Herman Cain Tells Jimmy Kimmel He's Taking Sexual Harassment Charges 'Head On': VIDEO


Herman Cain showed up on Jimmy Kimmel Live hours after Sharon Bialek accused the Republican presidential candidate of sexual harassment and assault.

Said Cain to Kimmel:

"All things considered, I'm still alive. We had a little surprise to show up on TV. We didn't even know this whole thing about 'Woman #4' was going to come out. This one actually had a name and a face...We are taking this head on."

Kimmel responds, later, "I don't know you, I don't know this woman, I don't know these anonymous women, but first of all, thank you for making this election a lot more interesting than talking about just the economy. To you it's a distraction, but to me it's my life."

Cain discussed why he thinks he's been running strong in the polls, why he's raised $2 million in the last two weeks, and the bizarre Mark Block 'smoking' ad.

Cain also tells Kimmel that he has never smoked pot, judges the latest pizza from Godfather's, and compares the state of the American economy to a frog in boiling water.

  4. LOL @ David... yeah, he's "articulate". He's probably also "clean" and "so well-spoken".

  5. @The Milkman - they just can't help it, even when they think they're being complimentary, can they??

    Cain is a waste of space and a sputtering train. Thank you Towleroad for presenting a synopsis of the interview at the top so I don't need to hear his act again. SO ready for him to be done (and if its not these women, it will be the financial issues that grind this thing to a halt pretty soon...)

  6. Remember he's leading in all of the major polls and the first caucus/primary is less than 2 months away. Huntsman, Bachmann, Perry, Paul would kill to be in his position right now. Not a chance he could beat Obama though.

  11. In response to the ignorant reactions to Cain's "smoking ad," nationally recognized Smokers' Rights group releases a video explaining Cain's ideal of the anti-nanny state: "Cain Campaign for Dummies."
