Political rhetoric should be toned down on both sides after suspicious packages containing pipe bombs were addressed to several liberal figures this week, Sen. John Kennedy said Thursday.

"I'm sorry for what happened to the Clintons and the Obamas, and Mr. George Soros, and now apparently Vice President (Joe) Biden," the Louisiana Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." 

"I am sorry for America. We shouldn't have to go through this."

At the same time, political rhetoric has been "hot on both sides," said Kennedy. "Probably, we all ought to dial it down a notch. When you are civil, it doesn't mean you agree with your colleagues. It means you respect them, and I'm just sorry this happened. I do think we will catch this person."

He added that there are people, such as former CIA Director John Brennan, whose name was on a package sent to CNN, who want to blame the political climate, but there is plenty of blame to go around.

"A month ago, Secretary (Hillary) Clinton said we shouldn't be civil to the Republican Party," said Kennedy.

"I can remember a famous comedian on television holding the fake severed head of President (Donald) Trump. I have heard some of my colleagues on Capitol Hill saying when you see He also acknowledged that the motive behind the mailings is unknown.

"It may well be some whack job," said Kennedy. "It could be somebody who is just angry at opponents of the president."
