On Thursday night, President Donald Trump suggested Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), whom he referred to as “Al Frankenstien (sic),” may have groped more than once the woman in the lewd photo released that day:

Former model and performer Leeann Tweeden told the world Thursday of how Franken allegedly gave her an unwanted kiss and groped her while she slept on a flight back from a USO tour in 2006.

“Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?” Trump asked, suggesting Franken did more than just grab Tweeden's breasts.

Franken, Trump suggested, was hypocritical for lecturing about sexual harassment after engaging in some of his own:

Lesley Stahl was the CBS reporter who Franken joked about raping in a skit on “Saturday Night Live.”

In a 1995 New Yorker article, Franken explained the skit would involve Franken drugging Stahl before taking photos of her after his rape.

“'I give the pills to Lesley Stahl. Then when Lesley is passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her.' Or ‘That’s why you never see Lesley until February.' Or, ‘When she passes out. I put her in various positions and take pictures of her,’” he said, according to Fox News.
