RED STATE – Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman finally “returned” to the campaign trail after ignoring his doctor for years and suffering a massive stroke.
That “return” looked a lot like box-checking for the senate candidate, though.
In what was obviously a tightly controlled environment, Fetterman only appeared for 11 minutes, wearing a hoodie in summer weather and being backed up by his wife.
Now, the first footage of the event has been revealed, and it shows a man who is not alright.

“Mehmet Oz formally challenged John Fetterman to five Pennsylvania Senate debates Friday, an opening salvo designed to help the Republican catch up with the Democratic front-runner and indirectly highlight his health as he recovers from a stroke.” – NBC NEWS, Aug 12, 2022
Multiple times throughout his brief remarks, Fetterman, who is facing Republican Mehmet Oz, seemed to completely blank out before returning to his incredibly generic remarks.
That’s almost certainly a remnant of the stroke and something that the Democrat has been unwilling to be transparent about.
To this point, he’s hidden behind his social media personality, carefully crafted by staffers to make him appear quick-witted and funny.
What was shown on that stage was anything but that, though.That’s a problem for Fetterman because his entire campaign has been predicated on an image that isn’t real.
With the facade finally off, voters will finally see him for what he really is, which is an awkward, unhealthy man with radical positions.
