“Uh no, I — uh, would just, um, really like to, you know — the 95, 95, 95. You know?” Fetterman said. “Obviously, you know, you’re pretty much preoccupied with uh 95. And uh, I certainly am, too. And we know it’s a major atery [sic], not just for Pennsylvania but for the East Coast,” he continued. “And a lot of Pennsylvanians are worried that the delays in repairs bring to its stand still deal.” The Post, a conservative-leaning outlet, did charitably note that “the senator’s speech seemed to improve the longer he spoke.” I don’t doubt that it did, because the only way for it to deteriorate would be for him to start babbling like a child. It is enough, however, that a mystery woman who was sitting behind Fetterman as he made his remarks went viral, too:

I saw that she was trying not to laugh. 95 95 95— MAGA Michele (@thewalkerseven) June 16, 2023
I take no glee in someone laughing at John Fetterman’s inability to do his job — but then, this is how compassionate Democrats (and Fetterman’s people in particular) are. At some point not too long after Fetterman suffered his stroke, one imagines, they had a reasonable idea of how this would affect his ability to effectively represent the people of Pennsylvania on day one, were he to be elected. That’s why they mostly kept him off the campaign trail and didn’t agree to a debate until after roughly three-quarters of mail-in ballots had already been cast. For the rest of the campaign, they propped him up day after day and barely got him across the finish line. Then, after that, he had to be hospitalized again, this time for depression potentially related to the stroke, which kept him sidelined for the beginning of the new Congress. Now that he’s returned, they continue to prop him up; last month, Fox News reported that Fetterman’s staff had been significantly altering transcripts of his remarks to make them sound more coherent. The issue became a minor scandal after a Washington Post reporter tweeted a quote fed to him by Fetterman’s staff that differed significantly from what he actually said — and in predictable ways.

Yesterday I tweeted this quote, provided to me by the Senator’s office, without checking it against the video. That was my fault. Though it captured his meaning, I deleted the tweet since some of the words in the quote were inaccurate pic.twitter.com/jkDYYr2EU2— Jeff Stein (@JStein_WaPo) May 17, 2023
And they keep on sending him out there despite the fact he’s in no condition to be in the upper chamber. The same could be said for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who was the subject of ire when the nearly-nonagenarian California senator was hospitalized with a serious illness that held up the progress of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Tough town, Washington. For the people of Pennsylvania, however, this is no laughing matter. They’re stuck with this for the better part of six more years. The worst may be yet to come.
