John Fetterman has jokes.
While the American people wonder about the vitality of Sen. Fetterman and whether he’s up to the task of representing the state of Pennsylvania, the Democrat who suffered a major stroke last year is making videos spoofing those concerns.
Having just been released from more than a month of inpatient treatment for depression at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center — at taxpayer expense — which suggests he may have been harmful to himself, Fetterman made a grand return to Capital Hill this week to cast a vote, coming to town in his trademark shorts and a hoodie.

In an encore performance, a jovial Fetterman released a video production denouncing rumors that he had a body double.
“Hey everybody, it’s me, Senator John Fetterman, and I just want you to know that I’m back and I’m feeling great, 100%,” he said in the clip. “And you know, during my time during the hospital, the fringy fringies really came up with a conspiracy that I have a body double. And I just want you to know that is just crazy.”
Bill Withers’s “Just the Two of Us” played in the background after the video cut to a supposed John Fetterman doppelganger (played by the senator) interrupting to ask what event he’s supposed to be doing next.
“Thought it was time to address the rumor: I do not have a body double,” he tweeted, along with the video.

But then, why shouldn’t Fetterman be jolly, he has the Democratic Party running cover for him and the agenda-driven corporate media is firmly in his camp.
One compelling question was posed by a social media user, “What is that on his wall, & ceiling?”
What is that on his wall, & ceiling?

For what it’s worth, Fetterman’s spacious loft was once home to a Chevrolet car dealership.
Here’s a sampling of other responses from those who are not members in good standing of the John Fetterman Fan Club, as seen on Twitter:
If you think this man may have some health issues you are “fringey”…….

I love it when he looks away for affirmation from his handler almost as if to say, yes, indeed, I’m 100% right…that’s what you told me to say right?

How did the senate go from a body of respected successful citizens to…this? We desperately need a reboot

No one that respects the people they represent, especially after they’ve only had 2 weeks of representation, would show up in a sweatshirt and shorts.
There’s no one defending Pennsylvanian interests.
He doesn’t want to be there.
