Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar is announcing her run for the presidency, and she is doing so from her home state, where it is very cold.
Like 15 degrees.
If nothing else, Amy Klobuchar earns my respect for announcing her 2020 presidential campaign in the midst of a snowstorm in freezing cold Minnesota. pic.twitter.com/jyEKtPZKvL

But that isn’t the only problem that Klobuchar faces.
Just days before the initiation of her candidacy, reports were published containing accounts of “demeaning emails, thrown office supplies and requests for staff to perform personal chores” by former office staff of hers.
Amy Klobuchar’s mistreatment of her office staff began more than a decade ago and eventually caused such concerns that Harry Reid asked her privately to cut it out. New from me and @aterkel: https://t.co/6w7ISGPi81

And, of course, the jokes.
Imagine being the Klobuchar staffer responsible for this weather.

The top three officials in Virginia (all Democrats) are embroiled in scandals.
Elizabeth Warren has now been caught falsely claiming she was American-Indian on her application to the Texas State Bar.
And, Amy Klobuchar has reportedly been throwing binders at her staff.
But Republicans pounce!
