Democrats are dropping like flies due to sexual allegations and misconduct. They needed to save face so they went after someone they thought would buckle under the pressure: U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore.
Now they are angry that he won’t admit to the false accusations, so they are turning their focus back to President Trump.
Not only did Democratic Senator Al Franken’s announce his resignation on Thursday, but Bernie Sanders apparently felt emboldened and demanded that Trump think about resigning as well.
The socialist Senator guest starred on “CBS This Morning,” and called on Trump to resign over a tape from nearly 12 years. In the recording, Trump can be heard making lewd locker room comments about women and sexualizing them.
Was what he said okay? No. Is he the first man to speak that way? No. There is a MAJOR difference in speaking something and actually acting upon it. Trump did not do the latter.
Sanders said, “What I worry about right now, as we speak, in restaurants and in offices all over this country where you have bosses who are not famous, there is harassment of women and women are being intimidated. We need a cultural revolution in this country.”
“Let me take it a little step further. We have a president of the United States who acknowledged on a tape widely seen all over the country that he’s assaulted women,” he continued, “so I would hope maybe the president of the United States might pay attention of what’s going on and also think about resigning. But if your point is it is not just Al Franken you are absolutely right.”
Here is the clip:
