MANCHESTER, N.H.— Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar has found herself in several awkward moments during her CNN town hall.

Klobuchar has been trying to show her sense of humor during the televised appearance but quickly drew social media attention Monday night for the moments, including one on prescription drugs in which she evoked 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Klobuchar says, “We should bring in less expensive drugs from other countries like Canada. We can see practically see Canada from our porch when we’re up here.”

At another point, after noting her electoral success in purple-state Minnesota, she quipped, “It’s when you guys are supposed to cheer, OK?”

She also referenced a notable moment during a 2016 presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, saying she could feel town hall anchor Chris Cuomo “creeping over my shoulder…not in a Trumpian manner.”
