John Fetterman ‘Hearing Muffled Voices’ Due to ‘Neurological Condition’

Democrat Senator John Fetterman (D-PA) is reportedly “hearing muffled voices” due to a “neurological condition” following a stroke last year.

According to a report in The New York Times, Fetterman says he sometimes hears voices that sound like the muffled teacher from the “Peanuts” animated specials.

Annie Karni, writing for the Times, Fetterman is struggling with auditory processing issues.

As Slay News reported earlier this week, Fetterman was hospitalized while attending a Democrat senators’ retreat.

Karni says Fetterman’s “most evident disability is a neurological condition that impairs his hearing.”

“Mr. Fetterman suffers from auditory processing issues, forcing him to rely primarily on a tablet to transcribe what is being said to him,” Karni reported.

“The hearing issues are inconsistent; they often get worse when he is in a stressful or unfamiliar situation.

“When it’s bad, Mr. Fetterman has described it as trying to make out the muffled voice of the teacher in the ‘Peanuts’ cartoon, whose words could never be deciphered.”

Fetterman was hospitalized on Wednesday after he complained of feeling lightheaded.

Joe Calvello, Fetterman’s communications director, tweeted that the senator went in for an MRI and showed no signs of another stroke.

Fetterman was present for President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address on Tuesday.

The now-senator suffered a stroke last May just days before Pennsylvania’s Democrat Senate primary and received a pacemaker and defibrillator.

He ran away with the primary and later won a narrow victory over GOP Senate nominee Mehmet Oz in November.

Fetterman’s communication issues were evident during the race’s only debate.

During the debate, he struggled to process words and information with the help of closed captioning technology.

Early voting in Pennsylvania was well underway at the time of the debate.
