"Sen. Al Franken on 'horrific' House health care bill, questioning Jeff Sessions and comparing the Senate to SNL" PBS NewsHour 5/31/2017


SUMMARY:  Political satire demands a different set of skills from actually practicing politics.  Minnesota Sen. Al Franken explains what it's really like to transition from entertainment to government in his new book, “Al Franken: Giant of the Senate.”  Hari Sreenivasan sits down with Franken to discuss reports about Jared Kushner, Republican efforts to replace Obamacare, who's funny in the Senate, and more.
