Progressive predator and Democrat Senator Al Franken (MN), after multiple women have accused him of sexual misconduct usually centered around unwanted groping, issued a new statement of Orwellian double-speak on Thanksgiving Day, stating that he’s a “warm person; I hug people.”
“I’ve met tens of thousands of people and taken thousands of photographs, often in crowded and chaotic situations,” Franken wrote in a statement obtained by a Minnesota Public Radio reporter. “I’m a warm person; I hug people,” he claimed, as if somehow being in those situations justify unwanted sexual aggression.
Al Franken, a leftist who has been considered a leading presidential contender for the Democrats in 2020, a so-called male feminist, was initially exposed as a progressive predator by Los Angeles news anchor Leann Tweeden.
On November 16, Tweeden told the story, including a picture for proof, of Al Franken grabbing her breasts as she slept during a USO tour to entertain military troops in 2006. Franken could not deny the picture, obviously, but did deny Tweeden’s accusation that Franken, in her words, “put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.”
Franken said that he remembered the sexual assault of Leeann Tweeden “differently” in a statement after the Tweeden story broke.
“I’ve learned from recent stories that in some of those encounters, I crossed a line for some women — and I know that number is too many,” Franken continued in his Thanksgiving Day statement. “Some women have found my greetings or embraces for a hug or photo inappropriate, and I respect their feelings about that,” he said while ignoring Tweeden’s other equally troubling accusation of sexual assault.
As the left-wing Huffington Post reported on Wednesday, other women have come forward with similar accusations against Al Franken.
Ironically, one of the assaults occurred, according to one female accuser, at an event to honor women, Huffpo reports. The women’s stories were “remarkably similar,” Huffpo further reports, even though the women were “not familiar with each others’ stories.”

Tweeden said that Franken’s lips were like those of a “fish,” leading some to nickname the disgraced Democrat “Fish Lips.”
“He came at me and we did the line and he came at me and before you know it you get close and he just put his hand on the back of my head and he mashed his face against — it happened so fast — he mashed his lips against my face and stuck his tongue in my mouth so fast and all I can remember is that his lips were really wet and it was slimy and in my mind I called him Fish Lips the rest of the trip because that’s just what it reminded me of.”
“Fish Lips Franken.” It kind of has a ring to it.
