Bernie Emerges from Health Scare to Insult Liz Warren as a ‘Capitalist’

Vermont Senator and 2016 Democratic primary runner-up Bernie Sanders had quite the health scare just days ago.

While campaigning for the 2020 nomination, Sanders asked for a chair while speaking – something he never does – to deal with some discomfort that he was having.  Then, after his speech, the septuagenarian Senator got check out by a doctor…and perhaps not a minute too soon.

Sanders was having a heart attack, albeit a mild one, and was soon going under the knife to have two stents placed in his arteries.

Some believed that this would spell the end of Bernie’s current campaign, but no; Bernie is pushing on, determined to let his democratic socialism ruin his chances at the Oval Office instead.

His latest angle is attacking Senator Liz Warren, who is currently on a rapid rise to overtake frontrunner and former Vice President Joe Biden.

On Sunday’s broadcast of  ABC’s “This Week,” 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) noted his 2020 Democratic presidential nomination race opponent Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was a self-proclaimed “capitalist,” while he was not.

Sanders said, “I think she’s a very, very good senator, but there are differences between Elizabeth and myself. Elizabeth, as you know, said she’s a capitalist through her bones. I’m not. I think the situation we face in this country of the greed and corruption that is existing in Washington, that is existing at the corporate elite level where you have massive amounts of price-fixing going on with the drug companies.”

Sanders and Warren have largely been seen as two peas in a pod during this election cycle, with Warren openly admitting that she has lifted Bernie’s healthcare plan as her own, and Sanders having been previously quite fond of touting Warren’s financial acumen.

Sanders seems to have taken the gloves off with his hospital gown.
