Fetterman Trolls His Geography-Challenged Senate Opponent

This reminds me of the old Journey song, when Steve Perry sang:

"He's just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit."

Turned out that was Windsor, Ontario in Canada, which Perry later admitted. Still a classic lyric though.

It's doubtful that Oz will admit his mistake, however.

Once again, Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman has trolled his opponent Dr. Oz by doing little more than pointing out how embarrassing Oz’s own words are.

Fetterman recently saw a massive fundraising haul off of a video mocking Oz’s viral “crudités” debacle, in which the wellness grifter tried to blame Joe Biden for the high price of groceries while putting together the world’s worst veggie tray.

Now, Fetterman is highlighting one of his go-to criticisms of Oz: that he is not even from the state he wants to represent.

“I grew up just south of Philadelphia,” Oz says in a clip of a Fox News interview before the video cuts to a map showing exactly what exists “south of Philadelphia.” Which, if you’re wondering, is not more Pennsylvania.

The Washington Post’s Dave Jorgenson, who was responsible for spearheading the paper’s wildly popular TikTok account, called the video “hands down the best TikTok I’ve seen from a political figure.”

Dave Jorgensen is a big fan of Fetterman's trolling, and probably from Philly.
