On Monday night, CNN held some town halls featuring various Democrat candidates for president. One of those town halls featured Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who regaled the audience with a story, and when it was apparent that her short anecdote wasn’t sufficiently appreciated, Klobuchar acted as her own “applause” sign:

Klobuchar should be careful or she might get sued by Jeb for copyright infringement!
If you do not clap for me, you will be beaten!

That might not be worse than Bernie Sanders’ plan to increase voter turnout, but it was certainly cringe-worthy.
