As Donald Trump continues to blame Democrats for the government shutdown, other Republicans are taking responsibility for it.
On Friday, GOP Senator John Kennedy of Lousiana blasted his own party by calling them “idiots” that run the country.
“Our country was founded by geniuses, but it’s being run by idiots,” Sen. Kennedy charged on Friday.

Kennedy also blasted his own party earlier this week.
“We’ve got to stop looking like the Jerry Springer show up here,” Sen. Kennedy said. “That’s why the aliens won’t talk to us. They’re saying, these people, they’re thirteen year olds, OK?”
