Fetterman 2.0? Did We Just See The New Fetterman Clone?

Time to do a deep dive!

As you know, we really pride ourselves on ACCURATE reporting.

And that means even when a story seems really good, we still investigate and make sure we are reporting the truth!

Which brings me to “Fetterman 2.0”.

The alleged Fetterman Clone that popped up today….

Let’s dig in and see what we can find.

So here is a post that was going viral today.

Fetterman on the left, and who is that on the right?

Fetterman 2.0?

Fake Fetterman?

EVERYONE was posting about it:

Those posts came from this larger zoomed out picture:

Looks bad right?

I mean, come on…that looks NOTHING like Fetterman!

I think we can all agree on that.

The only problem is the picture in question is from 2022.

That’s 2022,not 2023.

Credit to Elon Musk and Twitter Community Notes for pointing out the truth:

So, is Community Notes right?

As far as I can tell, yes.

I have found three articles all with dates from May 2022 using that exact photo:

Here’s one screenshot here:

And video from 2022 from the same scene:

So….what to make of this?

Well, it appears as though the “Fake Fetterman” dates back to at least May 2022.

But I’m still calling it Fake Fetterman, because that does NOT look like him.

Right?

NATIONAL POLL: Do You Still Have Trump's Back 100%?

That’s almost 100% certainly NOT him.

So, the question remains: how long have they been running the Fetterman Clone?

And is this who will eventually emerge from the hospital?

The picture has been debunked as “not new” but it doesn’t mean Fake Fetterman is debunked.

Let’s see what happens next!
