Senator John Kennedy dropped a truth bomb on Democrats for their treatment of President Trump.
Sen. John Kennedy: "Look, this is very simple. Mr. Neal wants to screw with the president. He doesn't think the president ought to be president. Well, words can't express how much I don't care." https://t.co/bJg0SxFClt pic.twitter.com/h6xKwOjxGQ

Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) on Friday mocked Rep. Richard Neal (D-Mass.), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, for asking that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) hand over six years of President Trump’s tax returns, saying the request is clearly political.
“Chairman Neal, powerful man, head of Ways and Means, I know he’s an adult, but I don’t think he’s like a real adult. He says that he needs Trump’s tax returns, he says it’s policy not politics. He has said … that the reason he needs them is that he needs to determine how well the IRS is auditing taxpayers. I can’t believe he really thinks the American people are going to fall for that. It must really suck to be that dumb,” Kennedy said on CNN Friday.
“This is very simple. Mr. Neal wants to screw with the president. He doesn’t think the president ought to be president,” he added.
“Now Mr. Neal is not in good faith. Nobody believes he’s in good faith. This is wildly dishonest. This is thoroughly in bad faith, and I don’t blame the president for pushing back,” he said.
"It must really suck to be that dumb."
