Trump: Franken Folded ‘Like a Wet Rag’ Under Sexual Misconduct Allegations
President Trump mocked former Sen. Al Franken for folding “up like a wet rag” in the face of sexual misconduct allegations, ridiculing the former lawmaker while criticizing his replacement, Democrat Tina Smith, as a “far left Democrat.”
“Boy, did he fold up like a wet rag. Man, man, he was gone so fast,” Trump said at a rally Thursday night in Franken’s home state of Minnesota. “It was like, ‘Oh, he did something,’ ‘Oh, I resign. I quit.'”
Franken resigned last year after allegations that he inappropriately touched and forcibly kissed multiple women while working as a comedian.
