The New York Times reported last month that Klobuchar once ate a salad with her comb and ordered one of her aides to clean it after a staffer didn't get her a fork.
 
The anecdote was included in a story describing Klobuchar's alleged past mistreatment of members of her staff. The story was one of several recent reports looking into that trend.
 
“I know I can be tough, I know I can push people too hard, and I also know I can do better — and I will,” Klobuchar said in a statement addressing the reports on Friday.
 
CNN also reported that Klobuchar addressed those reports during her remarks at the Gridiron dinner.
 
"So when Jerry called me about tonight, he asked, 'Do you need a microphone or do you just prefer to yell at everyone?' " she said. "I said microphone."
 
Klobuchar last month announced that she will be seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. She is one of several senators to have entered the race, along with Sens.
