On Thursday, Democrat Senator John Fetterman checked himself into Walter Reed medical center to “receive treatment for clinical depression.”
“While John has experienced depression off and on throughout his life, it only became severe in recent weeks,” the statement confirms.

On Monday, John was evaluated by Dr. Brian P. Monahan, the Attending Physician of the United States Congress. Yesterday, Dr. Monahan recommended inpatient care at Walter Reed. John agreed, and he is receiving treatment on a voluntary basis.”
Last Wednesday, Fetterman was hospitalized after he was allegedly feeling “light-headed.”
According to the New York Times however, Fetterman’s condition is much worse than initially thought as they noted how Fetterman has not reacted well to becoming a Senator.
His transition has been “extraordinarily challenging” due to”strains of his recovery, which left him with a physical impairment and serious mental health challenges.”
The Political Insider reports:
The physical impairment mentioned by the New York Times that Fetterman contends with is an auditory processing issue that forces him to rely on tablets or screens to transcribe what is being said to him.
There is a monitor at his desk that adjusts to whether he is standing or sitting, there is a custom desk at the center-dais with a similar monitor, and there is a live audio-to-text transcription service for committee hearings.
NYT is ready to tell the truth about John Fetterman – who remains in the hospital for a 3rd day – now that the truth doesn't matter.

It gets even worse.
According to the report, Fetterman is unable to hear people because their voices are muffled and sound like the teacher’s voice in the ‘Peanuts’ cartoon.
Listening to people for Fetterman is like “trying to make out the muffled voice of the teacher in the ‘Peanuts’ cartoon, whose words could never be deciphered.”
The Times explained that Senate colleagues are forced to adjust to the Senator’s “special needs,” describing how Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is using a tablet to transcribe voices for him.
Months ago, NBC News reporter Dasha Burns tried sounding the alarm on Fetterman’s health but was widely silenced by the Democrat party and others in the media.
“In small talk before the interview without captioning, it wasn’t clear he was understanding our conversation,” Burns reported at the time.
Burns was slandered by many on the left but it now turns out she was most likely correct.
Sorry to say but I talked to @JohnFetterman for over an hour without stop or any aides and this is just nonsense. Maybe this reporter is just bad at small talk. https://t.co/CX9B7qWUaS

Spoke to disability advocates about that Fetterman interview. They’re not happy. https://t.co/XE8wBq2LNN

Political Insider continues:
Now the media finally feels free to admit that Fetterman has “special needs” and is basically hearing the teacher from “Peanuts” when he speaks to his colleagues.
The New York Times also points out that Fetterman is unable to speak with journalists in the hallways of the Capitol, something most lawmakers partake in, and he needs a team of staffers to make sure his technological aids are working properly.
He is not fit to serve in Congress. He needs rest and recovery time. those close to him who are forcing him to serve in the Senate should be ashamed of the abuse they are actively engaged in.
