The life of the gadol hador is at risk and you offer a fashion commentary about his political hacks??? Perhaps you would also take the time to offer a capital tehillim for a refuah shelamah for Chacham Ovadia

The gadol was already out of surgery and was downgraded from the ICU.

And what is a capital tehilim? it's 'capitle' which is Yiddish/german for chapter, do you know why it is capitle and not Perek??
