Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is facing intense scrutiny for his past behavior after a Los Angeles news anchor accused him of sexually assaulting her on Thursday while the two toured the Middle East in 2006.
One of Franken’s most controversial moments that is now under the spotlight centers around a “comedy” bit he did at a 2000 Comedy Central Roast of Rob Reiner.
“On a typical night, Carl [Reiner] would slip into Rob’s bed, roll him over, swab him down and say something like, ‘I’m thinking about hiring Morey Amsterdam to play Buddy Sorrell, what do you think?’” Franken said.
“Well, the success of The Dick Van Dyke Show changed things dramatically, Carl started inviting many of his famous friends to fuck his son,” Franken continued as Reiner laughed. “That list includes some of the greats in comedy: Paul Lynde, Dom DeLuise, Rip Taylor, Danny Kaye, Charles Nelson Reilly and Rock Hudson — whom, I frankly don’t think is that funny.”
