Tucker Carlson Goes After John Fetterman’s Health In Ugly Attack


The Fox News host delivered a lengthy tirade in regards to the Pennsylvania candidate, who had a stroke in May, days before winning the Democratic primary.

Carlson argued that Fetterman can be unable to perform his duties as a senator because he’s “brain damaged” and “the guy can’t talk.” (See the video below.)

After taking day without work to recuperate, Fetterman returned to the campaign trail in August. His campaign has stated that he has lingering issues with auditory processing, a standard condition in stroke survivors that may improve over time.

“To be absolutely clear, the occasional issues he’s having with auditory processing don’t have any bearing on his ability to do the job as senator. John is healthy and fully able to showing up and doing the work,” his campaign said last month.

Carlson insisted “we’re not being mean,” but said of Fetterman’s speaking skills: “It’s not even value making fun of. It’s sad. But when cognition goes, when the flexibility to think clearly disappears, and in his case it obviously has, what’s left? The talking points. That’s all of the stays.”

He also said it was shocking and insulting that the Democratic Party had not replaced Fetterman since he suffered the medical emergency.

“However the Democratic Party prefers it that way. They did it with Biden. They’re trying again with Fetterman. Run a wax dummy for office! Individuals who can’t form complete sentences apparently seem less threatening to voters.”

Fetterman’s ongoing recovery has develop into a Republican attack point, including from his Republican opponent, TV doctor Mehmet Oz.

The Democrat has identified the irony that a supposed medical skilled was attacking someone over their health.

Two sitting senators who also had strokes this yr told HuffPost Wednesday they’ve been back at work since and consider Fetterman would have the option to do the job too.
