    Mika Brzezinski Questions #MeToo Movement: ‘I’m Just Wondering If All Women Need to Be Believed’

    On Friday's show, Brzezinski said she was troubled by the resignation of Sen. Al Franken (D - Minnesota) over allegations of sexual misconduct and -- in a departure from movement orthodoxy -- speculated that maybe we shouldn't believe all
    women who make accusations of misconduct.

    I'm fully aghast and against Frankens resignation. I looked into every credible news accounts of the accusations from both sides ( BTW that's how normal intelligent people sift through Fake News ) I'm left unconvinced and think there was a lot of swiftboating of Franken. He should have taken a small playbook out of the Republican party and stood his ground. We needed him and his voice in the senate.

    Franken isn't going anywhere. His resignation will not be "accepted." After Moore is elected, Franken will "un-resign."

    He should, but he won't.

    We'll see. Why not just step down now, like Conyers? Who ever heard of a resignation "in a few weeks?" His accusers now are being racked, as we speak. It's Clinton all over again. Franken isn't going anywhere.

    I think so. If Moore wins, Franken stays and we see the limits of #metoo. If Doug Jones is elected, in Alabama no less, Franken is gone. It is ironic that the Alabama voter now largely holds Franken's fate in their hands.

    OK, that's good. Tina's alright, although I'd prefer Franken, and she'll probably win in '18

    reds here haven't heard about the tax bill coming up for a vote in Congress. I'm kinda surprised. It's been in all the papers. Even been on TV.

    The best statement I've seen from this latest carnage came from a student who lived through it -

    "My generation will not allow this to continue!"

    Remember voting age is 18. Read it and weep reds.

    It would have been more fun if he had said "testicles".
