During an appearance on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Janeane Garofalo said, “Anthony Weiner deserves to be supported and hopefully he will be mayor of New York one day. I’m serious. He is a Democrat [who] actually fights for the things liberals and progressive and rational people care about.
“I don’t know why he’s being thrown under the bus. He hasn’t done any — he hasn’t broke any laws,” she said.
The Saturday Night Live alum, who has appeared in the television shows “24,” “The West Wing” and “The Larry Sanders Show,” added, “Everyone lies about sex. [Weiner’s controversy] has not impacted anyone’s life negatively.”
“She didn’t look 17!” is now an acceptable excuse with Garofalo — coming from a fellow progressive, anyway.
