nearvideo-Bernie Sanders speaks with the press in Vermont
Senator Sanders discusses his health with the press.
Sen Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., admitted Tuesday he was “stupid” and ignored the warning signs of a health condition in the months prior to his heart attack last week.
“I must confess, I was stupid,” the 2020 presidential candidate, said in front of his house in Burlington, Vt. “Thank God, I have a lot of energy during this campaign. I have made, in some cases, three or four rallies of the day, all go to the state of Iowa, New Hampshire, where. And yet I have in the last month or two, just was more tired than I otherwise might have been.”
“I should have heard that said those symptoms,” the 78-year-old presidential candidate.
BERNIE SANDERS WAS DISCHARGED FROM THE HOSPITAL, THE DOCTORS SAY HE SUFFERED A HEART ATTACK
Sanders revealed that he let alone never been to a doctor in his home town of Vermont, “because, as a cardiologist,” because his house is a doctor based in Washington, DC
“We go to meet him,” said Sanders moments before to visit in a car with his wife, Jane, the appointment with his new doctor. “I understand he is a very good cardiologist. Go to see him on a regular basis to do some checkups, and of course, I’m going to-and-from Vermont and so we are going to to him to meet today.”
Sanders claimed that he had “the good sense” not to add that he think, the heart attack, he inserted two stents in his chest, help in blood circulation, “helps or hurts” his chances against President Trump in the year 2020.
His campaign also shut down any skepticism played, that his complaints would have a negative impact on his presidential run.
“Make no mistake, sen. Bernie Sanders is committed to — the more so, now even more than he was getting, if that’s even possible,” national campaign co-chair Nina Turner told the Associated Press in an interview.
Sanders is scheduled to participate in the fourth Democratic presidential debate in Ohio next week. He said Tuesday that he “intends certainly, to actively in the election” but “change the nature” and of the frequency of rallies and events, to “ensure I have the strength to do what I have to do.”
“We were, you know, in some cases, five or six meetings per day, three or four rallies and public meetings and meetings with groups of people,” said Sanders about his campaign before his heart attack. “I don’t think I’ll do that.”
Even before Sanders was brought to the hospital after complaints of pain to face, in the chest during a campaign event in Nevada last week, the candidate, questions about his age. The 78-year-old is the oldest candidate in the race and would be the oldest person elected President, should he win.
Sanders said that he is still the release of his medical records, which promises to do “at the appropriate time to plant.”
