Al Franken: "Without Rush, there's no Trump"

That Trippi Show

The only former US Senator currently on a comedy tour joins the show to talk about what he's doing to help Democrats win this year -- and how you can help too. How did we get this far down the road - and why has today's ultra-MAGA GOP become what it is? Plus - what's Al's solution to fix the Senate and reform the filibuster? And Al gives Dems some advice on how to win this fall -- while tossing in a pretty damn good Mitch McConnell impression.

Ep. 488 — Al Franken

The Axe Files with David Axelrod

Al Franken has been in the public eye for decades, first as a comedian and then as a senator from Minnesota. Since he resigned from the Senate in 2018 amid sexual harassment allegations—that he has denied—he has mostly stayed out of the spotlight. He talks to David about his transition from comedy to politics, his departure from the Senate and his subsequent battle with depression, whether he might run for office again, and his touring comedy show, “The Only Former U.S. Senator Currently on Tour Tour.”To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
