Kennedy Tells Dems To ‘Go To Amazon Online’ And ‘Buy A Spine’ On Impeachment

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) is apparently at the end of his rope with his Democratic colleagues.

During a Sunday appearance on “Face the Nation,” Kennedy ranted that Democrats need to hurry up and make a decision on whether they want to impeach President Donald Trump or not.

“You know, if you want to do it, go to Amazon online, buy spine, and do it,” Kennedy said. “But go hard or go home. If you’re not going to do it, then let us get back to work.”

“I hate to waste a year and a half,” he complained.

The Republican senator, who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, also walked back his previous call for special counsel Robert Mueller to testify publicly in front of Congress, now saying that he doesn’t “think it will do any good.”

“He clearly doesn’t want to,” Kennedy said, citing Mueller’s comments during his press conference last week. “If you make him testify, he going to say ‘Read my report.'”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
