A GOP senator on Friday lamented that although America's founders were "geniuses," the nation has fallen into the hands of "idiots."

Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana leveled the withering critique in remarks to reporters amid worries about a government shutdown, The Hill reported.

"Our country was founded by geniuses, but it's being run by idiots," Kennedy declared.

But Kennedy wasn't the only congressional critic as the Senate grappled with a spending bill that could avert a shutdown.

Retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, took to the Senate floor to observe the upper chamber has "some really stupid people."

"This is the greatest country in the world, but we do have some really stupid people representing it from time to time, and with that, I probably have gone too far saying that, but it's true and it's disappointing to me," Hatch said.
