LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- U.S. comic actor Rob Schneider says he doesn't think much of fellow "Saturday Night Live" alumnus, Sen. Al Franken, but his complete comment was bleeped.

The Hollywood Reporter said Schneider appeared on HLN's "The Joy Behar Show" Thursday when fill-in host Shaun Robinson asked him to apologize for creating the SNL character, "The Richmeister."

The character hangs out around the Xerox machine and talks about "making copies."

"People are still doing that when they're going to the copy machine," Robinson told Schneider.

While explaining how he created the character, the Reporter said, Schneider mentioned Franken, now a Democratic senator from Minnesota, saying "You, the Senator Al Franken. You know what a (bleep) he is."

The Reporter said even though the word was bleeped out, it appeared to start with a "W" and rhyme with "door."

Schneider followed up the slam by saying, "I actually mean that." Robinson didn't pursue the subject, the report said, so Schneider didn't elaborate.

Both Schneider and Franken are left-wing, the Reporter said, so it couldn't be political differences.
