Last week, Bernie Sanders suffered from a heart attack and had to have a stent placed in his heart.
On Tuesday, Sanders opened up and shared that he regrets not paying more attention to his body and some of the symptoms 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.”

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.

Sanders’ health issues should raise a big concern for anyone who is looking to vote for him in the upcoming election. His age and his health should cause one to step back and evaluate Bernie’s likelihood of making it through the next 5 years. Not to mention his poor mental disease of socialism.
