Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went after Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy on Monday after he claimed that both Ukraine and Russia interfered in the 2016 election.
“Sen. Kennedy, why are you parroting Russian propaganda that U.S. intelligence officials tell us are designed to divide our country?” Clinton tweeted. “Did you miss the briefing that day?” (RELATED: Ronan Farrow Says Hillary Clinton Gave Him The Cold Shoulder When He Exposed Weinstein)

The tweet was in reference to Senator Kennedy’s comments on “Meet the Press” Sunday where he doubled down on his claim that “both Russia and Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election.”

Shortly after Clinton tweeted out the her criticism of Kennedy, President Trump praised the Louisiana Senator for, “representing both the Republican Party and myself.”
Thank you to Great Republican @SenJohnKennedy for the job he did in representing both the Republican Party and myself against Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd on Meet the Depressed!
