Dem Sen Who Called for Franken to Resign: ‘I Would Love It’ if Trump and Moore Stepped Aside

Latest news

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Mazie Hirono (D-HI), who called for Senator Al Franken (D-MN) to resign, stated she would “love it” if President Trump and Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore stepped down.

    Hirono said, “I would love it if both of them stepped aside. Because I have said publicly that President Trump has admitted to being a sexual predator. And as for Roy Moore, the credible allegations of him being a child molester basically should cause both of them to look at themselves and step down. I would love it. But at the same time, you know –, and looking forward, where are the Republican voices? Where is their outrage? In fact, on the opposite end, they’re coming forward to support Roy Moore. How’s that for totally inappropriate positions?”

    Anchor Jake Tapper asked Hirono if Democrats were calling for Franken to resign to try and contrast their treatment of sexual misconduct with the GOP’s handling. She responded that she wants to be part of a cultural change on sexual misconduct.
