Kennedy. Does that surname sound familiar? It is one of the most popular surnames in the United States of America.
Joseph Kennedy III is a thirty seven year old U.S Democratic Representative, he is well known in Massachusetts’s political spectrum. He currently made a speech which brought him into the spotlight nationally and internationally.
He had made this speech in front of a Mustang on a car lift in an auto shop at Damian Regional Technical school which is located in Fall River, Massachusetts.The speech he had made discussed was made towards President, Donald Trump and his administration.
In his speech he spoke about policy issues and attacked Donald Trump and his administration by the difference in values Trump and his administration have .He also discussed many crucial topics in his speech.
One of the key points he made in his speech was:
“This administration isn’t just targeting the laws that protect us – they are targeting the very idea that we are all worthy of protection.For them, dignity isn’t something you’re born with but something you measure.By your net worth, your celebrity, your headlines, your crowd size.”
This point was crucial point because it is how many Americans feel and a point many people do not know about Donald Trump’s administration. None the less, as Joseph continued his speech and spoke about how the administration is turning the American life into a Zero-sum game.Where in order for someone to win,another must loose.
He stated great examples like:
“Where we can guarantee America’s safety if we slash our safety net.We can extend healthcare to Mississippi if we gut it in Massachusetts.We can cut taxes for corporations today if we raise them for families tomorrow.We can take care of sick kids if we sacrifice Dreamers.”
His speech had continued on to discuss crucial points.However, many people began to focus on something else.They began to look at his lips.Many believed it was drool and twitter began to blow up immensely with tweets about his lips.
“I know liberals get really upset when Trump is doing great but this was the first time I actually saw one frothing at the mouth,” wrote @Katyellig.
“Ask not what your country can drool for you, ask what you can drool for your country!” @PetroNL tweeted.
Later on Joseph Kennedy III told Good Morning America that it was not drool it was chap stick and to much of it.
Many other state of union responded have been given similar unwanted attention. Such as, In 2013, GOP Sen. Marco Rubio’s response to President Barack Obama’s speech was mocked for his awkward off-screen reach for water.
We can only hope for the best and see where things lead in Joseph Kennedy III career and what happens next.
