Bernie Sanders Undergoes Heart Procedure for Blockage of Artery

By PoliZette Staff | October 2, 2019

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) experienced chest discomfort during a campaign event he was holding in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Tuesday.

And he has now had two stents inserted to address a blockage that doctors found in an artery after he was hospitalized, his campaign announced and multiple outlets are reporting on Wednesday mid-morning.

“Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days,” Sanders’ senior adviser Jeff Weaver said in a statement.

“We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates.”

The campaign stresses the “good spirits” — but “until further notice” also carries an ominous note.

Sanders is 78.

Back in March he bumped his head and had to have stitches, Fox News reported.

“It is the second time this cycle that Sen. Sanders … has had to deal with some medical issues on the trail,” reported Peter Doocy of Fox News on Wednesday morning.

“During a campaign event yesterday evening, Sen. Sanders experienced some chest discomfort,” the Sanders campaign statement also said.

“Following medical evaluation and testing he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted.”

  • Maybe the inability of Sanders to answer simple economic questions about his free Shiite programs, probably increased the rate of his heart disease.

  • I believe that it is a sign from G-d. I'm not a bible quoting individuals but I do believe that G-d sends His messages to us in so many different ways. America does NOT want socialism nor communism and if this isn't a VERY strong message to Bernie I do not know what is!!!! Pay close attention Mr. Sanders He is talking to YOU!!! G-d Bless America, G-d Bless Israel G-d Bless President Trump 2020!!

  • He's too old to run. So is Biden. We can't have someone who isn't in the best of health taking that office. We can't afford to at this point. Neither of them will win anyway so its a moot point but just the thought of it. He needs to pull up his recliner and rest for another 10 years.

  • No one wants a president with heart problems and while he is in there maybe they could do something about his dementia, that has to be a problem with all the off the wall stuff he comes out with... I do however hope he fairs well with his heart issue..

  • Count me one of those driven ctazy by the Left's antics and tolerance. I wish him the same kind of recovery I have seen the Left wish so many others.

  • Let's look on the bright side of all this. Soon there will be a real estate agent making money on one side of the world and another else where making money preparing for Bernie's entry into a hot zone. Its a win-win.

  • Consider retirement Bernie and lighten up. Life’s too short and the political arena is hazardous to your health and that of society in recent years, mental health in particular.
