Louisiana Republican Sen. John Kennedy told WWL-TV in an interview that "my experience with the president has been that he’s not a racist. It bothers me that we throw around this allegation being a racist a little too casually now."

Kennedy was asked by the TV station's Paul Murphy if he was disappointed in President Donald Trump's comment about immigrants coming from "s**thole countries," and not first-world nations like Norway.

"Well I wish he hadn't of said it," said Kennedy. "Of course, he’s denied it, and I’m sure the White House will elaborate on it."
