The gloves are off…
Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman (D) didn’t mince words when he brushed off longtime Democrat strategist James Carville’s concerns over Biden’s recent nosedive in polling.
Fetterman had an inflammatory response to Carville’s warnings, cursing him out and questioning his relevance in a recent Politico interview.
“There’s a whole lifetime in politics between now and next November as well. I’m not worried about that. And I’m very vocal about this, too, while there are Democrats that are being very critical about the president. … I’ll use this [as] another opportunity to tell James Carville to shut the fuck up,” Fetterman told Politico regarding Biden’s polling.
“My man hasn’t been relevant since grunge was a thing,” Fettterman said. “And I don’t know why he believes it’s helpful to say these kinds of things about an incredibly difficult circumstance with an incredibly strong and decent and excellent president. I’ll never understand that.”
“I really am not worried about that because he is my guy,” Fetterman told Politico. “And he is going to be the Democrats’ guy, and I’m proud to campaign with him.”
Carville pushed back against the senator’s claims about his lack of relevance and said that other Democrat senators “apparently haven’t gotten the memo yet,” Politico reported.
“[Fetterman’s] colleague Sen. Casey asked me to host a fundraiser with him last week,” Carville told Politico. “Sen. Brown asked me to go to Cleveland to campaign with him.”
