Fetterman tells Dems critical of Biden that they may as well just get their MAGA hats

Just when conservatives were warming up to the musings of John Fetterman 2.0, the senator from Pennsylvania found his way back to the Democratic plantation.

On Thursday, Fetterman appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and took aim at those in his party being critical of President Biden ahead of the November election, saying they might as well start rocking a “MAGA hat.”

“I don’t understand why,” he said.  “I don’t know what’s in it for you to do that whether you’re just chasing clout or you want to make it in the news or anything like that. But if you’re not willing to just support the president now and say these kinds of things, you might as well just get your MAGA hat, because you now are helping Trump with this.”

The Democratic senator also predicted that Biden would be reelected and that carrying Pennsylvania once again would be a key factor in bringing about a second term.

“The president is going to win here in Pennsylvania, and I’ve always believed that whoever wins Pennsylvania is going to be the next president as well, too,” Fetterman said. “This is going to be difficult, and we all have to lean in on that.”

Fetterman also took another shot at Democratic strategist James Carville, saying he should “shut the f‑‑k up” about criticizing Biden’s chances of defeating Donald Trump again — this being a repeat of a remark he made in December.

“And I’m very vocal about this, too, while there are Democrats that are being very critical about the president,” he said. “I’ll use this [as] another opportunity to tell James Carville to shut the f–k up.”

Carville has been outspoken about Biden’s age, saying back in September, “If we have somebody under 60 and ran against Trump, we’d get 55 percent.”

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on X:
