Democrat John Fetterman uses Adam Levine sext to troll Dr Oz: war in Pennsylvania continues as Republican criticizes his rival for only agreeing to ONE debate and focuses on stroke recovery in series of attacks
- Democrat John Fetterman used a sext from Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine in his latest effort to troll his Republican Senate opponent, Dr. Mehmet Oz
- Fetterman posted one of the grabs of Levin's messages: 'F***kkkkkk. I'd do anything for it,' which the singer allegedly wrote to a woman named Maryka
- 'Dr. Oz trying to get money, fame + power,' Fetterman tweeted Wednesday night
- It's Fetterman's latest attempt to ridicule Oz as an out-of-touch, rich guy from New Jersey
- Oz has made the Democrat's stroke recovery a central part of his run against him and highlighted media reports suggesting Fetterman is hiding from a debate
Fetterman posted one of the grabs of Levin's messages: 'F***kkkkkk. I'd do anything for it,' the singer allegedly wrote to a woman named Maryka, including a spiral eyes emoji.
'Dr. Oz trying to get money, fame + power,' Fetterman tweeted Wednesday night.
Fetterman, Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor, suffered a stroke in May, just days before the Democratic primary, and spent most of the summer off the campaign trail.

On Thursday, Oz shared a clip of Fox News' Bret Baier talking about how Fetterman 'doesn't take any questions, he does very, very few interviews ... and he only agreed to that one debate.'
The day before, Oz said he would be releasing his medical records as he shared an op-ed from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which endorsed former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, saying that Fetterman 'ought to release the full results of his cognitive tests and other medical records, and make his doctors available to the media.'
The Post-Gazette also called it a shame that Fetterman would only agree to one debate, scheduled for October 25, that would last 60 minutes.
The PG suggested the debate was scheduled too late in the election cycle, now that many Pennsylvanians opt to use mail-in ballots.
'One compromise would be to limit debates to 60-minutes but conduct two of them instead of one,' the newspaper's editorial board wrote.
Fetterman has said he still struggles with 'auditory processing' and there will be accommodations made for him during the late-October debate.
The Democrat previously backed out of a debate pitched by KDKA-TV for early September, claiming Oz's campaign was making fun of him for recovering from the stroke.
'Today's statement from Dr. Oz's team made it abundantly clear that they think it is funny to mock a stroke survivor. I chose not to participate in this farce,' Fetterman said.
The list alluded to Fetterman's stroke by saying that Oz would permit the Democrat to have 'his notes in front of him along with an earpiece,' bathroom breaks at any time and said Oz's campaign would 'pay for any additional medical personnel [Fetterman] might need to have on standby.'
'Doctor Oz promises not to intentionally hurt John's feelings at any point,' it also said.
