    Sanders appeared with stitches on his forehead during his meeting with healthcare experts in Charleston, South Carolina, Friday.

    Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) got stitched up after what his campaign says was a minor injury sustained while campaigning in South Carolina.

    According to campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones, Sanders cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door Friday and had to walk to a walk-in clinic for medical help. The 77-year-old senator received a half-dozen stitches and was given a "clean bill of health," Jones said.

    She also added that Sanders will not change his schedule and will travel to Nevada for his first presidential rally after he is finished with his scheduled meetings in South Carolina.

    However, not all Twitterians bought the "shower door" explanation, with many users theorizing that something more sinister could have happened.

    ​Sanders also ran for the presidency in 2016, gathering considerable support, but lost to eventual Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. In February, the politician announced he will again run for president in 2020.
