Does Sanders Think Al Franken Was Joking When He Sexually Assaulted Women?

“Al is a friend of mine, and we miss him very, very much,” Sanders said. “I guess what the issue is about is we have got to be aggressive in making certain that women, when they are on the job, feel safe and comfortable on the job.”

“On the other hand, if somebody you know says a dumb joke, you know, that has to be put in an overall context,” Sanders said.
