As John Fetterman Receives Treatment for Depression, We Must Ask How Much Longer He Can Actually Serve

Senator John Fetterman of Pennsylvania has officially checked himself into Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment regarding severe depression.

In a statement issued by Fetterman’s chief of staff, Adam Jentleson, Fetterman has experienced depression “off and on throughout his life” and the burdens that come with the life of a senator have not made it easier.

While anyone with two braincells who has seen ten minutes of Fetterman since he ran for Senate against Doctor Oz last year can tell that the man is not physically or mentally fit to serve in any public office, his health still continues to be somewhat taboo to discuss despite the fact that his own people have said that his “special needs” have become a hinderance to regular senate activities.

I’m not saying this to attack or insult the man, but anyone acting like everything was fine before today is being genuinely dishonest.

According to Jentleson, “On Monday, John was evaluated by Dr. Brian P. Monahan, the Attending Physician of the United States Congress. Yesterday, Dr. Monahan recommended inpatient care at Walter Reed. John agreed, and he is receiving treatment on a voluntary basis.”

It’s worth noting that it wasn’t even a full week ago that Fetterman was hospitalized for “lightheadedness,” and not another stroke.

“After examining John, the doctors at Walter Reed told us that John is getting the care he needs, and will soon be back to himself,” said Jentleson.

Ongoing Issues

Throughout the 2022 midterm election cycle, it became harder and harder for the Democratic establishment and the media to hide the fact that John Fetterman was not physically fit to serve in the US Senate, nonetheless the LT. Governorship which he previously served in after suffering major stroke that same year.

While Democrats labeled his opponent Mehmet Oz a “threat to democracy” and “threat to public health,” anything south of outright comparisons to Adolf Hitler like they paint over every Republican who threatens to beat them in a general election, the same people were parading this injured and incapable man around as if those who pointed out his challenges were the issues.

Fetterman’s own wife, Gisele Fetterman, even threatened an NBC reporter (far from being a right-wing provocateur), saying that there should be “consequences” for pointing out his inability to make “small talk” without captioning tools.

It has become more difficult for Fetterman’s team of enablers to cover up the obvious; they they care so much about their ability to maintain power for the Democrat’s ultra-progressive agenda that they’re willing to parade around a man who cannot comprehend basic speech, who should instead be probably receiving full time care, to do so.

Not Everything is Fine

Within the same frame of time that Fetterman was hospitalized in early February, reports began to come out exposing just how bad Fetterman’s condition really is.

The Political Insider reported that Fetterman is “struggling to adapt to life in the Senate as he adjusts to auditory issues” as a result of the stroke he suffered. These issues are so severe that it results are that Fetterman hears “voices that sound like the teacher in the ‘Peanuts’ cartoons.”

This isn’t a joke — John Fetterman as an acting US Senator has the ability to vote on taxes, healthcare, spending, and whether or not our nation should engage in war.

A report by The New York Times detailed how far colleagues, staff, and the sergeant-at-arms have gone in order to aid Fetterman in day to day tasks. Some who spoke with the Times stated that it has been “extraordinarily challenging.”

How far are the people closest too him willing to push him just to maintain this seat? That’s the only question people should be asking.

  • The people have spoken. The low information voters who voted their feelings rather than with their brain preferred the brain addled Fetterman and Biden over their intellectually qualified rivals.

    • It says everything about the voters. They want the Democratic Party Socialist agenda, the check in the mail rather than the time clock.

  • He can serve as long as he’s alive.
    I don’t think there is any Constitutional mandate stating he has to be able to see, hear, talk, or do anything but be alive.
    His wife or any legally designated person could be his representative, essentially making all his decisions for him in the Senate.
    He should stay there as long as he is legally alive.
    That’s essentially what happened when John McCain was in the Senate.
    He could resign, but how would it benefit him. If he resigns, he will be replaced by a Democratic Governors appointment anyway, so Policy would be identical.
    The Democratic Party members of the Senate are all interchangeable, and that’s what the Presidential election in 2020 was all about as well, Biden staying in the basement and the media campaigning for him on the Democratic Party agenda.
    It was no secret John Fetterman had severely impaired speech and speech recognition facilities during his campaign following his stroke, but was elected by the voters of Pennsylvania because he is a Democrat and would follow the Democratic Party agenda of the Biden Administration, so he should be allowed to serve out his term, since I don’t see how he could be forced out.

  • Fetterman is too ill to work. He was incoherent and reeling when he tried to campaign. He looks emaciated and feeble now! His wife should be ashamed.
