Straight From The Horse's Mouth, "I Was Dumb" Bernie Opens Up

Even though we may not like Bernie Sanders, it's unfortunate that he suffered from a heart attack and had to have a stent placed in his heart.

Earlier this week, Sanders shared the fact that he regrets not paying more attention to some of the symptoms his body told him he had been experiencing leading up to the heart attack.

“But I’ll tell you one thing that I look forward to doing. I must confess that I was dumb,” Sanders told a reporter as he was leaving for a cardiology appointment. “I was born, and thank God, I have a lot of energy. And you know, during this campaign I have been doing in some cases three or four rallies a day running all over the state, Iowa, New Hampshire, wherever.”

“And yet, I in the last month or two just was more fatigued than I usually have been and I should have listened to those symptoms. I should have listened to those symptoms,” he continued. “So, if there is any message that I hope we can get out there, it is that I want people to pay attention to the symptoms. And you know, when you’re hurting, when you’re fatigued, when you have pain in your chest, listen to it.”

Ryan Nobles tweeted,

NEW: @BernieSanders is meeting a cardiologist this morning. A new doctor he has not met with before. Before he left he told reporters that he was "dumb" and should've listened to the warning signs his body was sending him prior to his heart attack.

To be honest, Sanders' health issues should raise a big red flag for anyone that may be considering voting for him in the upcoming election. He's very old and his health is a big reason to take a step back and consider the likelihood that Bernie makes it through the next 5 years.
