To the shock of millions of Americans, Pennsylvania voters elected John Fetterman to the U.S. Senate. Fetterman suffered a stroke during his campaign. And all signs suggested that he had in no way recovered. Even during his debate with Republican candidate Mehmet Oz, Fetterman could barely finish a sentence.
This week, the Democrat was sworn into office. Kamala Harris, who is desperate for attention at this point, decided to take a picture with Fetterman and his family. But the man appeared just as confused and disoriented as ever. And his wife had to rein him in.

That is painful to watch. Fetterman looks worse than he did before. The man seems deflated, irritated, and totally unaware of what is going on. Does he even know that he’s a senator? He just stands there, like a zombie, as things are happening around him.
His wife seems to be the only one who knows what’s going on. She corrals the man, prompting him to smile creepily at the cameras. After everything’s said and done, Fetterman shuffles off like a nursing home patient, ready to be taken to bed.
Is this real life or a clown show? How on earth did a man like this get elected to the Senate? Does anyone think he will be an effective leader when he is being carted around like an ox? Will he be able to understand bills that come to the Senate floor?
Can we trust that his vote will be informed? Or will he just say “Aye,” when the Democrats poke him with a stick?
Fetterman doesn’t even look all that happy that he’s a senator. The look on his face is somewhere between annoyed and confused. The man is better off in a hospital bed, with doctors trying to make sense of his damaged brain.
If anyone thinks this man is going to make it through a six-year term, they’re dreaming.
