Skip to comments.'Hi, goodnight everyone': Confused John Fetterman implodes in debate with Dr. Oz as even CNN and liberal commentators admit 'painful spectacle' shows he has not recovered from stroke

* John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz on Tuesday night held their one and only debate in their race to replace retiring Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey, which will be decided on November 8
* Democratic Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor Fetterman, 53, had a stroke on May 13 and referenced his condition immediately on Tuesday, calling it 'the elephant in the room'
* Fetterman used closed captions to follow along with moderators and Oz due to auditory processing issues
* He stumbled over affirming his support for fracking in the Keystone State despite being presented with a 2018 interview where he had broadly opposed it
* The Democrat also refused to say he would release his full medical record when asked during the debate
* 'My doctor ultimately believes that I'm fit to be serving and that's what I believe,' Fetterman said
* While some praised Fetterman for his bravery in participating in the debate, others expressed concern
* David Axelrod, Obama's former senior advisor, said the debate 'did not help' Fetterman, while CNN's panel agreed that the Democrat failed to shine
* Nearly 640,000 early votes have already been cast in Pennsylvania
John Fetterman's debate performance on Tuesday night was greeted with dismay by many of his sympathizers - with a CNN panel widely panning the Democrat hopeful.
Separately, Chris Cuomo said he 'struggled' and Barack Obama's former senior adviser saying Fetterman 'did not help' his cause.
'Hi, goodnight everyone,' Democratic populist Fetterman opened the night's highly anticipated match-up.
Fetterman, 53, is suffering some lingering speech and auditory impediments from a stroke he suffered in May.

Fetterman belongs on life support.
Oz should have gotten him to say “Joe Bin” a few more times
The ‘fracking’ question was a death blow to Fetterman.
I think almost everyone agrees on that.
I think he was retarded before the stroke. Now he is a retard with brain damage.
Never underestimate the stupidity of democratic voters!
This has to worry Dems, but not for the Pennsylvania race.
It puts a huge spotlight on the brain addled, incompetent, grifter in the Whitehouse..... ............
I would have loved to tap into his earpiece to hear that conversation. Wait, turns out their is a transcript:
Campaign Manager (CM) OK Fets, you got this buddy!!! Just be a warm body and let the mail in vote drop at 3AM carry you home.
Fetterman: Is that you God, I told you not yet!!
CM: Yes Fets, its God, do as I say and I’ll let you stay a little longer. Just until you are sworn in and we can get the dem Gov to appoint your replacement.
Fets: Otaay.. Will I get a new hoodie?
CM: Here we go, lead off with Creduites. Hit that hard. Oz hates WaWa and Pennsylvanians love WaWa No, not credits, CRED U as in YOU, EATS
Fets (to the moderator): Oz wouldn’t give me credits for my treats.
CM: CRED. YOU EATS dumbass.
Fets: Sorry God
Moderator: Who are you talking to.
CM: I’m apologizing to God for the GOP not doing better than Oz
Fets to the Mod: I am sorry for God not being for abortion.
CM: We will hit abortion later. Will you please focus and listen to me. Did you take your meds?!?!. Go with tough on crime when you were mayor of Braddock.
Fets to Mod: I was taking meds when crime was hitting Brad’s Dock. And I love chasing colored people with shotguns. Better and hunting deer.
Oz: Are you ok, do you need a doctor. I am one.
CM: Ok, reset here. We are off to a rough start. Let’s hit the whole Oz doesn’t live in PA thing.
Fets: Eff you Ox go back to New Place where you live and not here like me.
CM: It’s OZ, Ohhhh, Zeee, OZ, not Ox. An Ox is an animal. While it may be cute if you were lucid, its just creepy. Keep it simple man!!!
Fets to Moderator: Sorry, Oz lives with an Ox in a state with people. And abortion is good. I like abortion when my wife is sleeping
CM: I quit buddy, you are on your own.
America does not need to look any further than the Fetterneck campaign for clear proof that the Democrat party no longer possesses an ounce of integrity, if they ever did.
They do not care about you. They do not care about your problems. They do not care about this country.
Look at the current crop of U.S. senators. People like Feinstein or Grassley. Then tell me how Fetterman is any worse

These "consultants" in the Deep State behind these twitching suits needs to be exposed and charged, starting with fraud.
The worst non-answer I think I've ever heard in a debate.
Doesn’t anybody or anything ever “explode” any more? It’s always “implode” these days, which makes no sense. And why is everything “implicit” now? Isn’t anything “explicit” in this world? Confusing.
Your post is implicitly explicit and may implode explosively................
Voters are generally stupid.
They don’t really care. Enough nitwits have already voted to make this a non-story. And enough nitwits will still vote for him even if he ate babies on live tv. They’re just trying to get more nitwits to vote for him from a sympathy angle now.
