Do you know how I feel right now as I type these words? I feel as if I’ve been adrift. I’ve been adrift, first marooned on some island, then forced to drift aimlessly in a tiny Dinghy, in shark-infested waters, until — until…

A vivid, bright, fun-loving blue dolphin did a back flip, splashing his way over and carrying me safely home. “My money is on the guy who kicked his ass in 2020.” Ah, I do adore John Fetterman. I’ve used the Dolphin Metaphor on him before. He appeared on MSNBC after President Biden’s interview aired on ABC, and his message was clear—He’s riding with Biden.

And he said the words above. Fetterman certainly understands. Who could forget his race against Dr. Oz, which the media tried so very hard to screw up (and they didn’t.) Fetterman is never one to hold back. He said on MSNBC, that this week, while Dr. Oz was talking about constipation, HE was in the Senate—a race he won. A race the media told us he COULDN’T win.

For Fetterman, it was tough. All the familiar faces in the media PICKED HIM APART, over and over and over again. There were calls for Fetterman to drop out of the race. People said he was behind in the polls. They picked apart his debate performance like was a bug under a damn microscope.

He won. He won. And he won. That’s because he was running, against a man with all the charisma of novocaine. Oz made gaffe after gaffe after gaffe, many of which received precious little attention from our “friends” in the media.

So yes, Fetterman went on MSNBC and defended his friend, President Biden, with gusto. And you know what? I’m glad he did Fetterman’s has ALSO been tirelessly defending Biden on Twitter. He has made it abundantly clear he’s ridin’ with Biden. Perhaps some politicians and pundits could take a lesson from him. Donate to Palmer Report
