One left-wing reporter believes Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman is presidential timber.
MSNBC’s Katy Tur, who infamously and ridiculously compared marshmallowy, overpaid journalists to firefighters early in the Trump administration, suggested on election night that Fetterman could be president one day — despite a stroke, the effects of which that he will not reveal, and a blatant dishonesty about what he really thinks.
It was clear as Fetterman battled Republican nominee, Dr. Mehmet Oz, that most of the liberal media turned Fetterman’s stroke-induced ramblings and halting behavior into a badge of honor — and denounced anyone who questioned his candidacy as being “ableist.”
Yet Tur went further.
“Fetterman as a nominee at some point for president,” Tur said as part of an election night panel on MSNBC.
“I know there are some variables, obviously,” she continued, but “what he did in the super-red, deep-red parts of Pennsylvania, and the way that he ran ahead of Biden as we were saying, and the way that he ran ahead of [Donald] Trump, I mean, it makes you wonder about his future.”
Does it, Katy?
Fetterman seems bound for the U.S. Senate after narrowly defeating Oz. Yet some, such as Biden himself, are wondering if Fetterman will make it as a senator.
Recall that just two weeks before Election Day, Biden, while campaigning in Pittsburgh, noted of Gisele Barreto Fetterman, the candidate’s wife, that she is “gonna be a great, great lady in the Senate.”
As the New York Post reported at the time, Biden’s observation was “appearing to imply that the Democrat would be unable to serve due to his poor health.”
“It’s unclear if Biden was implying that Fetterman would resign from the Senate due to his poor health or if he might die from his ailments,” the Post continued.
As Biden’s comment fueled speculation, at least on the right, about who was actually running for the Senate, Gisele did nothing to tamp down this pondering.
In fact, a Rolling Stone reporter noted of Gisele last month that “the reluctant political spouse became the de facto candidate” after Fetterman had his stroke.
Fox News, in a profile of Gisele Fetterman last month, noted that in an interview earlier this year, she told a reporter with a hint of Hillary Clinton that whenever her husband ran for office, “we’re just a team.”
One commentator who was not surprised by Tur’s lobbying for a Fetterman presidential campaign was Brandon Morse, deputy managing editor of the conservative website RedState.com.
“If you’re an authoritarian with grand designs for a more authoritarian state, you salivate at the idea of a man who can’t run his own office being elected because it gives you the chance to step in and run it in the background,” Morse wrote on Thursday.
“This might sound a bit conspiracy theorist, but it’s the logical truth. Fetterman is not going to run his office. He doesn’t have the cognitive capacity to do so. Others will have to do it for him, and they don’t have to face you for their action.”
“I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Fetterman [presidential] candidacy in the future.
Democrats already elected a man who has no business being in the oval office due to his cognitive decay, so it’s not that much of a stretch to think they’d put Fetterman up as an option,” Morse added.
“If they do, when you see Fetterman know that what you’re really considering is putting a group of people behind him in power.”
