(FeaturedNews.com) – On Wednesday, during an appearance on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,’ Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., claimed that not the “best and brightest” Americans end up serving in Congress.
The statement quickly made the rounds online with many critics online roasting the senator for his statement.
During the interview, Fetterman told host Stephen Colbert that often it is impossible to believe that some of these people in Washington, D.C. were the ones making decisions that affect the whole country. He proceeded to call the situation “scary.”
Colbert had prompted Fetterman’s comments by inquiring whether it was “awkward” when he had to face lawmakers that he had posted memes about online.
Users online were quick to mock Fetterman over his statements, with former Republican Governor Mike Huckabee even stating that he embodied “the very truth” he was referring to. In his post on X, formerly known as Twitter Huckabee also claimed that this moment could have originated as an SNL skit and it was one of the rare occasions when there was a funny moment on Colbert’s show.
Joe Concha, a conservative author and columnist joined in the discussion by arguing that this statement was made by Fetterman who had relied on his parents well into his 40s and had never had a real job.
Sen. Ted Cruz’s former staffer Steve Guest similarly pointed out that this was a “pot met kettle” moment, while Chaya Raichik, the creator of Libs of TikTok questioned whether Fetterman owned a mirror.
This was something that other users also reiterated, with conservative commentator Alex Lorusso questioning whether Fetterman had met himself.
