Trump's scolding of Franken immediately backfires

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway offered a different explanation for Trump's silence on Moore, telling Fox News on Friday that, while the story was old news by the time he returned from Asia, the Franken controversy was "brand new". "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'".

For days, he refused to call on Republican senate hopeful Roy Moore to bow out of the race after being accused of sexual advances toward multiple underaged girls. "He is tweeting on Al Franken, asked about Roy Moore yesterday and he didn't respond".

Hillary, 70, the former Democratic presidential nominee who a year ago lost the White House race to Trump, 71, said that Democratic Senator Al Franken has apologised for his reported sexual misconduct and his willingness for a probe "is the kind of accountability I'm talking about".

Franken apologized and supported an ethics committee investigation into his actions.

Republicans in Washington are calling on Moore to step aside from the race and have floated various paths to retain Republican control of the Senate seat without Moore.

Eleven women came forward during Trump's presidential campaign to accuse him of sexual misconduct over several decades.

Trump has repeatedly dismissed the allegations against him as fake news, most recently telling reporters on October 16: "It's just fake".

Clinton also lambasted the two GOP politicians, saying that Trump "has disgraced the office" and that Moore "clearly doesn't appear to be someone who will bring respect and honour to the state of Alabama". "Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?.", Mr Trump tweeted. Al Franken (D-MN) forcibly kissed and groped Leeann Tweeden in 2006.

Three of the 16 women who have accused Trump of some form of sexual assault spoke to People on Thursday.

Franken has made numerous statements in support of women who experience sexual misconduct and has worked on legislation to support sexual assault accusers. Host Sandra Smith noted that there is a cloud hanging over Washington due to the Franken allegation, pointing out that the president commented on the photo of the Minnesota lawmaker groping Tweeden.

The woman, now 55, said she was attending a fund-raiser for Mr Bush's re-election campaign in Dearborn, Michigan, with her father when the president grabbed her bum during a photo-op. "I think that at this point we believe that it's up to the people of Alabama to make a decision".

When the "Access Hollywood" recording was released a month before the election, and Trump was heard bragging that he could kiss women and grab their genitals against their will, many Republicans abandoned him and urged contrition.
