It’s a bit of a sore eye for the Democrats

On Morning Joe, Ellise Jordan was talking to a panel of voters about John Fetterman, the Pennsylvania Democratic candidate for the US Senate and his stroke recovery. One voter questioned whether Fetterman would be affected by his auditory processing for 6 months or the rest of his life. He then said it was a bit of a sore eye for the Democrats. This is a mashup of “a black eye” (blemish to one’s reputation) and “a sore spot” (a topic that makes one angry or uncomfortable).

A big thanks to Vicki Ameel-Kovacs for “spotting” this one.
