Senator John Fetterman responded to rumors of him having a body double in a somewhat embarrassingly bizarre video posted on Twitter.
Earlier this month, rumors began swirling that Fetterman had a body double after George Papadopoulos posted this photo of the Senator from last year.

Fetterman’s wife Giselle posted a photo of the ‘new and improved’ Fetterman, which appeared to look nothing like the 2022 version that Papadopoulos posted.
Fetterman’s change in appearance didn’t go unnoticed by Twitter, as many theorized it was a body double, while some even suggested it was a clone.
But the social media firestorm obviously struck a nerve with Fetterman’s team.
After being absent from the senate for close to two months, the Sentaor posted a video of himself denying that he has a body double, trying to throw light onto the rumors.
Fetterman says in the video, “During my time during the hospital at the hospital the fringy fringies really came up with a conspiracy that I have a body double.”
“That’s not true,” the camera then points to Fetterman pretending to be his own body double in what appeared to be a goofy joke.

Fetterman’s health has been the subject of headlines after he suffered a stroke during his campaign in the 2022 midterms.
Some warned that Fetterman was no longer fit for his position following the stroke.
Earlier this year, The Daily Fetched reported that Fetterman said he was hearing the voice of the teacher from the “Peanuts” cartoon due to his severe hearing disability caused by his stroke.
The Senator also unwittingly created a viral sensation when he tried to say ‘water’ during an event at a Philadelphia water treatment plant with President Joe Biden.
