Twitter Reacts to Al Franken Inevitable Resignation

After multiple accusations of sexual misconduct, Senator Al Franken has agreed to resign within the next two weeks.

Franken, throughout his resignation speech, declared today the “worst day” of his political life and used the moment to note not only the seriousness of sexual misconduct, but the hypocrisy shown by the media and the American people as well.

In his speech, Franken bravely mentioned, “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.”

Expect Trump to tweet something within the coming hours in response.

While some feel Franken’s resignation speech felt hollow, supporters of Franken’s felt otherwise, stating that Franken was not fairly processed.

Other’s viewing it from a “leftist” versus “rightest” point of view, took matters to the extreme.

Some even went on to build a sort of conspiracy around Franken’s resignation.

Franken decried during his speech that he may be “giving up his voice,” but will not be “giving up his voice.” A statement supporters of Franken surely appreciate.
