Trump goes after Al Franken, but remains silent on Roy Moore

President Donald Trump is displaying selective outrage over allegations of sexual harassment against prominent men in politics, as his own tortured past lingers over his response.

"And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women".

Last month, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the White House's official stance on the sexual assault accusations is that every single one of the women is lying.

Hours before the tweets appeared, Franken moved swiftly to apologize and embrace bipartisan calls for an ethics investigation into his actions.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway offered a different explanation for Trump's silence on Moore, telling Fox News on Friday that, while the story was old news by the time he returned from Asia, the Franken controversy was "brand new".

Trump did not endorse Moore in the primary, spurning the desires of some of his anti-establishment supporters.

An analysis of President Donald Trump's tweets. Al Franken, D-Minn., after the comedian-turned-politician was outed for sexually harassing a woman while she was asleep - and awake - about a decade ago. But while this is bad and creepy, Maher argues that he doesn't deserve "to be lumped in with Roy Moore, or Kevin Spacey, or Harvey Weinstein". Franken, D-Minn., who is accused of having forcibly kissed and groped a radio news anchor a decade ago when entertaining USA troops overseas, as "Al Frankenstien".

She told supporters that Trump actually "owes us a thank you" for taking the media focus off investigations of possible collaboration between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation a year ago. Franken apologized to Tweeden both publicly and in a separate letter sent to her that Tweeden read aloud on The View. America is extremely polarized and many people are now siding with abusers along political party lines.

A "Lesley Stahl tape" Trump mentioned in his second tweet refers to a New York Magazine story about a "Saturday Night Live" writers discussion where Franken suggests a joke about raping Leslie Stahl, a "60 Minutes" correspondent.

Trump could also be asked to testify, although he might have legal grounds to refuse under the separation of powers doctrine, known as "executive priviledge", according to references. McConnell, Moore's establishment nemesis, is a subject of disdain to conservative media outlets such as Breitbart and Trump's most fervent backers, giving Trump reason to stay out of their fray. "Roy Moore spent more time chatting up young girls at the mall than Santa Claus".

The Alabama Senate candidate has denied the allegations of impropriety and has so far resisted calls to withdraw from the race. "He still firmly believes that", Sanders told reporters on Thursday, noting, "This is a decision people of Alabama need to make, not the President".
