Trump smears @TinaSmithMN: “Nobody knows who the hell she is!”
He says this about Franken: “I don’t want to mention his name, Al Franken. He was gone so fast. It was like ‘oh he did something?’ Oh, I resign I resign. I quit!”
Says Franken “folded like wet blanket.” Mocks Smith. pic.twitter.com/o3bvnvQwBx

Two days after President Donald Trump drew criticism from lawmakers in his own party for making fun of Christine Blasey Ford at a rally, he went after former Minnesota lawmaker Al Franken for resigning from the Senate after he was accused of sexual misconduct.
At a rally stop Thursday night in Rochester, Minnesota, Trump began talking about the comedian-turned-politician after criticizing Sen. Tina Smith (D-Minn.). “She took a wacky guy’s place,” he said, adding later, “Boy, did he fold up like a wet rag, huh? Man, he was gone so fast. He was gone so fast, I don’t want to mention Al Franken’s name, okay, so I won’t mention it,” he said to boos in the crowd.
Added Trump, “It was like, ‘I did something? Oh, I resign, I quit.’ Wow, he was gone, and he was replaced by somebody nobody had ever heard of.”
Of course, the man who got elected despite over a dozen credible accusations of sexual harassment and assault would not have respect for the man who quit his job when accused of comparatively minor behaviors.
Which just goes to show that when Democrats take the high road the Republicans will just run them right over on the low road.
In my opinion Al Franken should NOT have stepped down, however, I admire the fact that he did what he thought was right even though it cost him so very much.
Donald Trump would NEVER sacrifice anything for the good of the country, that is what will always make him the inferior to men like Al Franken.
