The always humorous Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana recently joked that President Biden’s polling has fallen so low that Americans don’t trust him “to open a can of Pringles,” the Washington Examiner reported.
The Louisiana Republican appeared on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” on January 4 where he was discussing the current state of politics.
The topic veered to the recent Colorado Supreme Court decision to remove Donald Trump from the state’s primary ballot.
Kennedy said the ruling only helped Trump and suggested that the Supreme Court would ultimately overturn the decision.
When Hugh Hewitt asked about Delaware Senator Chris Coons’ recent comment that the Colorado high court had the authority to remove Trump from the ballot, the jocular senator described Coons as a “good guy” and a “friend of mine,” adding that they don’t always agree. Kennedy said Coons is close to Biden and had to “toe the party line.”
Noting how low the president’s approval numbers are, Kennedy said right now, the American people don’t trust Biden “to open a can of Pringles.” He explained that Senator Coons defending the Colorado Supreme Court decision was his way of trying to “help Biden.” At the same time, Kennedy said Coons would not be able to “fool the American people” who recognize that the “justice system is being politicized.
Kennedy added that the politicized justice system is one reason why Biden’s polling is “on a journey to the center of the Earth.”
A CBS News poll released last weekend found that Biden’s disapproval remains stubbornly high, with 59 percent of respondents disapproving of the president and only 41 percent approving.
Voters continue to doubt the president’s ability to handle the economy or persistent inflation.
Only 36 percent of respondents approve of Biden’s handling of the economy while a staggering 64 percent disapprove. On inflation, only 33 percent approve of the president while 67 percent disapprove.
