GOP Senator on Nancy Pelosi: ‘It Must Suck to Be That Dumb!’

Senator John Kennedy mocked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s intelligence at a Trump rally on Wednesday. The Louisiana Republican spoke in his home state with President Donald Trump behind him as he called Pelosi stupid.

“I don’t mean any disrespect but it must suck to be that dumb,” Kennedy told the crowd.

Trump smiled and appeared to laugh as Kennedy spoke.

Trump has frequently attacked Pelosi and publicly clashed with her. As Speaker of the House, Pelosi is overseeing the impeachment inquiry into the President’s behavior toward Ukraine. However, the bulk of the work in the inquiry is being carried out by House committees Pelosi doesn’t sit on.

Senator Kennedy is a long-time defender of the President who only entered the Senate in 2017, following Trump’s election victory. While Kennedy is far from the most prominent of Trump’s defenders, his support will be important if impeachment comes to trial in the Senate.
