Trump: Al Franken Groping Picture ‘Speaks A Thousand Words’

President Donald Trump slammed Sen. Al Franken for a picture showing the Minnesota senator groping news anchor Leeann Tweeden.

In a tweet Thursday night, Trump said the picture “is really bad” and “speaks a thousand words.” Trump also questioned where Franken’s hands might have been in other pictures.

“And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?” Trump added in a follow-up tweet, referencing a “Saturday Night Live” skit the comedian pitched in 1995. The proposed skit involved Franken drugging and raping CBS “60 Minutes” anchor Leslie Stahl.

Tweeden published the picture Thursday morning in a column where she recounted how Franken forcibly kissed her against her will on a USO trip to the Middle East, where the two performed shows for troops stationed overseas. (RELATED: Franken Victim: ‘I Called Him Fish Lips’ Because ‘That’s What It Reminded Me Of’ [VIDEO])

“You knew exactly what you were doing,” Tweeden wrote in her column addressing Franken. “You forcibly kissed me without my consent, grabbed my breasts while I was sleeping and had someone take a photo of you doing it, knowing I would see it later, and be ashamed.”

The Congressional Office Of Compliance (OOC) released a year-by-year breakdown Wednesday of harassment settlements, including the $17 million awarded to victims throughout the past decade.

The OCC said it decided to release the information regarding payment of awards and settlements regarding all types of harassment due to the mass amounts of recent inquiries. In the released statement, OCC executive director Susan Tsui Grundmann explained that these cases originate from multiple offices inside of the legislative branch, other than the House or the Senate.

“Based on the volume of recent inquiries regarding payment of awards and settlements reached under the CAA, I am releasing these figures beginning with Fiscal Year 1997, up to and including FY 2017,” Grundmann wrote. “A large portion of cases originate from employing offices in the legislative branch other than the House of Representatives or the Senate, and involve various statutory provisions incorporated by the CAA, such as the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.”

The breakdown shows more than $17 million spent on settling harassment claims throughout the past decade.

In the newly released breakdown, harassment payouts averaged almost $400,000 per victim in 2002. In 2017, there has been nearly $1 million in payouts amongst eight victims.

The OCC’s release of harassment settlements comes as various congressional staffers have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment and groping from lawmakers, adding to the cascade of women coming forward against powerful men.

The release also comes the same day that Minnesota Sen. Al Franken was accused of sexually harassing a news anchor multiple times during a USO entertainment tour in the Middle East in 2006.
