Hypocrisy: Donald Trump delights in Al Franken's sexual harassment scandal

President Donald Trump took aim at longtime critic Sen.

Trump has dismissed these claims as "fake news", and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has said that all the women who have accused Trump of sexual harassment are lying.

With the country confronting revelations of sexual impropriety by powerful men in entertainment and politics, Trump's status as someone accused months before the recent wave of news stories is also a complication for the White House.

Her story, which is remarkably similar to the accounts shared by at least six other women who said the former president groped them during photo-ops between 2003 and 2016, is significant, because it is the first time a woman has come forward to accuse Mr Bush of unwanted touching while he was in office.

Franken, who joined the Senate in 2009, apologized to Tweeden on Thursday in two statements and said he would fully cooperate with an ethics investigation.

Bash countered: Why won't Trump simply call for Moore to step aside?

What do you think about the differences between sexual abuse, harassment, and assault allegations and the differences between Democrats and Republicans? Al Franken (D-MN) on Twitter Thursday night over allegations that Franken groped an Los Angeles radio host in 2006, slamming a picture of the act as "really bad" - despite the many allegations of harassment and assault against Trump himself. If Senator Franken should lose his seat, why should Judge Roy Moore and President Trump keep theirs?

Senator Al Franken is the latest public figure accused of sexual misconduct. But while this is very bad and creepy, Maher argues that he doesn't deserve "to be lumped in with Roy Moore, or Kevin Spacey, or Harvey Weinstein. You forcibly kissed me without my consent, grabbed my breasts while I was sleeping and had someone take a photo of you doing it, knowing I would see it later, and be ashamed". In interviews on Thursday and Friday, Tweeden accepted the apology and said on "Good Morning America" that she was not calling for him to step down. America is extremely polarized and many people are now siding with abusers along political party lines.

By weighing in on Franken, Trump potentially invites another round of scrutiny over the past accusations of sexual assault that have been levied against him - a risk that a source told CNN earlier this week was partially behind his decision to not comment on the Moore controversy. The reference was included in a 1995 NY magazine article. 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. McConnell, Moore's establishment nemesis, is a subject of disdain to conservative media outlets such as Breitbart and Trump's most fervent backers, giving Trump reason to stay out of their fray.

Moore won the Republican Senate primary on September 26. "He still firmly believes that", Sanders told reporters on Thursday, noting, "This is a decision people of Alabama need to make, not the President".
