News outlets reporting Al Franken has resigned are wrong…or deceptive.
The Minnesota senator said “…in the coming weeks I will be resigning…”
Sorry – that’s not a resignation, that’s a plan to resign.
We agree with Rush on this ‘issue’: the Franken ‘gonna resign’ remark is probably a set-up to cast Roy Moore (if he wins) and President Trump as sexual reprobates who are deserving of similar media treatment, in an ‘if he goes, they should go’ argument.
They want to regain the ‘moral high-ground’ and see Franken as a means to do so.
While we see Al Franken as a buffoon, we also note public opinion should not be the court that determines if an individual is guilty of potentially criminal acts. He deserves to have evidence, proof laid out before him, as should anyone accused of wrongdoing.
Alabama Republican Moore, running for a vacated senate seat, has been hit – as has Mr. Trump – with some unproven allegations about sexual misconduct. We see Al Franken’s ‘plan’ to resign as a media/political ploy meant to pile-on Roy Moore and Mr. Trump with allegations of a Republican ‘war-on-women’ leading up to mid-terms.
Otherwise, why would Franken make an ‘in the coming weeks’ announcement, while, in the same breath, continuing to proclaim his innocence?
But if liberal friends try equating allegations against Roy Moore and the President with what’s going on with Franken, just remind them oh-so-politely that all those Al Franken accusers are DEMOCRATS against a Democrat…negating any opposition motive…
…whereas allegations against Republicans Trump and Moore are by anti-GOP’ers.
Democrats may try seeking a ‘high ground’ when it comes to sexual misconduct and a war-on-women, but because of their decades-long media-aided cover-ups, they can’t.
Women in power within the Party, political male hierarchy in that Party, and Democrat media masters ALL colluded for decades to keep dirty secrets hidden from view.
The trail is too littered with #MeToo sex-abuse casualties from within now coming forward – it’s difficult to see how covering up those abuses can benefit politically.
Ironic, isn’t it? The Democrats’ media-enablers are the primary cause of the current Democrat imbroglio, holding the GOP to higher standards…whilst Clinton et al dallied.
And powerful Democrat men and women alike played their ‘nothing to see here’ role.
What price, cover-ups? Will Democrats pay for their Party’s media-veiled misogyny?
Time will tell.
