CONFIRMED: Doctors Who Operated on Bernie Sanders Verify That He Did Have a Heart Attack

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.”

Despite the fact that Sanders suffered this heart attack, he claims he is fine and ready to get back on the campaign trail. He is not giving up his dream to become President and institute totalitarian socialism upon the masses.

“After two and a half days in the hospital, I feel great, and after taking a short time off, I look forward to getting back to work,” Sanders said in a statement following his release from the Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center.

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.

Unsurprisingly, Sanders is using his health scare as an excuse to shill for universal government-run health care.

Sanders’ heart attack comes at a time when front-runner Joe Biden is in the spotlight for his corrupt behavior as Vice President regarding the Ukraine. Instead of being able to capitalize on the opportunity, Sanders has been sidelined amidst questions about his physical condition to serve as President.

Sanders’ wife, Jane, claims that he will be ready to go by the next presidential debate, which will take place on Oct. 15.

“Bernie is up and about. Yesterday, he spent much of the day talking with staff about policies, cracking jokes with the nurses and doctors, and speaking with his family on the phone. His doctors are pleased with his progress, and there has been no need for any additional procedures,” Jane Sanders said in a statement Thursday afternoon.

“We expect Bernie will be discharged and on a plane back to Burlington before the end of the weekend. He’ll take a few days to rest, but he’s ready to get back out there and is looking forward to the October debate,” she added.

The public will know soon enough if Sanders has the stamina to finish his campaign strong after suffering the heart attack.
