Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "dumb" Wednesday at a "Keep America Great" rally in Monroe hosted by President Trump.
SEN. JOHN KENNEDY (R-LA): Hello, Louisiana.
Thank you, Mr. President, for visiting our state.
In three short years, President Trump has doubled the growth in the greatest economy in all of human history.
And you know what our Democratic friends have done for him?
Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to impeach him.
I don't mean any disrespect, but it must suck to be that dumb.
And let me tell you--let me tell you one other thing. The same people that are backing Speaker Pelosi are sending tens of millions of dollars to support Governor Edwards.
And all he has given us, all Governor Edwards has given us is decline and uncertainty.
Now unless--unless you are happy with crappy, I want you to vote for Eddie Rispone for governor.
And I want you--I want you to vote for Kyle Ardoin for secretary of State.
And I want you--this is important, I want you to vote for Robert Mills for the Louisiana State Senate.
God bless Louisiana. God bless our president, and God bless the United States of America.
AUDIENCE: USA. USA. USA. USA. USA.
