I don't know why are you keeping up this act. It's not hard to see what you're trying to do, playing dumb isn't this incredible strategy you think it is.
Fainting is the same as a heart attack?
Ah yes, my super secret nefarious plot to *checks notes* get a candidate to follow through with a recent promise and avoid being attacked for it in a general. You got me!
It's going to be brought up in the general if he makes it. Might as well get it out the way now like he actually promised. Instead of Hillary's emails we going to be talking about Bernie's health records.
You not caring is not proof nobody does. Fainting is not equivalent to having a heart attack, and that was news people were talking about.
Of course it's not, but it didn't stop right wing media from saying shes was gonna die during her presidency lol. This won't stop that either. They talked about her fainting as well.
Any person can die at any time. With how normalized assassination is after this Iran situation, well health isn't the only worry you should have anymore. Nor do I go around assuming someone is going to die soon or be killed.
If he dies in office the left is going to be immensely demoralised given how revered Bernie is to his followers. They're not going to shrug it ff like nothing.Literally do not care because Bernie is the closest that aligns with my political views. If he dies prematurely then I will be incredibly sad but at this moment, I just want him to fight how I believe he is going to. Also this reeks of the whole BS we had to go through with his taxes what awesome concern trolling that was.
Not exactly, some people are more vulnerable to dying than others. That's a bizarre comparison. You should when they're an old man with a heart condition whose going to be president.
Or they’ll be emboldened and treat him like a martyr and come out even harder in 2024. Look ma, I can do baseless speculation based on a scenario that has less than a 0.00001% chance of happening too!
Hillary fainted because for a brief second, Jesus showed her the future.
Republicans will accuse him of being " a secret Negro " if he wins the primary.
I don't have to be a leftist to care about an old politician dying in office. Question is, why don't you?
It's not baseless speculation to be worried about an old man who had a heart attack, Bernie's not running for city council.
this is heavy speculative yo. Last time a left leaning president died the next election was a crushing victory for the left.
But it IS baseless speculation to assume what Bernie’s base would do if the worst were to happen.
You're again assuming he will die, with this logic nobody can be president. Anyone can die at any time. I'm not worried about him dying, even if he's only in for a week he will do more to help people in this country than any other candidate. I also have faith he will pick a VP that aligns with his values.
You don't need to be a psychic to figure out a candidate's base freaking out when they die in office. That'll happen to any politician.
If you ignore Bernie's health. Which was when?
My logic is why I'm concerned about all the older candidates being president. This ignores the context for Bernie's health, as though he's got the same health history as Buttibutt. No, he won't. What if he has a VP you don't like?You're again assuming he will die, with this logic nobody can be president. Anyone can die at any time. I'm not worried about him dying, even if he's only in for a week he will do more to help people in this country than any other candidate. I also have faith he will pick a VP that aligns with his values.
I honestly really can't imagine a scenario where if Bernie finally gets into the White House after years of Trump, two brutal elections, constant hope, and then he passes away in office... he doesn't become a martyr that galvanizes the left of this country.
yeah but you said leftists would be demoralized, you didn't say you cared if he died. why even pretend to care if leftists would be demoralized when you would clearly love that
You think it's impossible leftists won't be demoralised by Bernie's dying? I do care about him dying. I'm not pretending to care and I wouldn't be happy about it, either. It'd bizarre why you'd assume just because people aren't in your group that you think we have no empathy.
no, i think it's impossible you would give a shit about them being demoralized so why even bring it up
Ah, so it's purely about age then? Well, I hope you voice your concern about the health of Biden and Warren as well. I'm not going to be speculative about his VP pick, I'll cross that bridge if it happens. I just have my doubts.
Still voting for him in the primary and hopefully the general if he gets the nom. It is not my fault that I find the other candidates subpar in comparison. Maybe the Dems should field better candidates.
Because it's important, both from a human perspective and a political one. I bought it up because its a valid concern so if it does happen it won't hit people like a tonne of bricks.
Candidates come to the Dems, not the other way around. How do you think Bernie got in?
Warren is not losing support. She seems to be plateauing, which could be due to any number of reasons. Far too early to say her campaign is in any trouble. If anyone is beginning to lose support, it’s Buttieg.Some added context:
Shame Warren goes above and beyond the other candidates and seems to be losing support. She's my number 2.
