Good little footsoldier for Trump, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) calls them horsewomen of the Apocalypse. Uh, that's not a bad thing, Senator.

John N. Kennedy, Republican Senator from Louisiana, is being a great footsoldier for the so-called president.

He's been making the rounds, above on CNN, and below on Fox.

And he claims the congresswomen popularly known as "the Squad" are actually the "four horsewomen of the Apocalypse":

On Tucker, Kennedy said, "“The simple fact of the matter is, the four congresswomen think that America was wicked in its origins. They think that America and its people are even more wicked now, that we are all racist and misogynistic and evil. They’re entitled to their opinion. They’re Americans. But I’m entitled to my opinion, and I just think they’re left-wing cracks, and they’re the reason there are directions on a shampoo bottle. I think we should ignore them.”

He doesn't have his chapter of Revelation quite right. The "Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse" brought righteous justice, not Hell, in the final battle between good and evil on Earth. They are released upon the world by the opening of "seals" by "the lamb," meaning Christ. And while they are 'conquest, war, famine, and death' they're put on the earth by God (yeah, Revelation is creepy) to bring about a just cleansing of evil on earth. The good guys are taken up to heaven with the Lamb.

John Kennedy just called the women freshmen righteous and terrifying warriors for God. Okay then.
