Video: Franken announces ‘hostile takeover’ of MinnPost at MinnRoast 2015

Sen. Al Franken is not happy about President Obama calling him the second funniest senator in Minnesota. After all, he’s won five Emmy Awards. How many has Sen. Amy Klobuchar won?

Awards or no awards, both U.S. senators were stars on the MinnRoast stage this year. Here for your enjoyment is a brief excerpt from Sen. Franken’s 2015 appearance, edited by videographer Steve Date. And here’s a link to Sen. Klobuchar’s. Once you see both excerpts, you decide who’s funnier.
