Fox News personality Tucker Carlson addressed the mystery surrounding Senator John Fetterman, who co-sponsored the legislation despite his recent hospitalization for clinical depression.
In fact, Fetterman has somehow managed to co-sponsor legislation three times in the past week, despite checking himself into Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for treatment 19 days ago.
The Pennsylvania Democrat’s name appears on legislation to amend the National Labor Relations Act, a bill to increase rail safety in light of the recent East Palestine train derailment, and an effort to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938.
He remains an inpatient at Walter Reed while he is completely unable to serve in the Senate like his colleagues.
New York University Medical Professor Dr. Mark Siegel explained that while details of his hospital stay remain unclear or nonexistent, the fact that he was reported to be working while being treated for such a condition is “highly unusual.”
If John Fetterman can somehow actively vote and co-sponsor legislation in the Senate while he’s under mental health care, shouldn’t we all be able to give him a live update on his condition?
Mathematics is not mathematics in this respect.

We’re past the ‘extraordinary’ stage of what the Democrats are doing to John Fetterman. And yet the media remains completely intrigued.
If you will, Matt Gaetz or Lauren Bobert are hospitalized for some kind of mental or emotional problem, after suffering a stroke, essentially disappearing for weeks, but somehow managing to co-sponsor legislation like John Fetterman.
You’d think the media would ask more than a few questions.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson is one of the few people with the intellectual curiosity to wonder what the hell is going on.
“Fetterman arrived in Washington in January and within a month suffered a mental breakdown, wounding up in a mental ward where he remains tonight,” Carlson recalled.
“So he hasn’t appeared in public. And we’ve got to think it’s not a big deal,” he said. “We don’t have to think about it and don’t even want to show how common it is for newly elected US senators to have a mental breakdown and disappear from public view.”
Carlson continued to address rail safety legislation co-sponsored by Fetterman from his hospital bed.
“So here you have a person receiving round-the-clock psychiatric care deciding how to prevent a train derailment,” he lamented.
“There are so many questions. But the most obvious one is the logistical question: How is John Fetterman doing this if he’s in a psych ward?” Carlson continued. “And we don’t know because nobody tells.”

Democrats weekend at Bernie’s party
Senator Fetterman’s career in Congress has been short, but already a health disaster by any measuring stick. We honestly feel bad for the man.
Before being elected, Fetterman suffered a stroke that left him unable to understand or express words and meanings.

A month into his term, he was hospitalized overnight after suffering a ‘headache’ during a Democratic retreat.
Shortly after, reports emerged that Fetterman was struggling to adjust to life in the Senate as he dealt with hearing problems, as a stroke caused him to sound like the teacher in the “Peanuts” cartoons.
The New York Times printed a lengthy report detailing how Senate colleagues had to accommodate the “special needs” of the Pennsylvania Congress.
And now, as Carlson explained, Fetterman “suffered a mental breakdown so severe that he wound up in a mental ward that remains tonight.”
It’s clear Democrats — particularly those embarrassments in Pennsylvania — are having a weekend at Bernie’s party.
He helped propel a weak and barely coherent man into the White House in 2020. He sent a weak and hardly coherent man to serve in the Senate in 2022.
In fact, he re-elected a dead man named Tony DeLuca to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives the same year he thought Fetterman would be a better choice.
“The candidate himself was irrelevant,” Carlson said, referring to Biden’s presidential run but could easily apply to all three men mentioned above.
“The important thing is the power of the office. Democrats just wanted a seat. The details of who occupied it are not important to them,” he added.
Even if the candidates are incompetent, they don’t mind. They don’t care about their health or if the stress of these roles in public life is killing them. They don’t even care if they are already dead.
