As we always say, there are consequences to elections. And the state of Pennsylvania might soon learn this the hard way. Despite all the troubling signs, voters elected Democrat John Fetterman to the U.S. Senate. The man suffered a stroke last year and had clearly not recovered by the time of the election.
Even during his swearing-in, he looked as if he had one foot in the grave. This week, he was rushed to the hospital over reports of feeling lightheaded. He has yet to be released from the hospital. And reports are more troubling than the left is willing to admit.
From Fox News:
Newly elected Sen. John Fetterman has described his severe hearing disability as causing him to hear the voice of the teacher from the “Peanuts” cartoon when listening to people speak…
The senator, who is in the hospital after experiencing lightheadedness Wednesday, has also struggled to adjust to life in the Senate, given the challenges of recovering from his stroke and the need for technological tools to help him conduct conversations with staff and colleagues.
Oh, this guy’s totally fine! Apparently, Fetterman’s stroke was so severe, it left him unable to actually listen to people. When speak talk to him, it sounds to him like the teacher from the Peanuts cartoon.
For those who don’t remember that, the voice was the sound of a warbling horn. Uh… yeah, that’s pretty bad, John. And this has been the case since his stroke last year. His office outfitted him with a device that provides close captions so he can actually know what people are saying.
But that’s the least of his problems. Why in the world did Democrats think it was okay to run this guy, when he is this impaired? Are they so greedy for power that they would collude to help this guy win an election–someone who can’t speak straight or hear people?
Yeah, this is the same party that ignores Joe Biden’s obvious cognitive decline. Perhaps they just assumed Fetterman would be yet another puppet in the Senate who’d vote with the party.
Why do we need competent senators, anyway, right? They just have to vote “Yes” to whatever the lobbyists want!
The fact that Democrats–and his own family–aren’t demanding Fetterman step down in light of his problems is criminal. The man is unwell, case closed. He’s currently in the hospital, because his ailments are so bad. He can’t even hear people speak. And it seems he cannot process information properly.
Maybe, out of basic human decency, Democrats have to take a knee on this one.
- John Fetterman remains in the hospital after suffering lightheadedness.
- According to reports, he cannot understand what people saying.
- This has been going on since he suffered a stroke last year.
