Louisiana Republican Sen. John Kennedy slammed “The Squad” in an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News, and had his own unique way of describing them.
Referring to the four Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) who are all members of a group called the “Justice Democrats,” Kennedy was fierce in his defense of President Trump.
“I don’t think President Trump is a racist, I don’t think his original tweet was racist,” he said, adding he feels it was just a poor choice of words and said Trump had corrected his words when he explained his tweets, saying we live in a free country. “This is not China, this is America, and in America, if you hate our country, you’re free to leave,” said Trump, according to Kennedy.
The radical left-wing congresswomen were the focus of Trump’s weekend tweets when he called them out for “hating” America saying they were “anti-Semitic and anti-American, then suggested they “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came.”
Kennedy told Carlson on Tuesday the four are “destroying the Democratic party,”
“I’m appalled that so many of our presidential candidates are falling all over themselves to try to agree with the “Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse.” They are entitled to their opinion, but I’m entitled to say that they’re whackjobs. The simple fact of the matter is, the four congresswomen think that America was wicked in its origins. They think that America and its people are even more wicked now, that we are all racist and misogynistic and evil,” said Kennedy.
“They’re entitled to their opinion. They’re Americans. But I’m entitled to my opinion, and I just think they’re left-wing cracks, and they’re the reason there are directions on a shampoo bottle. I think we should ignore them.”
Trump’s tweet on the weekend summed the four up, “These women have said horrible things about our country and the people of our country. Nobody should be able to do that, and if they want to do that, that’s up to them,” Trump said on Friday as he left for New Jersey. “But I can’t imagine they’re going to do very well at the polls.”
Kennedy said to continue calling the president “racist” is not the way to get elected to the top job, “Never interrupt your opponent when they’re screwing up,” adding, “I think the American people are getting a little tired of it.”
Tucker Carlson says no one should be a lawmaker if they cannot support their country, “The Democratic Party has decided to defend these lunatics, no matter what. Which means the party now owns their positions: the American people are racist. Borders are immoral. The United States is no different from Al Qaeda or Nazi Germany. Is that a message Democrats can win on? We’re about to find out,” said the FNC host.
