Sanders responded by saying he would demonstrate his vitality by "mounting a vigorous campaign all over this country," starting with a "major rally we're having in Queens, New York."

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) quipped that Sanders "supports medical marijuana."

"But I'm not on it tonight," Sanders joked in response.

Sanders went on to thank those who reached out to him after his heart attack, including his on-stage rivals, and expressed gratitude to "so many people from all over this country for their love, for their prayers, for their well-wishes ... and I just want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart."

Sanders underwent a stent procedure earlier this month to treat a blocked artery after he experienced what one of his senior advisers initially called "chest discomfort" during a campaign event in Las Vegas. Days later, after Sanders was discharged from the hospital, his campaign revealed that he had suffered a heart attack.

Sanders later said it was "dumb" for him to be as active as he had been.

"During this campaign, I've been doing, in some cases three or four rallies a day, running all over the state - Iowa, New Hampshire, wherever," he told reporters. "And yet I, in the last month or two, just was more fatigued than I usually have been."

Jay Ambrose: Trump still not as bad as the Democrats .
President Donald Trump, surrounded by political enemies constructing an underhanded, dishonest impeachment, pretty much told the nation that he did not belong in the White House when he decided to yank our troops out of Syria. It was a disastrous, ignorant move serving no end but revived terrorism, murderous calamity for our Kurdish allies and uplift for a vile, power-seeking Turkish dictatorship. Trump had an excuse, namely that we weren’t ever going to change the Middle East in any substantive way and that we had little at stake. The rest of the world was pretty much putting the peace burden on the United States with us facing the loss of lives and money.
