GOP Senator: Romney’s Op-Ed ‘About as Popular as Head Lice’ for Many People

Senator John Kennedy had some criticism for new colleague Mitt Romney today over his op-ed blasting President Donald Trump‘s character.

Romney has been getting serious criticism from many in his own party. Senator David Perdue called it an attempt at “character assassination.”

On Fox News this morning, Kennedy told Neil Cavuto he personally likes Romney, “but for the millions and millions of Americans who are better off today than they were two years ago, his op-ed piece, his behavior was about as popular as head lice.”

Cavuto suggested Romney’s still salty over being passed over for Secretary of State, saying the Utah senator looks “all over the map on this and appearing very phony.”

“It just seems to me it would behoove all of us to try to help him succeed,” Kennedy said. “I mean, you can disagree with somebody without basically calling them an ignorant slut.”
