Pennsylvania Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman’s latest attempt to troll his Republican opponent, Dr. Mehmet Oz, involved a sext from Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
Fetterman published one of Levin’s message captures:
‘F***kkkkkk. I’d do anything for that,’ the singer allegedly wrote to a woman named Maryka along with an emoji of spiraling eyeballs.
Fetterman tweeted on Wednesday night, ‘Dr. Oz is attempting to gain wealth, notoriety, and power.’
It is Fetterman’s latest attempt to portray Oz as an out-of-touch, wealthy New Jersey native, as Oz has made the Democrat’s recovery from a stroke the centerpiece of his campaign against him.
In May, just days before the Democratic primary, Pennsylvania lieutenant governor Fetterman suffered a stroke and spent the majority of the summer off the campaign road.

Fetterman published one of Levin’s message captures: ‘F***kkkkkk. I’d do anything for that,’ the singer allegedly wrote to a woman named Maryka along with an emoji of spiraling eyeballs. Fettman stated, “Dr. Oz is pursuing wealth, notoriety, and power.”
The day prior, Oz announced that he would release his medical records and shared an opinion piece from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which endorsed former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, stating that Fetterman’should release the full results of his cognitive tests and other medical records, and make his doctors available to the media.’
The Post-Gazette also stated that it was unfortunate that Fetterman would only commit to one 60-minute debate on October 25.
The PG argued that the debate was scheduled too late in the election cycle, given that the majority of Pennsylvanians now vote by mail.
The editorial board of the newspaper remarked, “One compromise might be to limit discussions to 60 minutes, but hold two instead of one.”
Fetterman has stated that he still issues with ‘auditory processing,’ and accommodations would be made for him at the debate in late October.
The Democrat had already withdrawn from a debate proposed by KDKA-TV for early September, claiming that Oz’s campaign was mocking him for recovering from a stroke.
Dr. Oz’s crew made it quite apparent in a statement released today that they find it amusing to insult a stroke sufferer. I decided not to join in this charade,’ stated Fetterman.
Oz’s team issued a list of ‘concessions’ the Republican candidate would make if Fetterman agreed to attend an event on September 6.
The list made reference to Fetterman’s stroke by stating that Oz would allow the Democrat to have ‘his notes in front of him along with an earpiece,’ take potty breaks at any time, and that Oz’s campaign would pay for any additional medical professionals Fetterman might require.
It further stated, “Doctor Oz swears to never intentionally hurt John’s feelings.”
