Many Americans are asking questions about why John Fetterman was forced to run for Senate. The man suffered a stroke during the campaign last year. Yet nobody told him to bow out. He had clearly not recovered. And even now, he is in the hospital for treatment of depression (and possibly more).
People are demanding answers from his wife, who seemingly did nothing to look after her husband. As his spouse, you would have expected her to be the first person to urge him to leave the race. She did not and apparently relished the spotlight, appearing by his side at events and his swearing-in. But now that he’s out of commission, she is suddenly fleeing the country.
In a series of tweets Friday morning, Gisele Fetterman explained how her children were home from school and her home surrounded by press when the public heard the news…
Gisele Fetterman said she “did the first thing I could think of,” which was pack her kids into the car and take a road trip.
The family drove into Canada and “talked about lots of hard things and how we will all have to face hard things,” and “the need to be gentle … with all and with ourselves,” the senator’s wife wrote in a tweet.
Uh, huh? Suddenly now, with people asking questions about why she didn’t urge her husband to step down, Gisele is fleeing to Canada. Pretty odd timing, wouldn’t you say? When he was mumbling during the debate, she wasn’t hiding.
When it looked like he could fake it in the Senate, she was right by his side, soaking up the attention.
But when it became painfully clear that the man was unwell, she’s a ghost. When the media started asking questions about why nobody–not her, not the Democrats–didn’t convince him to drop from the race, she suddenly wants her privacy?
And what kind of wife leaves the country… when he husband is in the hospital? I know I wouldn’t appreciate it if my wife did that to me.
Millions are disgusted by how the Democrats exploited an obviously sick man into running for office. And how they did nothing as his condition deteriorated, just so they can keep that seat blue. Even the governor of Pennsylvania refused to remove Fetterman, all to protect the party.
But this is not going to end well, not for Fetterman, his family, or the party. Gisele will have to answer for what she did and didn’t do.
If not to the American public, then to her own conscience.
- John Fetterman’s wife, Gisele, fled to Canada after he was admitted to the hospital.
- People are asking why she didn’t urge him to step down after his severe stroke.
- Gisele appeared to relish the spotlight, but is now seeking privacy as people ask questions.
