DR. PHIL ON FETTERMAN: ‘Would You Get on a Plane if That Guy Was the Pilot —Hell No!’

During a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, host Joe Rogan and celebrity psychologist Dr. Phil McGraw discussed the mental fitness of U.S. Senate candidate in Pennsylvania John Fetterman.

“It might just be f***ing propaganda, it’s so dangerous some of the gaslighting that you’re seeing,” Rogan said. “I’m sure you saw that debate between Dr. Oz and that guy Fetterman for the Pennsylvania Senate. And the gentleman Fetterman had a stroke five months ago. And he’s clearly compromised, to the point where while he’s communicating, he’s not just stumbling. He is kind of lost in thought and can’t form a coherent sentence and bounces around from it. He looks, he looks troubled. And I was watching MSNBC and they were trying to say, ‘well, I mess up sometimes when I talk and you know, I misspeak and I stumble on my words.’”

“Of course you do, everybody does, we’re human. I do it all the time,” Rogan continued. “But there’s a big difference between the overall one hour debate. You’re looking at a guy who seems to have something really wrong with his brain. And for you to gaslight and pretend that’s not the case just because it doesn’t fit with your narrative, that’s not news. That’s propaganda and it’s f***ing dangerous.”

Dr. Phil, while stressing he hasn’t tested Fetterman, admitted he’s “not at his best.”

“And I’m not trying to be unkind. He had a stroke,” McGraw said. “I mean, the poor guy, he had a stroke.”

“Just ask yourself,” McGraw added, “Let’s say you were getting on an airplane and the airline pilot had had a similar cognitive impairment. Would you get on? Well, hell no.”
