Fetterman is ducking requests to hold a debate with Dr. Oz, and in response, the Republican candidate campaign came out swinging.
“If John Fetterman had ever eaten a vegetable in his life, then maybe he wouldn’t have had a major stroke and wouldn’t be in the position of having to lie about it constantly,” Rachel Tripp, Oz’s senior communications advisor, said.
Part of Tripp’s response was a swing back at Fetterman’s campaign mocking a recent Oz commercial.
Folks, that hit a nerve causing Democrats and the media to flip out.
I had a stroke. I survived it. I’m truly so grateful to still be here today.
I know politics can be nasty, but even then, I could *never* imagine ridiculing someone for their health challenges. pic.twitter.com/0fJHESjt4l
