Sen. Al Franken: ‘I don’t want to be president’

“A wise man once said that healthcare is complicated. And of course, that wise man was quoting President Trump.”

Appearing Tuesday on ABC News’ “Powerhouse Politics” podcast, Sen. Al Franken didn’t pull any punches during a wide-ranging interview that covered health care, the special counsel’s investigation and his potential political ambitions. “This is a sham,” said the Minnesota Democrat, in regards to Senate Republicans’ attempts to pass their version of the American Health Care Act. “It’s not just Democrats that haven’t seen this. Most Republicans haven’t seen it either.”

Ever the comedian, the former “Saturday Night Live” cast member then jabbed President Trump and House Republicans for their post-AHCA passage celebration in the White House Rose Garden last month, calling it, sardonically, the “unprecedented celebrating of one house passing a bill.”
