Fox News host Tucker Carlson has called out the large bump on Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman’s neck. Following Fetterman’s stroke, there have been a lot of questions about his health.
Carlson’s segment about Fetterman on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” came after The Washington Post Editorial Board wrote an op-ed saying Fetterman “should release his medical records for independent review.”
The Post op-ed on Fetterman stated, in part:
“He stammers, appears confused and keeps his remarks short. He’s held no news conferences.”
“The Fetterman campaign squandered credibility by concealing from the public for two days after his stroke that he had been hospitalized. It waited weeks longer to reveal a more complete picture of his medical history, including that he had been diagnosed in 2017 with cardiomyopathy.”
As my colleague Sister Toldjah reported, the Washington Post also noted that Fetterman needs to debate more than once. A free exchange of ideas is great for democracy. The same democracy that Democrats claim is under attack.
Carlson opened up his segment by saying:
“Last week, we told you in some great detail about a man called John Fetterman, who was running for the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania. What we didn’t mention at the time was Fetterman’s running mate because honestly, we didn’t know he had a running mate.”
“But we learned the identity of this running mate yesterday when Fetterman for the first time in memory removed the filthy, DNA-covered hoodie that, as it turns out, conceals quite a bit underneath. So beneath the foul smelling hoodie was this protrusion. As you can see, it’s not quite a goiter, but it’s definitely bigger than a pimple. It’s a lump.”
As my colleague Nick Arama reported, Fetterman’s lump on his neck should be a cause for concern.
Fetterman has been wearing hoodies and neck coverings for some time. It’s raised some questions as to why he’s wearing scarves even in the heat of the summer. Now we may have an answer to that question after a photo of him went viral on Monday and Twitter began looking at his neck.

It is concerning as he could become a U.S. Senator.
“But what sort of lump?” That’s really the question. Does this lump have its own Instagram? Does it plan to run for statewide office in Pennsylvania? Don’t laugh. A party that put Joe Biden in the White House is perfectly capable of building a whole campaign around any insentient lump of flesh.”
“In fact, they’re running John Fetterman, who can’t even talk. So keep your eyes on this lump. It could very well run with Kamala Harris in 2024.”
