Al Franken: Same lies, Different Venue
Last week Al Franken appeared on Conan O'Brien to do what else, attack the very people he's parasitically made millions off of.
Below is what he said of Sean Hannity:
From there, looking for the trifecta, O’Brien immediately asked Franken about Sean Hannity. Franken’s response: “I don’t like his show particularly, and I don’t really like him.” He then related a story about a discussion that he had with Hannity at last year’s Democratic convention:
“And, I said something like, ‘You know, my wife says to me you don’t see Sean Hannity going on any USO tours to Iraq. And I said, ‘Honey, that’s not fair. He has no talent.’ And Sean says to me, ‘That’s not funny.’ And I said, ‘Yes it is.’” (Laughter).
The truth is, and it's in my book, is that Franken lashed out at Hannity during his interview at the Democrat convention because Sean said that his criticism of Clinton's bombing of Kosovo was not as bad as the Democrat rhetoric against President Bush's war efforts.
Franken then yelled at him: "How many USO tours have you done?"
Franken NEVER said, "my wife said..."
He's repeated this lie/joke before. most recently when he appeared on David Letterman over the summer.
