Just hours after announcing he was suspending his presidential campaign, "Herman Cain" stopped by Saturday Night Live to shed some additional insight on his decision to leave the GOP race.
Denying again during the show's "Weekend Update" segment that he had an extramarital affair with Ginger White, he explained: "The truth is that Ginger White and I are friends. And yes I gave her money, because that's what friends do. Seth, you and I are friends right?" Giving host Seth Myers a wad of cash, Cain hinted, "Now, you know that money ain't free..."
Cain said even though they were false, the allegations were preventing him from running an effective campaign, and said the media were largely to blame. That said, he knows there are still women out there who support him.
Addressing the ladies, he implored, "instead of bending for the media...why don't you bend for Herman Cain?"
"I know in my heart that there are so many women out there who are still ready to get on the Cain train," he continued. "I'm asking all the ladies tonight to line up, and jump on my train."
