Fetterman Endorses Romney For Next President Of Harvard University

Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) has endorsed failed presidential candidate and retiring Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) to serve as the next president of Harvard University amid ongoing controversy at the supposedly “Ivy League” school over anti-Israel, pro-Palestine protests — many of which have devolved into outright pro-Hamas, antisemitic protests.

In a Monday post on X, formerly known as Twitter, Fetterman endorsed a Washington Post op-ed from David Rosen that advocated for Harvard hiring Romney as its next president.

Fetterman, who graduated from Harvard in 1999 with a Master of Public Policy degree, declared in the post: “As an alumnus of Harvard, and after this mad season of antisemitism at Columbia, I

co-sign. This former Governor of Massachusetts doesn’t need a paycheck, but Harvard and its academic peers needs [sic] to recalibrate from far-left orthodoxy.”

The op-ed, titled “Harvard is in an almighty mess. Let Mitt Romney clean it up,” states that Romney would use his “unique bridge-building character” to break apart the “age of toxic polarization” at Harvard — even though the only Americans that Romney actually unites are moderate Democrats and establishment Republicans. However, that is still better than the current regimes at Ivy League schools like Harvard, who simply push far-left ideology while censoring and targeting anyone who disagrees.

Rosen explained that Romney — who graduated from Harvard in 1975 with a Juris Doctor degree — would be a welcome change from Harvard’s former president, Claudine Gay, who resigned in disgrace after her shocking plagiarism scandal and a disastrous testimony before Congress essentially excusing antisemitism.

“As we saw with the disastrous congressional testimony of then-President Claudine Gay, leadership matters,” Rosen wrote. “The university president must be the flag-bearer of our values. There is no doubt that there are other Americans of similar standing and stature, but Romney’s unique bridge-building character is precisely what Harvard needs in an age of toxic polarization. A Harvard alumnus, he is an eloquent and experienced administrator who has consistently demonstrated his political independence in defense of what is right, rather than what is expedient.”

Harvard’s current interim president is Jewish physician and economist, Alan Garber, who served as Harvard University’s veteran provost prior to taking the temporary position on Jan. 2, 2024, following Gay’s resignation.

This is far from the first time that Fetterman spoke out against antisemitism on the left and spoke favorably of Republicans. In fact, he was widely celebrated by Republicans and pro-Israel Democrats after he mockingly waved an Israeli flag at anti-Israel demonstrators being arrested outside the Capitol building.
