Between security concerns around China – including the TikTok app, which is owned by a Chinese company – and the failure of Silicon Valley Bank, Mark Warner is one busy senator. The Virginia Democrat is chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and a member of the Senate Banking Committee, and has been in the news lately. A lot.

Thus, the timing of our Monitor Breakfast last Monday couldn’t have been better. But after the greetings and introduction, what was top of mind for Senator Warner? Adam Sandler’s appearance the night before at the Kennedy Center as winner of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

When the show airs Sunday night on CNN, “they’re gonna have to bleep out every third word,” Mr. Warner said to reporters’ laughter.
