Comedians Norm McDonald and Franken were tossing around ideas for lines about a satire of "60 Minutes," and one line Franken proposed involved drugging and then raping Stahl.
As Democratic and Republican senators alike condemn Al Franken for allegedly forcibly kissing and groping a woman during a USO tour in 2006 and call for an ethics committee investigation into his behavior, several women who have worked for the Minnesota Democrat are defending him.
The statement is co-signed by eight former Franken staffers who have worked for him since he was elected to the Senate in 2008.
Another former Franken staffer, his former spokeswoman Jess McIntosh, signaled on Thursday that she would not be speaking about the allegations against Franken. Alexandra Fetissoff, a former spokeswoman for the senator, did not immediately respond to follow-up questions on Friday.
Beijing has warned Germany of "defending Tibet independence," saying the match host must ensure respect between the countries.
China's foreign ministry on Monday criticized the appearance of Tibetan flags during a friendly football game between the country's Under-20 (U-20) team and Germany's four-tier TSV Schott Mainz. On Saturday, Chinese U-20 players ran off the field in the 25th minute after six activists waved Tibetan flags during the game.
The opening paragraph of the Post story was startling: “Eight women have told The Washington Post that longtime television host Charlie Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas.” Within hours, CBS News announced it had, “suspended Charlie Rose after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct from employees and prospective employees at the Charlie Rose Show.”
The continuing protests by multimillionaire NFL players who refuse to stand for our national anthem – disrespecting our flag and the brave patriots in our armed forces – are setting a terrible example for America’s children as Thanksgiving approaches.
Normally I don’t encourage making a federal case out of school disciplinary matters, but if the left keeps jumping us with culture rumbles, we have to take their own weapons to use on them.
Donald Trump has managed to politicize the game to such a degree that the seemingly innocuous pleasure of football-viewing could easily prompt a row.
A fixture of Thanksgiving morning is watching a series of bloated, brightly-coloured, hot-air filled figures wobble their way down New York’s Sixth Avenue. Even setting aside the obvious parallels with Trump, the matter of Macy’s long association with the parade is fraught with Trump-related problems.
The near contempt felt by European leaders at the British government’s management of the Brexit negotiations, and their concerns over the “unimpressive” and “surprising” behaviour of Boris Johnson and David Davis, have been revealed by a confidential report drawn up by the Irish government.
At a meeting between the Brexit secretary, David Davis, and the French ministers for defence and European affairs, Jean-Yves Le Drian and Nathalie Loiseau, on 23 October, the British cabinet minister is said to have left his hosts confused by barely mentioning the ongoing Brexit negotiations.
President Trump criticized a player from his hometown New York Giants who knelt while a U.S. Army Master Sergeant sang the national anthem on Thanksgiving.
In September, Giants co-owner John Mara said he wants his players to stand for the anthem, but is in full support of any player who kneels, according to comments defensive player Jonathan Casillas gave to NJ.com. After Trump's initial charged remarks about the kneelers at a rally, Coach Ben McAdoo said the Giants "practice empathy here."
