Fetterman Comes For James Carville Over Biden Prediction
Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) was not pleased with veteran Democrat strategist James Carville’s doubts about President Joe Biden’s chances of winning the 2024 presidential election.
During an interview with POLITICO, Fetterman called Carville’s claims out while responding to questions about Biden’s chances of winning in Pennsylvania.

Expressing confidence in the president’s chances of winning in Pennsylvania and the entire country in general, he stated, “All I do know is that the president will win Pennsylvania. And I do believe if he wins Pennsylvania, and I believe he will, he will be a second-term president.”
He went on to address Carville’s analysis, saying, “There’s a whole lifetime in politics between now and next November as well. I’m not worried about that. And I’m very vocal about this, too, while there are Democrats that are being very critical about the president.”
“I’ll use this [as] another opportunity to tell James Carville to shut the f*** up. Like I said, my man hasn’t been relevant since grunge was a thing. And I don’t know why he believes it’s helpful to say these kinds of things about an incredibly difficult circumstance with an incredibly strong and decent and excellent president. I’ll never understand that,” he added.
During an interview with CNN on Dec. 13, Carville had stated that Biden would lose the presidential election if it were held that day.
“It sounds to me like you think if the election were held today, Biden would lose,” anchor Kasie Hunt asked, to which Carville responded, “Me and everybody else.”
Carville has been warning of the less than bright prospects of Biden’s reelection efforts for a while. In September, he told comedian Bill Maher that former President Trump was more likely to win if the election was held in November this year.
“Let’s assume the election was November the third of this year and the candidates are Joe Biden, the Democrat, Donald Trump, the Republican, Joe Manchin, and Larry Hogan, No Labels, and Cornel West. Trump would be a betting favorite,” the Democrat strategist stated.
“If I told you I would give you even money, you would not take that bet,” he added.
