I am really not sure why, all of a sudden, Dems are fair game for sexual harassment claims. In the past, only Republicans were.
Wonder of wonders, today, they were actually talking about Bill Clinton being less than honorable. What?!!
I feel like I’m in a parallel universe.

In order to prevent the world taking ANOTHER look at his accusers ~ perhaps the kitty grabber in chief should stop tweeting about Al Franken.

It just reminds us of the 13 women who came forward and who Trump said he would sue after the election.

WHICH, of course, he has not and never will

You are already seeing people bringing up Trump stories that they haven't brought up since the election. "In the context of the recent allegations..." posts and articles are starting to pop up and you are going to start seeing more of it. All of it, every allegation, every career that's been halted in its tracks, every apology made and every reputation destroyed have all just been props used to set the stage for the final act, taking down Donald Trump.

I may be ignored or mocked or have my judgement questioned for saying this but in a few months time many people will be singing the same tune and it will seem obvious in retrospect.
You're precisely right. It's politically convenient to sacrifice Bill Clinton right now. Franken will get a pass because he's still valuable. This is all about trying to turn it into a Trump witch hunt. It didn't happen organically either. The left wing think tanks dream up the strategy, they essentially give the talking points to the liberal media and off to the twitter and the posting forums go the bots to interject every mention of sexual assault with "yeahbutTrump". It's ok, it's kind of entertaining. The second I see someone posting or tweeting "yeahbutTrump" I know they're regurgitating someone else's talking points and have nothing to offer themselves. It's like a slow, drunk throwing a hay-maker at you. You see it coming a mile away & it's not going to land.

The left cared more about Hillary winning than the women Bill assaulted. Now that she lost though, they're desperate and think the only way to get Trump is via sexual allegations. They understand America doesn't take them seriously because of their decades of defending Bill Clinton. In order to get to Trump, they have to sacrifice Bill Clinton. Sorry Bill, by any means necessary. You're just collateral damage.

Oooh, the Russia investigation wasn't wrapped up in 12 weeks, must mean they can't find anything! Not.

There are new things coming out every single day that look extremely bad for this Administration. No need to distract from it, but we can't help if some men are pigs - that's clearly the most bipartisan thing about politics.

Yeah I find it interesting how Trump ignores someone in is own party whose accused of sexual harassment yet it's all about A Franken. Those who voted for Trump don't care that their own president has admitted to these things.

Yeah I thought they might throw Franken under the bus since he's from a dem state and would be replaced with another dem but it looks like they're going with the "he made a wonderful apology and his victim forgives him" angle and keeping him around. Oh and by the way republicans, don't think you can start throwing around apologies and expect to be forgiven. That's a trap! Don't fall for it. The dems(and the media) will say "well this situation is different so the apology is just an admission of guilt that can be used against him".

And yes it is easy to see the spoon fed talking points. Like actors reading a line from a script.

Unfortunately, it is for some. Following their leader, I guess...

The OP is right it started some 40 years ago when the left went forward in time and saw that trump was going to be president. So they set him up and the rest of his party. It's all a conspiracy theory back in time...um forward... some where in time the liberal's set this all up.
