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.
