Democratic Senator and former Hollywood comedian Al Franken has been accused of groping various women. And there is photographic evidence against him. But this didn’t stop ‘The View’s’ Joy Behar, from defending him. Even though a photo of him groping her has been spreading around the internet.
“It was disappointing to hear this about Al Franken. I can’t back Al. He’s a very funny comedian, he was during this time. He’s a senator from Minnesota. He’s a great advocate for women. It’s just so disappointing. Men of all different stripes are out there doing crazy sh*t,” said Behar.
After calling Franken a ‘great advocate for women’ Behar also tried to demean the woman who accused him, saying the photo of him groping her was a joke. “In the picture he was obviously making a joke. I don’t know if he actually had his hands on her, but it’s the part [about the USO skit] where he thrust his tongue down her throat, allegedly, and forced her to kiss him. That is what you call nonconsensual assault,” Behar said.
Behar also tried to pivot to President Trump when they talked about Franken on ‘The View’ but Meghan McCain would not let her. “What about Trump, his people are saying that those women who accused him are liars!” said Behar.
“This is serious. I know her. And when you’re saying ‘what about Trump, what about Trump,’ this is about Leeann! This is an epidemic…bipartisan, across party lines,” responded McCain. Check out the video below.
