During the testimony at his confirmation hearing, one time Republican candidate and Trump rival, Rick Perry, and now Trump’s choice to lead the Department of Energy — exchanged pleasantries with the Democratic senator.
“Did you enjoy meeting me?” Franken asked.
“I hope you are as much fun on that dias as you were on your couch,” Perry replied.
“Well—” Franken began before hesitating as Perry’s words sunk in and the crowd erupted in laughter.
“May I rephrase that, sir?” Perry interjected.
“Please, please, please,” Franken said. “Oh my lord, oh my lord.”
A highly amused Perry replied, “Well, I think we found our ‘Saturday Night Live’ soundbite.”
Franken, who was once an ‘SNL’ cast member, laughed in response.
