Major Democrat Senator rushed to the hospital for this terrifying reason

Democrats have a slim majority in the Senate. They can’t afford to lose anyone.

Because a major Democrat Senator rushed to the hospital for this terrifying reason.

Senate Democrats have been relishing their victory in 2022 for months now.

But now it’s all been thrown into question after a top Senator was sent to the hospital.

Mere days after being hospitalized for feeling “lightheaded,” newly minted Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) admitted himself into the hospital to obtain treatment for “clinical depression,” according to his chief of staff.

Adam Jentleson, Fetterman’s chief of staff, said in a statement on Thursday:

Last night, Senator John Fetterman checked himself into Walter Reed National Military 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… On Monday, John was evaluated by Dr. Brian P. Monahan … Monahan recommended inpatient care at Walter Reed. John agreed, and he is receiving treatment on a voluntary basis… After examining John, the doctors at Walter Reed told us that John is getting the care he needs.

This comes after the senator was hospitalized last week after “feeling lightheaded.” Fetterman’s communication director, Joe Cavello, stated at the time that “initial tests did not show evidence of a new stroke,” but that additional tests will be performed.

The senator’s wife, Gisele Fetterman, said in pair of tweets on Thursday, following the news of her husband, “After what he’s been through in the past year, there’s probably no one who wanted to talk about his own health less than John.”

“I’m so proud of him for asking for help and getting the care he needs,” she added, asking everyone to please respect their family’s privacy during the “difficult time.”

The senator suffered a stroke while campaigning for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat in Pennsylvania.

Yet, as previously stated by Breitbart News:

Fetterman [on the campaign trail] routinely appeared disoriented in public appearances throughout the campaign, regularly mispronouncing words and confusing sentences. After a disastrous interview with NBC Nightly News, reporter Dasha Burns drew criticism for noting how Fetterman’s stroke impaired him in a variety of ways, from his comprehension to his basic speech, to the point of him needing a closed captioning system during their in-person interview.

“Fetterman’s campaign required closed captioning technology for this interview to essentially read our questions as we asked them,” she told fellow reporter Lester Holt. “In small talk before the interview, without captioning, it wasn’t clear he was understanding our conversation.”

If you remember back, Fetterman started off his debate by saying goodbye:

But the worst part of the night was when he was pushed on his previous opposition to fracking.

Fetterman stumbled out a response that boiled down to him saying “I support fracking” repeatedly:

Despite his terrible debate performance, he went on to defeat Republican opponent Mehmet Oz in November.
