John Fetterman, a Democrat running for the Senate from Pennsylvania, has struggled as the election nears, according to a report by The Conservative Brief.
On Saturday, as he and former President Barack Obama were at a rally in Oakland, Pennsylvania, the American flags behind them were pushed over by the wind, which some saw as the ideal metaphor for his campaign.
"John Fetterman's rally is off to a great start…," The Republican National Committee said.

"The perfect metaphor for Fetterman's campaign," Donald Trump Jr. said.

GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel posted a copy of the video saying it was "A perfect metaphor for Democrats' control of Congress."

A new video has further harmed Fetterman's campaign, which is already in the process of collapsing. Since his dismal debate performance against Republican Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, questions about his suitability to serve as a senator have been raised, but a new video is generating even more issues.
"What is John Fetterman talking about?" the Republican National Committee understandably questioned in a tweet. Below is the most reasonable translation of what the Senate candidate was saying.
This is our best translation of whatever it is he was saying.
"Summer of 1986, I, uh, I think everyone that ever plays how football in, in high school was, you know, at a, kinda like a trade, a trade out kind of, uh, football camp. And, uh, wasn't, wasn't there wasn't any interest. I come play here. You know."
