Sexual harassment expert weighs in on Al Franken

Sexual harassment expert weighs in on Al Franken

"Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?" the president tweeted.

It is unclear what prompted Mr. Trump to tweet about Mr. Franken. Al Franken, D-Minn., after the comedian-turned-politician was outed for sexually harassing a woman while she was asleep - and awake - about a decade ago.

It is hard to fathom that someone with the morals of a shark like Donald Trump is taking a fiendish delight in the precipitous downfall of Sen. The incident took place in 2006 before Franken won the Minnesota Senate seat and during a U.S.O. tour through the Middle East. Tweeden shared her story with the #MeToo hashtag that is used to signify sexual abuse, assault, harassment, or rape.

In a follow-up tweet, the real estate mogul added, "And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women".

Meyers asked Franken his thoughts on Trump's defense that the exchange was just "locker-room banter".

President Trump, who himself has been caught on tape disparaging women and has a slew of sexual harassment allegations, dove right in to attack Senator Franken.

Moore has dismissing calls from GOP leaders to end his Senate campaign after The Washington Post reported allegations that he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32.

Trump appeared to reference a quote from a 1995 New York Magazine article in which Franken, who wrote comedy sketches at the time, reportedly floated a crude scene involving CBS reporter 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 went on to suggest that maybe Trump worked out with Roger Ailes, the late founder of Fox News accused of sexually harassing at least seven female employees, among them Fox & Friends anchor Gretchen Carlson. "I respect women. I don't respect men who don't".

Franken released an apology statement and agreed to fully cooperate with an ethics committee investigation. "And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed", he said.
