Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken suggested it is unjust that President Trump, who bragged of sexual misconduct, still serves, and that Franken Wednesday was announcing his resignation.
Franken, who spoke on the floor of the Senate, said he will resign “in the coming weeks.” He added that it is wrong that Roy Moore, “who repeatedly preyed on young girls,” is running for Senate with the full support of the Republican Party.
Franken was not the least bit contrite, making no apologies for the hurt he has caused. Instead, he offered the standard Washington nonsense that he is leaving because he doesn’t want to become a “distraction” and that he couldn’t fully serve the people of Minnesota while he was being investigated for ethics violations.
So, he’s doing everyone a favor, still as generous as ever. And as arrogant.
“This has been a tough few weeks for me,” Franken said in a moment of shamelessness and self-indulgence, assuring those who he thinks are concerned, “I’m going to be just fine.”
He said as a senator he has “improved people’s lives” and assure other liberals that he will continue to “fight alongside you,” apparently failing to understand they’re going to want him nowhere near them.
Of course, Franken is resigning because he abused women and because Democrats, after initial hypocrisy, finally decided to demand his resignation.
