The beginning of Fetterman’s extended hospitalization occurred in the middle of February.
On Wednesday, Pennsylvania Democrat Senator John Fetterman made headlines after flubbing his opening statements upon his return to the Senate.
In the middle of February, Fetterman checked himself into the hospital due to his depression and stayed there for a week. This week he resumed his duties in the Senate.
The Democratic senator from Pennsylvania who suffered a stroke during his campaign is back at work leading a Senate committee subcommittee on food and nutrition, specialty crops, organics, and research.
People reacted to a stuttering audio of Fetterman’s speech after he had been hospitalized for months.
The podcast’s presenter, Jewels Jones, called the footage “frightening,” and Byron Donalds’ communications director, Harrison Fields, poked fun at Dianne Feinstein’s response as a Democrat from California.
Remember being cautioned from criticizing a leader due of his alleged “disability”? Breanna Morelo, a journalist, wrote these lines. There is a proverb that reads, “Well, now that he’s back from a two-month vacation, he’s trying to get back to work…”
To paraphrase author Savannah Hernandez: “I’ve heard second graders who could read better than this.”
That’s terrible, Hernandez said.
“It’s sad, but true,” Fetterman spokeswoman Joe Calvello told Fox News Digital, “that some people seem to get a kick out of attacking John because his stroke caused him to have trouble processing sounds.”
Calvello remarked, “Republicans have already tried everything they could to hurt John’s health, but Pennsylvanians stood up for him in a big way.” To paraphrase, “As a senator, John fights for forgotten communities and all of Pennsylvania’s people, no matter what they do on social media.”
At a Monday subcommittee meeting, Fetterman was the first to bang the gavel. He was released from the hospital on a Wednesday.
The senator did not grant an interview on his first visit to the Capitol Building since taking office in January.
Mr. Fetterman went for a laid-back style by donning shorts and a hooded black sweatshirt.
