Democrat Senator John Fetterman’s been out of the Senate for months.
Now Fetterman is back.
And John Fetterman showed up in Washington and this odd thing happened.
John Fetterman entered the hospital in February to receive treatment for clinical depression.
The New York Times reported Fetterman’s depression stemmed from the fact that Fetterman hustled back on the campaign trail after suffering a near-fatal stroke last May and did not take enough time to recover.
Democrats felt Fetterman was the only candidate who could win the Senate race in Pennsylvania and critics believe the party pushed Fetterman to finish a race he was not physically or mentally up for.
When Fetterman returned to the Senate the corporate media played right along and acted like it was completely normal that Fetterman refused to take questions from reporters.
“It’s great to be back. Thank you,” Sen. Fetterman says as he enters the Senate. He didn’t take questions on his way in. He has been away from the Senate since mid-February after checking himself in for clinical depression. He checked out a couple weeks back. pic.twitter.com/Acm9glkYgm

What liberal activists in the media like CNN’s Manu Raju did not want to draw attention to is the fact that Fetterman cannot take off-the-cuff questions from the press.
Fetterman’s stroke left him impaired to the point that he cannot carry on simple conversation without computer monitors and transcription software showing him visually what the other person is saying.
Democrats and Fetterman successfully hid the truth about Fetterman’s physical and cognitive condition from the voters during the election.
The corporate media played a major role in this deception as reporters refused to make the fact that Fetterman would not make his doctors available to answer questions the central issue of the campaign.
Instead, the media harped on the fact that Fetterman’s Republican opponent Dr. Oz once called a veggie tray “crudité.”
Members of the press knew that the stroke Fetterman suffered was far more serious than the campaign let on.
But if the election turned into a referendum on Fetterman’s fitness for office Dr. Oz would win.
Reporters now openly root for Democrats so they were not about to devote flood-the-zone coverage to a story that could cost Democrats control of the United States Senate.
