THINGS GOT REALLY AWKWARD WHEN Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) moved to ask Rick Perry questions about his nomination to be Donald Trump‘s Secretary of Energy:

Franken asked Perry if he enjoyed a meeting they recently had at his office:

Franken: “Thank you so much for coming into my office. Did you enjoy meeting me?”

Perry: “I hope you’re as much fun on that dias as you were on your couch.”

And it all went downhill from there…

A rare lighthearted moment in DC!
