For a party trying to float by on feminist hashtags and regain lost blue collar voters, a Kennedy seemed an odd choice to give the rebuttal to the State of the Union.
And that was before they put him in front of a wrecked car.
Yet, even though the speech was a farrago of platitudes given by a wholly undeserving trustfunder who appeared to be drooling and was attired like a freshman high school athlete dressing up for game day, this was a Kennedy, after all — which meant the media had to find something to praise him for.
And they did, in the line, “Build a wall and my generation will tear it down.”
Given that this was a Kennedy, you probably shouldn’t be surprised to learn the line actually wasn’t his. His mention of it came during a part of the speech where he addressed those in the loose coalition of anti-Trumpers that would probably use the hashtag #TheResistance without a hint of irony.
“And to all the Dreamers watching tonight, let me be clear: Ustedes son parte de nuestra historia. Vamos a luchar por ustedes y no nos vamos alejar. (You are a part of our story. We will fight for you. We will not walk away.) America, we carry that story on our shoulders,” Kennedy said.
“You swarmed Washington last year to ensure no parent has to worry if they can afford to save their child’s life.
“You proudly marched together last weekend – thousands deep — in the streets of Las Vegas and Philadelphia and Nashville.
“You sat high atop your mom’s shoulders and held a sign that read: ‘Build a wall and my generation will tear it down.’”
So, Joe Kennedy is essentially getting credit for a line written by someone else and taken off of a placard. If nothing else, this provides an ample glimpse into just how feverishly the media continues to perform CPR on the Kennedy legacy.
However, there’s another funny thing about the Kennedy legacy that’s worth pointing out: As a family, they actually seem to love walls. Just not along our Southern border.
