Sen. John Kennedy has a way with words and remarking on President Joe Biden’s highly criticized speech this week, told Fox News that if aliens from another planet showed up and asked to be taken to America’s leader, it would be a moment of profound embarrassment.
“The Biden administration has mismanaged COVID, it has mismanaged inflation, it has mismanaged the border, and it has mismanaged foreign policy all in one year,” Kennedy said in an interview with Sean Hannity. “If the aliens landed tomorrow, and said, ‘take me to your leader,’ it would be embarrassing. Now President Biden is trying to change the subject by talking about race. And he is mismanaging that.”
“Here with more is the great senator from the great state of Louisiana, John Kennedy is with us. Senator, so we got a president right now, Joe Biden’s approval index is minus 31 with Rasmussen. Donald Trump’s worst was minus 26. Quinnipiac has him at 33%. You see the vaccine mandate, Supreme Court didn’t go along with it,” said Hannity, introducing Kennedy.
“We’re watching disaster at our borders. We’re watching a 40-year high in inflation, the worst economic conditions. A dollar is worth seven cents fully less than it was, maybe 10 cents less, than just a year ago. Energy prices are up $1.50 a gallon. We’ll spend another $1,000 to heat our homes this winter. Everything we buy in every store we go to costs more. And I don’t think Putin and I don’t think President Xi and I don’t think the Ayatollah’s really respect Joe Biden or fear him one bit,” Hannity said.
“Well, two points, Sean,” replied Kennedy. “Number one, the Biden administration’s effort to get rid of the 60-vote threshold in the United States Senate is not about a Senate that doesn’t work; it’s about a woke agenda that doesn’t sell. Getting rid of the 60-vote threshold in the Senate, in my judgment, would be like giving whiskey and car keys to a teenage boy.”
“Point two, the Biden administration has mismanaged COVID, it has mismanaged inflation, it has mismanaged the border, and it has mismanaged foreign policy all in one year. If the aliens landed tomorrow, and said, ‘take me to your leader,’ it would be embarrassing,” he quipped.
“Now, President Biden is trying to change the subject by talking about race. And he is mismanaging that. America is not perfect. Americans know that. But they also know that we are good. Black lives have mattered to most Americans for a long time. That’s why we passed civil rights laws in 1866, 1871, 1875, 1960, 1964, 1968, 1990, and 1991. That’s why we elected an African American president twice,” said Kennedy in regards to claims that America is “racist,” as alleged by President Biden.
“That’s why we have over 10,000 elected public officials in this country who happen to be black,” Kennedy continued. “And President Biden is wrong to say that tens of millions of Americans are racist because they don’t support his woke agenda. The truth is, most Americans don’t think that much about race. They think about character. They understand that souls have no color. Most Americans understand that to a bear, we all taste like chicken. And I’m very proud of the racial progress that we’ve made in America, and President Biden should be, too. And I feel very strongly about this issue.”
