Klobuchar remarked on CNN, according to Politico. “He had a temperature over 100 degrees for ten days, and then he ended up going in after he was coughing up blood for tests and X-rays. They checked him right away and said he had pneumonia. And he was on oxygen for four or five days, and then somehow turned the corner, and he’s now recovering at home. They still don’t know when he won’t be contagious, so I am going to go wave to him outside the window.”
