"America is going through a rough patch right now," Kennedy said. "Some people seem to be enjoying it. Maybe they just hate America. Maybe they just enjoy watching the world burn. I think some are liking the chaos because they think it gives them a political advantage. Part of that chaos is being caused by our schools closing. For our kids, we need to open them."
"I can promise you for many of our kids, keeping these schools closed is going to hurt them far worse than the coronavirus can. France, Germany, Denmark, Austria, Vietnam. Even Vietnam has opened their schools," the Senator said. "And they've done it safely and we can too and we should too and if I can say one of the thing."
"I know some people in good faith disagree with me and I respect that. Let's have the debate. But there are some people who want to keep our schools closed because they think it gives them a political advantage. And they are using our kids as political pawns and to them, I say unashamedly they can kiss my ass. That's wrong to do that the kids of America. Not the people in good faith but those who are just enjoying the chaos because they think it's going to help them in November," Kennedy finished.
