Bernie Sanders was recovering from surgery yesterday. So in honour of the politician who has stood by his principles for decades and spent his entire political career fighting for a more just and equitable society—and who, for his dedication to building and galvanising a vast grassroots movement to challenge decades of neoliberal orthodoxy and for his leftist bonafides, still remains my number one pick for 2020 challenger to Trump—here are some of Bernie Sanders’ best GIFable moments. Rest and recover well, comrade, you’ve got a no holds barred war on billionaires, Big Pharma, the fossil fuel industry, Wall Street, and the military-industrial complex to fight on behalf of those who can’t fight it themselves. ‘Not me, us’ indeed.

While the media carries on about polling, Bernie is quietly building a movement of working class voters, the only real way to take on the lopsided power structure that got us into this mess to begin with. https://t.co/i7zQ4aJ84P

Thanks for all the well wishes. I'm feeling good. I'm fortunate to have good health care and great doctors and nurses helping me to recover.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) October 2, 2019
None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us. And no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. Medicare for All!
