Trump Selectively Targets Sexual Allegations Of Democrat Sen. Al Franken Yet Remains Quiet About Moore’s Sex Allegations Involving Minors

President Trump has selectively chosen to tweet criticism about the sexual allegations involving Minnesota Democrat Senator Al Franken, although he remains quiet about Alabama Republican Senator candidate Roy Moore who is alleged to have sexually pursued teenage girls as young as age 14 when he was in his 30’s.

President Trump tweeted on Thursday, “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? …..And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?”

A new Washington Post story on Wednesday claims that two additional women have come forward with allegations that Roy Moore, now age 70, pursued them while they were teenage mall employees and Moore was in his 30’s, including one woman who claimed that Moore gave him a forceful kiss.

Although Moore denied the allegations and maintained that they are politically motivated, several Republicans have already said that he is unfit for office and should step aside.

Republican Mitt Romney tweeted this message on November 20th,

“Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside.”

In light of the new allegations Moore pursued young teenage females many years ago, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) had some strong words about Moore’s fate as a politician in the Republican Party.

“Anyone who would do this to a child has no place in politics, let alone the U.S. Senate.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters in Kentucky that he believes Moore’s female accusers and later said, “I think he should step aside.”

Republican Arizona Senator John McCain also voiced his criticism of Moore.

In a released statement on November 9th, Sen. John McCain described Moore’s sexual allegations as “deeply disturbing and disqualifying.”

“The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of” Sen. McCain said in a November 9th statement.

Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich said on ABC’s This Week on Sunday that Moore shouldn’t be the standard bearer of the Republican Party and admitted that he hopes the people of Alabama and party officials will look at the allegations again.

Governor Kasich said that “this is not about Obama or the left wing” and described Moore’s sexual allegations as “inappropriate.”

Speaking on NBC’S Meet the Press that aired on Sunday, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Penn.) said that he thinks the sexual allegations about Moore “have more credibility than the denial” and he believes it would be best if Moore would just step aside.

“I think a write in is something we should certainly explore” said Sen. Toomey.

Although President Trump remains quiet about Moore’s sexual allegations involving several female minors while he attacks Democrat Sen. Al Franken’s sexual allegations on Twitter related to a adult female, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said yesterday during a press briefing that “the President believes that these allegations are very troubling and should be taken seriously” concerning Republican Roy Moore.

According to a new Fox poll sampled from November 13-15th, Democrat challenger Doug Jones has a +8 point lead over Republican candidate Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race.
