Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday night
that President Joe Biden was willing to sell out American foreign policy
ďlike a sack of potatoes,Ē which comes amid news reports this week that Biden allegedly had more contacts with Hunter Bidenís foreign business associates.
Kennedy discussed some of Bidenís nominees to lead federal agencies, saying that they are ďthe most radical folks Iíve ever seenĒ and that they ďhave contempt for Americans.Ē
ďThey think theyíre smarter and more virtuous than the American people who didnít vote for President Biden,Ē Kennedy said. ďAnd these are just really radical people. And I just think that the Biden administration by virtue of
its appointees, and otherwise, they just have this huge blind spot, about the lives and the problems of middle class America.Ē
When speaking about Dr. Anthony Fauci, Kennedy said that he respected him but that he has been disappointed in him. ďOn too many issues, he has flip-
flopped like a banked catfish,Ē Kennedy said. ďOn too many other issues,
Sean, you know, Iím a simple guy. I like breakfast food and straight answers, and he wonít give a straight answer. He dodges, bobs, weaves, rope-a-dopes. This is serious business. This is not some academic frolic. Peopleís lives
and livelihoods are at stake.Ē
Later, when asked about reports about Bidenís knowledge of his sonís foreign business dealings, Kennedy said that Biden needed to address the issue ďhead-on.Ē
ďPresident Obama put him in charge of the Foreign Affairs of two countries, China and Ukraine,Ē Kennedy said. ďAnd in both cases, his son walked away
with millions of dollars worth of contracts. You know the message that sends
to the world? American foreign policy can be bought, like a sack of potatoes. And President Biden needs to hit this one to head-on.Ē
SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS HOST: Here to react to that more, he gets two gold
stars one for Fauci and one for the ATF guy, Senator Kennedy of Louisiana.
That might have been the most entertaining but yet sad beatdown I think Iíve ever seen. Iíve met a talk shows 33 years, Iíve never done that good a job senator. Take a bow.
SEN. JOHN KENNEDY (R-LA): Well, I appreciate it. Sean it was said. And, and
the people that President Biden has appointed to make policy for him, are the most radical folks Iíve ever seen. And Iím not, Iím not saying, you know,
just a reasonable disagreement. These are people that that have contempt for America. They have contempt for Americans. They think theyíre smarter and
more virtuous than the American people who didnít vote for President Biden in their opinion. They think weíre all a bunch of deplorables. We canít think
for ourselves and they think democracy is, is too important to be left to the people. They ought to get to make all the decisions. And his nominee to the ATF. His copy of the Bill of Rights goes from amendment one to amendment
three. Iím convinced he doesnít believe in the Second Amendment. Now this is America, you donít believe what you want. But you canít ignore the
Constitution when you take an oath of office to abide by. And these are just really radical people. And I just think that the Biden administration by
virtue of its appointees, and otherwise, they just have this huge blind spot, about the lives and the problems of middle class America.
HANNITY: You know, it is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, I would think youíd have to have some fundamental knowledge of firearms. Let me move
on to Dr. Flip Flop Fauci. And we were all called conspiracy theorists by people that push the biggest conspiracy theory ever and that is the Trump Russia collusion hoax lie. But now we know that China knew early. And now we have evidence and phone records and other anecdotal evidence that, in fact, that is where the virus came from. And China knew about it. And the greatest evidence they knew about it, Senator, is they had a travel ban. You couldnít leave Wuhan province and go anywhere else in China. You couldnít travel to Wuhan from the rest of China. But you can leave Wuhan and traveled to the world. Is there any doubt in your mind that China knew and hid it? And what should we do?
KENNEDY: Well, weíll know and Iím going to say a word about Dr. Fauci. I know Dr. Fauci. I respect Dr. Fauci. Iím disappointed in Dr. Fauci. On too many issues, he has flip flopped, like a banked catfish. On too many other issues, Sean, you know, Iím a simple guy. I like breakfast food and straight answers, and he wonít give a straight answer. He dodges, bobs, weaves, rope-a-dopes. This is serious business. This is not some academic frolic. Peopleís lives
and livelihoods are at stake. Now, his agency, he gave money to the Wuhan lab that was playing around with this virus. He needs to tell us everything he knows about that. What did they use the money for? What could they have used the money for? He says they didnít do gain of function research. Gain of function just means they might have turned a benign harmless virus into a killer. And he said, well, they didnít use my money to do that. Well, how do you know? What other labs has he and his agency given money to in China or in the United States? Who else is doing this research trying to create Frankensteins? In terms of President Biden has, weíve now found that he has disbanded President Trumpís task force that was trying to get to the bottom
of where the virus came from. Why? Dr. Fauci he says he didnít know anything about it. Now Iím not saying he did or didnít but he needs to be candid. And when he found out why wasnít he on the phone to President Biden racing fresh hell? And I understand Dr. Fauci doesnít like former President Trump that
much and this is America, heís entitled to believe what he wants, but thatís irrelevant to me. Weíve got to find out where this virus came from so we can stop it from happening again. And if the Chinese are playing around with viruses, turning them into deadly killers, especially with our money, we need to know and we need to stop.
HANNITY: I think they need to compensate the world just as a start. Last question. I only have a 30 seconds. Joe Biden denied any knowledge of
Hunterís foreign dealings, business dealings. We now know he lied, Senator, what should the consequences be?
KENNEDY: Well, President Biden needs to address this issue. President Obama
put him in charge of the Foreign Affairs of two countries, China and Ukraine. And in both cases, his son walked away with millions of dollars worth of contracts. You know the message that sends to the world? American foreign policy can be bought, like a sack of potatoes. And President Biden needs to
hit this one to head-on.
