The mere mention of Coulter's name — let alone anything she's said or written — in a political debate among friends often sets of fireworks.
The best-selling author delights in irritating liberals and attacking everything they believe, propose, do, or have done.
Such was the case with a tweet on Saturday about embattled Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), accused by four women of inappropriate sexual behavior — including “butt-groping”:
Al Franken insists he will hold onto his seat. Holding onto seats would appear
to be his specialty.

Contrary responses were fierce, summed up best, in five words:
You're definitely talking about Trump.

As reported by The Washington Post, Franken on Sunday told several Minnesota media outlets he feels “embarrassed and ashamed” about the allegations against him. Of the ”butt-groping,“ he said it's ”not something I would intentionally do."
Refusing to resign — as he prepared to return to work in Washington, D.C., on Monday — Franken said to his fellow Minnesotans that he's committed to “regaining their trust.”
