Now, Sen. John Kennedy has weighed in on the feud between the “squad” and President Trump.
In an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Kennedy voiced his opinion on the whole situation and disagreed with the leftist mainstream media that is calling President Trump and what he’s saying about the “four horsewomen of the apocalypse” racist.
The Louisiana senator defended Trump when he stated, “I don’t think President Trump is a racist. I don’t think his original tweet was racist,” and later gave his own thoughts on the Democrat congresswomen,
“The simple fact of the matter is that the four congresswomen think that America was wicked in its origins. They think that America and its people are even more wicked now, that we are all racist and misogynist and evil. Now..they’re entitled to their opinion, they’re 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!”

Kennedy's fantastic job at blasting the "squad" got President Trump's attention, as he tweeted this out following Kennedy's Tucker Carlson appearance:
Quotes from what Kennedy had to tell Tucker about the "squad" are circulating around on Twitter and seeming to catch on, especially how he dubbed the squad "the four horsewomen of the apocalypse."
Take a look at how Twitter is reacting:
The Washington Examiner has more to say about Kenndy's comments on the "squad" and defense of Trump:
Sen. John Kennedy questioned the intelligence of several Democratic House freshmen, equating them to people who need instructions on how to use shampoo.
The Louisiana Republican appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight to weigh in on the ruckus between President Trump and "The Squad," composed of Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.
On Sunday, Trump tweeted that the group of liberal congresswomen should "go back" to where they came from for criticizing the U.S. Democrats and some Republicans have since condemned the comments as racist and xenophobic.
Townhall also commented:
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.
