HBO's popular late-night political satirist Bill Maher defended U.S. Senator Al Franken, who is currently accused of sexual harrassment, on the latest episode of his show "Real Time." 

Als a friend, but Al- I got to tell you, if you write a comedy sketch where you, Al Franken, kiss a model and her next line of dialogue isnt Get off of me, creepy! its not comedy, its science fiction," Maher joked.

Maher continued on a more serious note, comparing the allegations against Franken to others that are currently making headlines. 

What he doesnt deserve is to be lumped in with Roy Moore," Maher said. Or Kevin Spacey! Or Harvey Weinstein! Or Donald Trump!
