After Democrat John Fetterman managed to flip a Republican-held US Senate seat in Pennsylvania, celebrities and media outlets have been gushing over his future ‘potential’ ever since.
Given Fetterman’s condition, it’s not just stunning, but perhaps almost a miracle that Democrats managed to drag him over the finish line.
MSNBC went a step further, suggesting Fetterman could be a candidate for a 2024 presidential run.
The fact that Fetterman has trouble forming words and comprehending speech could make him a perfect presidential candidate for Democrats, just look at Joe Biden.
On Wednesday, MSNBC host Katy Tur speculated that Fetterman could run for the presidency someday.
Several MSNBC panelists praised Fetterman for bringing new leadership tactics to the Democratic Party following his victory against Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Tur floated the viability of, “Fetterman, as a nominee at some point for president,” before noting his record for surpassing President Biden and former President Trump’s vote share in the state.
MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell praised Fetterman for making so much progress with voters.
“I spent a lot of time covering this race, and with Pennsylvania politics, going back some decades, and I started my career there, but the fact that John Fetterman did, first of all, so much better with White non-college-educated voters,’ she said.
“Better than Biden, better than Trump, so he ran ahead of both of them, but he also, you know, did fairly well in the cities and in the [unintelligible] counties.”
