Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman (D) raised eyebrows Friday evening with a nonsensical answer that he gave during a cable news interview.
The segment comes after Fetterman suffered a stroke several months ago from which he has not fully recovered, and has thus faced lingering doubts on the campaign trail about whether he is fit to serve in the U.S. Senate.
“First, I just wanted to check in and see how you’re feeling and how you’re doing,” leftist MSNBC host Chris Hayes said.
“I’m doing fan-, I’m doing fantastic,” Fetterman claimed. “And, and, uh, it’s not about kicking balls in the authority or anything.”
