Fetterman Says He is 'Hearing Voices' Like the Teacher from 'Peanuts' Cartoon

Newly elected Sen. John Fetterman said he is now hearing the voice of the teacher from the “Peanuts” cartoon because of his severe hearing disability caused by his stroke, according to a report from the New York Times.

Fetterman has been suffering cognitive issues, including a problem with auditory processing after he suffered a stroke in May 2022 while campaigning for Pennsylvania’s open Senate seat.

The Senator, who was admitted to hospital earlier this week after experiencing lightheadedness, has struggled to adjust to life in the senate. He now needs technological tools to help him engage in conversations with staff and colleagues.

Fetterman also has to carry a closed captioning device that types out what is being said to him, so he can type out what is being said to him.

According to Feterman’s Democratic colleagues, the closed captioning system s helping him habe seamless conversations.

“It’s just a slight delay,” said Marie Gluesenkamp Pérez, D-Wash, the Times reported.

“I didn’t notice he was using it at first. Then I was like, ‘Why are they holding it?’ It took me a minute to figure out what was going on,” she added.

According to Fetterman’s chief of staff, Adam Jentleson, the Senator refuses to speak with reporters because he cannot answer their questions in echoing Senate hallways.

“Before the stroke, he was the kind of person who loved the give-and-take with reporters,” Jentleson told the Times. “The challenge is to be able to get back to that place, given the current limitations.”

Despite his auditory processing issues and refusal to release more of his medical records, Fetterman defeated GOP opponent Dr. Mehmet Oz in the 2022 midterm elections.

“We’re going to have to learn our own styles with it,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., told the New York Times of Fetterman’s condition after using the tablet to converse with him.

“What I was saying was accurate even when I talked fast. I wanted to make sure it was accurate. It was kind of to imagine what it would be like to be him.”

“He answers like you would answer anyone,” Klobuchar said. “It’s us that have to get used to it; he’s used to it.”

Sen. Bob Casey, D-Penn., who serves as Pennsylvania’s second Senator alongside Fetterman, says his condition is not a factor because people “understand disability.”

“There are a lot of people out there who understand disability and understand struggle, and he won big,” he told the outlet.

Fetterman unwittingly created a viral sensation when he tried to say ‘water’ during an event at a Philadelphia water treatment plant with President Joe Biden on Friday.

Earlier this week, Fetterman demonstrated his unfitness for his new role by searching for the word “water” but instead said “work.”

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
