Kennedy Blasts AOC and Her Squad as Being the ‘Reason There are Directions’ on Shampoo Bottles

Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) blasted freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her squad as the kind of people who need to read the directions on a shampoo bottle.

A man of many words, Kennedy went after the squad during a Tuesday interview on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” when he was asked for his thoughts on the recent tweets from President Donald Trump that started a public spat between him and Democratic congresswomen.

As IJR News previously reported, the president published tweets on Sunday telling a group of progressive congresswomen — appearing to refer to Ocasio-Cortez, Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) — to “go back” to their home countries and “fix” them.

Kennedy said he was reluctant to “contribute to this freak show” and that he did not believe Trump nor his “original tweet” was “racist,” adding that he believes the president made a “poor choice of words” with the tweets.

Watch the video here:

He continued on to say that he did not believe Trump “should exchange playground insults” with the squad and that “when you argue with the fool, that proves there are two,” before torching the four congresswomen as thinking “America was wicked in its origins.”

Kennedy then brought down the hammer on the group, saying they “are entitled to their opinion” as Americans, just as he is, and clocking them as “the reason” shampoo bottles have instructions on them.

“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 quipped.

“I think we should ignore them,” the Louisiana Republican added.

The president also tweeted out Kennedy’s remarks early Wednesday morning.

Kennedy’s comments came as multiple lawmakers from across the aisle spoke out against Trump’s tweets.

As IJR Red noted, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) blasted both sides of the aisle for going after the “lowest common denominator” by tying race into their public arguments.

“No matter our political disagreements, aiming for the lowest common denominator will only divide our nation further,” wrote Scott in a press release.

Senator Scott had a chance to call out the race-baiters, but instead, he did the cowardly thing of trying to find fault in both sides. Ascribing racist motives to Trump is an odious DemCommunist tactic that every decent person should denounce–not contribute to. Senator Scott has been a voice of reason for so long, but he’s also had enough time to be poisoned by the pervasive foolishness in D.C. Scott totally missed on this one.

I think they are a disgrace to this Country and are just seeding people’s anger. We are ALL upset with their “Socialistic” remarks and trouble making antics. They are like silly little girls. I agree with President Trump, we do not them and they should be expelled from their office and go home and stay out of politics. Enough is Enough!!

Graham used to be the best comedian in Congress but Sen Kennedy has replaced him.

The only semi obvious reference in the tweets is to Ilhan Omar. The other three are included because without them the dems have nothing to criticize.

Thank god for these men of reason. Trump is a great man but not a PC perfect person. I don’t care. I care that there are hiring signs all over the country. I know I’m traveling. Leave our president to do what he does best, build a safe and strong country!!!

I am not a racist but I dislike them because they are and they also support terrorist groups that hate me and America. In fact their support for Hamas, The Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah are treasonous. They should be impeached for those reasons.
