Tucker Carlson wants to talk about my tattoos. So let's talk about them.

From NBC News | Opinion by John Fetterman, Pennsylvania Lt. Governor

I have nine dates tattooed on my right forearm. Each one is a day on which someone died violently while I was mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania.

Earlier this month, Fox News host Tucker Carlson went on a nearly 20-minute-long rant about me. The whole thing was as unhinged as you’d expect, but one line that stood out was about my tattoos. “All your stupid little fake tattoos,” he said, calling them a “costume.”
