In an interview with WABC radio host Rita Cosby Friday afternoon, Hillary Clinton came to Al Franken’s defense saying that her “friend” is doing all the right things in the wake of his scandal and that he does not need to resign.

From the New York Daily News:

The former secretary of state chatted with WABC radio host Rita Cosby in a sweeping Friday afternoon interview centered on sexual impropriety in politics, fielding questions about GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore, President Trump, her husband and Democratic Sen. Al Franken.

“He’s a good friend of mine and I deeply regret what he did. There’s no excuse for his behavior but he has called for an investigation and apologized to the woman involved,” Clinton said. “Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump who have done neither.”

She continued, “There’s a double standard: the Republicans deny, deny, deny and divert, divert, divert and they get away with it because the press is more concerned about someone who accepted responsibility than people who refuse to take responsibility.”

Hillary is a hypocrite talking about double standards and not taking responsibility when her husband, former president Bill Clinton, has yet to acknowledge his actions towards the women he abused.
