(NRSC News) – The John Fetterman health saga continues just as most people with working brains predicted would be the case before he miraculously won the PA Senate race in November.
While it’s pretty clear John Fetterman is no more fit for office now than he was then, his handlers continue to prop him up and essentially lie about his condition. The only problem is, no one’s buying it.
As you recall, last May, Fetterman suffered a stroke just prior to the Democratic primary in the Keystone State which he won by a large margin. The stroke, however, left him with serious cognitive disabilities as is common in stroke victims.
Most people who have suffered a stroke that severe, however, don’t run for office while they are still recovering. John Fetterman decided to stay in the game (no doubt at the urging of his wife and the Democratic Party) and it was, quite honestly, hard to watch.
Fetterman could barely speak coherently and required a closed captioning system just to be able to understand what was being said to him. He needed to step down but instead he won a sketchy election and is now a US Senator.
He’s a US Senator that’s sitting in the hospital, that is, and most people saw it coming. He’s been hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a few weeks now but not for the stroke. This time for “clinical depression.”
On Tuesday, CNN congressional correspondent Manu Raju attempted to convince Americans that all is well with John Fetterman but anyone who’s ever had any experience with stroke victims and/or clinical depression can easily recognize things just aren’t adding up.
Raju, who is a leftist shill, offered an update on Fetterman’s health online Wednesday.
“John Fetterman is making progress in his recovery from clinical depression and could leave Walter Reed within next two weeks, a person close to the senator told me. The senator’s physician recently informed him that he will be ‘as good or better than his best days post-stroke,’” Raju tweeted.
Then he ran cover for his lengthy hospital stay: “Fetterman’s stay has lasted this long because the doctors have been trying to get his “medication balance exactly right,” per source. For instance, doctors learned his blood pressure med was too high, which may have contributed to dizziness when he went to GW hospital last month.”

The health update seemed questionable, at best, and Twitter users from both sides of the aisle did not hold back:
Prove it. Show video.

How on earth do you project a timeframe for managing a mental health problem so bad it landed you in the hospital? That’s not exactly how mental health works, especially clinical depression. It isn’t a broken bone.

This is ridiculous. Clinical depression is not something you "cure" in rehab. To be admitted for depression is not that common, let alone for this long. Someone is lying and Fetterman is not fit for office. https://t.co/XcNsrxetga

“as good or better than his best days post-stroke."
I'm sorry, but that still doesn't instill any confidence. Like, no confidence at all. Dude needs to be under constant care.

I had no idea the recovery from mental health issues and strokes was so simple and straightforward. The millions of people whose lives are wracked with depression and who've been severely disabled by strokes will be excited to hear this!

How does one “recover” from clinical depression?

I am a die-hard Dem who has been supporting Fetterman from the beginning; even so, he needs to consider his constituents and the country and step aside. He needs to heal, not keep up this charade.

What does that even mean? His post stroke days led him presumedly to severe depression. So the best of those days?

I like him. But he should start thinking about stepping down.
— Jeff Duran (@1211Jaguar) March 14, 2023
An unbelievable turn around, insofar as no one believes it. For chrissake, let the man heal. Is no one looking out for his well-being?
— Nerts (@vonbismark) March 14, 2023
Yes, and clinical depression requiring hospitalization is as bad as depression gets. Medications don't improve clinical depression and Fetterman sure as hell didn't go into the hospital to get psych meds adjusted, he was most likely suicidal. His stroke was also significant.

What’s happened to John Fetterman is sad. He’s being used as a pawn by the leftist political establishment (and his limelight-seeking wife) because getting a man in office who can barely think on his own was a better alternative than having him step down with no satisfactory replacement in an election that already required a substantial amount of cheating to win.
It’s utterly deplorable what’s happened in Pennsylvania and now the left is desperately hiding the truth about Fetterman’s condition, as was aptly pointed out by one Twitter user after another.
Pray for John Fetterman. He needs compassion and time to recover and heal. Ultimately he needs to step down but the wolves in the Democratic Party will never allow it.
