Trainwreck: Fetterman Struggles with Speech, Comprehension in Debate with Dr. Oz

NBC’s Dasha Burns was attacked mercilessly by the liberal media for commenting on John Fetterman’s health following a one-on-one interview with the Democratic Senate hopeful. She simply reported that, in her observation, he struggled with his speech and comprehension and that prompted a barrage of tweets, blasting her judgement and journalism. From Fetterman’s wife calling for a network apology and “consequences” for Burns, to her own NBC colleagues publicly questioning her observations, Burns endured a swarm of criticism for a simple observation.

John Fetterman and Doctor Mehmet Oz held their one and only Pennsylvania Senate debate tonight and it was a disaster for Fetterman.

He opened the debate with, “Hi, Goodnight everybody!”

And it went downhill from there.

During the debate, Fetterman could not keep up with the conversation, despite it being written on a Teleprompter for him.

He repeatedly lied about his views on fracking. Fetterman is against fracking. He always has been.

Tonight, he said he supported fracking.


Then when pushed by the moderator on whether or not he supports fracking, Fetterman added, “I support fracking and I don’t I support fracking and I stand, and I do support fracking.”


John Fetterman was asked about how raising wages would hurt small business owners.

Moderator: Small business owners who have told us that if the minimum wage were increased to $15 an hour, it would put them out of business. You have 30 seconds.

John Fetterman: We all have to make sure that everyone that works is able to that’s the most American bargain, that if you work full time, you should be able to live in dignity as well. True. And I believe they haven’t had any businesses. You can’t have businesses being subsidized by not paying individuals that just simply can’t afford to pay their own way.

He completely fell apart when he was asked if the Biden Admin has overspent.

Moderator: Has the Biden administration overspent and, if so, where do you think [it] should be cut? You have 60 seconds.

*Uncomfortable pause*

John Fetterman: Here’s what I think we have to fight about inflation here right now. That’s we need to fight about: inflation, you know, right now because it’s a tax on working families.


Fetterman also rambled about price gouging, Dr. Oz’s “10 gigantic mansions,” and corporate greed.


Fetterman was brutally mocked, following his disastrous performance in the debate tonight.

NewsnNation’s Leland Vittert had this to say:

“We said this would be unlike any debate you have ever seen, and we perhaps understated just how different this would be. Clearly, the biggest issue was John Fetterman’s health and his ability both to comprehend speech and then to speak coherently on the issues of the day.”

Even Chris Cuomo at NewsNation couldn’t come up with anything positive to say:

“Voters, I think, saw things that will definitely change the state of this race.”


Time reporter, Charlotte Alter, was particular brutal in her review of Fetterman’s performance.

“so far this is a disaster for Fetterman”

Fetterman was so bad that even Joe Scarborough couldn’t defend him:

“John Fetterman’s ability to communicate is seriously impaired. Pennsylvania voters will be talking about this obvious fact even if many in the media will not.”

Like Joey ‘Fingers’ Biden , John Fetternan is a disaster in the making . As to his Dr saying he is fit to serve , said Dr has been a long time contributer to the Democrat Party and has also contributed to Fettermans campaign so of course he would feel Fetterman is fit .
I watched the debate and while not impressed by Dr Oz , I felt that Fetterman was like a one legged man in a butt kicking contest . In other words , a helpless JOKE !
