'Picture is really bad': Trump hits out at Democrat accused of groping

Senator Al Franken is facing an ethics investigation after apologizing for sexually inappropriate behavior with a radio host

Trump went on television and flatly read an apology for his words, then zealously shifted into offense. Later, when more than a dozen women accused him of sexual misconduct, including unwanted physical contact, he threatened to sue his accusers.

"For Trump and his press secretary to continue to push the false agenda that the women are liars and continue to so cavalierly defame private citizens is outrageous and improper", Stoynoff said. Dubbing the Senator "Frankenstein" the President is finding his tweets are getting a mixed reaction.

In a pair of tweets Thursday night, Trump spotlighted the accusations against Franken, saying the photo "speaks a thousand words". She relived her harrowing experience with Franken for KABC.

"I think that's a very clear distinction", she added.

"It's disturbing that many of Trump's diehard supporters are so stubborn", Mindy McGillivray, who says Trump groped her while she was attending a concert at Mar-a-Lago in 2003, told People.

"I think that what we've said is that Roy Moore's, so far, explanations have not been satisfactory", Short said, before returning to his previous point: "But at the same time, Dana, what we expect is what we have said: We campaigned against him". Plus with Al Franken, we're talking about one incident.

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. Al Franken (D-MN) for alleged sexual misconduct.

Until his late-night tweet, Trump did not inject himself into every part of the Washington drama.

'Picture is really bad': Trump hits out at Democrat accused of groping

Asked about what looks like selective outrage, White House officials said Trump (and Moore) deny the allegations against them, calling them politically motivated; Franken acknowledged the claims of a woman who produced photographic evidence.

Los Angeles radio anchor Leeann Tweeden said that during a USO trip to the Middle East and Afghanistan in 2006 Franken forced his tongue in her mouth during a rehearsal for a skit and then groped her while she was sleeping during a flight home - a moment that was captured in a photograph.

The reference to Stahl was to a NY magazine article in which Franken talked about a "Saturday Night Live" skit.

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.

Even as he savored his liberty, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called on the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate the "numerous" federal felony charges on which Menendez was indicted.

Sanders said Trump believed Moore should step aside if the allegations are true, but she would not say what the president would take as proof.

"He's anxious about the conversation moving to his past accusers", the Republican familiar with the matter said, noting that the President believes his accusers were unfair and some of Moore's may be, too.
