In the few remaining days where Trump’s controversial tweets will still be talked about, you must be able to appreciate when someone delivers a spot-on burn. Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy nailed it last night while appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News.
“I don’t think President Trump is a racist. I don’t think his original tweet was racist. I think it was a poor choice of words, which is why he clarified,” Kennedy said, pointing out that Trump has since said that anyone who hates America is free to leave.
“I’m not sure the president should exchange playground insults with them. When you try to argue with a fool, that proves there are two. But the president decided to do so,” Kennedy continued. “The simple fact of the matter is that the four congresswomen think that America was wicked in its origins.”
“They are entitled to their opinion. They are Americans. But I’m entitled to my opinion, and I just think they are left-wing cranks and they are the reason that there are directions on a shampoo bottle,” Kennedy said. “I think we should ignore them.” [emphasis mine]

As Tucker Carlson noted, I believe it’s hard to ignore these four congresswomen because of the influence they’ve managed to exert over their party, shift if further to the left, but Senator Kennedy’s assessment of “The Squad’s” intelligence was perfect. As far as I’m concerned, listening to AOC speak is like watching Clueless, except it’s not funny because people actually voted for her, and three-quarters of Democrats would vote for her for president.
