John F. Kennedy‘s grandson, Jack Schlossberg, is not holding back in his criticisms against Vice President Mike Pence.

In a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, Pence, 60, called on Senate Democrats to break ranks and oppose the articles of impeachment brought against President Donald Trump.

The article goes on to state the following:

In his op-ed, Pence quoted former president Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Profiles in Courage, in which Kennedy praised Republican Senator Edmund Ross for breaking ranks and voting to acquit President Andrew Johnson when he was impeached in 1868.

Schlossberg, the son of Caroline Kennedy and Ed Schlossberg, blasted out a series of tweets in response to the op-ed.

One tweet read, “Pence draws upon JFK’s book PROFILES IN COURAGE and the example of Edmund G. Ross, a Republican Senator who broke with his party to oppose the impeachment of President Johnson in 1865.”

“Pence is right to celebrate Ross, a public servant who, foreseeing his own defeated (sic), nonetheless summoned the courage to vote his conscience, and put the national interest above his own. But let’s not be confused,” he added in another tweet.
