NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Minnesota Senator Al Franken showed his sense of humor, taking his shtick to late night television in response to President Trump’s tweeting.

The panel also wanted to give a Capitol Report shout out to Danbury mayor and potential Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark Boughton. Boughton is recovering from surgery that removed a benign cyst from his brain that was the size of a lemon.
