PA-Sen: Fetterman Calls Trump A “Jagoff”

FettermanDonald Trump is once again ruling the news cycle.

The 2016 Republican presidential front-runner, who will be speaking at the PA GOP’s Commonwealth Club luncheon on Friday, sparked a major uproar yesterday. Trump released a statement proposing to prohibit Muslims from entering the United States.

Braddock Mayor John Fetterman didn’t appreciate Trump’s comments and made that perfectly clear.

Fetterman’s entire email is included below:

“Donald Trump is a jagoff.”*

“*For friends in other parts of the state, here is the definition of jagoff: an American English derogatory slang term from Pittsburgh English meaning a person who is stupid or inept. It is most prominent in the Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania areas. The Dictionary of American Regional English defines the term as a ‘general term of disparagement.’ Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jagoff.”

Jonathan Tamari of the Inquirer perfectly summarized how this statement fits into the dynamics of the 2016 Democratic Senate primary.

  3. Randy Paul-

    All three candidates are supposed to be at the PA Progressive Summit. I think/hope they will be debating.

  4. I agree with Brad C. So far, Fetterman looks like the best of the three candidates.

    Anyone know if a primary debate will be held? And when, roughly?

  5. I love it that Fetterman is not so politically correct! Good comment by him.

  6. Ha, good stuff. Love this guy.

    If you actually compare all three candidates, he’s the obvious choice for anyone who wants to elect an actual public servant rather than a corporate shill who has taken millions from the energy sector or a little man who lives in VA and thinks walking across the state is the answer to solving problems.

  7. Mr. Francis – I encourage your support of Mr. Trump’s potential independent bid for the presidency, and I hope you stay true to your word. It is one of the best things you could do for this country.

  8. I agree with Fetterman and we do not agree on many issues. It seems to me that he has values and principles.

  9. All that rambling just makes you look like a crazy person. At least have a tl;dr at the end.

    Also I checked your sources. They’re biased misinformed opinions. Not even close to substantial evidence.

    Try again next time.

  10. While the bloody war is going on with extreme Islam and the Muslims that turn radical, it’s only Trump who has the guts to speak out and talk about the importation of Syrian Refugees. Both political parties refuse to acknowledgement that the Imperial court of King Obama, his minions and the GOP hierarchy that they already aware the dangerous Jihardists have already infiltrated the mass of refugees and patiently willing to wait for a chance to reach America. The butchers don’t care about living or dying, as long as their agenda is fulfilled and that is world domination.

    ONLY DONALD TRUMP CAN MAKE AMERICA WHOLE AGAIN. TRUMP WILL CLEAN UP THE CORRUPTION IN WASHINGTON. THE OTHERS EXCEPT FOR TED CRUZ ARE THE PAWNS OF BIG BUSINESS. A PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL NEVER SELL US OUT TO THE WEALTHY.

    In the meantime with have massive financial problems at home, with Obama spending $$millions of dollars on his trips around the world, taking his retinue with him. The other growing battle within our country is Obamas lax laws on immigration. Once you read the notification from Stephen Frank’s daily intelligence, http://www.capoliticalreview.com /you will start to get angry and feel that awful sickly, hollow feeling in the pit of your stomach.

    Illegal Aliens ELIGIBLE for $10 Billion in Tax Credits—YOUR $$$

    As you borrow money or spend too much on your credit card to get through the Christmas Season, your local illegal alien has a banker to help them through the season—YOU. Oh, the more children they have, the more money you lose for your children.
    “Illegal immigrants are eligible to claim up to eight refundable tax credits under federal law, according to a report from the Congressional Research Service.
    One of the tax credits available to illegal immigrants under the Internal Revenue Code is the additional child tax credit, which allows families with children to reduce their tax liability by $1,000 per child. If the value exceeds the tax liability they owe, the family receives a refund for the difference.
    “The Tax Inspector General of Treasury says that the extra child tax credit, in a single year, doles out $4.2 billion a year to illegal aliens,” said David North, a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies. “Based on that number I would assume that other tax credits for illegal aliens amounts to more than ten billion a year.”
    Why hasn’t this stopped? Why do criminals continue to bleed honest Americans, especially our children? Who does Obama represent—who do you think!

    Illegal Immigrants Eligible for Up To Eight Refundable Tax Credits
    Expert: Tax credits for those here illegally amount to more than $10 billion a year
    BY: Ali Meyer, Washington Free Beacon, 12/7/15

    Illegal immigrants are eligible to claim up to eight refundable tax credits under federal law, according to a report from the Congressional Research Service.
    One of the tax credits available to illegal immigrants under the Internal Revenue Code is the additional child tax credit, which allows families with children to reduce their tax liability by $1,000 per child. If the value exceeds the tax liability they owe, the family receives a refund for the difference.
    “The Tax Inspector General of Treasury says that the extra child tax credit, in a single year, doles out $4.2 billion a year to illegal aliens,” said David North, a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies. “Based on that number I would assume that other tax credits for illegal alien’s amounts to more than ten billion a year.”
    In addition, illegal immigrants are eligible for the earned income tax credit, which allows low-income families to receive a refundable tax credit even if they do not owe any taxes.
    They are also eligible for the American Opportunity Tax Credit, which is a tax credit for tuition, and the Health Coverage Tax Credit, which is a tax credit for insurance costs. Undocumented immigrants can also receive a tax credit for tax withheld on wages, for fuel excise taxes, any overpayment of taxes, and tax withheld at source for nonresident aliens and foreign corporations.
    Refundable credits can be larger than an individual’s tax liability, which means that illegal immigrants may receive the difference as a cash payment from the IRS. Nothing in the Internal Revenue Code prohibits illegal immigrants from receiving these tax credits.
    “Speaking generally, the Treasury Department is as casual about the negative impacts of illegal aliens as are other parts of the Obama administration, but with a twist,” says North. “Only the Treasury pays illegal aliens to stay largely through the various refundable tax credits.”
    “If the IRS were not grinding out billions in refunds to the illegal aliens, some would—without any other pressure—decide to go home,” North said. “And the end to these payments would also meet another goal—more money to pay off the national debt.”
    “Congress could do something about this,” said North. “Treasury could do something, but neither has?”

    I am NOT going to stop bring to attention the illegal immigration we have; its out-the-window in costs and the fact that neither party will do nothing about it. Donald Trump will! And instead of the Obama administration and his cronies, with the GOP establishment joining in one big expensive budget in pandering to the millions of illegal immigrants/migrants, Trump will cut off all welfare to all those being illegally here, and the dead beats who collect taxpayers money but decline to work.

    We should demand the Trump wall that will cut off the undesirables, especially the welfare illegal aliens. We must also demand MANDATED E-Verify, adjoined to biometric exit/entry visas.

    If DONALD TRUMP IS CONTINUED TO BE BULLIED BY THE GOP HIERARCHY, HE WILL BECOME AN INDEPENDENT AND MY FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND OLD VETS IN MY CIRCLE WILL BE JOINING HIM.

  11. PoliticsPA needs a “like” button for stories such as this one.

    If Trump’s appeal is pretending to “tell like it is” (ie reinforcing ignorance to the bigoted), then Fetterman offers a good antidote in the form of straight talk that doesn’t mince words.

    Bravo.

    We all think this about Trump, but McGinty is too prissy to talk this way, and Sestak always sounds fake when trying to sound tough.

    When all three are together debating, will there be a seven second delay for more of John’s colorful take on politics? I hope not. If we’re old enough to vote and watch the debates, we’re old enough to hear all the words.

  12. I like him too. If he can raise the money McGinty raises, then he could be formidable against Toomey. Otherwise our best shot to take back the seat is McGinty.
