Pennsylvania’s junior Sen. John Fetterman made an appearance on CBS-TV’s “Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday night.
He spoke about the lack of a Speaker in the U.S. House of Representatives, his health crisis and the importance of mental health services, as well as the situation in Israel.
“The better I get, the sadder Fox News becomes,” said Fetterman in response to a question from his health from Colbert.
“If you are suffering from depression, please get help. Please get help because it works. Depression tricks you into thinking that you’ve lost even though you might have won. I was a skeptic. I’m like, I’m never going to get better. This is never going to change. And it takes you in a very more dangerous kind of direction. And, I really want to emphasize to anyone that is on that slope. Don’t ever, ever, ever make the decision to ever harm yourself and I beg people, please get help.”
He responded to a question from the host about the “current dysfunction” in the U.S. House, stating “I just want everybody to realize just how truly dysfunctional it really is. And I always tell people, Don’t worry, please, don’t worry. It’s much worse than you think.
“America is not sending their best and brightest you know to Washington DC,” he continued. “Sometimes you literally just can’t believe like these people are making the decisions that are determining the government here.”
He also announced that he stands with Israel in the conflict with Hamas.
“As a Senator, I’m always going to stand on the side of Israel. And I’m going to make sure that whatever is needed military intelligence or humanitarian aid to vote for that and support that as well too.”
