Fetterman’s discharge from the hospital came after a New York Times article appeared Friday morning that said the stroke he suffered last May and its effects on him were far more serious than the Fetterman campaign.
Excerpts from the TGP report:
“The New York Times on Friday published what reporter Annie Carney described as an empathetic article on new Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) about how he is coping with becoming a U.S. senator just months after suffering a debilitating stroke. But the article includes quotes and reports suggesting that Fetterman shouldn’t have continued his candidacy after what The Times called his “near fatal” stroke last May — including observations that Fetterman knows he’s likely to be permanent without taking the proper time to recover. He harmed himself. , that she has “severe mental health challenges” and that her brain is so scrambled that people sometimes hear her sound like “peanuts” when they talk to her.”
Fetterman’s wife Gisele posted a thank you note to supporters on Thursday.
