On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) elaborated on his call for President Trump to consider resigning by stating that Senator Al Franken (D-MN) acknowledged his inappropriate behavior and resigned, while Trump “acknowledged, basically, that he was assaulting women,” and nothing has happened to him.
Sanders said, “Al Franken acknowledged that he acted inappropriately. He acknowledged that. He asked forgiveness. And then he ended up resigning. You have a president who, on tape, a tape that everybody in America has seen, acknowledged, basically, that he was assaulting women, and well over a dozen women have made that complaint. And what happens to him?”
