Fetterman has been in Walter Reed National Hospital since February 16 receiving treatment for what his chief of staff described as a “severe” case of “clinical depression.”
What it means: The senator, who suffered a near-fatal stroke on the campaign trail in May 2022, will resume his job—supporting President Joe Biden’s radical left-wing agenda—on a date that lives in infamy.
April 17 will mark the 62nd anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion, the failure of which would condemn generations of innocent Cubans to a life of suffering under communist dictator and Obama administration ally Fidel Castro.
Even more disturbingly, April 17 is the 48th anniversary of the fall of Phnom Penh to the Khmer Rouge. The date marks the end of the Cambodian civil war and the rise of a brutal communist regime under Pol Pot, who presided over the deaths of nearly two million people—roughly a quarter of the country’s population.
Context: Fetterman and his allies have destroyed their credibility when it comes to keeping the American people informed about the state of the senator’s health. Following his stroke in May 2022, Fetterman’s campaign released a note from his doctor—also a campaign donor—insisting he “has no work restrictions and can work full duty in public office.”
That turned out to be an exaggeration, at best. The New York Times reported in February that Fetterman’s efforts to “work full duty in public office” without restrictions were stymied by “serious mental health challenges” and “unfamiliar duties that are taxing for someone still in recovery.” By returning to the campaign trail too quickly—in order to boost the Democratic Party’s electoral prospects—Fetterman “may have set himself back permanently.”
Trend alert: Fetterman’s decision to return to work on a day associated with unfathomable left-wing atrocities reminds us of the time Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) unveiled her “free college” plan in 2019. The date? April 22, which happens to be the birthday of Vladimir I. Lenin, architect of Soviet communism and one of history’s greatest monsters.
