Sanders has heart procedure, can kiss goodbye to being President

Sanders has heart procedure, can kiss goodbye to being President, by Nicholas Riccardi.

Bernie Sanders’ campaign said Wednesday that the Democratic presidential candidate had a heart procedure for a blocked artery and was canceling events and appearances “until further notice.”

The 78-year-old Vermont senator experienced chest discomfort during a campaign event Tuesday and sought medical evaluation. Two stents were “successfully inserted,” and Sanders “is conversing and in good spirits,” according to the campaign. He’s recovering at a Las Vegas hospital. …

Sanders’ campaign wouldn’t say whether the candidate had suffered a heart attack before the blockage was opened. But a doctor not involved in the care said, if not, Sanders could expect to be back to a normal busy schedule in about a week.

“This will give him more energy,” said Dr. Ron Waksman, an interventional cardiologist at MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute in Washington.

The will probably end Sanders’ run at the Presidency. He’s just too old. Being President is not exactly a stress-free job.

Joe Biden, now known as the “gaffe-machine”, is the main casualty of the impeachment shenanigans so far.

Elizabeth Warren virtually has the Democratic nomination sewn up, barring a new, last-minute candidate like Oprah Winfrey.
