Trump Remains Silent On Moore, Rips Al “Frankenstien”

CNBC reports:

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.

Trump moved quickly Thursday to condemn accusations against Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken as “really bad,” but he has remained conspicuously silent on the more serious claims leveled against Roy Moore, the Republican in Alabama’s special Senate race who faces allegations he sexually assaulted teenage girls decades ago.

Trump has repeatedly declined to follow Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan in calling on Moore to quit the race. Both had said they believe Moore’s accusers.

  • Tawreos

    Would Trump care to tell us about the pussies he grabbed that he wasn’t recorded talking about?

    • Todd20036

      Not to mention the anti Semitism in that little tweet of his.

    • TrueWords

      Trump was wrong in what he did

      Al was wrong in what he did

      Kevin was wrong in what he did

      Harvey was wrong in what he did

      Roy was wrong in what he did

      These prior sexual misconduct/sexual assault events will continue to surface (because they DID happen) and people will continue to be polarized about them in various ways…

      However one thing I truly wish that the law was on the side of the victims in regards to the Statutes of Limitations…so these individuals could be tried in court as well as the court of public opinion

      • MusicBear88

        All of them were wrong in some way. That does not make what Al Franken did or may have done an analogue to what Roy Moore or Donald Trump did.

        • TrueWords

          The victims have to decide the weight of these things…

          I WILL NOT lessen ANYONE’S pain and suffering and feelings because of my dislike of Trump and Roy Moore and my general like of Al Franken…and NO ONE else should either

      • DaveMiller135

        The statute of limitations should be expanded to begin running when the victim is a legal adult, and run 10 or 15 years after that.

        • JCF

          At least that long. You know who run out of fucks to give? Grandmothers. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that it is now, as grandmothers, that Moore’s victims are coming forward.

  • Boreal
    • Kissmagrits

      This makes me pine for the good old days when a ’76 Playboy interview revealed Jimmy Carter admitting to “having lust in his heart”. There was so much less adolescent drooling in politics before the ascendancy of vicious right wing Christianist thugs. Thank you, Jerry Falwell!

  • Stogiebear

    Pussy Grabber in Chief says what?

    • Cipher

      “I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”

  • Daveed_WOW

    Franken made the mistake of abusing an adult woman. If he had abused a woman his daughter’s age, it would be a different story. Proof that they have hillbillies on Park Avenue.

  • Gustav2

    Ummmm, where is your resignation, POTUS?

  • hdtex
  • Rebecca Gardner
  • gaycuckhubby

    Sigh… I don’t want to do this for the next three years.

    • Leo

      Don’t worry, we will.

  • Bluto
  • tbj5

    Because Trump wants to protect his fellow pedophile.

  • gaycuckhubby

    Even something as vile as harassment and sexual abuse has levels and layers. What Roy Moore did is infinitely worse than what Franken is alleged to have done. To remain silent about Moores action while attacking Franken is political, tribal, and reprehensible. So Trump in a nutshell

    • Rambie

      This is how you know the Franken allegation is a deflection.

    • SFBruce

      Not to mention ignoring that big ole plie of skeletons in little Donnie’s own closet. As far as I know, there’s only this single accuser against Franken, while little Donnie has racked up 20. Franken has publically acknowledged and apologized for what he did, while Donnie went on TV and bragged about grabbing all the pussy he wants.

      • Steverino

        Franken apologized immediately, and instantly welcomed an investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee. These aren’t the actions of somebody with something to hide. Trump and Moore, on the other hand, not only don’t apologize or even acknowledge their abuse, but instead double-down on the abuse by blaming and attacking the victims, the media, and practically everybody but themselves. Franken supporters are disappointed, but Trump and Moore supporters remain enthusiastic. And this doesn’t even begin to get into the false equivalency and lack of proportion in making comparisons of these allegations.

        • Nowhereman

          And that’s the gist of it. Al Franken is ashamed of what he did. Roy Moore and his follower’s think that what Roy did was just a godly man being godly, and that women have no right to complain.

        • eyefidelity

          Senator Franken should offer to resign as soon as President Trump does.

      • Nowhereman

        And he then went out and bragged that he could shoot someone to death on 5th Ave and still get elected.

    • JCF

      …at least what Franken is alleged to have done, to this point. Moore is UNDENIABLY worse.

  • Michael R

    This is just exhausting .

  • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

    “Former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone appeared to know there were sexual misconduct allegations involving Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) hours before they became public.

    Stone has been banned from Twitter, but at 1 a.m. on Thursday morning an account connected to him tweeted a quote from the Republican political operative.

    “Roger Stone says it’s Al Franken’s ‘time in the barrel’. Franken next in long list of Democrats to be accused of ‘grabby’ behavior,” read the tweet from Enter the Stone Zone.”

    http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/360726-stone-appeared-to-know-franken-allegation-was-coming

    I’ve read on other sites that Russian bots are amplifying comments to help promote the scandal. So maybe the administration and its surrogates are continuing to conspire with Russia?

    • Tawreos

      Maybe? We have never had any indication that they have ever stopped colluding with Russia.

    • Leo

      The Russian bots don’t exactly need the administration’s help. NOW that is. Just follow what they’re pushing on Hamilton68’s site and it’s pretty obvious they know what topic to latch onto. Before this it was Takei and before that it was Keurig.

    • Bluto
      • Palmer

        That is singlarly disturbing.

        • David L. Caster

          In multiple dimensions.

    • Reality.Bites

      Maybe?

    • Keith D Plane

      I believe this is a hit job on Franken. She has been on haanitys show, is a shitstain supporter and the photographer claims this photo was staged and she was in on it. Now you have stone whipping up the frenzy before it hits the news and then shitstain doin his Twitter shit. Something stinks here

      • DreadPikathulhu

        The GOP is going to ride whataboutism and bothsiderism into the 2018 elections.

        • Steverino

          Indeed. I hereby request the critical-thinking powers-that-be to include “whataboutism” and “bothsiderism” in the official list of logical fallacies. Each one is a treasure-trove of false equivalencies and lack of proportion.

      • Bad Tom

        I am beginning to think so too.

        She has changed her story. Now she says the PHOTO ITSELF was groping.

        No. It isn’t. You can see that by looking at it.

        Also, now she says that “everyone told her” that Franken would make sure she never worked again.

        Let’s hear from some of those contemporaneous witnesses, LIKE WE HAVE FROM ROY MOORE’S CASE.

  • CB

    Don’t want to be an apologist but it seems like there should be a distinction between an adolescent prank, however stupid, and what drumpf and Moore do and say. While it’s all wrong, IMO, and tasteless, I don’t think Franken has a history of abuse and treating women abusively.

    • SFBruce

      It seems to me that if there are others, they’re certainly more likely to come forward now. Time will tell. Franken has been a good senator, so I hope he can stay.

  • Leo

    A lot of Moore defenders brought up Bill in a radio segment I was listening to (wasn’t right-wing). I was coming of age in that era so I don’t remember much. Hayes wants a Clinton reckoning on the left and Gillibrand says recently that he should’ve stepped down.

    Juanita keeps saying on Fox she was raped even though she never said that under oath and I don’t know about the others Trump invited to that debate. Does anyone have the energy this morning to give me their thoughts (because I’ve read a ton of articles without going down the conspiracy rabbit hole and still have a headache)?

  • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

    I saw Franken’s accuser on CNN last night (Jake Tapper’s show). I have to admit she seemed credible and also not interested in getting Franken to resign. Surprisingly for a TV personality, she was rather inarticulate.

  • BeaverTales

    OT: If Democrats use what is perceived as a double standard, I think it will hurt us with independents.

    Kirsten Gillibrand says Bill Clinton should have resigned, as old allegations resurface.

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after having a relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, the most prominent liberal to weigh in as the issue has moved from conservative media to a wider chorus of voices in recent days.

    Gillibrand said she thought it would have been “the appropriate response,” when asked if Clinton should have stepped down by a reporter. The comments were published Thursday by the New York Times.

    Attention on Clinton’s treatment of women — most of the allegations well over 20 years old — was resurrected by some conservative media outlets during the presidential campaign after the “Access Hollywood” tape emerged showing Donald Trump bragging about grabbing women. Trump later brought some of Clinton’s accusers to a presidential debate.

    In recent weeks, unreported sexual misconduct and harassment allegations have been brought against figures in Hollywood, media, technology and politics, on all sides of the political spectrum.

    • Leo

      Hayes brought up the notion about a week prior but it didn’t seem to get any traction. Bill will be the right’s #1 whataboutism default whenever the topic comes up the next 3 years and we can’t pretend it won’t.

    • gaycuckhubby

      BTW… before everyone attacks Gillibrand, Rachel Maddow agrees…
       “I think Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency because of his sexual impropriety with an intern. … I think that’s not a popular view, but because it was somebody who was in his employ — it was wrong enough that it was an affront to his presidency.

      • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

        She was a White House intern right? The President does not directly hire or employ interns?

        • Leo

          I’m a little confused. I was under the impression Gillibrand’s wanting him to have stepped down was a response to the combination of accusations, not just Monica’s.

          • gaycuckhubby

            It was

          • Leo

            Well there you go. I agree with her.

          • gaycuckhubby

            Me too

          • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

            If its based on other accusations, then I could potentially agree, but Monica should not be part of it.

          • Dazzer

            It’s exceedingly weird that so many Americans want to believe accusations that have not been tried in court rather than any hard evidence.

            I sort of understand The Crucible now.

          • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

            Actually just read the article, and it only refers to Monica

            WASHINGTON — Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Democrat of New York, who holds Hillary Clinton’s former seat, said on Thursday that Bill Clinton should have resigned the presidency after his inappropriate relationship with an intern came to light nearly 20 years ago.

          • Leo

            Hmm. Hmmm. Withholding comment. For now.

          • BeaverTales

            It’s interesting to read the differences in how this is being covered by WaPo and NYTimes.

          • gaycuckhubby

            I was wrong in my earlier comment. I misread. I thought it was about the multitude of accusations.
            I still feel he should have resigned.

        • gaycuckhubby

          That’s reaching

        • BeaverTales

          Monica from the anthropological perspective:
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDaHPi8HOGA

          • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

            That’s unnecessary

          • BeaverTales

            Is it necessary we avoid discussions of evolution and human nature?

            i thought the topic was ‘normal’ behavior.

          • DoctorDJ

            “Do you smoke after sex?”

            “I don’t know. I’ve never looked.”

          • yes b’y
        • Reality.Bites

          Neither does the CEO of a large company, but it’s improper for them to have a sexual relationship with an intern.

          • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

            Fair enough. But Clinton did not pressure her or use his position. She initiated.

          • Reality.Bites

            Don’t get me wrong. I’m not comparing it to what Moore or Trump did.

            And I’m not trying to rewrite history either. I think there’s as little point in discussing Clinton’s past as there is in discussing George H.W. Bush’s nonconsensual touching of women post presidency.

            One can condemn Moore without having to have a perfect record of always saying or doing the right thing in a contemporary context even decades ago.

            Because there is and never was a time in his life when Moore committed a single, decent, moral act.

            Comparing him to Clinton is like pointing out that both Hitler and PETA were vegetarian. You don’t have to like PETA to realize there’s no place for using their vegetarian beliefs to whitewash Hitler, or use Hitler to attack PETA.

          • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

            Great point

          • gaycuckhubby

            Monica admits it was a consensual affair she has never suggested otherwise. But she feels that she was abused by Clinton in the aftermath.
            The power imbalance will always be problematic but I think gillibrand issue with Bill Clinton goes beyond just that. It certainly does for me.

          • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

            On that basis you have a point, but to me, she was abused by the media and as a pawn by the right even more.

        • JCF

          See re “The Buck Stops Here” (President’s Desk)

      • Joe Maynard

        It’s worth noting that Clinton was impeached. The motion to impeach passed the House. The Senate did not convict. The vote in the Senate was not particularly close though it was strongly partisan.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_of_Bill_Clinton

        You can argue about the wisdom of those representatives and senators. But contemporary judgement is the only kind that can change anything, so, imperfect though it may be, it’s the least-bad we’ve got.

        According to contemporary judgement, Clinton did not deserve to lose office over the affair (the impeachment charge of abuse of power was not sustained in the House.)

      • JCF

        One can simultaneously think—especially in hindsight—that Bill Clinton should have resigned, AND that the Rethugs were beyond f*cked up to have impeached him for it (again, w/ the benefit of hindsight, when we know Just.How.Many.Of.Them were doing the same or WORSE)

    • SkokieGuy [ChicagoAdjacentGuy]

      “Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Thursday that Bill Clinton should
      have resigned the presidency after having a relationship with White
      House intern Monica Lewinsky…”

      A consensual relationship that was not between an employee and her direct supervisor? A relationship that Monica initiated?

      Kirsten, I was a fan and thought you could potentially be a Presidential candidate yourself, but I have now changed my opinion to Fuck You.

    • LaChatSayWha

      She should stop worrying about the President who left office 20 years ago and start focusing on the predator occupying the Oval Office today. The one who conspired with a foreign country, who has threatened the victims of assault he admits & pisses on our democracy, the rule of law and our lives every.fucking.minute.of.every.day.

      Hillary and the rest of us have been paying for Bill’s blow job for nearly 20 years. These assholes need to pass by the easy grandstanding and take on the destructive forces currently making a mockery of integrity, democracy and truth. Yeah, it’s going to be much more brutal to take down Dump & his cabal than piling on Bill/Hillary again, but that’s the fight she and her colleagues chose when they ran for office.

      • BeaverTales

        Independents don’t care about any of this. The Dem base just needs to own up to the fact that Bill Clinton committed the same behavior that we’re asking Trump and Moore to answer for. We can’t behave like the same standards didn’t apply.

  • BartmanLA

    Trying to posture what occurred with Sen Franken as “worse” than what Trump, Moore and others have been accused of with MULTIPLE women is not only disingenuous but is obvious in it’s effort to deflect from virtually everything Trump and his supporters have done since he took office. To blatantly insult and mangle Sen Franken’s name is childish, petty and beneath the office of President, oh wait, I forgot Trump has utterly destroyed the prestige and decorum of such a respected political position. Truly tragic that the United States has devolved into nothing more than tabloid headlines on a daily basis. All the while, there are millions of citizens that need to be heard and helped through some of the most traumatic times in this nation’s history.

    • SFBruce

      And if his supporters buy this latest pile of crap, which seems to be what they do, they’re even more deplorable than I thought.

    • wmforr

      So far there is only one person that Trump is afraid of insulting, as he said last week, his puppet master.

  • Harveyrabbit

    The media (& Pooty bots) are gonna erase/ignore Dumpy’s sex crimes in favor of re-hashing for the billionth time everything about Bill Clinton. They’re already doing it.

  • Scoot

    To be fair, my phone also autocorrects Franken to Frankenstein. The toilet tweeter—first of all not well known for his reading comprehension or proof reading skills—probably didn’t intend to call him Frankenstein at first but then probably considered it high comedy once he saw it.

  • gaycuckhubby

    Franklin’s actions would get you a write up at work and maybe a sexual harassment course. Roy Moore’s actions results in jail time and being added on a sex offenders list. A bit of a difference.

    • fuow

      No, he went too far. I wish he hadn’t but sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, he must resign or everything we have been saying about women and children is just as hollow as the mother-fucking christers’ pretend ‘morality’.

      • Dazzer

        When did Franken abuse a kid?

        And have you ever thought of waiting until all the evidence is out there fore rushing to judgment?

        • fuow

          Oh, gosh. The evidence and admission are already there. And no, he didn’t abuse a kid. Try reading what I wrote.

          • Dazzer

            I did read what you wrote.

            You’re making no sense whatsoever. You’re arguing for a moral high ground that has been displayed by the Democrats time and again.

            Franken has insisted on an enquiry into his behaviour.

            How about waiting for that before dashing into rash action?

          • fuow

            Because the admission and proof are already there and he has already acknowledged them. There’s no need for ‘enquiry’ or commissions or anything else which would be justified when the matter is unclear.
            He resigns, Governor Dayton appoints a social Democrat and the matter is settled. The harm Franken did, sadly, not.

          • Dazzer

            Nice to know you’re judge and jury here.

            Franken has subjected himself to the Ethics Committee for investigation.

            It’s probably best to see what happens there.

            Your denunciations of Franken without context and solid evidence are shrill – and are probably best ignored.

          • fuow

        • fuow

          I know – still, if we mean our words, then action must follow.
          It puts us in a far, far better place to decry the rethuglican and mother-fucking christers’ depravations, too when we make it clear that we really mean it.

          • Dazzer

            It’s already been made clear via Wiener et al.

            Who ever thought it would? The mother-fucking christers and rethugs are not going to stop being predators.

    And a Bill Clinton thought: Why didn’t Bill just say, “I will resign the presidency for this extramarital sexual activity – providing that every member of Congress who has engaged in extramarital sexual activity does the same.”

      Interesting. Usually the man on the right is cropped out. Perhaps he could add background on this puerile prank.shot.
      nypost says the photographer may have been Franken’s brother Owen and reports Owen’s denial.. https://nypost.com/2017/11/16/al-frankens-brother-may-have-snapped-infamous-groping-pic/

      Gosh matt. No one hating me yet. Something is obviously wrong with moderation here.
      Maybe you should send your little synchophants here to warn everyone what a terrible person I am!

      What a horrible forum. It’s incestual. And all the previously banned alties and racists! 😄😄

      You either know ode2joy is Octoburn and don’t care, or are lying for Octoburn so he can post, or you’re just ignorant generally.

      All adds up to bad and dishonest moderating.

    • Kudzu

      Here it is right here Matt. You should listen to calamari more often. Like me, most honest and ACCURATE poster on the sun.

      Calamari
      Posted 19 hours ago (edited)
      I think you should talk more about the topic and perhaps less about me.

      I can’t report to the mods or I will get banned, and I can’t return your comments in kind or I will get banned.

      So I’m pretty helpless, and thus your behavior is just bullying.

      I’d rather discuss the topic.

      That is the Baltimore sun talk forums and YOUR MODERATING in a nutshell.

      Recuse yourself! Drain the swamp!

      Wkdwzd says:
      You clearly have a problem with Calamari, it would be better if we didn’t all have to suffer it.

      And YOU matt let your mode pets insult and ridicule calamari! Squid! All kinds of insults. It reminds me how you used to let them pile up on me and make fun of me and then you’d ignore my reports.
      😡😡
      All calamari wanted, like me, WAS FOR YOU TO DO YOUR JOB AND MODERATE!

      I think you wanted a board full the losers you prefer. Like kudzu.

      Something wrong over there.

    Again verifies his lack of education. He cannot even spell Frankenstein correctly. It is E I, not I E.

      Except after C
      and when sounding as A
      As in neighbor and ASSHOLE.

      • rednekokie

        Tell that to the Steinway piano company, and to the many Jewish people in the US with “stein” in their name.

        • Ben in Oakland

          In jewish. It was a joke.

          • rednekokie

            Good — hee hee — I always enjoy a good joke — even when it’s on me.

    • LaChatSayWha

      Apparently the RWNJ press frequently refers to Sen. Franken as “Frankenstien” b/c it’s a familiar anti-Semitic dog whistle for the racists. Because of course. And because of course Donnie Rapealot always chooses to be as vile as possible.

  • SFBruce

    Franken shouldn’t have done what he did, but, unlike others he did have the decency to offer what sounds to me like a real apology, and his victim agrees. Roy Moore has accused one of his alleged victims of forgery, and offered no defense of the several others. And there’s that pervert who currently occupies the White House who actually bragged about “being able to get away with anything” with women because he’s famous. According to the New Yorker, little Donnie has had 20 women accuse him of sexual improprieties, more than Franken and Moore combined. There’s a world of difference between what Franken has done, and what Donnie admits to, and he still has the nerve to claim moral superiority. Excuse me while I go take a very long shower.

    • worstcultever

      Dumpy obviously thinks he’s untouchable. And thus far, it would seem he’s sadly right.

      • thatotherjean

        Mueller is still out there, working. As my sainted grandmother used to say, “The Good Lord said that “it came to pass”. He never said that it came to stay.”

    • bzrd

      Just what did Franken do? Sick humor has been going on for years. There were others on the plane and the photographer who have chosen to stay out of the mess. It’s possible the victim was in on the staging of the photo so, until we know for sure, this incident can’t be compared to others especially Moore or the Resident Nazi’s behavior which was non consensual.

  • Jefe5084

    Disheartening that 40 % of eligible voters believe his delusions and grand standing. Plus the BS from his crime family. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/56d4f3efa74f49166dd32c04906ec45c3661c8062995eac6b419db24dc2b0f71.jpg

    In the long tradition of Presidents hurling schoolyard insults …

  • Lee Grupsmith-Pedersen

    Another “presidential” half-witticism there? I still refuse to get used to this.

  • JT

    Where are your fucking tax returns, asshole? Why aren’t you in prison for treason, dipshit?

  • andrew

    This Tweet brought to you by the “grab them by the pussy” POTUS.

  • kareemachan

    The Pussymeister sez what?

  • RainbowPhoenix

    Pussy-grabber says what?

    • Sashineb

      Yeah, what did President Grab M. By-the-Pussy say about putting hands where???

    • Ben in Oakland

      I did t see your comment when I wrote mine. Dammit.

  • Ben in Oakland

    Grabby McPussy says WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!?

  • JWC

    Its. totally wrong in either cae but One wear an “R” and the other has a “D”

    • -M-

      Even wrong has degrees though.

      Franken’s picture is “Dude what is wrong with you? That’s nothing to joke about.”

      While Trump and Moore perv on minors and children and physically assault people.

  • Megrim Twist

    Fuck off, rapist.

    • iambu

      Such a widely applicable sentiment these days…

  • iambu

    I hate to piss on anyone’s parade, but I was texting a friend yesterday about Franken, and iPhones autocorrect Franken to Frankenstein, so I made the same mistake.

    HOWEVER, I still choose to believe that trump think’s Al Franken is literally Frankenstein’s monster and that makes a secret service member check under the bed for him before he goes to sleep every night.

    • -M-

      Does your iPhone misspell Frankenstein, like Covfefe Commander’s?

      • iambu

        *facepalm* lol I actually didn’t notice the misspelling…wow…I…goddamnit…

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • Professor Barnhardt
  • Nowhereman

    My gawd. Does his grade school playground name calling shit really work in the business world? MOST EMBARRASSING S0-CALLED PRESIDENT EVER!

  • Well, Al Franken did do a bad thing to an adult with is definitely terrible behavior. However, he’s never fostered the idea that p*ssy grabbing teens is not perverted like some president the KGB elected I know.

  • JCF
  • DonnaLee

    Birds of a feather…pedophiles sticking together.

  • Robincho

    Somebody can’t spell Frankenstein…

  • BillyDee4

    The headline right now on onenewsnow.com, a fundie fake news site (they think it’s real news) says: NO BROAD CALLS FOR FRANKEN TO RESIGN. I hope they weren’t trying to be funny.

  • wmforr

    Yeah, how could you possibly respect a loser who apologizes and says he will face the consequences? A REAL MAN would attack the accuser and threaten to sue her and say she was paid by his political opponents.
