Senator Kennedy doubled down on his statement about Nancy Pelosi being dumb, calling it “accurate.”
Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) defended remarks this week in which he called Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) "dumb," saying that his comments were "accurate."
"Well, I didn't mean disrespect," he said Friday on Fox News, "but I do think what I said was accurate."
"Let me say it again: I think that what Speaker Pelosi is doing here is not only dumb, but it's dangerous," he said, referring to the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry led by Pelosi.
"It's a partisan impeachment, clearly," he continued. "All impeachments, I guess, are political. But, this one's 100 percent political and it's going to establish a new norm for America that I think is bad for us."
