John Fetterman’s parents gave him money into his 40s. Republicans say that undercuts his blue-collar image.

In his ads, and much of the public imagination, John Fetterman is a tattooed everyman from a rugged steel city
outside Pittsburgh...

Public records show — and Fetterman has openly acknowledged — that for a long stretch lasting well into
his 40s, his main source of income came from his parents, who gave him and his family $54,000 in 2015 alone...

Fetterman looks like a devil. Can I get a witness?

I don’t understand. Doesn’t everybody’s parents give them $54K/yr? Times are tough.

Or from their Uncle Sam?

Our company has an office in Carlisle, PA. - my work mates there say they will vote for Governor but skip the Senate Race. One guy who is a life long Republican, told me he will not vote for the Wizard of Oz.

I hope this helps because honestly the details are weak.

But Fetterman is a bizarre candidate, looks like an ex felon or wrestler.

And what’s with the about 20 dates tatooed all down guys arm? He looks like an idiot.

Well the “life long republican” is an idiot and is screwing PA and the whole nation.

I despise the sanctimonious fools who say “I’d rather have a Democrat”.

But they won’t change I’ve seen them grit their teeth and veins bulge out because they wouldn’t vote for an imperfect republican.

And when they help elect a pro abortion welfare state racist open border democrat, they scream at you “I don’t care”.

These are very angry and short sighted dopes.

if we elect President Trump, F all the “life long republicans” who will force him to deal with John Fetterman his entire term as president.

But why worry about reality.

There are lies, damned lies, then there are campaign ads.

Fetterman is not what he claims to be, but he sure is heading towards victory and flipping a Republican held Senate seat to the Democrats.

Why would his parents give a adult male $50k per year? Are they out of their minds?

I heard rumors of Trustafarians in Asheville, NC. These are kids who are supported by trust funds provided by wealthy parents. Even though they might be in their 30s and 40s, they do not have to work for a living. Imagine their children growing up and having parent role models who do not work, nor have to work.

I at first thought this was a myth until I found out there are lots of them in this situation.

If you hold your nose and vote for the lesser of two evils, you still end up with evil. The reason the GOP/Republican Party will never be changed/reformed, is because people will continue to vote for imperfect Republicans. We have Joe Biden as a fraudulent President, because of imperfect Republicans.

Oz is not Romney. He’s far from perfect, but I don’t see him attacking Trump once he gets to Washington.

that’s ok him your idiot friends.

This is president Trump’s pick versus a scumbag leftist Democrat.

You might actually have this Democrat cause Trump to be arrested, impeached and convicted or kept out of office with election laws which Biden will sign.

but hey once again why should you be troubled with reality.

no its the “conservative” fools like you who will destroy our nation with communism.

in fact it was the jerks just like this who wouldn’t vote for Trump either.

I graduated high school at 17.

NEVER got a penny from my Dad after that.

I paid many of his expenses because his social security was less than $3000 A YEAR. By then I was 32 or so years old.

Bought his firewood & propane & paid his property taxes PLUS more.

What public records would show a private transaction?

Fetterman is the 54,000 man.

That would make a great ad.

Why don’t you go one step further Fetterman pretty much lived in his parents basement. And as far as the people who will not vote for Dr. Oz even though they claim to be Republicans the human condition that one must be right Trumps everything with a lot of people. In the stock market these people are called suckers because they know they were right when they bought that stock even though it collapsed by 100%. But they were right and they’re broke or they have dead money. Being right and making money is wonderful but being right and losing your country sucks.

I hope you told him he had better not count on anyone supporting his choice next time.
