Cloistered at Walter Reed, Fetterman Runs
His Senate Operation From Afar

Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 3/9/2023 8:51:33 AM

WASHINGTON — In a cheerfully decorated common room at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, with floral paintings adorning violet walls, Sen. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania begins most days meeting with his chief of staff, who arrives around 10 a.m. carrying a briefcase full of newspaper clips, statements for him to approve, legislation to review and other business of the day. (Snip) Doctors caring for him have said Fetterman should limit his exposure to cable television, the internet and social media — a major information detox for someone whose obsession, and occupation, is politics. Fetterman, 53, rushed back to the campaign


The NYT scolds critics but paints a picture of Fester being completely controlled by staff and other outsiders.

I’d bet big money this reporter never saw the vegetable version of Uncle Fester. She got the story from his assigned handlers who can actually communicate in an understandable language. This story is a fine example of pure government propaganda.

If he is physically capable of meeting with his staff - then get yer large rear end back into the office. So just how is being "depressed" make you unable to function in the office but okay in the hospital room? Bad enough his parents supported him for decades but now the US taxpayer is supporting this person.

I'm assuming that the Times did not physicially see Senator Uncle Fenstermann for this puff piece. And this "Fettermann rushed back to the campaign" baloney ... Fettermann was so absent on the campaign trail that even Joe Biden was jealous. I believe he was recovering from his stroke (as he should have been) most of the summer and made only a few scripted, short campaign appearances as well as an interview or two and that disaster of a debate. It's amazing what being able to stuff the ballot boxes can accomplish.

I’m probably alone in this, I don’t like Democrats nor their “agendas” but it’s clear this man has not been in control of his life, his detestable, power hungry wife has been. He’s been used, and that’s sad. The goings on in the Senate and constant pressure are too much for him. I’m reminded of the monster in Frankenstein with Gene Wilder. Fetterman broke down.

Agree with #1. One does not get confined to a hospital for weeks and months on end just for depression. Did Fetterman try to commit suicide? If he had a stroke or heart attack, they would just say so.

Even if EVERY elected politician was REQUIRED to be a mental patient, the nation couldn’t be in much worse shape than today’s leaders could engineer. That so few Americans object to what has become of the nation is sad indeed. How is it that a screaming mentally-challenged minority makes insane demands on the majority?

The Democrat standard for avoiding debates, public appearances, and informal exchanges with reporters was set long before Biden's hiding during the pandemic, but Fetterman has now set a new standard. And that's the one that will prevail in 2024.

Reading he has lost 100 lbs. and (not reading) that thing is gone from his neck, looks like in the picture. What a life. Living the life in a hospital play room and earning $200,000/year for nothing. His employee is keeping things moving along, including new legislation from him. That's part of the problem right there. The staff of the electeds never changes. They run things and the elected just focuses on raising money and getting re-elected.

He is not "Cloistered" in a nunnery...he is locked up in a military psych ward. Long term hospitalization for "Severe depression" implies that he is/was suicidal and at risk of self harm, and/or, harm to others. The "Artwork" on the pink walls is all "Pretty flowers" drawings by other inmates, has he moved on to making wallets or moccasins yet?. Is lobotomy or electroshock therapy part of the potential treatment plan?

According to the White House, the proposed budget would strip $31 billion worth of "special tax treatment" for oil and gas company investments in addition to other fossil fuel tax preferences. The release further criticized oil companies for raking in record profits last year and for failing to invest in greater energy production.
