Posted on 10/25/2022 8:25:01 PM PDT by conservative98
Media figures and conservatives reacted to Democrat John Fetterman’s debate performance against Republican Mehmet Oz during the debate on Tuesday night, calling it a “sad” disaster.
As Breitbart News reported, Fetterman had a poor showing during the debate, mostly due to his speech disabilities stemming from a stroke earlier this year. Routinely, Fetterman struggled to give coherent responses to moderator questions as he confused words and paused awkwardly.
Reporter Charlotte Alter of TIME called the debate a “disaster” while MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough called it “painful.”
so far this is a disaster for Fetterman— Charlotte Alter (@CharlotteAlter) October 26, 2022
I spoke to Fetterman recently, and I expected him to be very bad tonight. But he was much much worse than I expected (and much worse than in our one-on-one conversation.)— Charlotte Alter (@CharlotteAlter) October 26, 2022
This is painful to watch regardless of one’s politics.— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) October 26, 2022

I'm catching up on the debate, and it looks like lots of folks owe an apology to @DashaBurns. She reported on very real problems. It's not ableist to wonder if Fetterman is up to the job, and it's very reasonable for PA voters to take that question into account.— David French (@DavidAFrench) October 26, 2022
it’s very sad to see Fetterman struggle from his stroke, but politically, whoever is running his campaign should be fired.
how was this EVER agreed upon? it 100% would’ve been better to dodge the debates for him. @DrOz may won the election tonight. #PASenateDebate— Kenny Cody (@KDCodyTN) October 26, 2022
With even a remotely fair and honest press, most people know just how bad Fetterman is.
Fetterman’s bitchwife is just as guilty of spousal abuse as Doktor Jill is.
iF Oz did not win the election tonight, then there is no hope.
Joe Biden should be replaced by an animatronic version as the Hall of Presidents at Disneyland. Would be more lifelike and believable than the slow witted fool we see now.
As to Fetterman, don’t let him win and get his wife onstage for the role.
Most of the MSM has been lying for Fetterman for months. We know that now.
They knew his condition - they couldn’t have NOT known.
That’s what’s disgusting. It’s not a ‘mistake’ it’s a lie.
The MSM lied for Biden too.
And the MSM lies AGAINST REPUBLICANS - against Trump...against Jan 6 protesters
FOR DEMOCRATS TO HELP Democrats
AGAINST REPUBLICANS TO HURT Republicans
the Debate was a HUGE WIN for @droz and a Catastrophe for Fetterman. I hope "John" gets the help he needs. Dr Oz Is the Next United States Senator from Pennsylvania pic.twitter.com/BIqFSPBi6i— Greg Kelly (@gregkellyusa) October 25, 2022
And that's saying something!
I ended up watching this on some channel that has a show with Chris Cuomo and his guest was John Stirewalt.
They both surprised me with their absolute criticism of Fetterman and those who let him run.
Here is the debate:
So true 2 climbers in Jill and fetter and wife
Fetterman’s campaign cannot be rescued now, even though the majority of MSM Democrat pundits are working for the Democrat Party. Fetterman is a sinking ship.
That Chris Cuomo show was quite interesting. He had on a neurologist to comment on Fetterman’s performance.
She was quite clear that he may have cognitive issues as well as processing difficulties, and that to have a chance at improvement he’d need to devote a lot of his time to rehab.
She said his impairment raised questions about his ability to serve as a senator.
That was what Fetterman said at the BEGINNING of the debate: “Goodnight”.
Fetterman hurts the entire Dem. ticket in PA. Maybe some people will vote Green Party or Independent instead of Fetterman, since there are 5 candidates for Senate. Oz is the best candidate of the 5.
Maybe Fetterman was saying Goodnight to his own campaign.
I’m sorry to say this but I’m still afraid Fetterman will win. The polls shouldn’t have been close even before the debate.
