"Because I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and God-darnit people like me. #Franken," Trump Jr. tweeted. The quote is a reference to Franken's "SNL" character Stuart Smalley, who hosted the show's recurring sketch "Daily Affirmations With Stuart Smalley." 

Franken also wrote a book in character as Smalley, titled "I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, & Doggone It, People Like Me!"

The tweet follows Franken's announced resignation from the Senate, which comes after increasing pressure from his Democratic colleagues to step down amid a number of sexual misconduct allegations.

“I know in my heart that nothing I have done as a senator, nothing, has brought dishonor on this institution, and I am confident that the Ethics Committee would agree. Nevertheless, today I am announcing that in the coming weeks I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate,” Franken said in a speech on the Senate floor. 

Franken is the latest high-profile man to depart his job amid sexual misconduct allegations.
