Democrat Senate candidate John Fetterman went down in flames after a local voter called him out for being a chicken.
During a meet and greet, Fetterman was asked if he was “afraid to debate Dr. Oz.”
In response, his staff rushed him out of the room.
VOTER: “Are you afraid to debate Dr. Oz?”
JOHN FETTERMAN: *confused gibberish*
FETTERMAN STAFF: “Just keep walking!”
VOTER: “Are you going to debate him? He’s offered five debates.”pic.twitter.com/QwoK5pLmHq

We previously reported that Fetterman announced he would not attend a debate against Dr. Oz scheduled for September 6th.

Fetterman’s excuse for not attending the debate is that Dr. Oz was mean to him.
News: @JohnFetterman says he will NOT debate @DrOz during “the first week of September,” citing the Oz campaign’s statement below. He says he’s willing to have “a real conversation on this once Dr. Oz and his team are ready to take this seriously.”
Dr. Oz campaign swung back hard too…one of their “concessions” is that “Dr. Oz promises not to intentionally hurt John’s feelings at any point.”

To try and get some traction, Fetterman appeared on MSNBC, and things went terribly.
“How can we now running for the senate and you own ten homes and you are not unwilling to raise a minimum wage above seven dollars and twenty five dollars an hour.”
Why does it sound like Fetterman is speaking with predictive text on an iPhone keyboard?

Fetterman shouldn’t be on the campaign trail he should be at home resting.
