Pennsylvania Democratic Senate nominee John Fetterman talks about the effects of his stroke after a recent interview went viral detailing his difficulties with auditory processing.

FETTERMAN: “The elephant in the room for a lot of folks is that I had a stroke. And there are there's no, there's no secret that sometimes I'm going to miss words and sometimes I'm going to mush two words together and that's the truth. And that truth could have been fatal and I'm just so grateful that I actually survived. And not only did I survive, I had the opportunity to be able to be the candidate in the race right now. And with Dr. Oz, as a doctor, has chosen to mock that or it to make light of it or to say things that I just don't understand how a doctor you know, would you know will one somebody that was sick to remain to be sick.”
