Megyn Kelly: Donald Trump Is 'Tone Deaf' for Criticizing Al Franken

As the storm of allegations has swirled, Trump, who himself has faced more than a dozen allegations of sexual misconduct, had largely avoided comment.

When asked about the past behaviour of Bill Clinton, her husband and a former USA president, and if she should have been more supportive of his female accusers versus reports that she attacked their credibility, Hillary said, "Every situation has to be judged on its own merit".

"Al Franken was a brand-new news story yesterday, and the president weighs in, as he does, on the news of the day", she said.

Noah continued: "This story is bad on its own but it's especially bad in the context of the week we've been having which, until today, was dominated by the man most wanted by mall cops, Roy Moore, the Alabama senate candidate who is facing multiple allegations, including sexual harassment, sexual assault and misconduct with underaged girls".

Asked why Trump finds allegations against Moore troubling while contending the ones against him are to be dismissed, Sanders said that the president "has certainly a lot more insight into what he personally did or didn't do".

A month before Trump won the 2016 election, a tape surfaced of him discussing groping women.

Trump, through a White House statement, said last week that Moore should step aside if the allegations are true.

In his tweet, Trump referred to the Minnesota Democrat as "Al Frankenstien", and suggested Franken may have done more with his hands in subsequent photos.

But White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump's accusers should not be believed in the same way. They also suggested that Trump was wary of wading into issues of sexual impropriety given the previous claims against him.

The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words.

Nearly every prominent Republican in Congress, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, has condemned Moore in no uncertain terms.

"Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?" "I think that's a very clear distinction".

"And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women". Al Franken Thursday night after a woman said he groped and kissed her without her consent.

"I wish I could say that what Roy Moore is trying will never work, but it's already worked", Noah concluded.

Moore has so far been defiant in the face of calls for him to abandon his candidacy.

Despite the many women who have accused him of inappropriate behavior, and the tape of him talking about how to "grab" women, Trump couldn't help but go after Democratic Sen.

Sanders also refused to say whether Trump was pulling his endorsement of the candidate. "The ALGOP Steering Committee supports Judge Roy Moore as our nominee and trusts the voters as they make the ultimate decision in this crucial race", the party said in a statement.
