Politics Gone Sexual! Rick Perry's Cringeworthy Exchange With Al Franken
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perrys attempt to make a humorous quip to Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) might just be one of the most unintentionally hilarious things to ever happen during a Cabinet confirmation hearing. Perry, who is in the running to become President-elect Donald Trumps Secretary of Energy, had just sat down to receive questions from a group of lawmakers when Franken kicked things off with a softball question. Thank you so much for coming into my office. Did you enjoy meeting me? he asked innocently enough. Perry replied: I hope youre as much fun on that dais as you were on your couch. Franken visibly cringes when he realizes the hysterical double-entendre that Perry just served up while everyone else in the audiences begins to laugh. The humor is not lost on Perry, either. May may I rephrase that, sir? Perry jokingly asks, to which Franken emphatically replies, Please, please! Oh my lord! Perry wraps up the unsettling exchange with an astute observation: Well, I think we just found our Saturday Night Live soundbite.
