Fetterman Introduces Himself as “John FetterWoman” (WATCH)


Democrat Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman spent 9/11 at an abortion rally in Blue Bell, PA.

Fetterman has been dodging a debate with Republican candidate Mehmet Oz since suffering a stroke and blood clot in May.

His campaign said his stroke recovery will determine the conditions under which he would agree to a debate against Oz.

Fetterman has struggled to speak coherently since suffering a stroke.

Sunday was another disaster.

Fetterman introduced himself as “John Fetterwoman.”

Yes, really.

The Pennsylvania Democrat held up a bright pink t-shirt and said, “My name is John Fetterwoman!”


Fetterman finally agreed to one debate with Oz last week.

However, details about the time and location remain secret.

He told Politico that he will debate Dr. Oz “sometime in the middle to end of October.”

If Fetterman and Oz debate at the end of October, it will be well after early and mail-in voting starts.

From Politico:

John Fetterman said he is committing to attending one debate with his Republican opponent, Mehmet Oz, in the closely watched battle for the Senate in Pennsylvania, but his campaign is still discussing accommodations for his auditory processing problems.

The announcement comes as Oz has ramped up pressure on Fetterman, who suffered a stroke in May, to agree to a series of debates beginning in early September.

“We’re absolutely going to debate Dr. Oz, and that was really always our intent to do that,” Fetterman told POLITICO in an exclusive interview. “It was just simply only ever been about addressing some of the lingering issues of the stroke, the auditory processing, and we’re going to be able to work that out.”

Fetterman declined to specify which debate he will attend or provide an exact date for it, though he said it will “be sometime in the middle to end of October” on a “major television station” in the state.

He also said that the campaign is looking at the possibility of using a closed captioning monitor for the event so that he does not miss any words as he continues to recover from his stroke.
