John Fetterman returned to the Senate after a lengthy stay in the hospital.
Everyone immediately noticed something.
A damning photo of John Fetterman exposed a secret he doesn’t want anyone to know.
Fetterman spent 44 days in the hospital receiving treatment for clinical depression.
The New York Times reported that the Pennsylvania Democrat entered the hospital after the reality that the near-fatal stroke he suffered last May — the severity of which Fetterman and his campaign hid from the voters — would impair him cognitively and physically for the rest of his life.
Fetterman returned to the Senate to cast a vote wearing his blue-collar cosplay costume of a hoodie and shorts.

The 6’8” goateed Fetterman built his political brand by giving off the impression of an average Joe that worked a double shift at the steel plant when he was the mayor of Braddock.
Fetterman’s earthy look led to national attention.
In reality, Fetterman is a pampered child of privilege who attended the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and lived off an allowance from his wealthy parents until he was nearly 50.
The Daily Wire reports:
The lieutenant governor — who bills himself as a progressive friend of the working class — survived for his 13-year tenure as mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, thanks to his parents’ money. Fetterman, age 52, was elected in 2006 and left the position in 2019 after being elected to his current position. In 2015 alone, his parents gave him $54,000, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. As mayor, Fetterman received a $1,800 salary. For his part, Fetterman has stated that his family’s generosity allowed him to serve the public.
During the campaign Fetterman ridiculed Republican opponent Dr. Mehmet Oz as a dainty, out-of-state celebrity who owned ten homes.
But it turned out Fetterman owned eight properties that he failed to disclose in his financial reports.
The Daily Wire reported at the time:
The group determined from county court records that Fetterman owns eight properties in Braddock, Pennsylvania, where he served as mayor from 2006 to 2019. None of the properties appeared on Fetterman’s July 29 disclosure documents.
Though many of the properties — worth a combined $108,800 — are empty lots worth between $10,000 and $20,000, one of the holdings was a building structure worth more than $40,000, according to a report from the Daily Mail. “These properties don’t produce any income and are not investment properties, so John did not need to disclose them,” Fetterman spokesperson Nicholas Gavio told the outlet.
John Fetterman’s entire political persona is a fraud.
In the 1990s tennis superstar Andre Agassi coined the phrase “image is everything” in the commercials he would star in.
For John Fetterman that phrase rings 100 percent true as the phony image that Fetterman projects — dressing like a bum that sleeps under a bridge when in reality he is to the manner born — is the key to his political success.
