Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) apologized for calling President Joe Biden’s embattled budget chief pick, Neera Tanden, a “whack job,” Politico reports.
Kennedy explained that he was searching for another word before calling her “a neo-socialist, left-of-Lenin whack job.”
He added: “I apologize. I was searching for a word for extremist, which I think is more neutral. And I should have said extremist. I never should have said whack job.”Save to Favorites
