Al Franken, D-Minn., to step down amid reports of misbehavior toward women.

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont says he hopes President Donald Trump considers resigning following Sen.

While Sen. Sanders stated that allegations against powerful politicians and celebrities are troubling, he is also anxious about everyday women in restaurants and offices across the country who face sexual harassment and assault from employers who are not famous. You have a president who, on tape, a tape that everybody in America has seen, acknowledged, basically, that he was assaulting women, and well over a dozen women have made that complaint. So, I hope that maybe the president of the United States might pay attention to what is going on and also think about resigning. Franken groping a sleeping female reporter surfaced, Sen. Franken apologized to some of his accusers while denying several of the allegations, according to Time.

"Moore may be possibly joining the Senate and he has been accused of far worse than what Senator Franken is accused of", King said. Sanders changed his tune along with his Democratic colleagues, calling for Sen.


Franken called out Trump in his remarks, saying "there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office". "It's like a magnet". Grab them by the p***y.

The allegations against Trump have been made by 13 women and range from non-consensual groping and kissing to outright sexual assault. Trump denied all of the allegations and asserted that he never committed the acts he described to Bush.

Asked to comment on Franken's remarks, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "Look, the president addressed the comments back during the campaign".
