USA Today reports:
President Donald Trump urged supporters in Monroe, Louisiana, Wednesday night to cast their ballot early for Republican businessman Eddie Rispone, who is challenging Democratic incumbent Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards in a Nov. 16 runoff election.
Rispone, a wealthy Baton Rouge businessman, took the stage alongside Trump to declare Louisiana “Trump country.” Republican Sens. Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy also joined Trump on stage to echo Rispone’s declaration for the president.
Kennedy defended the president against the impeachment inquiry, slamming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for launching the probe. “I don’t mean any disrespect but it must suck to be that dumb,” he said of Pelosi. Among the guests Trump brought on stage were Duck Dynasty stars Willie and Phil Robertson.
How far down Trump has taken us: a sitting U.S. Senator – @SenJohnKennedy said this tonight at a Trump rally about Speaker Nancy Pelosi
“I don’t mean any disrespect but it must suck to be that dumb.”
How can this cellar dwelling be acceptable to anyone in the U.S. Senate?

This is what “sucking up to Trump” looks like. Pathetic. Corrosive. Cruel. Ignorant. https://t.co/TPYBNCxL3I
