Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is back on the campaign trail following his recent heart attack, but he has admitted that he will be forced to slow down substantially due to his health concerns.
“I think we’re going to change the nature of the campaign a bit,” Sanders told reporters gathered outside his Burlington home following his visit to a cardiologist. “I’ll make sure I have the strength to do what I have to do.”
The 78-year-old radical socialist also admits that the heart attack might not help his chances to be the Democratic Party nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.
“Look, everything that happens every day weighs on how people feel about you,” he added. “You look at the totality of who a candidate is. You look at what that candidate stands for, the integrity of that candidate, the history of that candidate. I have been fighting for working families for my entire adult life.”
Sanders admits that he made serious mistakes in misjudging his stamina and his ability to campaign at his age.
“I must confess, I was dumb. I was born and thank God, I have a lot of energy. And during this campaign, I’ve been doing in some cases three or four rallies a day, going all over the state, Iowa, New Hampshire, wherever. And yet I in the last month or two, just more fatigued than I usually have been,” Sanders said.
After Sanders had his heart attack on Oct. 1, the media initially covered for him until the campaign was forced to admit the obvious:
The doctors who operated on the heart of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) earlier this week have confirmed that the Democrat presidential contender did in fact suffer a heart attack, despite widespread reports to the contrary.
In their official statement, the doctors noted that Sanders suffered from a “myocardial infarction,” which is the technical term for heart attack.
“The Senator was stable upon arrival and taken immediately to the cardiac catheterization laboratory, at which time two stents were placed in a blocked coronary artery in a timely fashion,” the doctors’ statement read. “All other arteries were normal.” …
Before the announcement was made, the fake news would not admit that Sanders suffered from a heart attack. They mentioned that he had an artery blockage, and the need to put stents inside of his blocked artery, but stopped short at admitting the obvious.
The campaign tried to minimize what happened at first as well.
“During a campaign event yesterday evening, Sen. Sanders experienced some chest discomfort,” the campaign’s senior adviser Jeff Weaver said in the initial announcement.
“Following medical evaluation and testing he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted. Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days. We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates,” he added.
Even with former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign cratering with his illicit Ukrainian quid pro quo in the spotlight, Sanders will not likely be able to capitalize because of his waning health.
Kanye West Announces Presidential Campaign; 2020 Spoiler?
A shock entry to the Presidential race.
Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION
— ye (@kanyewest) July 5, 2020
West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.
Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.
However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.
West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.
Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
