FETTERMAN FALLOUT: 'Worst Performance By Any Candidate I Have Ever Seen'

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.26.22

It was a rough night for John Fetterman.

During Tuesday night’s debate between Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman and GOP opponent Dr. Mehmet Oz, Fetterman seemed to constantly struggle to answer softball questions, even with the help of his closed captioning system.

Fetterman needs to see conversations transcribed to better understand them after suffering a stroke earlier this year.

The reaction on social media was brutal, with many insisting that Fetterman is unfit and shouldn’t be running.

“Even with the moderators constantly cutting Fetterman off to protect him from himself, there is nothing the media can do to spin this debate,” political strategist Andrew Surabian tweeted. “I have never seen someone so obviously mentally/physically unfit to serve in office than John Fetterman.”

“Just so we are all clear: that was Fetterman WITH weeks of prep and specialized computer assistance throughout,” former White House adviser Stephen Miller tweeted. “So what you just saw is the very, very best Fetterman can do. Which is terrifying.”

“Text from an old-school *Democrat* friend in PA: ‘What they’re doing to Fetterman should be illegal. This is clearly abuse. It’s insulting to us as Democrats to ask us to vote for a vegetable,'” tweeted conservative reporter Benny Johnson.

“You could tell when Fetterman tried to answer that fracking question he didn’t even know where he was. Feel bad for the guy in a personal sense, the people in his life should be getting him help, not subjecting him to this,” Jack Posobiec said.

“OMG John Fetterman it’s worse than any of us could have ever imagined. At this point the moderator is filibustering to make sure he doesn’t get any more Qs. I think that’s 4 in a row to @DrOz. Even today’s partisan hack media can’t cover for Fetterman being brain dead! #PASen,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted.


“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,” tweeted Joe Scarborough.

“This is the worst performance by any candidate I have ever seen in any debate. If this were a boxing match they would throw the towel in. This is sad. @JohnFetterman’s entire campaign should be ashamed for letting this happen,” conservative radio host Clay Travis said.
