Gisele Fetterman attempts to pull the victim card, for herself, and Twitter’s NOT having it

The wife of Senator John Fetterman seemed to compare herself to rape victims because people called her out after she took off for Canada with her kids following her husband’s admission to the hospital for depression.

“In the worst moments of our lives, women are told it’s their fault. In case you need to hear it today: It’s. Not. Your. Fault. I will keep living and fighting with love. We all need more of it,” Gisele Fetterman tweeted, trying to engender some kind of sympathy.

She was mercilessly dragged on Twitter since people failed to see exactly how she was a victim in any of this.

The Washington Post, however, really played her up as a victim of “evil” conservatives.

“‘Jill Biden and Gisele Fetterman are failing their husbands,’ read the headline of a recent Washington Examiner column, the body of which went on to claim that ‘both of these men are arguably victims of terrible women,'” the outraged leftist media outlet reported.

“This column linked to a Twitter poll put up by conservative commentator Matt Walsh titled ‘Who is the worst wife in America?’ (In addition to Jill and Gisele, the other choices were Meghan Markle and Jada Pinkett-Smith, and no, I do not think it’s a coincidence that three of these four options are immigrants or women of color),” the author wrote, throwing the racism card as expected.

“I started my twice-a-decade rereading of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ a few nights ago, and one scene that sticks out every time I pick up the book is when the miserable Janine is made to recount her sexual assault, then to assume responsibility for it. Her fault, her fault, Janine’s fellow trainees chant, surrounding her and pointing. This is the magic trick of Gilead’s worldview; this is the magic trick of a lot of conservative worldviews. Men are the ones in charge of what happens, but the women are the ones to blame,” the writer said, ostensibly comparing the criticism of Mrs. Fetterman to rape victims.

“The attacks on Gisele, in particular, are dizzying in scope and ambition: It was her fault that her husband ran for Senate. It was her fault that he won. It was her fault that her children were not dressed more formally for their father’s swearing-in. John Fetterman, according to one line of grotesque and specious Twitter speculation, struggled with depression because his wife wouldn’t stop seeking the spotlight. But then it was also Gisele’s fault when to avoid the spotlight brought on by his hospitalization, she decided to take their children to Niagara Falls. ‘Gisele Left-Her-Man,’…” the author gratingly whined.

Conservatives on Twitter had an entirely different take, with most believing that Gisele Fetterman deserved to be dragged on social media for pushing her obviously ill husband to climb the political ladder and then going on vacation right after he admitted himself to Walter Reed Army Medical Center for mental care:
