Pennsylvania Democrat Senator John Fetterman, who is a stroke survivor, has been rushed to a Washington, DC hospital.
The Daily Mail reports:
Senator John Fetterman is rushed to hospital after ‘feeling lightheaded’ as doctors check if he’s suffered another stroke
Senator John Fetterman has been rushed to hospital this evening.
The Pennsylvania Democrat, who has suffered from a stoke on May 13 last year, is currently undergoing tests at the George Washington University Hospital in Washington DC.
A spokesperson for the politician said on Wednesday night: ‘Towards the end of the Senate Democratic retreat today, Senator John Fetterman began feeling lightheaded.
‘He left and called his staff, who picked him up and drove him to The George Washington University Hospital.
‘Initial tests did not show evidence of a new stoke, but doctors are running more tests and John is remaining overnight for observation. He is in good spirits and talking with his staff and family.’
Fetterman suffered his stroke in May, days before Pennsylvania’s Democratic primary, but he still won the race handily.
While we wish no harm to Senator Fetterman, it is important to note that his health issues were downplayed or outright ignored by the national media throughout the 2022 midterm campaign.
When then-candidate John Fetterman suffered a stroke on the campaign trail, he put out a statement saying “I hadn’t been feeling well, but was so focused on the campaign that I ignored the signs and just kept going … On Friday it finally caught up with me. I had a stroke that was caused by a clot from my heart being in an A-fib rhythm for too long.
Later, it was revealed that statement was a lie, the campaign knew it was a stroke for two weeks before reporting it to the public.
He was actually still in the hospital on the very day he won the Democrat nomination for Senate.
Fetterman was kept out of the limelight for an astonishing 5 weeks, making no public appearances – until conservative alt-media started questioning his health.
Then the national media attacked those critics, maintaining that any criticism or calls for Fetterman to step aside for a healthy candidate were somehow “attacks” on people with “disabilities”:
Our prayers are with Sen. Fetterman this hour, and hope he has a speedy recovery.
