Gisele Fetterman Says ‘Swimming In America Is Very Racist’

Gisele Fetterman, wife of Pennsylvania Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman, has bizarrely claimed that “swimming in America is very racist.”

Gisele made the claim while speaking about the lieutenant governor’s mansion in Pennsylvania and how the couple wanted to open up the pool to the public in an effort to “right some of the wrongs” of “racist” swimming.

“While we did not want the mansion, that mansion came with a pool I wanted. And the dream was to make this a public pool and turn it into the people’s pool and ensure that young people across Pennsylvania could learn how to swim and water safety and kind of work to right some of the wrongs,” Gisele said, according to Fox News.

“Historically, swimming in America is very racist, and usually when you look at drowning statistics, it usually affects children of color because of lack of access,” she claimed.

Gisele’s claim of swimming being racist came a few weeks after she made a similarly odd accusation, calling NBC News reporter Dasha Burns an “ableist” for reporting on her husband’s “unconventional” needs he required to complete an interview due to “lingering auditory processing issues” resulting from his stroke in May.

According to Burns, John Fetterman even struggled with simple “small talk” before the interview started.

“He still has lingering auditory processing issues as a result of the stroke, which means he has a hard time understanding what he’s hearing. Now once he reads the question, he’s able to understand,” Burns explained of Fetterman. She added that he still “had a hard time understanding our conversations.”

Gisele Fetterman quickly responded to Burns’ comments by saying Burns should face “consequences” for revealing the help John Fetterman required to participate in the interview.

A few days later, Gisele again demanded an apology from Burns and from NBC News for revealing the “accommodations” and for pointing out that her husband still has not released medical records or provided a meaningful update on his recovery.

“If this happened in a school, if this was a child that was ableist towards another child or a teacher, there would’ve been issues stated. There would have been new training done,” Gisele Fetterman said in comments made to The Independent. “What is being done at the media after a reporter came out so openly ableist towards a person? I think shocked and appalled, but sadly not surprised. I know there’s still so much to do, but it would be great to see some accountability, to actually see real change.”
