Sen. Amy Klobuchar to appear on 'The Daily Show' tonight
August 22, 2017 — 5:57pm
Looking for something to watch on TV after dinner? Sen. Amy Klobuchar will appear on "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" at 10 p.n. CT today.
Klobuchar said the show approached her months ago. She'll be the second Minnesota politician in recent months to appear, after Rep. Ilhan Omar came on in July to talk about her trajectory from refugee to the first Somali-American state lawmaker.
The senator hasn't detailed what she'll talk about on the show, though Klobuchar will likely address what it's like trying to get anything done amid a tumultous time in Washington--from getting answers in the federal probe into Russian meddling in the presidential election to trying to pass less polarizing legislation on lowering prescription drug costs to pushing back on the GOP healthcare overhaul.
Noah may also ask about any 2020 presidential aspirations-- Politico recently reported that Trump's reelection team has already started tracking a list of possible Democratic candidates that includes Klobuchar.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
