Even if there are clowns that make you laugh. children in therapy, no one ever dressed up as a sheriff. ” Luca Bernardo, head of Pediatrics of Fatebenefratelli and candidate for mayor of the center-right for the Municipality of Milan, said this to time.news, replying to the denunciation of the Lombard councilor Michele Usuelli (+ Europe), according to which Bernardo would turn armed with a pistol in the wards of the Fatebenefratelli . “I have had the license for defense for about 10 years, like most doctors – underlines Bernardo -. I find that some leftists should stop using iron curtain methods, using defamation as a tool. For this I have already given sent to my lawyer against defamation. “

The candidate for mayor concludes: “I allow myself one last thing: the fact that after working hours I can go and visit those in need of treatment is in full line with the mandate and mission as a doctor.
