CNN moderator Erin Burnett told Sanders during the debate in Ohio Tuesday that everyone is “very glad” he’s feeling better after a heart attack on Oct. 1. Burnett noted that he is 78 years old and asked, “How do you reassure Democratic voters that you’re up to the stress of the presidency?”

Sanders answered by inviting the public to a rally he is holding in Queens, New York, adding that his campaign will “be mounting a vigorous campaign all over this country.” He noted there will be “a special guest” at the rally, which will take place on Oct. 19.

“That is how I think I can reassure the American people,” Sanders said.

The Vermont senator went on to thank “people from all over this country” plus his competitors on stage Tuesday “for their love, for their prayers, for their well wishes.”

“And I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I’m so happy to be back here with you this evening,” Sanders said as applause rung out from the audience.

Sanders’s health scare kept him away from the campaign trail for a short time, Jeff Weaver, a senior adviser to Sanders, previously noted according to a statement. The presidential candidate had another physical problem in March after cutting his head on a glass shower door and receiving seven stitches.

Former Vice President Joe Biden also had to defend his age following the question directed at Sanders.

  1. Bernie Sanders reassures voters that he can ” lead ” the country despite a heart attack
    he surely will, he’ll lead the country right into ” Financial Ruin ” with his socialist agenda.

    So ” Bernie ” was bragging he’s the only “Real ” Socialist that’s running for President,
    easy for this millionaire to say, that made his wealth with ” Capitalism ” …..Hypocrite.

    So. Socialist Sanders is running as a DemocRAT, in Vermont, he’s an Independent ??
    why isn’t Sanders running as a real ” Socialist ” ?? …… did I mention Hypocrite, yup.

    Bernie’s Minions, are going to be disappointed when the pie in the sky agenda never
    materializes……….he sold you a pig in a poke !!!

  2. After his first heart attack, one can’t help but wonder if there is another on the horizon. Also, be important to know who Berni has in mind as his running mate. Heaven forbid it is AOC.

  3. Who wants a Communist curmudgeon yelling at the all the time,even if one leaned Marxist ones self. There is a whole flock of birds of a Marxist feather in the Commiecrat party,if the Burn hasn’t noticed,he no longer stands out and the mindless youth view him as a curmudgeon who is out of place.
    Even assuming he had excellent health the Burnmeister is toast and he isn’t even aware of it,America isn’t 1980’s in Burlington . He’s done,over, toast .
