MSNBC, which, with all the other likely suspects in the mainstream media, has been flaying Judge Roy Moore for unproven, unsubstantiated allegations of sexual misconduct, and did the same to President Trump, is now very forgiving Senator Al Franken, even excusing or justifying his grabbing of a sleeping woman’s breast, which there is photographic proof of (photo, above).
Franken claims it was a joke. The same kind of jokes Bill Clinton is famous for. Many yucks. Real funny, Franken!
In a lengthy facebook apology, Franken also claimed that he didn’t know what he was thinking when he grabbed the woman’s breast.
I know what you were thinking, Franken. The same thing you were thinking when you stuck your tongue down the woman’s throat without her permission, which she described as, “all I could think about was getting to a bathroom as fast as possible to rinse the taste of him out of my mouth.”

MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt opened the network up to mock-ery after a news report broke that Senator Al Franken had been hit with “groping” accusations from a female sports commentator.
NEW Stmt from @SenFranken: “I certainly don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann.”

Followed by a second lengthier statement that included a more explicit apology, and even called for an ethics investigation… into himself.
Then, Franken was hit by news of a looming second accuser:
Despite the Franken apology and looming ethics investigation, MSNBC chose effectively sided with the accused with its choice of language.
As Newsbusters reported, this is how the news station described the incident:
“Franken] took a picture, which his office now says was of a joke, that showed him potentially — not actually groping — but mock-groping her while she was asleep.”
It doesn’t take instant replay quality superzoom to see that Franken is indeed touching the woman in this picture:
But if that isn’t evidence enough, here’s a pic of Franken full-out groping The View host Joy Behar:

Kassie Hunt had previously given a cozy interview of Senator Franken on MSNBC:
It appears to have been a long-standing “gag” of Franken to grope females in the entertainment industry. But how MSNBC chose to cover the Franken story, that’s another “gag” altogether.
