Two days after President Donald Trump drew criticism from lawmakers in his own party for making fun of Christine Blasey Ford at a rally, he went after former Minnesota lawmaker Al Franken for resigning from the Senate after he was accused of sexual misconduct.

At a rally stop Thursday night in Rochester, Minnesota, Trump began talking about the comedian-turned-politician after criticizing Sen. Tina Smith (D-Minn.). “She took a wacky guy’s place,” he said, adding later, “Boy, did he fold up like a wet rag, huh? Man, he was gone so fast. He was gone so fast, I don’t want to mention Al Franken’s name, okay, so I won’t mention it,” he said to boos in the crowd.

Added Trump, “It was like, ‘I did something? Oh, I resign, I quit.’ Wow, he was gone, and he was replaced by somebody nobody had ever heard of.”

Of course, the man who got elected despite over a dozen credible accusations of sexual harassment and assault would not have respect for the man who quit his job when accused of comparatively minor behaviors. 

Which just goes to show that when Democrats take the high road the Republicans will just run them right over on the low road. 

In my opinion Al Franken should NOT have stepped down, however, I admire the fact that he did what he thought was right even though it cost him so very much. 

Donald Trump would NEVER sacrifice anything for the good of the country, that is what will always make him the inferior to men like Al Franken.

    He’s just throwing “his” in everyone’s face now.
    They can do whatever they want now.

    I’m keeping the blame for this squarely in the lap of Kristen Gillibrand. I can even remember her lips forming the words that she spoke against him, I didn’t want to believe she could be so blind.

    I am done with Kirsten Gillibrand.

      Agree with Gryphen and also with viv at 2:18. I admire Al Franken…always have and always will.

      On another note, I hope that DJT and his whole rotten family, including Jared, lose every dime and piece of real estate they have. May the law suits against the orange oaf keep coming. May his comrades in crime keep turning on him.

    Al Franken is more of a man and gentleman than trump could ever wish for.

    Al got railroaded for sure, especially when we see the what has happened since then.

      I think that Al Franken was targeted because 1) he was about the only Democrat the media would approach for comments on anything. 2) he commented early on and loudly about the GOP collusion with Russia in the 2016 election. The Democratic women in the Senate (except for Klobuchar, a fellow Minnesotan) fell for it and I think in the end all ganged up on Franken to avoid being the one who didn’t. Very disappointed in the bunch of them, including our otherwise good senator, Debbie Stabenow (MI).

        Perhaps all Democratic female politicians ought to be advised that Democratic women voters should be the ones to decide what they do and don’t find acceptable before another good man is hounded out of office to become another stuffed head on the GOP wall.

    Dems do always roll over and show their bellies very quickly. Trump basically admitted that Kavanaugh was as guilty as Trump himself regarding the poor treatment of women, yet they stand up and get it done. Franken was weak. It makes progressives look bad when we just play bitch to the current culture, which is standing in the face of whatever you are charged with, guilty or not.

    Hope this Kav appointment helps liberals grow the spine they need so badly.

    OT/
    Dixon voted to confirm Thomas. Two days later, a group of 100 women showed up at a fundraiser he attended in Chicago and the “Dump Dixon” movement took a hold.

    Though he’d won all 29 elections prior to his re-election bid in 1992 and called in every favor he could, Maddow noted, the Illinois Democrat lost his primary and Senate seat to Carol Moseley-Braun — the former Cook County Register of Deeds who could not afford to run ads until a week prior to the primary and became the first black woman elected to the Senate.

    “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction,”

    Susan Rice, who was President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, bluntly responded to a tweet, angry about Collins, asking who would run against Collins in Maine. She tweeted: “Me.”

    Don’t forget who to blame. GILLIBRAND and HARRIS.
    No re-election for either of them for denying Al Franken his due process.
