Why, he isn't Barack Hussein Obama? Someone who should never have put his behind in a chair in the Oval Office. One who never had a job, now never needs a job. He just can't keep his mouth shut.

No, he's not giving up his voice. He will forever say inappropriate things to women before grabbing their privates!

He's not giving up his voice, how else can you threaten women sexually without first expressing it?

Franken falls on his sword for the good of the party.
As a heterosexual white male, the Democrats have no use for him.

After decades of Democrat women encouraging the asinine behavior and politic of Franken, it is disgusting the way they have suddenly turned on him, refusing their own invitations and pig behavior, including slaughtering 58 Million babies for their lusts. Franken is perfectly correct in saying some of the claims are false and others distorted. The lust for political advantage and the fairy tale concept the false accusations will bring them lasting political power and domination over males is buffoonery. The accusers are generally a bunch of women who've distanced themselves so much from the natural state of the female and have denied themselves sexual fulfillment for so long, that they are incapable of anything other than destroying families and children because of their pampered hatreds and angers.

The picture of Al Franken groping a sleeping Leeann Tweeden's breasts was obviously a posed picture intended to be funny and not sexual titillation. Either there was someone else in the room taking the picture or Franken set up the camera himself. How did Leeann get a copy of the picture? The purpose of the picture was obviously just the picture itself and not a real grope.

Al Franken said about the picture with Leeann Tweeden...

"I don't know what was in my head but that it doesn't matter. There's no excuse, I look at it now and I feel disgusted with myself. It isn't funny. It's completely inappropriate."

Unlike Trump or Roy Moore Franken had the common decency to own up to his transgression not just denigrate his accuser as a liar.

He's no saint but he has never been accused of being a pedophile and has never been recorded bragging about his ability to grope women because of his celebrity.

I don't know if you're demented or just plain dumb. Obama was one of the great presidents. Trump proves that an orangutan can be elected president.
