Cosplay is a big deal these days, and lots of adults love to participate. That also includes John Fetterman, the Democrat candidate for Senate from Pennsylvania. But it’s his choice of character that has a lot of people going ewwww. 


John Fetterman Played a Demon Who Enslaves Children

There are a host of popular male anime characters for the cosplaying man to portray — a simple Google search will bring them up. There’s even a character named “Ryunosuke Umemiya” who has sort of an Elvis look, complete with bouffant hair, sideburns, and open shirt.

So whom did John Fetterman decide to portray? He played Elias Ainsworth from the Japanese Manga series The Ancient Magus’s Bride. 

Yes, that’s Fetterman below with his wife and children at the 2019 Tekko anime convention in Pittsburg. However, he made a tongue-in-cheek denial that “no, that’s not me. I was really in Blair County” (wink wink).

So why is “Elias Ainsworth” so disturbing? He buys a 15-year-old girl named Chise Hatori, who sold herself at a London slave auction for 5 million pounds. Not only did she become Elias’s slave, but she became his fiancée as well.

Ewww. That’s so creepy that even an anime fan wrote at

“So many things Elias says reeked of things predators actually say to their victims and romanticizing it is gross. He even admits outright that he’s grooming Chise and ‘raising’ her to be perfect for his use.”

The reviewer added that Elias Ainsworth kept “invading [Chise’s] privacy and trying to touch and bathe her without her permission.”

Yet this is the character whom John Fetterman, lieutenant governor of the state of Pennsylvania, thought would be appropriate to portray.


There’s More About Fetterman That Raises Red Flags

Portraying an child groomer at an anime convention is one thing. But there’s even more to John Fetterman that should raise red flags among the people of Pennsylvania.

For instance, in 2013 Fetterman played vigilante by holding an innocent black jogger at gunpoint. Even a liberal writer tweeted, in part:

“I would like white Dems to ask themselves how they would feel knocking on doors in Philly & saying, “You gotta get out to vote for this guy even though he held a Black man at gunpoint. Sorry!”

Moreover, Fetterman didn’t apologize. He also failed to attend a forum of black clergy in Philadelphia held this past January.

On top of that, in June, 2021, John Fetterman voted to free Wayne Covington, a convicted killer who shot and killed an 18-year-old for money to buy heroin. As lieutenant governor, Fetterman is the chair of the state Board of Pardons. And he was the only one to vote to free Covington, who received a life sentence for killing the teen in 1970.

However, Fetterman thinks this is a win for his campaign. He even boasts at his website that he “transformed” the lieutenant governor position into a “bully pulpit:”

“As Lt. Governor, John has transformed the position and made a bully pulpit of the office, advocating for economic justice and criminal justice reform ….”

“As the chair of Pennsylvania’s Board of Pardons, John has led the fight to give second chances to non-violent longtime inmates and free those who have been wrongfully convicted.”

This guy should be nowhere near Capitol Hill.


John Fetterman Goes Joe Biden During Speech

Even if you don’t live in Pennsylvania, you may remember that John Fetterman suffered a severe stroke in May of this year. Even the New York Times expressed concern about his health, noting that doctors implanted a pacemaker and defibrillator in his heart. Medical experts also question whether Fetterman has cardiomyopathy — a weakened heart muscle. While his press office had said that a full recovery was expected, the NYT still had questions:

“Thrombectomy, the method likely used to remove the clot, also indicates that Mr. Fetterman experienced more than a tiny stroke, although prompt treatment may have averted damage and saved his brain.”

And speaking of his brain, John Fetterman struggled in the speech at his first campaign event since his stroke.

White progressives may view John Fetterman as a “cool” candidate with his shaved head, black hoodie, and tattoos, but the voters of Pennsylvania should keep this guy from the Senate — even if it means holding their nose and voting for Mehmet Oz. Cosplaying a groomer child abuser is just one reason why Fetterman is a disaster waiting to happen.

    Fetterman is likely a tool… but I’m sick of people losing their shit over a costume. It’s a costume, not an homage.

    Dress like Hitler for Halloween if you want to – isn’t that the day we’re supposed to pretend to be monsters? Dress like an anime villain at an anime convention – because any hero is only as great as his greatest villain, why not go all out? Wear blackface, wear whiteface, or wear a feathered headdress and pretend you’re Crazy Horse – regardless of occasion, you don’t owe it to people to only make statements/jokes/commentary they understand, but you should always have the right to offend their delicate sensibilities.

    It seems quite hypocritical to decry cancel culture only to attempt to cancel others. Focus on the issues – he’s not a good leadership option.

    With all due respect, that is not what the anime is about.

    The anime is a love story between Chise Hatori and Elias Ainsworth. Elias is a shy creature of wild magic and Chise is a teenage girl who has been abandoned by her parents because of the weird and terrifying visions she sees. Elias purchase of her is an act of kindness. He takes her into his home to protect her from the dangerous magic only she can see.

    He treats her with love, respect and companionship. I don’t remember there being any hint of a sexual relationship between them. It is an anime based on the British fairy myths. The same myths that Shakespeare used when he wrote “A Midsummer Nights Dream”. The latest episodes have to do with the wild stag and the great hunt.
