Fetterman sells ‘body double’ merch poking at conspiracy theories

Sen. John Fetterman (D-Penn.) is poking fun at conspiracy theories by selling “body double” apparel on his campaign store.

The “John Fetterman’s Body Double” T-shirt is for sale on his campaign website for $35 — a reference to a viral conspiracy theory that suggests that the Pennsylvania Democrat has numerous people to fill in for him around the Capitol as his clone.

Fetterman jokingly addressed the rumors to reporters on Tuesday, saying that the theories are “all true” to reporters.

“I’m Senator Guy Incognito,” he added, referring to a “Simpsons” character that is a doppelgänger to the main character of the show. His office posted the audio of the exchange on X, the platform previously known as Twitter, alongside a photo of the character.

His campaign is also selling a T-shirt that is taking aim at criticism put forward by Republicans over the Senate’s new informal dress code. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced this week relaxed rules on Senate attire, allowing members to enter the chamber in more casual gear – including hoodies, sneakers, or gym wear.

It’s a move that many Republicans said was made to appeal to Fetterman — who frequently sports a hoodie and shorts around the Capitol.

The T-shirt compiles a series of conservatives’ remarks targeting Fetterman over the few days, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) calling him “disgraceful,” former President Trump labeling him as “disgusting” and conservative commentator Monica Crowley calling him “a revolting slob.”
