Landrieu continued, “But that’s not what the most egregious thing is about this report. It is this ad hominem attack that questioned the president’s capacity …

I’ve known [Biden] for 30 years. I have met with him personally, I’ve met with him with two people, five people, 10 people. I have been on trips with him crisscrossing the country, rebuilding America based on this incredible infrastructure bill that was passed. And I’m telling you, this guy’s tough. He’s smart.”
