“The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert blasted Al Franken Wednesday after a sixth woman came forward and accused the Minnesota senator of sexual misconduct.

“It seems like every day a new man is accused of sexual misconduct,” Colbert began already said at the beginning of his show. “But not today. Today is the same man.”

Colbert detailed the last statement made by a woman who accused the Democratic senator of pursuing her in 2006 and tries to kiss her, but she ducked. Franks reportedly told the woman it was his “right as an entertainer.”

“No, that’s not it,” Colbert joked. “I’m an entertainer, and I happen to always have a copy of the Bill of Rights for artists.”

Colbert then read a list of rights of entertainers, including going on the rides in Disneyland for children, the skip of the security at the airport and getting free stuff from Apple.

“Now, Franken says this assertion is categorically not true, but this accusation seems to be the straw that fondled the camel’s back,” Colbert joked.

Franken is expected to announce Thursday whether or not he will retire after the mounting allegations.
