Sen. John Kennedy Has a Different Name for the 'Squad,' And Trump Is Loving It

We know them as "the Squad." The four progressive, first term congresswomen who are becoming a thorn in the president's and, it turns out, the Democratic establishment's side. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) are the four females everyone is talking about. But fed up Republicans have thought of some other entertaining endearments for them.

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) dubbed them "the four horsewomen of the Apocalypse" on a Tuesday night "Tucker Carlson Tonight" appearance, and it quickly got Trump's seal of approval. Kennedy had a less clever title, "whack jobs," but the president liked that one too.

Sen. Kennedy did admit that Trump's controversial tweet in which he told the four lawmakers to "go back" to their countries of origin and fix the messes there if they hate America so much, was "a poor choice of words." After all, only Rep. Omar had been born outside the U.S. Still, Kennedy said her remarks, and those of AOC, Tlaib, and Pressley, were much worse. They've spewed anti-Semitic musings, minimized the September 11 terror attacks, and worse.

That brings us to our next insulting title.

"Now they’re entitled to their opinion, they are Americans, but I’m entitled to my opinion, and I just think they’re left-wing cranks, and they’re the reason that there are directions on a shampoo bottle. I think we should ignore them.”

Kennedy insisted on Wednesday that the name "whack jobs" was meant to be "heartfelt."
