Senator Kennedy Gets His Dog Whistle Handed To Him [View all]

Senator Kennedy tried to play a game of Gotcha but he was the one that got got.

By Chris capper Liebenthal — November 29, 2023

Senator John Kennedy (NRA-LA) was questioning Dr. Megan Ranney of the Yale School of Public Health about the causes of shootings in Chicago. Kennedy thought he could play a little game of Gotcha with Ranney, but he grossly underestimated her caliber.

Kennedy started with asking Ranney if Chicago had become "America's largest outdoor shooting range" because of law-abiding people who had guns for self-protection and/or hunting or if it was because of a number of criminals with rap sheets "as long as King Kong's arm."

Ranney calmly replied by pointing out that Mississippi, Louisiana and Missouri had higher firearm death rates.


He really is a fucking idiot......
