Mary Landrieu Tells Keg Stand Critics To ‘Get A Life’

September 22, 2014 5:46 p.m.

Sen. Mary Landrieu doesn’t think much of critics who jumped on her for helping a supporter perform a keg stand, which was photographed and went viral online.

“They need to get a sense of humor, and they need to get a life β€” it’s just the way we roll,” the Louisiana Democrat said Monday at a Baton Rouge press conference, as quoted by Roll Call.

She added that the supporter was a 28-year-old graduate of Louisiana State University, where she was campaigning, with a master’s degree in business.

Landrieu is in a tough reelection battle against Rep. Bill Cassidy, the Republican nominee for her Senate seat.
