John Fetterman, Pennsylvania’s current Lt. Governor who is now the Democrat nominee for US Senate, returned to the campaign trail this weekend after a stroke-induced hiatus.
Democrat Fetterman is running against Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz in the 2022 US Senate race in Pennsylvania.
And he can barely speak.
Fetterman showed up to his campaign event in Erie, Pennsylvania in his signature hoodie and jeans looking like an over aged Antifa goon.
Our packed rally in Erie had me feeling so grateful
I’m ready to win this race the only way I know how:

Fetterman struggled to recall words as he spoke to rally goers this weekend.

As TGP’s Kristinn Taylor previously reported, Fetterman suffered a stroke in May.
53-year-old Fetterman also released a short video to accompany the statement that shows him in a hospital room with his wife, Gisele.
Gisele does most of the talking while John Fetterman only speaks briefly and moves just his left arm while seated in a chair wearing a dark hoodie.
On Friday, I wasn’t feeling well, so I went to the hospital to get checked out.
I didn’t want to go – I didn’t think I had to – but @giselefetterman insisted, and as usual, she was right.
The good news is I’m feeling much better + I’m well on my way to a full recovery. pic.twitter.com/WQ5X6QgQen

Fetterman also admitted he blew off his doctor’s advice five years ago about his heart condition and “almost died” from a stroke in May.
Not only is John Fetterman not well after his stroke, he got an allowance from mommy and daddy until he was 50 years old.
Fetterman has been supported by his parents up until recently.
The Philidelphia Inquirer recently covered this.
Public records show — and Fetterman has openly acknowledged — that for a long stretch lasting well into his 40s, his main source of income came from his parents, who gave him and his family $54,000 in 2015 alone. That was part of the financial support his parents regularly provided when Fetterman’s only paying work was $150 a month as mayor of Braddock, a job he held from his mid-30s until he turned 49. Partway through his tenure, in 2013, he moved to an industrial-style loft he purchased from his sister for $1 after she paid $70,000 for it six years earlier.
According to Democrats, Fetterman’s most egregious action was back in 2013 when he chased a black man down the street who he thought was involved in shootings in his neighborhood. Fetterman then pulled out a shotgun on the black man who it turned out wasn’t involved in the shooting.
This is the best the Democrats have.
He’s actually the perfect Democrat.
