U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) didn't pull any punches when asked Monday afternoon about the recent raft of sexual harassment allegations across the nation, including those against prominent lawmakers like Sen. Al Franken and Alabama candidate Roy Moore. 

Kennedy said he'd like to see the facts presented by an ethics investigation before deciding whether to call for Franken's resignation, or Moore's if he were to win his race. Moore has been accused of pursuing relationships with teenagers as well as assault, while Franken (D-Minn.) has been accused of groping women. 

"But I don't have sympathy for people who act like pigs," he said Monday when approached by reporters. "I don't. It's wrong." 

Kennedy said he'd expect a similar investigation into Moore's actions if he is indeed elected in Alabama. 

"I don't even know when they have time to make movies in Hollywood because it looks like they're all busy molesting each other," he said. "But now we know it's on Capitol Hill, we know it's in the business community.

"I guess I'm just naive. But I had no idea there were this many pigs in the world. And to all of them, I would say we're all human and all that, and I'm not saying we shouldn't extend them grace, but extending grace to people doesn't mean you don't have to face the consequences. And there is no excuse for this. None, zero, nada. You can pretty it up all you want to, it's still a pig."
