Senator John Kennedy has never been one to mince words, but this was about as blunt and honest as it can get. At political rallies, like the one recently held in Louisiana in support of gubernatorial candidate Eddie Rispone, those rallies can look and sound more like a roast than a rally. The President and Senator John Kennedy (R-La.), teamed up at the rally as the Republicans are looking to flip the state, and it appeared as though the Senator was fired up.
Using colorful verbiage like “unless you are happy with crappy, I want you to vote for Eddie Rispone for governor,” the Senator’s aim didn’t rest only on the Louisiana governor’s seat. In a very Trump-like and blunt torch of Nancy Pelosi, and almost void of any political correctness, Senator Kennedy shared his thoughts regarding the Speaker of the House.
The truth is that the Senator was only saying what so many have been thinking, both politician and non-politician alike. According to the story, Senator Kennedy saved his most seething and smarting comments for Pelosi. He began by highlighting one of President Trump’s greatest achievements during his first term, the economy.
“In three short years, President Trump has doubled the growth in the greatest economy in all of human history. And do you know what our Democratic friends have done for him?” Senator Kennedy asked.
Then he answered his own question by responding and directly naming the target of his verbal assault saying, “Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to impeach him.” At this point, based on the reports, the frenzied crowd at the rally began booing.
Then Kennedy threw his punch and said, “I don’t mean any disrespect, but it must suck to be that dumb,” much to the pleasure of the pro-Trump crowd. The Senator has never been shy about voicing his opinion but he seemed to be in rare form this night. While his choice of words were anything but politically correct and albeit a scorching comment, “with all due respect,” how many have already thought it. Perhaps it just took someone with the passion and audacity of a John Kennedy to give it a voice.
The economy speaks for itself and the historical numbers are etching President Trump into the history books with every passing day. The immigration issue in America is finally being addressed and being done so successfully and our global trade and business relationships are getting stronger every day too. The President has done exactly what he promised, he has helped to make America better, safer, stronger – great again.
And to echo Kennedy, what have the Democrats done in response? Three years of harassment and witch hunts that have been a constant headache for the President to deal with. Could we even imagine how much farther and better off we’d be as a Nation if there was even some workability from the Left? At some point, regardless of your party affiliation or independent status, it has to be about more – about America. There has to be a point when the strength of your country is more important than the strength of your party. At some point, the health and safety of the Nation must be a greater priority than your agenda.
What Kennedy was simply saying was that if you are in the same boat and the boat is motoring along, why would you try to sink that boat? As the adage goes, you know what they call someone who is willing to cut their nose off in spite of their faces? They call them the same thing they would call someone who is willing to sell out their country for their party. They would call them the same thing they would call someone who puts partisanship before patriotism. In fact, they may say something very much like what the Senator said.
It was harsh, blunt, and not exactly politically correct but after three years, wasn’t it about time? It wasn’t nice but it wasn’t wrong either was it? Denying the success of our country, crying impeachment for three straight years, and fighting the President at every turn – do you know what that is? Come on, say it with me, that’s dumb.
