The DNC Convention officially kicked off on Monday night and Senator Al Franken brought the house down on Donald Trump’s big head.
The Minnesota Senator put his comedic chops to effective use during his speech and he mercilessly cut down the Republican nominee with joke after joke much to the delight of the massive audience.
“I’m Al Franken, Minnesotan, Senator, and world reknowned expert on right-wing megalomaniacs: Rush Limbaugh. Bill O’Reilly. And now Donald Trump,” Franken began.
I got my doctorate in megalomania studies from Trump University. Sure I had to empty out my 401k and take out a reverse mortgage on my house to pay tuition, but Mr. Trump or some people who claim to have once met him convinced me it was worth it. Sure, he’s scammed a lot of people, but did you know that the Trump University School of Ripping People Off is ranked second in the nation — right behind Bernie Madoff University?
As you may recall, Bernie Madoff is infamous for running a giant ponzi scheme which he is now in prison for.
“Trump University…is also about learning directly from ‘success experts’ like Scott Baio, Mike Tyson and, of course, a life-sized cutout of Mr. Trump himself,” Franken continued. “Now of course Trump University wouldn’t be Trump University without its business school. Their bankruptcy program in particular is known throughout the real estate investment community for its creativity…Bankruptcy 101 being taught by the card-board cut-out itself.”
The pride of Trump University, of course, is its library, located on a shelf in a closet on the third floor of Trump Tower. All of Mr. Trump’s bestsellers are available for a special rate for students which is ten percent higher than the retail price. Clearly Donald Trump’s huge success as a businessman qualifies him to be president and if you believe that I’ve got some delicious Trump steaks to sell you.
Franken then went on to urge Americans to vote for Hillary Clinton instead of a candidate who only cares about himself.

The Democrats asked a comedian-turned Senator to lead off the show and it paid off big time.
