White House's New Defense Of Trump's Moore Silence: He Supported Strange!

Hollywood’s #MeToo wave engulfs Washington

Trump seemed to revel in the news with a favorite standby: a tweet and a nickname.

Los Angeles radio anchor Leeann Tweeden said that during a USO trip to the Middle East and Afghanistan in 2006 Franken forced his tongue in her mouth during a rehearsal for a skit and then groped her while she was sleeping during a flight home - a moment that was captured in a photograph. "Right here! I guess that makes me bad, '" Franken says.

Former president George HW Bush, 93, has also found himself in the line of fire, accused by half a dozen women of groping them during photo ops, both before and after he became confined to a wheelchair. She did not call on Moore to leave the race.

"I think in light of this conversation, we should have a very different conversation about President Trump, and a very different conversation about allegations against him", she said.

Over in the House, Speaker Paul Ryan and his fellow Republicans wrote a coda to a tortured political year, finally passing the major fiscal legislation in the form of a sweeping tax reform bill that he's been chasing ever since he caught the budgetary bug from his mentor, the late conservative guru Jack Kemp. "Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?.", Trump tweeted.

Trump has not mentioned Moore in public comments and tweets, and has ignored reporters' questions about the allegations. He's anxious about alienating Moore's supporters if he takes steps that would prevent him from being elected - a reflection, aides said, of Trump's longstanding fears of losing his base.

GameStop Has Suspended Its PowerPass Used Game Rental Service
Per Kotaku , anyone who already bought into GamePass can bring back their pass and any game they rented for a full refund. Stores that had the program already have been told to remove all advertising for the program and to hault the service.

The top Republican in the Senate plans to urge President Donald Trump to help contain the damage in the Alabama Senate race, though administration officials cautioned that Trump remains hesitant to get involved as the scandal surrounding Roy Moore grows. Maher then suggested an alternate #MeToo campaign that differentiates between the likes of Franken and Moore, adding, "I know the difference between someone who behaved like a high schooler and someone who targeted high schoolers".

The White House said in a written statement last week that Moore should step aside if the allegations of sexual misconduct against him are true. The former "Saturday Night Live" writer and cast member has been an outspoken critic of Trump's administration.

Franken has apologized and said he does not remember that second incident in the same way, but he now faces a Senate ethics investigation that could see him fined, stripped of committee posts or even expelled.

Accusations of Franken's misconduct come two days after a candid hearing in Washington, during which female lawmakers said sexual harassment is a pervasive problem on Capitol Hill.

Last night, President Donald Trump thought it would be a good idea to comment on yesterday's bombshell revelation that Sen. Maher said, presumably, in reference to Trump.
