Judd Apatow Wasn’t Talking About Al Franken But He Should Have Been

frankenI couldn’t click fast enough when I saw tweets about Sen. Al Franken and a claim he forced himself on a woman during a USO tour 11 years ago. That’s because I always liked Al Franken, back to the days of appearances on Letterman, then Saturday Night Live, and then the U.S. Senate. His book, “Al Franken: Giant of the Senate” was both inspirational and entertaining, and gave me hope for Washington, since Franken talked about how personal relationships get built (except in the case of Ted Cruz, of course) that cross party lines and lead to better legislation.

When I read talk radio host’s Leeann Tweeden’s account word by word, I came away feeling unconvinced that Franken did something clearly egregious, let alone wildly awful and out of character. It sounded like an incident Franken might have cited in his book, where he talked at length about the “dehumorizing machine” that Republicans ran his works of satire through during his first Senate campaign. Franken said that some of the material they trotted out as proof of his unfitness for office was indeed in terrible taste, while some was just plain bad. But some was funny, or at least it was in context, and during the times it was produced.

Still, I was concerned. Not just that Tweeden’s version of events was accurate but that Franken would be disgraced even if they weren’t.

Donald Trump speaking at a state dinner in Japan: “So my relationship with Shinzo got off to quite a rocky start because I never ran for office, and here I am.
