    Fetterman’s Hometown Paper Turns Against Him Due to ‘Troubling’ Tendency, Endorses Dr. Oz

    Published on

    Republican Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz may have been the most taken aback of all on Sunday when he learned that the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the local daily of his Democratic rival, the state’s current Lt. Governor John Fetterman, had endorsed him.

    “In a race on which much depends and little is certain, Mehmet Oz has shown he is better equipped to lead and deliver for Pennsylvania,” the Post-Gazette editors said after fairly evaluating each nominee’s advantages and disadvantages.

    In the recommendation, it was mentioned that Fetterman’s “life experience and maturity”—or rather, lack thereof—was a cause for worry. He is 53 years old and has held the position of lieutenant governor for the state for one term, which the Post-Gazette described as having “a job with few official responsibilities, aside from serving as acting governor whenever the governor leaves the state. He is the former mayor of Braddock, a borough of 2,000 residents. Although the job paid $150 a month, Mr. Fetterman could make it, in effect, a full-time position because of his family’s support.”

    “Mr. Fetterman, despite his hoodies and shorts, has little experience in holding real jobs or facing the problems of working people,” the editors accurately remarked.

    Even while the editorial made no mention of Fetterman’s evident cognitive impairments brought on by the significant stroke he had in May, it was scathing of his refusal to make his medical records public.

    The refusal of Fetterman to comply “suggests an impulse to conceal and a mistrust of the people. … If you want privacy, don’t run for public office.”

    Unexpectedly, the editors brought up an incident that took place in 2013 while Fetterman was serving as mayor of Braddock. He “pulled a shotgun on an unarmed black jogger” after hearing gunshots. Although they believe it was “an honest mistake,” they found it “troubling that Mr. Fetterman never apologized for it.”

    They were troubled by the fact that, during the debate with Oz last week, he lied about his stance on fracking.

    On the other hand, they emphasized Oz’s lowly beginnings and how “largely through his own talent and determination.” he was able to earn fortune, recognition, and success.

    More on this story via The Western Journal:

    They praised Oz for spending “a lot of time in poor urban neighborhoods, talking to people and, most important, listening and learning.” And noted they are “encouraged that Mr. Oz is portraying himself as a unifier who will work with Democrats to get things done for Pennsylvania.”

    “Mr. Oz is likable, engaging, extremely smart and a good listener. Yes, he can sound like a smooth-talking salesman, but that may be what it takes to get deals done in Washington,” the endorsement said.

    Upon hearing he’d been endorsed by the Post-Gazette, Fox News reported “Oz called the Post-Gazette a ‘fabulous paper’ that would not normally endorse a Republican.” CONTINUE READING…
