On Friday, a photograph of Pennsylvania Democratic Senator John Fetterman began to circulate after he was finally seen in public for the first time since being hospitalized to Walter Reed Medical Center five weeks earlier, leaving many to wonder what the heck was going on.
Mid-February found Fetterman hospitalized to Walter Reed for treatment of depression. That was the second time that month he was hospitalized, since he had previously been treated for feeling dizzy.
The second visit to the institution was somewhat more severe, as he was shortly diagnosed with “clinical depression.”
Following weeks in the hospital without much news provided on his condition and nearly no video or images of his recuperation, Fetterman was discharged Friday as his crew published photos of his release. Nevertheless, one shot in particular that went viral on social media caused many to question the senator’s genuine health.
According to Newsweek, the juxtaposition of two photographs of Senator Fetterman prompted others to question if he had been replaced by a body double.
Juanita Broaddrick was stunned by the two photographs and argued, “I think a DNA sample is in order, here. LOL. That’s not Fetterman on the right.”

Brigitte Gabriel, author, adding, “I’m not one to push conspiracy theories, but John Fetterman’s face looks totally different.”

Attorney Jason Roberge believed that “They literally replaced Fetterman, this is insane.”

Prominent conservative Twitter account Catturd2 also jumped in quipping that Fetterman got a “total head replacement.”

More on this story via The Western Journal:
A myriad of others made similar claims on social media. But there was just one problem with the photo of the hoodie-clad senator that caused so many to ruminate over a body double scenario. That photo is a year old and was taken before some of his most recent medical setbacks, it was not taken on Friday when he was released from the hospital.
A tweet by Fetterman’s wife from May of last year shows the senator and his wife in the same clothing as they are wearing in the disputed photo. CONTINUE READING…
