Dem Senate Candidate Skips Debate Because His Speech Hasn’t Recovered After Stroke

U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman is skipping the opportunity to debate Trump-endorsed Dr. Oz because he’s still recovering from a stroke

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, the 53-year-old who is now the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, has now dodged a debate with his Republican opponent Dr. Mehmet Oz, citing the stroke he suffered earlier this year for making it medically impossible.

Fetterman suffered a stroke in May and remained hospitalized recovering even as Democrats voted for him to become their nominee. His wife delivered his victory speech while he was laid up in the hospital, and Fetterman’s in-person events have been sparse since his health scare.

Now, Fetterman’s campaign says the candidate’s speech and “auditory processing” abilities are still recovering three months after the stroke, and thus, the candidate will not be appearing in a televised debate with Oz.

Revealing that he would not be participating in the debate against Oz, Fettermain said “As I recover from this stroke and improve my auditory processing and speech,” according to a statement released by his campaign, he continued, “I look forward to continuing to meet with the people of Pennsylvania.”

Since his stroke, Fetterman’s doctor revealed that the Ivy League educated Democrat had ignored medical advice for at least five years prior to the stroke.

“I first saw John in 2017,” wrote Fetterman’s cardiologist Dr. Ramesh Chandra in May, according to Newsweek. “He was experiencing swelling in his feet and came to get it checked out. That is when I diagnosed him with atrial fibrillation, an irregular heart rhythm, along with a decreased heart pump.”

The physician revealed that Fetterman then ignored his doctor’s advice for half a decade.

“I had prescribed medications along with improved diet and exercise and asked him to follow up again in the following months,” wrote Chandra. “Instead, I did not see him again until yesterday. John did not go to any doctor for 5 years and did not continue taking his medications.”

Earlier this month, Valiant News noted that Fetterman had zero in person events planned. Instead, Fetterman’s campaign offered training opportunities for volunteers to learn how to “ratio” his enemies on Twitter. Following our reporting, Fetterman has held at least two in person events this month, including a rally with Joe Biden.

One campaign event revealed the extent of Fetterman’s stunted speech, leading some to question whether he currently has the mental and physical abilities to serve as a U.S. Senator.

Following his event with Biden yesterday, even CNN has admitted that while Fetterman manages to express Democratic talking points, his speech leaves something to be desired.

“Fetterman was on message,” the network reported, “but often halting in his speech and occasionally dropped words mid-sentence.”

    I have said many times that the Brain Damaged are the base for the Dems. What more proof do you need. And Biden is the same Brain Dead.

    We’re seeing the Biden strategy expanded. This guy will retreat to his basement and in 2024, do-nothing-about-elections Republicans will wonder why he’s Biden’s successor!

    It’s bad enough having so many brain-dead Democrats in Congress, but the one in the Oval Office, along with the mix of screwballs in his Cabinet that really worry me. Ability, Competence, and Experience no longer matter, so long as you are of the “correct” gender, race, or behavioral persuasion.

    So Fetterman wants the people of Pennsylvania to vote a brain-damaged, racist, hateful person into the Senate? I would vote for a armadillo over Fetterman.
