He chastised the Minnesota Democrat who "just last week ... was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women".

Former model and performer Leeann Tweeden told the world Thursday of how Franken allegedly gave her an unwanted kiss and groped her while she slept on a flight back from a USO tour in 2006. "I think that at this point we believe that it's up to the people of Alabama to make a decision". Trump has denied the assault allegations and accused the women of lying. She did not call on Moore to leave the race.

President Trump just can't help himself.

While Trump's anti-Franken tweets reflect his life-long penchant to counter-attack enemies, they also opened the door for the president's critics to revive the many sexual misconduct allegations against him.

The differing approaches favored by McConnell and the White House underscore the tension Washington Republicans face as the Alabama election nears.

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

Despite his later endorsement of Moore, White House officials pointed to Trump's original support for odd on Friday as they defended his decision to remain on the sidelines.

When pressed if that means Moore should remain in the race, Sanders referenced an earlier comment made following the first allegations against the former State Supreme Court Chief Justice.

When asked by reporters on Friday the difference between the allegations against Trump and those against Franken, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders replied: "Senator Franken has admitted wrongdoing and the president hasn't".

Turns Out It Pays to Be Fired for Flipping Off Trump's Motorcade
The US president was making his 96th visit to one of his properties when Briskman saw red and flipped him the finger. Briskman told ABC News that she was sacked and escorted out of the office for violating the firm's code of conduct.

"It's been simmering on the stove with the lid on, like a pressure cooker", she said.

While disaster consumed Franken, one of his colleagues, New Jersey Sen.

In yet another twist in the sexual abuse saga embroiling the USA, former U.S. president George H.W. Bush is facing new allegations from a MI woman who said he touched her inappropriately while he was in office at an event in April 1992, CNN reported on Thursday.

"The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words".

"I dont hear that from Roy Moore or Donald Trump". But the strike against Franken indicated a more political rationale.

Many Democrats have come out saying Al Franken should step down and that his behavior is unacceptable as the climate towards sexual harassment, even those that are decades old and from a culture when it was considered normal or flirtatious behavior to grope women without their consent, can cost someone their job.

Hours before the tweets appeared, Franken moved swiftly to apologize and embrace bipartisan calls for an ethics investigation into his actions.

When asked what they would tell Trump if he were seated next to them, Bill Clinton said Trump should, "stop seeking enemies and look for people to work with".
