Al Franken Falls on His Sword So the Party Can Attack Donald Trump

Al Franken Falls on His Sword So the Party Can Attack Donald Trump

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) announced his intention Thursday to resign from the Senate amidst accusations of sexual misconduct — but managed to take a parting shot at Presidential Donald Trump and Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore.

Both Trump and Moore have denied allegations of sexual misconduct, though Trump apologized for “locker room talk” on an open mic during a 2005 taping of Access Hollywood.

Indeed, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) drew a direct parallel between Franken and Trump on Thursday, suggesting that the president should resign as Franken had done.

To that end, Franken fell on his sword to allow the party to attack Trump.
