“Fetterman as a nominee at some point for president,” began Tur, eliciting a chuckle from one of her colleagues on the election panel.
“I know there’s some variables, obviously – but I just, you know, what he did in the super red, deep red parts of Pennsylvania, and the way that he ran ahead of Biden, ran ahead of Trump, and it just makes you wonder about his future.”
Fetterman was able to defeat his challenger Dr. Mehmet Oz (R-PA) despite having a stroke earlier this year, resulting in very noticeable aphasia.
Fetterman’s campaign even insisted that his debate with Oz include subtitles so viewers could better comprehend the intermittent gibberish spewing from his mouth. To cover for their cognitively injured candidate, Fetterman’s team insisted the subtitles were “delayed” and “filled with errors.”
Nexstar chief communications officer Gary Weitman responded to the allegations, all but solidifying what we already knew. It was a lie.
“The closed captioning process functioned as expected during rehearsal and again during tonight’s debate. We regret that Mr. Fetterman and his campaign feel otherwise,” said Weitman.
To this day, Fetterman refuses to give voters peace of mind and release the medical records from his stroke.
NEW: Mehmet Oz says in a statement that he called Democrat John Fetterman to congratulate him after projected win in Pennsylvania.
