Bernie Sanders’ doctors say he is fit to serve as president after heart attack

CNBC: About three months after Sen. Bernie Sanders had a heart attack, doctors said the 78-year-old presidential hopeful is fit to serve in the White House.

“At this point, I see no reason why he cannot continue campaigning without limitation and, should he be elected, I am confident he has the mental and physical stamina to fully undertake the rigors of the Presidency,” wrote Martin LeWinter, an attending cardiologist at the University of Vermont Medical Center, in one of three doctors’ assessments the Sanders campaign released on Monday.

Questions about age and health have swirled around the 2020 Democratic presidential primary field as three septuagenarians run near the front of the pack. The campaigns of 77-year-old former Vice President Joe Biden and 70-year-old Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., have also released medical summaries saying the candidates are fit to serve as president.

The campaign of another primary hopeful, 77-year-old Mike Bloomberg, also released a medical summary saying the former New York City mayor is in “outstanding health.”

Sanders, who had stents inserted in October following a partial artery blockage, has resumed normal campaign activities. read more

14 Comments on Bernie Sanders’ doctors say he is fit to serve as president after heart attack

  1. I can’t remember how old I was when I understood that doctors lie a lot. It might of been when they told us that Lucky Strikes are good for you.

  2. Baseball? Sure. Because he’s American right? Yeah sure. They aren’t Americans. Loyal to their homeland.


    How dumb is our nation to not see this?

  3. LSMFT, Lucky Strikes Means Fine Tobacco. Remember that one of Jack Benny’s sponsors was Lucky Strikes as plugged by Don Wilson. And Jack Webb shilled for Chesterfields and died from lung cancer because he smoked too many Chesterfield’s.

  4. “Fit to serve as president.”
    If that’s his professional diagnosis, I’ll bet he also quacks like a duck pretty well too.

  5. Reminds me of the old joke where a man suffers a hand injury and asks the doctor if he’ll be able to play his violin after surgery. “Sure you can” says the doc. “That’s a miracle because I couldn’t play a lick before”.

  6. “Fit to serve …” = “Still breathing …”

    Means absolutely nothing.
    A phone man once told me “… works … works … works … don’t work!”
    Same goes for people: “… alive … alive … alive … dead!”
    Good people die … but then, so do shitheads. Neither Warren nor Sanders is gonna get out alive – regardless of what their doctors aver.

    izlamo delenda est …

  7. when you are a devoted to an ideology that that had murdered 100 million people not having a heart is a resume enhancer not a flaw.
