TNR BIG MAD AT BIG JOHN: John Fetterman Brags That Brain Damage Made Him Abandon Progressives.

During an appearance on Real Time With Bill Maher, Senator John Fetterman credited his near-fatal stroke with making him a conservative darling, describing it as “freeing.”

“There’s a line from the first Batman, Joker, he’s like, ‘I’ve already been dead once already. It’s very liberating,’” Fetterman told Maher on Friday. “That’s not reckless, that’s just freeing. It’s just freeing in a way. And I just think after beating all of that, I just really want to be able to say the things that I have to really believe in and not be afraid of if there’s any kind of blowback.”

Sen. John Fetterman has broken publicly with the grassroots activists who pushed him to power since the outbreak of war in Gaza. Now, some of those progressives have labeled him ‘#GenocideJohn’ over his airtight support for Israel.

‘What I have found out over the last couple years is that the right, and now the left, are hoping that I die,’ the Pennsylvania Democrat told the New York Times. ‘There are ones that are rooting for another blood clot.’

Fetterman said he has soured on progressives and their ‘purity tests.’

‘It’s just a place where I’m not,’ he said. ‘I don’t feel like I’ve left the label; it’s just more that it’s left me.’

In accordance with the prophecy:
