Former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) couldn't help but chuckle at President Donald Trump's low turnout at the BOK Center in Tulsa on Saturday. But Franken took it a step further, investigating the crowd count for concerts at the BOK Center in 2019 before COVID-19.


According to Franken, pianist and composer John Tesh scored a much larger crowd to hear his easy-listening sounds over the president's rants.

He also cited the 1960s and 70s doo-wop group Sha Na Na, The Pips (but without Gladys Knight), Canadian hard rock band Loverboy and The West Virginia Touring Company of La Traviata, a three-act Opera in Italian from 1853 by Giuseppe Verdi.

It was the John Tesh, however, that earned the president considerably mockery.
