A radio broadcaster accused Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) of forcibly kissing her and then taking a photo groping her breasts as she slept, and the lawmaker apologized and promised to cooperate with an ethics investigation.
“With all of the Republicans pounding Al Franken to resign because of this story, it really does open up the question of well, then what about Donald Trump?” Brzezinski said. “If we believe all the other women in all the other cases, why do we not believe women who accused him?”
Brzezinski celebrated the exposure of sexual harassers and predators, but she wondered whether an end goal should be identified.
“There’s lot of generational changes happening here, really good for women, the women’s movement has produced incredible results, including this moment, where women are speaking out, (but) are there times — I’m not going to ask you the question,” Brzezinski said. “I’m going to stay this, that we have to look at what the goal is here. What’s the goal? What are we trying to do?”
