Fetterman Undergoing Clinical Depression Treatment

Reports on Blaze Media revealed that Walter Reed National Military Medical Center received a famous patient in Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) on Wednesday. Fetterman is currently at the hospital and receiving treatment for clinical depression, according to his chief of staff, Adam Jentleson.

The Democrat senator’s political career has been littered with ailing health which has seen him go in and out of the hospital. Northern Irish journalist Niall Stannage confirmed this in a Tweet from his account that Fetterman checked himself into the hospital for treatment.

Last year, his participation in the election was in considerable doubt as he recovered from Stroke, and this kept him out of most election debates with Republican nominee Mehmet Oz.

Rebecca Katz, Fetterman’s campaign strategist, previously said that the senator’s occasional issues have no impact on his capacity to function as a senator. Her statement where she said, “John is healthy and fully capable of showing up and doing the work,” seems like she was merely doing what she had to do to secure her paycheck.

Fetterman’s campaign took a hit when he suffered a stroke last year. His statement recalling that he almost died opposes Katz’s effort to downplay the severity of his condition. Former US senator Pat Toomey (R-PA)had his say on Fetterman’s condition in his pre-election interview with Oz last year.

“It’s clear that he’s being dishonest. He’s either not as well as he claims to be, or he’s afraid to be called out for the radical policies he supports. It’s one or the other. I’m here to issue a warning to Pennsylvania voters. You can’t do the job of US senator sitting at home firing off snarky tweets,” Toomey said.

Democrat apologists tried to make light of Fetterman’s health conditions last November. However, Dasha burns, a journalist, called the public’s attention to the now-Senator’s comprehension issues pre-election. In their in-person conversation, Burns said that Fetterman didn’t understand what was discussed.

“There’s no secret that sometimes I’m going to miss words, and sometimes I’m gonna mush two words together, and that’s the truth,” Fetterman told the editorial board of PennLive.

Regarding Fetterman’s recent illness, his doctors have said he is receiving treatment voluntarily, adding that he is getting the care required to get back to himself.
