Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) has accused his fellow Democrats of “rooting” for him to suffer “another blood clot” because they are “wishing” that he would “die.”
Fetterman made the shocking allegations during a Wednesday interview with the liberal New York Times.
“What I have found out over the last couple years is that the right, and now the left, are hoping that I die,” Fetterman alleged.
“There are ones that are rooting for another blood clot.
“They have both now been wishing that I die.”
The comments come after Fetterman made news by breaking with Democrats on several major issues.
The senator has gone against the rest of his party by supporting Israel and condemning Hamas terrorists.
Fetterman’s position has provoked a backlash from the progressive Left as many of his supporters presumedly assumed the radical lawmaker would stand with the terrorist group.
According to NBC News, many of Fetterman’s supporters are accusing the controversial senator of betraying his base and being “silent on genocide.”
Fetterman has publicly stated that he supports Israel’s military retaliation against Hamas for the October 7 terrorist attacks that killed over 1,400 people in the Jewish state.
After the surprise Hamas terror attack, Fetterman, known as a progressive champion, declared:
“I unequivocally support any necessary military, intelligence, and humanitarian aid to Israel.
“The United States has a moral obligation to be in lockstep with our ally as they confront this threat.
“I also fully support Israel neutralizing the terrorists responsible for this barbarism.”
He has also called for the resignation of Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NY), as Slay News reported.
Fetterman made the call while commenting on Rep. George Santos (R-NY) being formally expelled from Congress.
During an appearance on ABC’s “The View,” the senator argued that Menendez’s actions are “much more sinister and serious” than the allegations against Santos.
“He needs to go,” Fetterman said of Menendez.
Fetterman has also gone against the Democrats and President Joe Biden by demanding stronger border policies to deal with the border crisis.
Earlier in December, Fetterman said he is “not a progressive” after being asked about his differences with Democrats.
“I’m not a progressive,” Fetterman said in an interview with NBC News.
“I just think I’m a Democrat that is very committed to choice and other things.
“But with Israel, I’m going to be on the right side of that.
“And immigration is something near and dear to me, and I think we do have to effectively address it as well.”
