Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) said Democrats who publicly criticize President Joe Biden may as well put on a MAGA hat.

In a conversation about the role Pennsylvania will play in the upcoming election as one of the major battleground states on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday, Fetterman took aim at some of his fellow Democrats for their lack of support for the president.

“It’s going to be very competitive,” Fetterman said about 2024. “The president is going to win here in Pennsylvania. And I’ve always believed that whoever wins Pennsylvania is going to be the next president as well.”

“It’s going to be difficult,” the senator continued. “We all have to lean in on that.”

Fetterman then brought up “all kinds of Democrats” who are “criticizing the president, too, publicly.”

“I don’t understand why,” Fetterman said. “I don’t know what’s in it for you to do that, whether you’re just chasing clout or you want to make it in the news or anything like that. But if you’re not willing to just support the president now and say these kinds of things, you might as well just get your MAGA hat, because you now are helping Trump with this.”
