Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman finally “returned” to the campaign trail after ignoring his doctor for years and suffering a massive stroke. That “return” looked a lot like box-checking for the senate candidate, though.
Democrat Fetterman is running against Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz in the 2022 US Senate race in Pennsylvania.
In what was obviously a tightly controlled environment, Fetterman only appeared for 11 minutes, wearing a hoodie in summer weather and being backed up by his wife. Now, the first footage of the event has been revealed, and it shows a man who is not alright.
He can barely speak.
Fetterman struggled to recall words as he spoke to rally goers this weekend.
Multiple times throughout his brief remarks, Fetterman, seemed to completely blank out before returning to his incredibly generic remarks. That’s almost certainly a remnant of the stroke and something that the Democrat has been unwilling to be transparent about. To this point, he’s hidden behind his social media personality, carefully crafted by staffers to make him appear quick-witted and funny. What was shown on that stage was anything but that, though.

Our packed rally in Erie had me feeling so grateful 🙏
I'm ready to win this race the only way I know how:

Not only is John Fetterman not well after his stroke, he got an allowance from mommy and daddy until he was 50 years old.
Fetterman has been supported by his parents up until recently.
The Philidelphia Inquirer recently covered this.

Public records show — and Fetterman has openly acknowledged — that for a long stretch lasting well into his 40s, his main source of income came from his parents, who gave him and his family $54,000 in 2015 alone. That was part of the financial support his parents regularly provided when Fetterman’s only paying work was $150 a month as mayor of Braddock, a job he held from his mid-30s until he turned 49. Partway through his tenure, in 2013, he moved to an industrial-style loft he purchased from his sister for $1 after she paid $70,000 for it six years earlier.
According to Democrats, Fetterman’s most egregious action was back in 2013 when he chased a black man down the street who he thought was involved in shootings in his neighborhood. Fetterman then pulled out a shotgun on the black man who it turned out wasn’t involved in the shooting.
The perfect Democrat we can call him Biden 2.0
