Senator John Kennedy ripped the Biden administration’s handling of re-opening the country’s public schools Wednesday; saying the President has “flip-flopped on this issue like a banked catfish.”
“We know we need to get our schools open. If I were King for a day -and I don’t aspire to be- I would call a press conference this afternoon and tell the school boards to open the schools,” said Kennedy.
“There’s nothing more important. The future of this country is education… We have given K-12 $70 billion to get the schools open. They’ve spent $4 billion… President Biden has flip-flopped on this issue like a banked catfish. He needs to call a press conference this afternoon!” he added.

KENNEDY on DEM STIMULUS: ‘It’s Not a Coronavirus Bill, It’s a “Let’s Remake Western Civilization” Bill’
Senator John Kennedy spoke with Sean Hannity Wednesday night on Nancy Pelosi’s $3 trillion spending bill; saying the Speaker of the House “overplayed her hand” by including billions in unrelated spending.
“I don’t think we’re going to have a fifth bill… Some of my colleagues disagree, but I think it’s less than 50%. I think Speaker Pelosi overplayed her hand. Her bill is so grandiose, it’s not a Coronavirus bill, it’s basically a ‘Let’s remake Western Civilization’ Bill,” said Sen. Kennedy.
“If she takes it back to the Ocasio-Cortez wing in the House, they’re not going to support it. I think she overplayed her hand here,” he added.
