Franken: ‘Hillary Will ... Be a Great President’ and ‘May Nominate One or Two S.C. Justices’

‘I think that we will come to the convention united and that Hillary will win the general election and be a great president’

RUSH TRANCRIPT:

MITCHELL: “And finally, given what the results were last night, is Hillary Clinton going to be the nominee? Does she have vulnerability in terms of her ability to attract young people and independents in a general election?”

FRANKEN: “Hillary will be the nominee. I think we found that out last night. Certainly Senator Sanders should continue the race as long as he sees fit, but I’m big Hillary backer. I think she is the most experienced, the toughest, the smartest, hardest working person I know and would make a great president. I think that we will come to the convention united and that Hillary will win the general election and be a great president and probably may nominate one or two supreme court justices herself.”

MITCHELL: “And you think she can campaign against Donald Trump given how unpredictable he is in terms of his campaign style?”

FRANKEN: “I think his unpredictability has been his strength, but I also think part of it is his weakness. I think a majority of the American people have very, very large doubts about Donald Trump and seeing that guy in the White House, given what he said about Mexicans and Muslims and his appeal, I think, that — not appealing to the best in Americans.”

MITCHELL: “Al Franken, thank you so much, senator. Thanks for being with us today.”

FRANKEN: “Thank you, Andrea.”
