Trump's scolding of Franken immediately backfires

"But we haven't heard a lot from the president".

And then of course there is former Democratic president Bill Clinton, who admitted to having sexual relations with an intern, Monica Lewinsky, while serving in the White House.

Hours before Trump tweeted about Franken, Sanders told reporters that Trump did not plan to rescind his endorsement of Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct.

Trump has repeatedly ignored questions on Moore since returning from his lengthy trip to Asia.

Last month, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the White House's official stance on the sexual assault accusations is that every single one of the women is lying.

"Our goal is not only to raise awareness, but also make abundantly clear that harassment in any form has no place in this institution", Ryan said.

In response to his latest foray, Trump critics immediately zeroed in on allegations against the president and his infamous remarks in which he boasted about grabbing women by the genitals.

Privately some Republicans admit the race may now be lost, with the Republican vote split between Moore's die-hard supporters and so-called "write-in" candidates who are not on the ballot.

Hillary Clinton said Trump, as president, should do more to unite the country.

Mr Trump took to Twitter to hit out at Senator Al Franken who, it emerged earlier in the day, was photographed in 2006 groping a sports broadcaster's breasts while she was asleep.

Trump withstood multiple sexual harassment allegations and the release of the vulgar "Access Hollywood" recording to win election.

Trump could also be asked to testify, although he might have legal grounds to refuse under the separation of powers doctrine, known as "executive priviledge", according to references. "You can do anything". Al Franken (D-MN) for alleged sexual misconduct. "Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?.", Mr Trump tweeted.

The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words.

Trump wrote in back-to-back tweets. "His desire to lash out against his perceived enemies outstrips his capacity for being strategic, Smith said".

Trump has not personally spoken publicly on the charges. "And also, how bad can it be if other people are doing it?"

To spare his political rivals conducting opposition research, O'Neill said in a Facebook post that he had been "sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females". "He was, in fact, taking a gamble he could redirect attention to Franken, which I think has actually worked to some degree". Maher then suggested an alternate #MeToo campaign that differentiates between the likes of Franken and Moore, adding, "I know the difference between someone who behaved like a high schooler and someone who targeted high schoolers".

When asked "won't we hit our own troops?" the Edward character replies: "Yes. but we'll hit theirs as well".
