After Al Franken Resigns, Calls for President to Step Down Flood Twitter: ‘Trump Must Go!’

After Al Franken Resigns, Calls for President to Step Down Flood Twitter: ‘Trump Must Go!’
Twitter was divided on Thursday as people voiced their approval — or disappointment — over Sen. Al Franken’s resignation amid multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

Much like Franken himself did in his emotional Senate-floor speech, many tweeters pointed out the irony that the Minnesota Democrat was forced to resign over his alleged actions while other politicians who have been accused of sexual misconduct — including President Donald Trump and embattled Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore — have not faced consequences. (Trump and Moore have denied the allegations against them.)

Actress Ellen Barkin showed support for Franken while decrying Democrats for their part in his resignation,

Megyn Kelly ditched politics for morning television. Did she make a mistake?

She spent more than a decade honing her prosecutorial voice at Fox News. Now her apolitical morning show, Megyn Kelly Today, is struggling to stick

One year ago, Megyn Kelly was on top of the world. Her nightly Fox News program The Kelly File had briefly unseated The O’Reilly Factor at the top of the ratings. The host had begun – despite a 12-year tenure at the network of Roger Ailes – to ingratiate herself with conservatives and liberals alike. She even seemed, for a moment, impervious to the fickle nature of newscasting: the critics who excoriated her history of racially insensitive remarks would just as easily anoint her a feminist firebrand for her takedowns of Newt Gingrich and Anthony Weiner. With a forthcoming memoir and contract negotiations looming, she was in pole position. But Kelly was, to hear her tell it, unhappy; being an enemy of Donald Trump’s can have that effect.
