Hillary Blasts Trump, Moore for Not Accepting Responsibility on Sexual Misconduct Allegations

On Friday, the president took Sen.

"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?.", Mr Trump tweeted. While touring with the USO in 2006, Franken wrote a sketch where he got to kiss the female emcee, Leeann Tweeden.

Of specifically Senator Gillibrand's recent comments about Bill Clinton that he should have resigned after his affair with Monica Lewinsky, she said, "I don't exactly know what she (Gillibrand) was trying to say".

Ten minutes later, he added: "And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women".

But the #MeToo wave exposing sexual misconduct which began in Hollywood slammed into the USA capital this week, triggering a dizzying slew of allegations, apologies and resignations. Dubbing the Senator "Frankenstein" the President is finding his tweets are getting a mixed reaction. Since then, numerous women have accused Moore of misconduct and assault, mostly when they were teenagers.

Trump has repeatedly dismissed the allegations against him as fake news, most recently telling reporters on October 16: "It's just fake".

President Trump is stirring controversy for a series of tweets aimed at Senator Al Franken. "That's a very big distinction". In October 2016, Trump brushed off a now-infamous 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape, which featured him bragging about grabbing women "by the pussy", as "locker room talk". Both had said they believe Moore's accusers.

But this intervention may pose more political risk for the 71-year-old. "Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither", Clinton told NY radio station WABC. He also called his accusers "horrible, frightful liars".

"A lot of people who voted for him recognized that he was what he was, but wanted a change and so they were willing to go along", theorizes Jessica Leeds, one of the first women to step forward and accuse Trump of groping her, decades ago on an airplane. "I didn't think he'd be as bad as he turned out to be", she said of Trump.

Sanders told reporters Thursday: "Look, the president believes that these allegations are very troubling and should be taken seriously".

On Friday, Sanders pointed out that Trump himself did weigh in on Roy Moore while he was on his foreign trip to Asia - however, that was only to say that he hadn't seen much about the reported allegations.

Meyers then showed various clips of reporters attempting to ask Republican congressmen about the accusations against Moore; in the case of Mo Brooks, he fled a reporter's questions while running down the stairs. "The ALGOP Steering Committee supports Judge Roy Moore as our nominee and trusts the voters as they make the ultimate decision in this crucial race", the party said in a statement.
