"Sexual harassment should be a nonpartisan issue," Meyers said. "And yet, many Republicans have tried to cynically exploit the Franken scandal for political gain, while simultaneously refusing to denounce the abusers in their own party."

Franked announced his resignation Thursday after dozens of his Democratic Senate colleagues called for him to step down in the face of growing allegations of sexual misconduct. In his speech, Franken did not apologize and said he had done nothing wrong during his time as a senator. The speech also did not specify a date for stepping down.

Meyers hit Conway on Thursday for a tweet attacking Gillibrand for calling for Franken's resignation.

"Today, she joins most Democrat Senators calling for photogenic @SenFranken to resign," tweeted Conway. "Just yesterday, she wasn't so sure."

"You work for a guy who's been accused by more than 12 women of sexual harassment and assault," Meyers fired back. "Kellyanne Conway has so little self-awareness that when she walks by a mirror, she thinks there's a stranger in her house."

Meyers added that Conway "tried to have it both ways" by claiming the accusations facing Moore are troubling while still supporting him. Meyers played a clip of Conway arguing with CNN's Chris Cuomo over the allegations. In the video, Conway references CNN's famous "Apples and Bananas" promotional video.

"Our journalists and political leaders are communicating via fruit," Meyers lamented. "That's what our discourse has come to."
