John Fetterman has been ruffling feathers on the Democratic side of the aisle.
The Pennsylvania senator abandoned some of the radical rhetoric of his campaign.
And Fetterman made this one comment about a scandal-ridden Democrat that shocked everybody.
Pennsylvania Senator John Fetterman has had a new attitude ever since being released from the hospital after checking himself in for depression.
Some have even joked that his liberalism was “cured” after improving his mental wellness.
Fetterman declared that he was “not a progressive,” which drew the ire of leftists, and denounced the Democrats’ open borders policies.
And most recently, Fetterman threw Democratic Senator Bob Menendez under the bus.
The New Jersey senator is facing corruption charges for the second time, and they appear to be sticking on this go-round.
Menendez showed up to Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s classified briefing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee amid a corruption investigation.
In response to Menendez’s appearance, Fetterman responded, “I don’t know why anybody would take a meeting with that sleazeball…And he needs to go. I’ve been very clear about that.”
Democrats rarely trash members of their own party, even ones with terrible baggage.
Fetterman added, “We should have chucked him. I don’t know why we haven’t chucked him, and I sure hope eventually we do chuck him.”
Fetterman also called out the “woke” insanity on college campuses in light of protests that broke out after the horrific Hamas terror attacks on October 7th.
He said, “As an alum of Harvard — look, I graduated 25 years ago, and of course it was always a little pinko. But now, I don’t recognize it.”
Fetterman’s “pinko” comments set off leftists like Cenk Uygur, founder of the far-left news network The Young Turks.
Uygur responded, “Now John Fetterman is telling everyone how he’s not a progressive, he rejects us and is now calling Harvard ‘pinko.’ What the f*ck? This is why people lose hope, because of frauds like Fetterman. You work hard to get a progressive elected and they turn into Republicans instantly…Fetterman has gone from the last great populist hope on the Democratic side to worse than useless. He’s now enthusiastically taken on the role of mouthpiece for the establishment who attacks anyone challenging Biden or the powerful. Counterproductive poser.”
Even Democrats are beginning to see that the Left have gone too far.
