US Senator Al Franken accused of sexual harassment

ALGOP and Roy Moore

"The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words", Trump tweeted. Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?

On Thursday morning, broadcaster Leeann Tweeden published a story accusing Franken of forcibly kissing and groping her during a 2006 USO tour the two performed in together.

But the U.S. president appeared unwilling to pass up an opportunity to attack a Democrat who has been hyper-critical of his conduct as president.

Franken released a second apology, after many viewed his initial apology as incomplete and lackluster, and he has requested a Senate ethics investigation into his actions.

Franken is also on the judiciary committee, which is among those looking into Russia's role in the 2016 election.

President Trump has not weighed in on the storm surrounding Mr. Moore, whose nativist, grievance-fueled conservative populism has much in common with the president's own.

After Making 'Controversial' Comments, Apple's VP of Diversity to Leave Company
Apple's first VP of diversity and inclusion has resigned and will be leaving at the end of the year, TechCrunch reported . Still, it's been hard for Apple and its peers to show significant percentage increases in diversifying its employee base.

But this intervention may pose more political risk for the 71-year-old. Critics seized on the moment to bring up the infamous Access Hollywood recording that captured Trump in 2005 bragging about forcibly grabbing a woman's "pussy".

But the Alabama GOP said it stands by Moore, and '"trusts the voters" to make the right decision in the race.

Earlier on Thursday, the White House said Trump believes the allegations against Moore were "very troubling and should be taken seriously".

When the allegations first surfaced, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement on behalf of the President that Moore should drop out if the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him are true, but Trump, himself, has declined to comment further and ignored several shouted questions from reporters when asked whether Moore should drop out of the race.

Among Alabama Republicans, 88 percent said they had either a strongly or somewhat favorable view of Trump while only17 percent said the same about former President Obama.

"I think it's pretty sad that anybody would put partisan politics over the good of the state and the good of the country", said Jones. The numbers were flipped among Democrats - 7 percent said they had either a strongly favorable or somewhat favorable opinion of Trump compared to 91 percent who said the same about Obama.
