Hollywood’s reaction to Al Franken resignation is utter hypocrisy in light of its sex abuse scourge

Democrats would like America to believe they’re the morally superior party, but do their actions back them up?

Liberals’ reaction to the sexual allegations and ultimate resignation of Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has served as a litmus test for the left’s true morality.

Following Franken’s official resignation announcement on Thursday, many left-wing celebrities took to social media to voice their outrage, suggesting a greater concern for politicking than for their self-proclaimed moral crusade.

Actor-comedian Tom Arnold blasted Franken accuser Leeann Tweeden, claiming Trump allies “coached” her to destroy the Senator’s reputation.

Actress Alyssa Milano, who has been a prominent figure in the #MeToo movement, used the occasion of Franken’s resignation to go after Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore and President Trump.

Milano’s tweet represented what many conservatives believe to be the real motivation behind the push to oust Franken. With Franken and Dem Rep. John Conyers forced out over sexual harassment charges, liberals will be free to attack Roy Moore and Trump with a “clean slate” so-to-speak.

Actor Josh Gad was on it, and went so far as to lavish praise on Franken before setting his sights on the President.

Other celebrities, including singer Clay Aiken and actor Don Cheadle, openly lamented Franken’s impending departure from Capitol Hill.



Some stars, such as actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, said Franken, Moore, and President Trump all deserve due process before facing the consequences of allegations.

A few were simply happy to see the embroiled Franken go.

Conservatives quickly responded to the liberal meltdown.
