Comedian Sarah Silverman says that while producing her Hulu series, she met many supporters of President Trump and people with opinions different from her own — and had a "great time" with them.

“When you’re one-on-one with someone who doesn’t agree with you, or whose ideology is different than yours, when you’re face-to-face, your porcupine needles go down,” said Silverman, who headlines "I Love You, America," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“The surprise was … I fell in love with them. I had a great time with them and I felt comfortable.

Silverman said she always tries to be open and "engage with someone who is angry at me." 

"Because more than anything, all of us, what we have in common is, we want to feel seen. We want to feel like we exist," she said.

Still, Silverman went after Trump himself.

"We're waiting for him to hit bottom," she said. "There’s no bottom. It’s bottomless."

Silverman also commented on the growing number of women coming forward to allege sexual misconduct against men in power.

“It seems to me that we’re going through a moment in time that’s vital, and there will be detritus,” she said.

“I think it’s a kind of putting a healthy fear in men … It has to change, so that’s why things have to be hard right now, and people should be afraid and think before they act. That’s a good thing.”
