Trump criticizes Franken, remains silent on Roy Moore

Trump criticizes Franken, remains silent on Roy Moore

The Defense Department accidentally retweeted a message calling for President Trump to resign. But Trump eagerly weighed in on Franken, which only underscored his continued silence on Moore - as well as last year's allegations against him.

Leeann Tweeden, now a Los Angeles radio host, on Thursday accused Franken of forcibly kissing and groping her during a 2006 United Services Organizations tour.

Colbert then showed the image, which shows Tweeden asleep on the cargo plane and Franken putting his hands on her breasts.

Trump's campaign was almost derailed after the release of a 2005 tape in which he talked about women in vulgar terms, describing acts of sexual assault, in a taped conversation with Billy Bush, then-host Access Hollywood, that leaked a few weeks before last year's election.

As president and as a celebrity, Trump has frequently injected himself into developments to which he has little connection - from the shooting of Harambe the gorilla to National Football League anthem protests. The survey revealed that 50 percent of likely voters said they would support Democrat Doug Jones, while 42 percent said they would support the accused Judge Roy Moore.

Asked yesterday why the White House said that the allegations against Roy Moore were troubling but that the president himself has faced allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, "I think the president has certainly a lot more insight into what he personally did or didn't do, and he spoke out about that directly during the campaign".

A month before Trump won the 2016 election, a tape surfaced of him discussing groping women. Since then, numerous women have accused Moore of misconduct and assault, mostly when they were teenagers.

Slight rise in Idaho unemployment for October
Pennsylvania's nonfarm jobs count was down 4,300 from September's record high level to 5,973,800 in October. Also, for the first time in years, Louisiana's unemployment rate doesn't rank among the 10 worst states.

Sanders also refused to say whether Trump was pulling his endorsement of the candidate.

"I'm automatically attracted to lovely - I just start kissing them", he said in the audiotape, which surfaced during the campaign. "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.

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.

In a second tweet, Trump said that last week, Franken had been "lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women".

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.

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". She probably got called to the principal's office to take this call. Both had said they believe Moore's accusers.

"Republicans want you to believe that their trickle-down tax break for the rich will pay for itself", said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
