Fetterman’s Comments With Colbert Draw Backlash


Senator John Fetterman recently appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to discuss a multitude of issues facing the United States and he took the time to take a swipe at his fellow lawmakers.

During the conversation, Fetterman was frank about his recent recovery from a stroke and his ongoing mental health issues. But what got the most attention was when he mocked his fellow lawmakers.

When asked about the near-government shutdown, the Pennsylvania Democrat made a scathing remark about the quality of the current government. “You all need to know that America is not sending their best and brightest to Washington D.C.,” he said. “Sometimes you literally just can’t believe…these people are making the decisions that are determining the government here. It’s actually scary.”

Oh really, the Senate never needed to have an official dress code until guess who was elected?

The one thing good that Fetterman has done since the war broke out in Israel was not get caught in the weeds. Almost as soon as the attack broke out Fetterman made a strong statement in support of Israel and has continued to affirm his support.

“As a senator, I am always going to stand on the side of Israel and I’m going to make sure that whatever is needed, military, intelligence or humanitarian, to vote for that and support that as well, too. Right now, they can’t do anything because we don’t have a speaker. This is what I’m talking about,” Fetterman said.

“I know the president is committed to making sure that we deliver for Israel. But also Ukraine as well, too. We have a pivotal kind of position to be in that we have to stand with both of these kinds of campaigns, to stand for those kinds of people that are fighting against these kinds of awful kinds of enemies,” the Senator added.
