As a political observer/commentator, last night’s debate between John Fetterman & Mehmet Oz was a new experience. It was truly something I have never seen before. It was so shocking and disastrous that it may have been the most important debate in modern history for a major candidate.
The debate ended after an hour, which was very brief. It was clear that Fetterman’s campaign and Fetterman’s wife, as well as mainstream media, were lying about the Democrat’s condition. You won’t be able to see all of it unless you actually watch it.
This is only a small selection.
Fetterman: “I absolutely support fracking.”
Moderator: “In a 2018 interview, you said ‘I don’t support fracking at all. I never have.”
Fetterman: “I’ve always supported fracking.”

Now, the Fetterman campaign is trying desperately to find an explanation. They have now settled on closed captioning as the explanation.
This is from The New York Post.
We were delighted by John’s performance. He performed admirably tonight considering that he was still recovering after a stroke.
Calvello said John won many exchanges, counter-punched aggressively, and pushed back against Oz’s cruelty, attacks, and cruelty.
A claim like this is difficult to understand. It is possible to suggest that Fetterman was also supposed to be able to read the answers.
No one was concerned that the Democrat might have misunderstood a question. It was what he said that ignited the political world.
The debate host reacted with fury to Fetterman’s campaign, knocking down all their excuses and stating that the system works exactly as they expected.
Nexstar Communications chief Gary Weitman said in a statement that it was regrettable Mr. Fetterman has now criticized the closed captioning process used at Nexstar’s debate.
“Both candidates agreed to the technical setup for closed captioning several weeks ago. It was put in place at the request Fetterman campaign.”
Weitman concludes the discussion by saying that closed captioning worked as expected during a live debate.
“The closed captioning process was as expected during rehearsal and again tonight during the debate,” Weitman said.
This whole thing is ridiculous, and I don’t say it lightly. They could vote with Mehmet Oz. This would set a precedent for public officials whose mental capacities don’t matter.
