Barney Frank Farts on Air. Here is Massachusetts Representative Barney Frank farting on Rachel Maddow's TV show on MSNBC. The fart seems audible as the flatulent Frank shuffles in his seat and passes gas as he speaks about Democrat efforts to control out-of-control Federal Spending. It seems that talking about the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform Bill causes a dirty underwear event for Mr. Frank. The Barney Frank Fart clip originally appeared on MSNBC. Is Barney farting?
