Fetterman Health Cover-Up: Chief of Staff Blocks Reporter Who Questioned Psyche Ward Hold

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

In order to prevent conservative writer Stephen L Miller, aka redsteeze, from asking Fetterman how it is that he is sponsoring legislation while he is hospitalized under the care of a doctor, Jentleson, chief of staff for Senator John Fetterman (D-PA), blocked Miller for making that request. It has been over two weeks now since Fetterman has been held incommunicado at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland as he is being treated for clinical depression.

Jentleson proclaims on his Twitter profile to be “Reid mafia for life”, referencing his role as deputy chief of staff to late Senator Reid (D-NV). In his bio for a book talk last year about the Senate written between working for Reid and Fetterman, Jentleson boasted he was a “go-to source for reporters.”

Adam Jentleson is a veteran of presidential campaigns and served as Deputy Chief of Staff to Senator Harry Reid until Reid retired in 2017. In his capacity with Reid, he was a senior advisor on political, legislative and communications strategy through the fights of the Obama years. He is a go-to source for reporters, activists and Congressional staff, along with members of Congress, for creative approaches to legislative strategy. He has been cited as an authority by every major national American news outlet and several international ones. In addition to The New York Times, Jentleson’s writing has appeared in The Washington Post, Politico, and GQ. Jentleson is the author of Kill Switch: The Rise of the Modern Senate and the Crippling of American Democracy. Jentleson’s work has been cited as influencing the debate over reforming the filibuster in the Senate and motivating Democrats to be aggressive.

In light of Fetterman’s long absence for what is typically a very brief hospital stay of a few days to a week as well as the fact that there have not been any proof of his life or health in the form of photos or videos, speculation has been rife that his condition is worse than his staff is letting on.

A bipartisan bill targeting railway safety was co-sponsored by Fetterman and the three other senators whose states, Ohio and Pennsylvania, were affected by the toxic train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio a month ago, according to a report released by the Senate on Wednesday. Senators Bob Casey (D-PA), Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and J.D. Vance (R-OH) together with Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) comprise the group.

Stephen L. Miller asked Adam Jentleson about Fetterman co-sponsoring the bill at 1:46 a.m. EST Thursday. Within two minutes Jentleson blocked him (who blocks people at almost two in the morning for politely asking about their boss?):

“Adam, who is co-signing and introducing Senate legislation from Senator Fetterman’s office while he himself is currently hospitalized and under current medical observation?”

In the following two minutes, Miller posted that Jentleson had blocked him:

As of Tuesday evening, Miller had quoted Jentleson’s comment on Twitter about how ‘ugly’ conservatives were being to his boss on Twitter about Jentleson’s comment.

“There has been an uptick in ugliness from the right but as a window into how disconnected that junk is, and to give a sense of what is motivating those who bother to pick up the phone, this remains true: The top topic of calls to our office has been will wishes, every single day.”

As a result of Jentleson’s block of Miller, who has over 420,000 followers on Twitter, drew attention and traffic to his statement as well as Jentleson’s responses to this writer, which had been ignored previously.

“Your office has mishandled Sen. Fetterman’s absence. Went almost two weeks without an update. No photo or video released, unlike when he had his stroke. Gisele grabbing the kids and passports and heading to Canada to zipline didn’t help. Shapiro, Biden haven’t talked to him. ???…Don’t get mad if people start to question why Sen. Fetterman has been incommunicado for two weeks when he was hospitalized for depression because he wasn’t feeding and hydrating himself properly. People will speculate that his condition is worse than what is being said.”

Jentleson’s mishandling of Fetterman’s absence continues. Miller had a question for CNN Congressional reporter Manu Raju, “you want to suddenly get curious about this or not? Are you a journalist or not?”

During his stay at the hospital, Miller was on a tear because Fetterman sponsored legislation and had his name on a letter to Norfolk Southern.

“Is there a single journalist within the border of the continental United States going to ask the question of how John Fetterman co-authored a letter in the united states Senate while under direct medical observation at Walter Reed for self admitted fear of harm and depression?”
