Fetterman Still Struggles w/ Comprehension Ahead of Debate

(Chris Parker, Headline USA) Last month, one of Pennsylvania’s most prominent Left-leaning newspapers demanded that John Fetterman stop dodging debates with his Republican opponent, Dr. Mehmet Oz, in their bid for a Senate seat during next month’s midterm elections.

Fetterman has been avoiding debates after a stroke earlier this year inhibited his ability to speak. Now, less than one month from the midterms, Fetterman still seems to be struggling with comprehension, reported the New York Post.

The latest disturbing stumble occurred during an interview with Dasha Burns at NBC News. It was his first one-on-one interview since the stroke.

“We had a monitor set up so that he could read my questions,” Burns later recalled, “because he still has lingering auditory processing issues as a result of the stroke, which means he has a hard time understanding what he’s hearing.”

Despite that, Fetterman still “had a hard time understanding our conversation.” Fetterman acknowledged during the interview that he is still struggling with the lingering effects of the stroke. He also had a difficult time trying to cover his own soft-on-crime past.

A growing number of experts and media outlets are expressing doubts on Fetterman’s ability to withstand the stresses of serving in the Senate after observing his months-long struggles.

“John Fetterman is either healthy and he’s dodging the debate because he does not want to answer for his radical Left positions, or he’s too sick to participate in the debate,” Oz previously ​said.

“I don’t know if he’s medically fit — although I’m a doctor, I probably should have an opinion on it. But the fact is, nobody knows because none of us have had access to his medical records.”

The reaction from a friendly media trying to help Fetterman through a softball interview likely didn’t ease any angst over his condition.

Burns conceded that during “some of the small talk prior to the interview before the closed captioning was up and running, it did seem that he had a hard time understanding our conversations” and that Fetterman “also has some problems, some challenges with speech.”

Oz did promise to release his own medical records as part of his campaign for the Senate seat in September.

“I am going to release my medical records…as soon as I get them all collected from the hospital. I’m hoping by tonight or tomorrow morning. There is obviously paperwork you have to fill out, even if you are a doctor, but you will have them for the weekend.”
