An analysis of President Donald Trump's tweets. The senator's first, briefer apology was derided for implying that she had misremembered the kissing incident. Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?. Trump posted on Twitter Thursday night. Senator Franken is now under fire as a photo of himself groping a sleeping Playboy model turned radio host is going viral.
He chastised the Minnesota Democrat who "just last week ... was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women".
A "Lesley Stahl tape" Trump mentioned in his second tweet refers to a New York Magazine story about a "Saturday Night Live" writers discussion where Franken suggests a joke about raping Leslie Stahl, a "60 Minutes" correspondent.
Despite that, and despite the infamous Access Hollywood tape in which he bragged to TV host Billy Bush about sexually assaulting women, Trump was elected.
While Franken apologized to Tweeden for his conduct on Thursday and welcomed a Senate ethics investigation into his own behavior, Trump was quick to criticize the Democratic senator even though the president has largely avoided strong criticisms or rebuke for other powerful men accused of sexual harassment and assault, most notably-himself.
Radio host accuses Sen.
Many people slammed him for staying silent on the mounting sexual abuse allegations against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has denied any wrongdoing.
Meyers asked Franken his thoughts on Trump's defense that the exchange was just "locker-room banter".
Setting aside the title misspelling and apparent plot misunderstanding of Frankenstein, Trump does bring intimate familiarity on the subject of sexual misconduct.
Earlier Thursday, Franken was accused of sexually assaulting a Los Angeles news personality in 2006.
"The president believes that these allegations are very troubling and should be taken seriously, and he thinks that the people of Alabama should make the decision on who their next senator should be", Sanders told reporters at a briefing.
