Lies from the Left Dep't

March 5, 2023 --

This exchange between NPR's Ailsa Chang and a Cornell-Weill physician who also writes for The New Yorker appeared lat October. Four months LATER -- in the face of the doctor's rosy prognosis for Sen. Fetterman, the senator checked himself into Walter Reed Hospital for weeks of treatment for depression.

LPR offers the remarks below as evidence that the left, today, can't help but lie -- as it did in the matter of covering up the true source of the Covid-19 pandemic or, notoriously, assault President Trump by lies, and issue plenty disinformation about the infamous contents in the Hunter laptop.

Here are lies from the left on the mental condition of Sen. John Fetterman:

CHANG: Dr. Dhruv Khullar is a practicing physician at Weill Cornell and a contributing writer for The New Yorker. He joins us now. Welcome.

DHRUV KHULLAR: Thanks so much for having me.

CHANG: So you wrote about Fetterman for The New Yorker, and it does seem like, to you, he has mostly recovered as far as you can observe from a distance. And obviously, a stroke is something that can be extremely dangerous. But Fetterman, you know, he's back on the campaign trail. He's doing debates. He's doing interviews. Can you just sort of summarize for us some of the most apparent symptoms he still seems to be coping with?

KHULLAR: So there's no question that he's recovered significantly over the past four or five months since he had the stroke. But, you know, as was obvious to anyone watching the debate yesterday and who've seen him on the campaign trail over the past couple of weeks, he still has some deficits. He has difficulty finding the right word or pronouncing the right word. And he also has auditory processing issues. And so he's not able to always hear words as clearly as he used to be able to. And he uses closed captioning to kind of read the words and then respond as he can.

CHANG: Right. But just to be clear, in terms of his, like, cognitive abilities, his ability to think, to make decisions, those abilities don't seem to be impaired, right?

KHULLAR: Yeah. As a doctor, you know, you never want to weigh in on someone that you haven't personally examined. But as far as we can tell, his intellectual abilities remain intact.
