‘”You say follow the science, Mr. Prime Minister. Let’s follow the science. We look around. We see the Omicron variant. Its virulence waning. Most of us have immunity. We are either natural or we are vaccinated. What, Mr. Prime Minister, is your road map for getting government off our backs and allowing us to get back to normal?’…Instead of saying, ‘Fair question, let’s sit down and talk about it.’ His plan for convincing the truckers that they are wrong is by saying you’re a bunch of stupid idiots,” Kennedy said.
“Here’s what I hear the prime minister saying to the truckers. ‘Look, truckers, I’m smart. You’re not. I’m educated. You’re not. I drink caramel frappuccinos. You don’t. I eat bacon-wrapped dates…You don’t even know what that is. So sit down and shut up.’ And the truckers’ response to the prime minister, well it’s predictable. They’re bowing up. Now, I would gently say to the Prime Minister. If you’re going to be a smartass, first you have to be smart. Otherwise, you’re just an ass. And I think he needs to recalibrate and realize what this is all about,” Kennedy added.
