think that is the appropriate response, '" the New York Times reports.

Maher called the claims against Franken "very disturbing" and joked, "I was so shaken I called Bill Cosby to see if he had anything to calm me down".

Moore has strenuously denied the allegations and claimed all are lying, even though he wrote a personal "love" note to one in her high school year book. Asked later by reporters about Moore, Trump said, "I'll stick with statement for now, but I'll have further comment as we go down the road".

Noah continued: "This story is bad on its own but it's especially bad in the context of the week we've been having which, until today, was dominated by the man most wanted by mall cops, Roy Moore, the Alabama senate candidate who is facing multiple allegations, including sexual harassment, sexual assault and misconduct with underaged girls".

She added, "And since then, our press secretary has spoken on behalf of the president by saying that he believes the people of Alabama will sort out what to do with Roy Moore and with that election".
