Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) harshly criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CAlif.) for the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump.
“I don’t mean any disrespect, but it must suck to be that dumb,” Kennedy said during a rally in support of the president’s re-election in Louisiana on Nov. 6, according to MSNBC.

The comment was made after Kennedy reminded the audience of some of President Trump’s accomplishments.
“In three short years, President Trump has doubled the growth in the greatest economy in all of human history,” he said.
Two days later Kennedy expanded his statements to Fox News by saying that the process led by Pelosi is not only foolish but also dangerous for the nation.
He also added that the impeachment would be detrimental to the country, and stressed the importance of respecting due process.
“Due process should matter. And, I think Speaker Pelosi intends to give the president a fair and impartial firing squad and she made up her mind before she saw the facts,” Kennedy emphasized, according to News Punch.
The process that the Democrats have set in motion to try to oust President Trump, because of the supposed pressure he would have exerted on the Ukrainian president, has irregularities that call into question its validity and constitutionality.
Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-N.C.) said: “This is an unfair process being driven by sore losers. There’s not one Republican vote in the United States Senate to impeach President Trump based on this phone call because he did nothing wrong,” according to Fox News.
President Trump has been accused by Democratic lawmakers, who claim he would have asked the Ukrainian president for a “favor” to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is his political rival in the 2020 elections.
With respect to the Ukraine Case, the White House emphatically denied the accusations made against the president and, in fact, published transcripts of the talks between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
The conversation shows that Trump did not pressure or offer any kind of economic retribution to Ukraine to investigate the son of Joe Biden, who was involved in a case of corruption of the main gas company of the European country.
