Trump blasted Al Franken for his ‘groping’ allegations, then Gretchen Carlson spoke up

Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson was not all all happy with President Trump’s remarks about the allegations against Sen. Al Franken.

The president took to Twitter to weigh in on the sexual abuse bombshell against the Minnesota Democrat on Thursday.

Trump asked “where do his hands go” in reference to the photo released by a sports commentator who accused Franken of groping her and forcibly kissing her when he traveled with her as a comedian in a USO tour of Vietnam in 2006.

Carlson fired back at Trump on Friday with a tweet asking, “What about yours?”

Carlson was apparently making a reference to the women who, during the 2016 presidential race, accused Trump of sexual harassment and assault in the past. Trump denied all of the accusations.

Carlson left the cable news network in 2016 after filing a sexual harassment case against the network’s chairman and CEO Roger Ailes.

Franken, meanwhile, issued his “sincerest apologies” for the photo on Thursday as  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced a Senate Ethics Committee probe into the matter. A second accuser, a former radio host, also claimed she was “stalked and harassed” by Franken who “scared the living hell out of me.”

The Democratic senator even called for an ethics investigation into himself.

“The first and most important thing—and if it’s the only thing you care to hear, that’s fine—is: I’m sorry,” Franken said.

“I understand why we need to listen to and believe women’s experiences,” he added. “I am asking that an ethics investigation be undertaken, and I will gladly cooperate.”
