“We’ve taught our children, by looking at politicians, is the ones that take responsibility for their actions lose, and the ones that deny, deny, deny and lie, and don’t admit any wrongdoing, and don’t say sorry, they don’t have to lose their jobs,” the comedian told TMZ in a Monday interview.

“Like our president,” Silverman added.

“We have a president who has — what, 20 women who’ve accused him of sexual assault. This is what our children are learning,” Silverman said.


During the 2016 presidential campaign, more than a dozen women accused Trump of sexual misconduct, with allegations dating back years before the New York real estate mogul entered politics. Trump has repeatedly denied the accusations.

The Minnesota Democrat and “Saturday Night Live” alum announced last month that he was stepping down following allegations of sexual misconduct from several women.

“I happen to know him for decades and decades and I can tell you that all he cares about is the well-being of the lives of his constituents of Minnesota,” Silverman, 47, said of Franken. “It’s all he thinks about, all he cares about. And his wife.”

“Listen, this is the truth for these women,” Silverman said, before adding of the 66-year-old ex-senator, “He kisses on the lips, but not with an open mouth.”

“He’s a dad,” she exclaimed.

“But listen, I wasn’t there …. I can’t speak to it. It does make me sad.”
