Whoa. Republican Senator John Kennedy is not holding back when it comes to ripping into Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal for trying to “screw with the president.”
Kennedy made an appearance on CNN’s The Lead” to give the Neal a piece of his mind after the Democrat tried to justify his demand that the IRS surrender six years of President Trump’s tax returns because he needed to “determine how Americans — including those elected to our highest office — are complying with” tax laws.
“I can’t believe he really thinks the American people are going to fall for that,” Kennedy declared in response. “It must really suck to be that dumb.”
“Look, this is very simple. Mr. Neal wants to screw with the president. He doesn’t think the president ought to be president. Well, you know, words can’t express how much I don’t care,” he continued.
“This is wildly dishonest,” Kennedy bluntly shared. “This is thoroughly in bad faith. And I don’t blame the president for pushing back.”
