But there was more to come. The senator repeated the schtick in a Fox News clip shared on social media Wednesday, this time wearing the life-sized, grinning photo of Casey’s face like a boutonniere. And Fetterman talked more gibberish. “Oh no please don’t do it, it’s just like those dangerous man over there, you know. The cheap thrills and everything, I don’t know,” he said.

pic.twitter.com/jHa1udMT7j — Senator John Fetterman (@SenFettermanPA) September 4, 2023The senator, who is infamous for dressing like a bum in the performance of his duties, called impeachment a political loser. His dismissal was surprising, as he had challenged the Republicans to proceed with impeachment last week. The reality is Democrats have a lot to worry about as the corruption of the Biden family continues to be exposed. Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, who had pushed House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to take action on impeachment, set some expectations for how the Democrat-controlled Senate would treat the proceedings — using Fetterman’s awkward dismissal as an example. “The evidence against Joe Biden is overwhelming,” Gaetz wrote Wednesday on X. “A first-year law student could win this case for impeachment before a fair jury. “Unfortunately, the United States Senate isn’t a fair jury. It’s full of fashion icons like John Fetterman. [firefly_poll] “While the Senate will be the platform, the American people will ultimately be the jury when we put that case before them.” The video in the post included Gaetz sharing a laugh with Steve Bannon over Fetterman’s wardrobe.
Gaetz observed the senator had never appeared dressed better: Fetterman’s shirt had buttons, and his pants were not entirely held up by elastic. Fetterman’s X account posted a reply to the congressman, using his typical crude and inappropriate language.

WARNING: The following post contains vulgar language that some viewers may find offensive.
“Government shutdown in t-minus 16 days,” the post said. “Instead of crying about how I dress, how about you get your s*** together and do your job, bud?
Gaetz responded with an insightful retort that highlighted Fetterman’s lack of legislative achievements and how out of touch the Democrat’s priorities are. “Glad to see you’re well enough to muster a tweet, Senator,” he said. “Here’s what I’ve been working on while you’ve been away: Term limits. Balanced budgets. Single-subject spending bills. Which of these are you against?”

The events of this week reinforced that Fetterman is not ready for primetime. The senator is childish. He defiantly dresses like a slob but remains sensitive about it. He squandered his authority as an elected representative of the American people by faking mockery of serious allegations of corruption at the highest levels of government. Fetterman’s ill-conceived attempts to deflect Democrats’ crises and crimes demonstrate he is a disgrace to the position he holds. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
