Trump Tweets: Slams Sen. Franken over sexual harassment photo


President Trump shot out a two-part Twitter statement Thursday night, in response to new allegations of sexual misconduct against Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.).

TV host and sports broadcaster Leeann Tweeden came forward on Thursday to accuse Franken of kissing and groping her without her consent in December 2006, while she and Franken, then a comedian, were on a tour to entertain military troops.

Tweeden shared a photo that was taken without her knowledge while she was sleeping, to back up her claim. President Trump tweeted about the photo.

“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? And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?” President Trump tweeted.

Trump’s reference to Lesley Stahl was referring to a newly-uncovered article about a New York Magazine description of a Saturday Night Live writers’ meeting, in which Franken reportedly stated, “I give the pills to Leslie Stahl. Then when Leslie is passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her. Or ‘That’s why you never see Lesley until February. Or, ‘When she passes out. I put her in various positions and take pictures of her.’ ”
