SNL Alum Tim Meadows: I Was ‘Surprised’ by Allegations Against Franken

SNL alum Tim Meadows talked about the accusations against Senator (and fellow SNL alum) Al Franken during an appearance on Cheddar today.

J.D. Durkin (a Mediaite alum, and yes we’re done with the word alum now) asked Meadows not just about the women speaking out against Franken, but the letter defending him released by women who worked with him on SNL.

Meadows said “I feel like it’ll play itself out” and said, speaking from his personal experience, he’s known Franken as a “respectful” person.

And he said he was “surprised” by the recent news.

As for the letter, Meadows said he didn’t read it, but added, “I’m glad the women that worked with him came to his defense, because just from what I know personally, he deserves it. He’s really a great guy.”

He also spoke more broadly
