The stupidest thing we’ve heard all day: Al Franken can’t say for sure whether he’s molested, groped, or perhaps raped any other women. I’m sorry…what?
REPORTER: Yesterday you were unable to answer the question of whether more women would be coming out with allegations. It does seem that that’s a question that only you can answer. What is the reason, can you tell us, that you can’t definitively say more women have not come out with more allegations, of these kind of stories?
FRANKEN: Sure, if you had asked me two weeks ago would any woman come forward with an allegation like this, I would have said no. So, I cannot speculate. This has been a shock and it’s been extremely humbling. I am embarrassed. I feel ashamed. What I’m going to do is I’m going to start my job. I’m going to go back to work. I’m going to work as hard as I can for the people of Minnesota and I’m going to start that right now. Thank you, all.
What? This is the kind of comment that a serial rapist might give if they were asked the same question. He’s making it seem like there’s a witch hunt, and he has no idea what random woman might come forward and accuse him of something he didn’t do, but instead we could just assume that he’s groped so many women, or made so many lewd remarks, that he can’t remember who might have not liked it.
