"What I worry about right now, as we speak, in restaurants and in offices all over this country where you have bosses who are not famous, there is harassment of women and women are being intimidated". "So I would hope that maybe the president of the United States might pay attention to what going on and also think about resigning".

The "CBS This Morning" hosts asked Sanders on Thursday to compare allegations of sexual misconduct against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore as well as Franken, but Sanders said that he wanted to elevate the conversation to another level - by invoking allegations against Trump.

However, Franken might be the most prominent leader to find himself accused of sexual allegations in recent months, but he's not alone.

The allegations against Trump have been made by 13 women and range from non-consensual groping and kissing to outright sexual assault.

Trump has recently denied that it was him in a 2005 video where he was reportedly recorded bragging about crude and degrading behavior toward women, even though he directly confirmed the remarks and apologized for them a month before the presidential election previous year. "We need a cultural revolution in this country", said Sanders.

Sanders posted similar remarks on Twitter. Sanders recommended that the people of Minnesota should be the ones to decide if Sen. Franken apologized to some of his accusers while denying several of the allegations, according to Time.

Later that day, Franken announced on the Senate floor that he would resign after dozens of his Democratic colleagues called for him to step down. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., who also called for Franken to resign, attended Franken's speech.
