Trump slammed Franken when the allegations were made against him, but took the opportunity while in Minnesota to remind Franken of what he thinks of him.
On Thursday, President Trump held a rally in Rochester, Minnesota in order to promote the Republican agenda in the typically blue state, as well as boost Republican Senate candidate Karin Housley.
During his speech, Trump slammed former Democratic Sen. Al Franken, who resigned last year amid multiple allegations of groping and inappropriate behavior toward women:
[Tina Smith] took a wacky guy's place. That guy was – he was wacky. Boy, did he fold up like a wet rag, huh? Man, he was gone so fast. I don't wanna mention Al Franken's name, okay, so I won't. He was gone so fast. It was like, "Oh, he did something!" "Oh, I resign. I quit, I quit." Wow. He was gone, and he was replaced by somebody that nobody ever heard of.
Franken announced his resignation less than a month after the November 16, 2017 allegations from Leeann Tweeden and after considerable pressure from Democrats.
