"And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women", Trump said in a second tweet. Plus with Al Franken, we're talking about one incident. Sounds like a Mel Brooks joke.
Trump did not endorse Moore in the primary, spurning the desires of some of his anti-establishment supporters. She included a picture in which Franken appears to be trying to touch her breasts as she is sleeping.
She said she would leave any disciplinary action up to Senate leaders and was not calling for Franken to step down. Franken apologized to Tweeden both publicly and in a separate letter sent to her that Tweeden read aloud on The View.

"Even before the president weighed in, folks were already trying to attack him" over Moore and his own history, said a political ally in regular contact with the White House who requested anonymity to speak candidly about political strategy. Al's a friend, but Al, I gotta tell you: if you write a comedy sketch where you, Al Franken, kiss a model, and the next line of dialogue isn't, 'Get off of me, creepy, ' it's not comedy.
She told supporters that Trump actually "owes us a thank you" for taking the media focus off investigations of possible collaboration between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation previous year.
"Is the President not being a hypocrite in tweeting about Al Franken and saying nothing about allegations about the Republican, Roy Moore?" she asked.
"I'm sorry", said the senator, who skipped a series of votes Thursday.
