Mr. President,

I don’t know why I expected anything different. I mean, it’s been patently obvious that you have no shame or sense of hypocrisy. But I still would have thought that you would know better than to publicly weigh in on a sexual assault scandal, particularly with Roy Moore in the spotlight, to say nothing of your own actions. Maybe that’s the point, though; you want to be the center of attention, even if it calls up your own previous wrongdoing.

I’m not defending Al Franken. He needs to be held accountable for his actions. You don’t have the moral standing to do so, though, not when you’ve denied all allegations against you and threatened legal action against your victims. You sent your press secretary in to note that Franken admitted wrongdoing while you haven’t, but that’s exactly the problem. How can you hold people accountable if you won’t hold yourself or your own party accountable?

This is not an issue of party politics, but of decency, and we’ve had enough of powerful men treating women as their playthings. Franken should go. Moore should go. And so should you.
