Fox News host Brian Kilmeade criticized the suitability of Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman for the U.S. Senate on “One Nation with Brian Kilmeade.”
BRIAN KILMEADE: The protection racket in politics is being played out before our eyes. Now we know because we’ve seen it all before. It’s been a long time. We are in 1919, and I am talking about the First World War, which has just ended. Woodrow Wilson suffers a severe stroke, leaving him incapacitated. No one knew until years later that this was happening. His wife, Edith, actually protected Wilson and moved into bedside government. She ran the whole administration without telling anyone.
OBAMA SILENT ON FETTERMAN’S SUPPORT AFTER DEBATE STRUGGLES
Meanwhile, another story, the 32nd President of the United States, FDR. FDR, of course, suffered from poliomyelitis and lost the ability to walk when he was around 39 years old. He went on to win four consecutive presidential elections, all in a wheelchair. But many didn’t even know he had a wheelchair. In fact, most of the country has not. He hid his disability, devising a method of walking in which he used a cane or braces for someone’s legs or arm for balance. His administration even deleted photos of him in a wheelchair and asked the Secret Service to destroy these photos taken by rogue journalists.
Fast forward to the sixties, John F Kennedy. He had a debilitating back injury that many were not even aware of during his years as president. He actually wore a back brace and was treated with a slew of opiate painkillers, lidocaine injections, tranquilizers. Can you believe that? You’d think there’s no way these protection rackets could actually happen these days with all this media and cameras everywhere. But you would be wrong.
PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER STAFF TORN FOR SAID FETTERMAN WON DEBATE WITH OZ
For example, a pandemic forced a 77-year-old man Joe Biden in the basement where he could hide some of his flaws and failings. With just two debates to reform that and his drive-in appearances, Biden made it to the White House, and as the gaffes piled up, the media went into hiding.
Listen, John Fetterman is not well. It’s crystal clear to anyone who watched this debate this week, or if you just watched it for the first time, it won’t answer any questions from the press. He organizes an event, they do not last more than 10 minutes. And what makes it worse? He will not publish his medical records since his stroke.
He is not fit for the position of senator, but his enablers go above and beyond to protect and cover him.
The protection racket must stop. We can have…candidates, that’s fine, controversial candidates, always, even radical candidates, sometimes. But we can’t have incompetent candidates, and we just have to understand that Fetterman in Pennsylvania can’t do the job.
