Donald Trump said over the weekend that Democratic senate candidate John Fetterman dressed “like a youngster getting high” and flat-out accused him of using hard drugs. (Watch the video below.)
“Fetterman supports taxpayer-funded drug dens and the entire decriminalization of illegal drugs, including “heroin, cocaine, crystal meth, and ultra-lethal fentanyl,” Trump said at a GOP rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, on Saturday. “And by the way in which, he takes them himself.”
Trump, who was stumping for GOP candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, offered no proof, and Fetterman called out the previous president and Oz as “desperate and sad dudes” who’re telling “increasingly lies,” in keeping with CBS Pittsburgh.
A recent poll shows Fetterman, the state’s lieutenant governor, leading the previous talk show host Oz, a longtime Recent Jersey resident who has been accused of carpet-bagging to win the GOP nomination in Pennsylvania. Trump was also there to support Doug Mastriano, a state senator who trails within the polls against Democrat Josh Shapiro, the state’s attorney general, within the race for governor.
Fetterman planned to seem at a parade on Monday with President Joe Biden in Pittsburgh, where perhaps the candidate will further address Trump’s accusations.
