It’s been a tough few weeks for John Fetterman who just can’t seem to pull it together. After his disastrous debate performance against Dr. Oz, he’s now faltering while answering simple questions from the media. This is not good news for a campaign that’s already on life support.
During an interview on CNN Tuesday, John Fetterman, the Democratic candidate for Senate in Pennsylvania, continued to stumble over his words when discussing inflation and whether or not his medical records should be released to the public.
The NY Post reports, as Fetterman continues to recover from a stroke he suffered in May, he used a closed-captioning monitor during the interview. He faces GOP celebrity heart surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz.
While speaking with host Don Lemon, Fetterman dropped words and appeared to struggle to complete sentences as he did during the debate with Oz.
The Daily Caller reports, in response to a question about what he thought was causing inflation, one of the top issues on voters’ minds heading into next week’s midterm elections, Fetterman strangely began talking about tax cuts.
Lemon also asked Fetterman if his doctors should brief the press before election night. In response, the candidate defended not being transparent with Pennsylvania voters by not releasing any medical information.
It’s game over for the Fetterman campaign. With yet another botched media appearance, it’s clear that he’s unable to handle the pressure and handle basic questions. It’s time for him to quit the race and give the clear win to Dr. Oz. And perhaps more importantly, it’s time for Fetterman to seek medical help before anymore damage is done to his reputation and credibility. His inability to function under simple interview questions casts doubt on his ability to handle even tougher issues as Senator. This latest blunder only solidifies that fact. It’s time for Fetterman to throw in the towel and focus on getting the help he clearly needs.
