Running for president is a stressful endeavor. We’ve already witnessed the toll it takes on one’s health when Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) required a heart procedure a few months ago. Though he’s in better health now, it makes one question how much the field of DNC candidates (especially older ones) can handle a potential 4 or 8 years in the White House.
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg, age 77, already has a series of health conditions he’s currently dealing with. He knew this before stepping foot onto the field, but, for some reason, believes he’s in good health. Bloomberg even got a note of “good health” from his doctor, as if he were back in school and needed a doctor’s note before participating in an event.

Let’s see what he’s (self-admittedly) dealing with.
Bloomberg is taking a beta-blocker and other medication to control his cholesterol levels and he also had “small skin cancers” removed.
Last year, Bloomberg formed atrial fibrillation, which is a form of irregular heartbeat that may increase his risk of blood clots and strokes.
Although he’s currently receiving or has received, treatment for the conditions above, heart issues are no joking matter. Can Bloomberg handle the additional stress of staying in the 2020 presidential race when things heat up next year?
