Karl thats, why you have on the best political line in America? If you like hypocrisy, you will love this next story. Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for a national mask mandate, applauded lockdown measures in California, including the forced closure of countless small businesses. Last night Pelosi was caught on tape inside a San Francisco hair salon, getting her hair done and about that mask mandate. Her mask was not on either. Hair salons in San Francisco have been closed since March, for you for me and for everyone else, not named Nancy Pelosi, but today, instead of apologizing Nancy Pelosi blasted the salon for setting her up,
apparently someone forced her to make an appointment and get her hair washed and dried its all a big set up. I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon I have been to over the years many times and that when they said we were able to accommodate people one person at a time and we can set up that time. I trusted that, as it turns out, it was a set up, so I take responsibility for falling for a set up. I think this salon owes me an apology in a tweet president. Trump had a few choice: words for the had a few choice- words for the house. Speaker writing. We will almost certainly take
back the house and send Nancy Packing joining us. Now is Louisiana, Senator John Kennedy. I want to ask you about how the residents of the Louisiana are doing in the aftermath of Hurricane Laura thanks for that. This is probably the worst hurricane damage I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot of hurricane damage. This storm practically knocked Louisiana into Texas. I was out all day yesterday trying to help my people I got in late last night and I saw the story about Speaker Pelosi violating the coronavirus rules that she has advocated for and the rest of us mere mortals have to abide by in order to get her hair done. I thought to myself isnt this
special. Despite the fact its against the law. Speaker Pelosi is getting her hair washed and probably getting a neck massage and my people dont even have water week. The irony is extraordinary, but I am not sure will be glad to make sure why I make this statement. I am not sure she can help herself well. I want you to explain that one thats too good. Yes, why could she not help herself? Well, Speaker Pelosi is part of what I call the managerial elite. They can strut sitting down. You know who I am talking about: the entrenched politicians in Washington, the bureaucrats, the media and the academics, the corporate
phonies. They live in the condos, with the high ceilings and the important art on the wall. I call them the shade truffles crowd. They think they are smarter and more virtuous than the middle class, ordinary Americans. They are not, of course, but here is the managerial elites message of which Speaker Pelosi is part to the ordinary Americans. You are a bunch of morons boy. The way you are always a bunch of racists, so just shut up, do what you are told and periodically we the elite, will tell you what values and
opinions you have to adopt without debate, because he are experts and intellectuals. Most people think now that Washington, D, dot c is the place where good ideas go to die. I will add one more observation, just my opinion, the managerial elite of which the speaker is apart. They think they are the smartest people in the room if they are the smartest people in the room, its the wrong room, because if they ever get in charge, you know this, they will put America in the ditch. They will beat the crap out of America and the american people dont deserve that Senator one reason I think you are popular not only in Louisiana but also in South Carolina is authent tisity in that video. I see hypocrisy the same with the mayor of Chicago telling people they can
protest, but not in my neighborhood and elected officials who say you cant eat indoor, but I am going to. Is there a political price to be paid for hypocrisy? Well, you make a good point. I dont want to paint with too broad of a brush. All Democrats are not like this, but too many Democrats. Today they dont, like ordinary Americans, unless they are part of a specific minority group that they deem worthy and for most ordinary Americans, the members of the managerial elite, of which Speaker Pelosi is a part, and I think Vice President Biden is too. They just think that we are all a bunch of deplorables if we are not part of a specific group that they deem worthy.
They dont respect the opinions of ordinary Americans and they dont like us very much. I dont think Americans want to be governed by people who look down on them. I know I dont senator you had a distinguished career in the law before you joined the United States Senate. What did you think of her? I was set up defense. What is it so hard for people in politics to say I am wrong. Why do you have to say I was set up? Well, the speaker makes my point she thinks most Americans are. She thinks most Americans are morons and will believe that with ordinary Americans lie to Congress, you can go to jail when members of Congress lie to
the american people, its called just politics. Thats what the speaker has done, she knows thats, not accurate. She just got caught but expects the american people to believe that excuse. Well, my experience has been the american people will forgive you for almost anything except lying. What can people that love your state but dont live there? Do to help you? In the coming days and weeks you can go to my website Kennedy, DOT Senate DOT, Gov. There are a number of ways to help sending food sending prayers and contributions. We will get through this Louisiana and America are tough. As a boot, we will show the american people
what its like to be an American. We understand Louisiana, but getting knocked down is not failure. Failure is not getting up. We will get back up.
