TUCKER CARLSON: We’re not supposed to ask questions about John Fetterman’s hospitalization


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Last fall, a Democrat named Tony DeLuca was reelected to the Pennsylvania state house when he was dead. Not just dead inside like most politicians, but really dead, not breathing. And not only did DeLuca win after being dead for a full month, but he also won by a landslide. Tony DeLuca received over 85% of the vote.

Now, anyway, that’s embarrassing. Pennsylvania Democrats elected a dead man. They knew they were doing it. They did anyway. This seems to defeat the idea of ​​representative democracy, which is that you vote for people so they can represent you. But Pennsylvania party leaders were not ashamed. They were proud.

“While we are incredibly saddened by the loss of Representative Tony DeLuca,” they said in a statement. “We are proud that voters continue to demonstrate their confidence in him and his commitment to democratic values ​​by electing him posthumously.” In other words, choosing a man who cannot possibly represent you is not an affront to democracy, it is the very essence of democracy.

Now, it’s not a typo, they put that in a press release. And actually it kind of makes sense if you remember it was also in the state of Pennsylvania, Democratic Party leaders backed a Senate candidate named John Fetterman long after he suffered a massive stroke and could no longer speak or communicate clearly. Here he is during one of his rare public appearances last year.


DEBAT MODERATOR #1, OCT. 25, 2022: You’re running for a seat that could determine the balance of power in Washington. What qualifies you to be a US Senator? You have 60 seconds.

JOHN FETTERMAN: Hi. Good night everyone… If you work full time you should be able to live in dignity, that’s true. And I believe they haven’t done any business since we can’t have businesses subsidized by individuals who just can’t afford not to pay for their own living expenses.

DEBAT MODERATOR #2, OCT. 25, 2022: You say tonight that you support fracking, that you’ve always supported fracking, but there’s that 2018 interview where you said, “I’m not in favor of fracking at all.” So how do you square the two?

JOHN FETTERMAN: Oh, I’m in favor of fracking, and… I’m not, I’m not, I’m in favor of fracking and I’m standing and I’m in favor of fracking.

As you well remember, that debate was considered shocking by almost everyone who saw it, but not by the Democrats in Pennsylvania. They didn’t seem even a little embarrassed to be caught directing a candidate who couldn’t speak.

Fetterman’s own wife, a former illegal alien named Giselle, candidly told reporters how she deals with her brain-damaged husband: “You just like to ignore him when he talks.” Now, Democratic voters love this because they always love when women attack and belittle their own husbands. It makes them feel like they are not alone. It is quite normal to hate your husband. And of course they took Giselle’s advice and elected John Fetterman to the Senate. In a party that doesn’t allow debate, you don’t need a senator who can use words or, for that matter, a president who can think.

Now we naively assumed that Joe Biden would be in trouble during the 2020 primary if he misidentified the state he was in, or mistook his sister for his wife, or made about 100 other weird and incoherent statements suggesting that regular amphetamine injections are the only thing that gets him through his rallies. Biden’s senility seemed so obvious, and it was.

But what we missed was how much the Democratic Party had changed. Joe Biden’s campaign was never about Joe Biden, he could have been anyone: sharp, old or young, alive or dead. The candidate himself did not matter. What mattered was the power of the office. Democrats just wanted the seat. The details of who occupied it didn’t matter to them.

And as if to prove it. Dianne Feinstein has been a senator from California for over 30 years. She’s now 89, the oldest member of Congress, and she’s sadly out of it. Last month, she learned that her staff had announced her departure from the Senate. She had no idea. Look at this.

DIANNE FEINSTEIN FEB. 2023: I didn’t make that decision… I didn’t release anything… It will be my pleasure… Did you release the statement? I didn’t know they released it. So it is what it is.

“We have issued your statement,” Feinstein staff inform her. We’ve decided that you quit your job and no, we haven’t told you because we don’t care what you think. You are just the senator, shut up and vote. And Dianne Feinstein kind of nods and accepts.

Please note that this person serves on the Intelligence Committee in the United States Senate. And it’s sad, really. You would think that even a corrupt machine state like California would earn more than this. Voters voted for her, assuming she would be aware of their surroundings and perhaps keep their best interests in mind. But no, nobody in the party cares, because representative democracy means nothing to democratic leaders, and they don’t mind if you know that’s how they feel about it.

So that’s basically how Washington works. But even by those low standards, it was kind of invigorating to watch John Fetterman’s short political career unfold. Fetterman came to Washington in January and within a month suffered a nervous breakdown so severe that he ended up in the psych ward where he is staying tonight. And, of course, we’re not mocking John Fetterman. We sincerely sympathize with him. But the mercenaries in his job, including his wife Giselle, should be ashamed of what they did.

Apparently, Fetterman cracked under the pressure of a Senate campaign that required him to pretend that the brain damage he suffered from a stroke wasn’t really a big deal. “No problem. I’m fine.” But he was not okay. He was so close to the brink that within weeks of arriving in Washington, he ended up as an inpatient in a mental hospital. He has not appeared in public since then. And we have to think that’s not a bad thing. We shouldn’t even think about it and just show how completely normal it is for newly elected US senators to have a nervous breakdown and disappear from public view.

That’s not so bad, that Fetterman somehow just co-sponsored legislation in the US Senate, “US Senators Bob Casey and John Fetterman of Pennsylvania,” reads an honest news report, “joined a bipartisan group of senators, who passed new legislation aimed at preventing future freight train derailments, such as the one last month in East Palestine, Ohio.”

So here you have a man who gets psychiatric care 24 hours a day and decides how to prevent train derailments. There are so many questions here. But the most obvious one is a logistical question: How does John Fetterman do this when he’s in the psych ward? And we don’t know because no one will say.

Fetterman’s chief of staff, a man named Adam Jentleson, blocks anyone who dares ask that question on social media. For example, on Twitter, Stephen Miller of the last White House asked Jentleson, “Adam, who is signing and introducing legislation from Senator Fetterman’s office when he himself is currently in the hospital and currently under medical observation?” Oh, no answer. No answer. Jentleson just blocked Stephen Miller from commenting.

So the problem with this is not John Fetterman himself. Again, it’s impossible not to feel sad for John Fetterman or anyone else who suffers from mental illness. Many of us are eccentric, some of us are very eccentric. And a tolerant and compassionate society should do its best to help people who suffer from problems like depression or schizophrenia or whatever. The problem is that a society that elevates people who are mentally ill is doomed.


Wouldn’t a functional society elevate people to leadership positions who are the wisest, the smartest, the sanest, who have the greatest degree of foresight and emotional self-control? Yes it would. They would not deliberately put people in positions of authority who were incompetent. They wouldn’t allow John Fetterman to write railroad safety legislation from his bed in the psychiatric ward. That is, excuse the description, insane.

Biden, of course, will celebrate as a new glass ceiling is broken, as if we are all getting stronger from being ruled by people who can’t think straight. But this is a dead end, this road. This way of thinking is destructive to everyone. It’s powerless, it’s grotesque, and if we continue, we could end up with people dressed in admiral costumes posing as women. That could happen.

Dr. RACHEL LEVINE, OCT. 2021: I am honored to serve as the first female four-star officer of the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.


Now, that person is clearly mentally ill, but so is the rest of us if we accept it as normal.
