John Fetterman’s Wife Blocked Me for Telling the Truth
I’ve long criticized John Fetterman for lying about his health to get elected to the U.S. Senate. In addition to the cognitive impairments he suffered from his May 2022 stroke, he also apparently has long struggled with clinical depression—something that was conveniently never discussed during his Senate campaign that I’m sure the voters of Pennsylvania would have liked to know.
Last month, Fetterman checked himself into Walter Reed for treatment for severe depression after being overwhelmed by his new life in the U.S. Senate. Despite all the accommodations made for him, he struggled to adjust, so he’s been voluntarily committed for weeks, and it’s anyone’s guess when he’ll return.

His wife, Gisele Fetterman, most certainly knew he couldn’t serve as a U.S. Senator, but instead of putting his health first, she attacked his critics. We have also learned that his campaigning last year likely caused permanent brain damage.
This week, she chimed in on an issue that she probably shouldn’t have when she took to Twitter to defend the Buttigiegs after former Vice President Mike Pence made a joke about Pete Buttigieg going on maternity leave in the middle of the supply chain crisis.
“I guess the former VP finds postpartum depression hilarious?” she tweeted. “And raising your baby … emasculating? Gross but also dangerous.”
Naturally, I had to point out that Gisele was in no position to question whether someone takes depression seriously when (as I would point out) after her husband checked himself into Walter Reed to receive treatment for severe depression, she went on a road trip to Canada.
The truth must really hurt because she blocked me within a couple of hours.
Everything I stated was factual. In fact, she documented her journey on Twitter.
“I am not really sure how to navigate this journey but am figuring it out slowly,” she tweeted. “1 week ago today when the news dropped, the kids were off from school and media trucks circled our home. I did the first thing I could think of … pack them in the car and drive.”
“We drove straight into … Canada,” she continued.
She also posted photos and videos of herself and her kids having fun in Niagara Falls… roughly 400 miles and seven hours away from where her husband was being treated for severe depression.
So, now Gisele Fetterman has blocked me. I’ll carry on, but hopefully, my tweet will convince her to take her husband’s health more seriously in the future.
