Doesn't spare President Trump either!

Louisiana Senator John Kennedy sat down with Tucker Carlson to talk about how Republican's should deal with Congresswomen Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Pressley and Omar--who call themselves the Squad. 

Kennedy led right off by defending the four's right to freedom of speech.  But he followed up by saying he has a right to free speech as well.  And that's where the Senator brought out his home spun euphimisms.  

Summing up the Squad and their political views he said:  "They are entitled to their opinion. They are Americans. But I'm entitled to my opinion, and I just think they are left-wing cranks and they are the reason that there are directions on a shampoo bottle." 

But Kennedy saved the meaning of his message for a tag on the comment:  "I think we should ignore them."

The Senator reiterated repeatedly the four should be ignored as too radical and inflamatory for their own good.  

He also went after President Trump for waging a war of words with them on Twitter, "When you try to argue with a fool, that proves there are two."
