Senator John Kennedy spoke with Sean Hannity Monday night on the national dialogue surrounding law enforcement; saying if you “support defunding police, you’ve tested positive for stupid.”
“Most cops -many of whom happen to be black- do not get up every day and go to work hoping for the opportunity to hurt a person of color,” said Kennedy. “If you support defunding the police, you’ve tested positive for stupid.”
“It’s immeasurably foolish to resist arrest,” he added. “Cops have about 60 million encounters with Americans every year. When someone is hurt, before we assume, there’s this thing called ‘asking.’ There’s this thing called an ‘investigation.’ We need to get the facts.”

KENNEDY on HANNITY: Pelosi’s $3 TRILLION Bill is ‘Dead as Fried Chicken in the Senate’
Senator John Kennedy stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night to weigh-in on Speaker Pelosi’s latest stimulus package; calling the $3 trillion proposal “dead as fried chicken” when it reaches the Senate.
“Senator, I don’t want anyone else to die. I don’t want anyone else to get sick. But we did learn from workers that didn’t get sick, they wore masks and gloves,” said Hannity.
“None of us want anyone to die. I don’t think any of us want to see permanent damage done to our economy,” said Sen. Kennedy. “That’s why I’m so disappointed in Speaker Pelosi’s bill… It’s not a serious effort to legislate. It’s dead as fried chicken in the Senate.”

KENNEDY on HANNITY: Seattle Mayor ‘Needs to Take Her Meds’
Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana spoke with Sean Hannity Thursday night on Seattle’s ‘Autonomous Zone,’ saying the far-left Mayor “needs to take her meds” and send in law enforcement.
“I don’t mean disrespect, but the mayor needs to take her meds. She cannot maintain order in Seattle without her law enforcement officials. She just can’t,” Kennedy said.
Washington Governor Jay Inslee doubled-down on his support for the ‘Capital Hill Autonomous Zone’ -better known as CHAZ- Thursday night; saying the area is “peaceful” and “fundamentally American.”
“I spoke with @MayorJenny and her team about the situation on Capitol Hill. Although unpermitted, and we should remember we are still in a pandemic, the area is largely peaceful. Peaceful protests are fundamentally American, and I am hopeful there will be a peaceful resolution,” posted Inslee on social media.
“This is a challenging time. Many in our state are expressing heartfelt outrage at the very real racial injustices in our society. We have work to do now and in the future to both advance equity and protect the gains we’ve made,” he added.

“Rapes, robberies, and all sorts of violent acts have been occurring in the area, and we’re not able to get to it. It is not a right for us not to be able to deploy our officers here,” said the Seattle Police Chief.
