‘I am so happy to be home’: Fetterman speaks out after being released from hospital

Senator John Fetterman (D-Pa.) has been released from the hospital where he was undergoing treatment for clinical depression since he checked in in mid-February, mere weeks after assuming office, a stay that fueled ongoing questions about his fitness for the job.

On Friday, the Pennsylvania lawmaker departed Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and returned to his home in Braddock, a town where he once pulled a shotgun on a black jogger while he was serving as mayor, a disturbing incident that did little to dissuade race-obsessed Democrat voters from sending him to the U.S. Senate in a testament to party loyalty.

“I am so happy to be home. I’m excited to be the father and husband I want to be, and the senator Pennsylvania deserves. Pennsylvanians have always had my back, and I will always have theirs,” the senator said.

“I am extremely grateful to the incredible team at Walter Reed. The care they provided changed my life. I will have more to say about this soon, but for now I want everyone to know that depression is treatable, and treatment works,” Fetterman added in another tweet.

The senator will continue his recovery in Braddock where he will spend the next two weeks with his family, friends, and constituents before returning to work on April 17.

As was the case during his Senate run when serious and legitimate questions were raised about whether he would be capable of performing the rigorous duties of a United States senator after suffering a debilitating stroke last May just before the primaries, the media has his back, and his latest triumph over adversity is being showcased in an interview with CBS News’ Jane Pauley which is set to air this weekend.

The media will do the heavy lifting when it comes to the reboot of the hulking, tattooed everyman who, thanks to the miracle of propaganda, will have his weakness transformed into his strength, a potent talisman to deflect questions about his fitness for the job with critics to be smeared as ableists.

Fetterman’s election was critical for a Democratic Party determined to retain control over the Senate by any means necessary, even one as unethical as propping up the impaired candidate who struggled mightily on the campaign trail and was sliced and diced by his GOP opponent, celebrity surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz in the one debate that he agreed to, a complete dumpster fire that – were it not for early voting – would likely have ended his political career.

The recovering patient also thanked his medical team at Walter Reed.

“This isn’t about politics — right now there are people who are suffering with depression in red counties and blue counties. If you need help, please get help,” he added.
