On Sean Hannity’s opening monologue the other night he perfectly lays out everything that is wrong with Sen. Al Franken, and his most recent admission to acting inappropriately in front of broadcaster Leeann Tweeden is just “the tip of the iceberg”, reports Fox News.
Hannity starts with the most recently reported sexual misconduct case connected to a female broadcaster who while going on a USO tour with Franken in 2006 where he forcibly kissed her and then took photos of making groping gestures to her chest.
Hannity spoke to Tweeden on his radio show where he asked if she would like anything to happen to Franken, like his resignation from his position as senator.
Tweeden responded, “I’m not calling for him to step down. That’s not why I came out with this. I just want other people- there might be other girls that he did this to. Obviously, you have one on the phone right now that’s talking with me. And there might be others.”
The Fox News host then points out that Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell has called for a House Ethics committee hearing be called, but Hannity thinks that will take too long and “is a delay tactic” for Democrats to give him a pass.
Hannity then lays out all of the other evidence leading up to this point that perfectly displays how creepy, disgusting and gross Franken is and has always been.
Journalist Melanie Morgan, who appeared on Bill Maher’s show “Politically Incorrect” with Franken, and she is alleging that he got her phone number and began to harass her after a heated argument they had on the show.
The creepiness doesn’t stop there.
Franken has also been reported about joking about “raping [journalist] Lesley Stahl” in 1995 and wrote a satirical Playboy article about what he called a “Porn-o-Rama.” He then later apologizes for the comment while seeking the Senate seat in Minnesota, but Hannity has discovered in Franken’s new book he writes that he faked those apologies in order to win votes.
“To say I was sorry for writing a joke was to sell out my career, to sell out who I’d been my entire life. And I wasn’t sorry that I had written Porn-o-Rama or pitched that stupid Lesley Stahl joke at two in the morning. I was just doing my job,” said Franken in his book “Al Franken, Giant of The Senate.”
Hannity goes on to talk about jokes about rapping infants that Franken has made and has called Republican senators “gay” when they didn’t show up for a hearing on an LGBT bill.
It’s safe to say that “any apology from Senator Grope to win votes in the future” should be questioned, Hannity said in reaction to the statement about winning votes.
“Senator Grope” is a good nickname for him and should be placed on him for his entire life as a warning.
