President Trump, who has faced over a dozen allegations of sexual misconduct, mocked former Democratic Sen. Al Franken for resigning last year after multiple sexual misconduct allegations were leveled against him.
“That guy was wacky. Boy did he fold up like a wet rag, huh?” Trump said at a rally in Rochester, Minnesota on Thursday.
“He was gone so fast, I don’t want to mention Al Franken’s name, he was gone so fast,” he added.
Franken, who was accused by eight women of sexual misconduct, announced his resignation in December after facing intense pressure to resign from others within the Democratic caucus.
“I of all people am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving, while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office,” he said on the Senate floor.
Franken was replaced by then-Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith in January.
