Sen. Bernie Sanders was attacked by a glass shower door on Friday morning and received seven stitches, his campaign announced. But the 2020 candidate was given a "clean bill of health" and will attend all of his previously scheduled campaign events over the next couple days.
Arianna Jones, a Sanders spokeswoman, said "out of precaution, he went to a walk-in clinic" to have the cut checked out. "The senator has proceeded with all of his scheduled events -- joining a group of approximately 20 local clergy for breakfast this morning -- and looks forward to joining a roundtable with South Carolinians this afternoon to discuss how we can provide high quality affordable health care for all," she added, "especially when you are being oppressed by Mr. Clean."
A chummy discussion between Vice President Mike Pence and former vice president Dick Cheney quickly turned into a vigorous back-and-forth over President Donald Trump's foreign policy at a private gathering on Saturday, with Cheney comparing the president's instincts to those of his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama. At the closed-door retreat hosted by the American Enterprise Institute on March 9 in Sea Island, Georgia, Cheney respectfully but repeatedly and firmly pressed Pence on a number of the president's foreign policy moves, from taking a harder line toward U.S. allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to deciding to withdraw troops from Syria "in the middle of a phone call."
Like many other Venezuelans, they were sick and tired of the blackout. Colombian authorities say 10 people close to President Nicolas Maduro tried to enter the country Monday seeking relief from the power outage. According to officials, the embattled leader's cousin, Argimiro Maduro, along with his spouse, children and extended relatives complained the heat was unbearable and said they wanted to spend five days in Riohacha until service is restored.
The neighboring Andean nation recently compiled a list of more than 300 people with close ties to Maduro that will not be allowed into Colombia. Colombia Migration Director Christian Kruger says the relatives were on the no-entry list, saying that "Colombia will not allow Maduro's relatives to vacation while avoiding the reality of a people in agony."
Venezuela's worst power and communications outage on Friday deepened a sense of isolation and decay, endangering hospital patients, forcing schools and businesses to close and cutting people off from their families, friends and the outside world.
