I totally see it as a photo op improv for a picture Franken thought would be talked about for years. But not in this way!
The man is an actor. For many, in public means in character, role playing. They can't turn it off. He was improvising. Problem is when the OP don't know you're improvising, the breakdown in communication is likely to lead to misunderstanding, and that's what I believe we have here.

SNL is edgy. Anything goes.

Franken's intent was decidedly, grossly contrary to the many cases filed against Trump, that involved no camera, no photo op, he and the defendant alone, and the settlement sealed. At least sixteen of them, all sealed. Why?

Same reason he didn't disclose his tax returns. He is so dishonest, he isn't even who he is and appears to be. Franken may be somewhat stupid. But Trump is treacherous.

        • It takes only a fraction of a second to snap the photo once you press the button.
          • Granted. I get it. The surprise PH👀EY, Thu Nov 23 9:25am
            while her hubby snaps the pic. But SHE let the moment slip away. She failed to simply say "Al, you old pervert, keep your hands to yourself." "And thanks for posing with me." No, these sad creatures... more

          She was in "shock." LOLs..... Did she ever ask for an apology from him prior to going pubic?
