Newly elected Senator from Pennsylvania, John Fetterman check himself into Walter Reed National Military Medical Center last night to “receive treatment for clinical depression,” as his Chief of staff, Adam Jentleson confirmed.

In 2022 Fetterman suffered a serious stroke that he was worried he would never be able to fully recover from at the time. Fetterman, while still showing some issues when communicating, has largely been able to come back from his stroke. However, earlier this month Fetterman had to once again be hospitalized due to feeling “light-headed.” Fetterman’s office has since confirmed that he did not suffer another stroke following his examination.

Chief of staff Adam Jentleson said in a statement:

“While John has experienced depression off and on throughout his life, it only became severe in recent weeks,” the statement said.

“On Monday, John was evaluated by Dr. Brian P. Monahan, the attending physician of the United States Congress… Yesterday, Dr. 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, and will soon be back to himself.”


  1. Note carefully that during the campaign debates against Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz, Fetterman was give every form of help possible including visual presentations of the questions and extra time to consider and respond to compete with Oz. He still barely managed to respond.

  2. Brain Damaged, can’t understand what is being said to him, clinical depression, and other things. Yet folks in PA elected him, even AFTER they were told what was going on with him.
    I had lived in PA in the mid 80’s, bought a house, always had a soft spot for the place. I thought there were sensible folks there. Boy, was I fooled.
    Now, they are dead to me, I’ll never go back, nor will I EVER recommend PA as a nice place to live. And that’s the way it is. At 72, my opinion is locked in.
    But, that’s me.

  3. Dr Oz should be so proud. The levels of corruption it takes to actually create enough ballots to win. Notice I said ballots, not votes submitted by voters.

  4. He’ll never regain full mental capacity. But being a demorat, he never had much to begin with. Pennsylvanians, what were you thinking when you elected this mental defective, clinically depressed, physically incapable leftist?

  5. “After examining John, the doctors at Walter Reed told us that John is getting the care he needs, and will soon be back to himself.”

    But that seems to be the concern. What is “back to himself”?

  6. This is wonderful news,We wish nothing but the best for this man and his brain issues.Get well soon,JB is waiting for your guidance !

  7. Whose talking to him now, Donald Duck. You can blame the lame voters in PA for this. They vote for dead people as well

  8. Who ever said that this nutjob has recovered from his stroke? How the good people of Pennsylvania ever elected this dude to any office is a real mystery. If he had any common sense at all he would resign from that senate seat and check himself into good mental hospital. If he doesn’t then he needs to be recalled or impeached, whichever is the quickest way to get rid of him.
