Maher: ‘Franken Doesn’t Deserve to be Lumped in with Moore and Trump’

Bill Maher is off his rocker!

We are living in a time where a single accusation from the lips of a woman can end a man’s entire career, regardless of the truth, and allegations are flying on a daily basis.

Some men are accused of sexual harassment and there is so much proof, it’s sickening. Others are accused and not a shred of evidence can be found, anywhere. I will let you figure out on your own which one is likely innocent.

“Real Time” host Bill Maher is ridiculously claiming that Senator Al Franken (of whom there are photos showing him fondling an unconscious woman) deserves to be condemned, yet he should not be lumped in with people like actor Kevin Spacey, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, President Donald Trump, or Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore.

There’s a little problem with his argument though. Spacey and Weinstein admitted to the allegations and there are photos of Al Franken. However, the allegations against the president were proven to be false and there is not a single incriminating piece of evidence against Moore.

Therefore, Moore and Trump do not deserve to be lumped in with the likes of those trash bags.

Maher said that Franken “did a bad thing. And the condemnation has been universal, which he deserves. What he doesn’t deserve is to be lumped in with Roy Moore, or Kevin Spacey, or Harvey Weinstein, or Donald Trump.”

Maher continued, “Donald Trump calls his accusers liars, threatened to sue them, did long the riffs at his rallies where he would say that they were too ugly for him to assault. Plus, with Al Franken, we’re talking about one incident. Trump has 16 accusers. Roy Moore has nine. Roy Moore spent more time chatting up young girls at the mall than Santa Claus. So, how about another #MeToo campaign where it’s, I can tell two unlike things apart #MeToo.”

He said, “I know the difference between a man who once acted like a dick and a man who is a dick, #MeToo. I know the difference between someone who behaved like a high schooler and someone who targeted the high schoolers, #MeToo.”
