Trump takes a risk by wading into debate over sexual misconduct

A CBS correspondent wants to know why President Trump has not sued the women who accuse him of sexual harassment, as he said he would do following the 2016 election.

"We haven't heard a lot from the president", Smith pointed out.

Trump's Thursday tweets came amid his deafening silence regarding Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate in Alabama, more than a week after the Washington Post first published multiple accounts from women who say when they were teenagers they were sexually assaulted or pursued by Moore while he was in his 30s.

U.S. President Donald Trump is displaying selective outrage over allegations of sexual harassment against prominent men in politics, as his own tortured past lingers over his response. The survey revealed that 50 percent of likely voters said they would support Democrat Doug Jones, while 42 percent said they would support the accused Judge Roy Moore. He continues to contend that all of the women who have accused him are liars, Sanders said last month.

Trump was referring to a 1995 NY magazine article quoting Franken joking in the "Saturday Night Live" writers' room about drugging and raping journalist Lesley Stahl.


Trump, through a White House statement, said last week that Moore should step aside if the allegations are true.

"The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words", Trump tweeted.

When asked by reporters on Friday the difference between the allegations against Trump and those against Franken, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders replied: "Senator Franken has admitted wrongdoing and the president hasn't". They also suggested that Trump was wary of wading into issues of sexual impropriety given the previous claims against him.

Al Franken's Senate Ethics Committee investigation into allegations he sexually harassed a former Playboy model on a 2006 USO Tour, could open the door for Roy Moore and Donald Trump accusers to testify under oath about their sexual misconduct allegations.

In Franken, "the president basically had a free shot on goal" to "remind people that Democrats have some serious problems on their end", the ally said. "Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?.", Trump tweeted.


"The American people, I think, spoke loud and clear when they elected this president", Sanders said. "And I don't have anything further to add beyond that", she said.

"I said it, I was wrong and I apologize", Trump said on October 8, 2016, discussing the "Access Hollywood" tape.

Late in the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump was accused by at least 11 women of sexual harassment following the leak of the infamous 2004 "Access Hollywood" tape that featured audio of him boasting about groping women without permission.

Meyers then showed various clips of reporters attempting to ask Republican congressmen about the accusations against Moore; in the case of Mo Brooks, he fled a reporter's questions while running down the stairs. She probably got called to the principal's office to take this call.
