PHILADELPHIA — Sen. Al Franken returned to his comedy roots Monday, taking swipes at Donald Trump's business record in a Democratic National Convention address.
The Minnesota lawmaker and "Saturday Night Live" veteran said he knew Trump was a "right-wing megalomaniac" because he earned a doctorate in "megalomania studies" from Trump University, the program that has prompted fraud claims against Trump. Franken also joked that the school had a strong "bankruptcy program," referencing the Republican presidential nominee's use of the practices in the past.
"Clearly, Donald Trump's enormous, dare I say "huge," success as a businessman qualifies him to be president. And if you believe that, I've got some delicious Trump Steaks I'd like to sell you," Franken said to laughs and applause, referencing one of Trump's past products.
He took a more serious tone, though, in saying he has "never met anyone smarter, tougher, or more ready to lead us forward" than presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
"I am proud to call Hillary Clinton my friend. And I can't wait to call her Madam President," Franken said.
He also joked that officials and volunteers working to elect Clinton should work so hard that they ignore their families.
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Franken's speech.
