Louisiana Senator John Kennedy reacted to a recent statement from President Joe Biden on Thursday; Biden made comments toward “MAGA Republicans,” whom he claimed suggest policies that would “choose to inflict this kind of pain on the American people.”
“I think that President Biden is the only person in the Milky Way who thinks our country is headed in the right direction,” Kennedy said. “Look at the facts: Last year, our economy grew at 1%, China’s economy was shut down. It grew at 3%. [The U.S. has] 13.5% inflation cumulatively — that’s what President Biden has given us in two years.”
“I don’t mean any disrespect, but if that was my record, I would hide my head in a bag.”
“[Americans] understand that crime is way up,” he said. “They understand that respect for our institutions is way down. The American people understand that it’s harder than ever to get ahead in our country right now, and it’s easier than ever to do nothing.”
