WASHINGTON — President Donald J. Trump, who was famously caught on tape bragging about grabbing women “by the pussy,” took to Twitter to attack Democratic Sen. Al Franken over sexual assault allegations just hours after they were first made, while continuing to remain silent on mounting sexual assault allegations made against GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore.
The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words. Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps? …..

On Thursday, sports commentator Leeann Tweeden wrote in a blog post that during a USO tour in 2006, Franken forcibly kissed her without her consent as part of a rehearsal for a USO skit.
Franken also had someone take a photograph of him reaching for her breasts while she was seated and sleeping, on a return flight, in her flak jacket and helmet.
Franken hasn’t tried to deny the charges or avoid them, and has since issued an apology. Tweeden has “accepted the apology.”
