Pennsylvania Democrat Senator John Fetterman’s health continues to be the subject of mystery.

What little information Fetterman’s office provides only raises more questions.

And now this damning photo of John Fetterman left everyone talking.

In mid-February Fetterman checked into the hospital to receive treatment for clinical depression.

The New York Times reported Fetterman had trouble dealing with the fact that by rushing back to the campaign trail after suffering a near fatal stroke last May.

Fetterman may live the rest of his life as a diminished and impaired version of himself.

All of these facts were kept hidden from the voters – and possibly Fetterman himself – during the election season.

After Fetterman entered the hospital, his team didn’t provide updates on his health nor did they make his doctors available to take questions.

Nearly one month after Fetterman checked himself in for treatment, his team put out a clearly phony photo of a shockingly gaunt Fetterman pretending to work.

CNN’s Manu Raju – ever-eager to help out Democrats – posted a series of messages on Twitter with unnamed sources and a mysterious doctor all promising Fetterman would be back in good form shortly.

“John Fetterman is making progress in his recovery from clinical depression and could leave Walter Reed within next two weeks, a person close to the senator told me. The senator’s physician recently informed him that he will be “as good or better than his best days post-stroke,” Raju posted.

“Fetterman’s stay has lasted this long because the doctors have been trying to get his ‘medication balance exactly right,’ per source. For instance, doctors learned his blood pressure med was too high, which may have contributed to dizziness when he went to GW hospital last month,” Raju continued.

Raju never pressed these “sources” as to why anyone should believe them this time when the Fetterman team outright lied to the public about the status of Fetterman’s health since he suffered his stroke.

Nor did Raju specify if the doctor who provided the same upbeat prognosis was the same Dr. Clifford Chen – who is also one of Fetterman’s campaign donors – who provided a note during the election falsely claiming Fetterman could work a normal schedule come January should he win the race.

Until John Fetterman and his office come clean and provide actual doctors to answer real questions, the doubts about Fetterman’s ability to serve will persist.
