Senator Al Franken held a very brief press conference earlier to address allegations that he groped several women. While Franken offered a statement in which he said he let people down while at the same time saying he remembers things differently than some of his accusers, something else about the scene was noticed:

How’s this for irony:
Ironic that Franken has the Charlie Rose lighting thing going on here

Maybe lighting this like a Spalding Gray monologue was designed to make this statement seem more weighty than it was. https://t.co/BaQ9iEmpUL

Should Al Franken fire his lighting guy or is the darkness and duality supposed to be telling us women something? pic.twitter.com/g7ackRC2Jp
