Trump Dumps on Franken

President takes to Twitter to mock Senator accused of sexual harassment

President Donald Trump took to Twitter late Thursday night (Nov. 16) to mock Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.), who issued a long apology earlier in the day following sexual misconduct allegations leveled at him by an anchor and former model who had accompanied him on a USO tour. The President called him "Al Frankenstein"

and called out the liberal Democrat for lecturing others about sexual harassment.

The reference to iconic newswoman Stahl is apparently a reference to a 1995 New York Magazine article in which then-comedian Franken spoke about the possibility of a “Saturday Night Live” skit that would include drugging and raping her. 

The President has been more circumspect about numerous sexual harassment and assault allegations leveled against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore.

The President himself has been accused of sexual misconduct by numerous women, and had to apologize after he was heard on an Access Hollywood tape talking about famous people getting away with groping women.
