WHOA: Mitch McConnell Suffers Apparent Medical Incident During Live Interview [VIDEO]

Now, I will say this upfront, I am not the biggest fan of Mitch McConnell. However, I will say that I am a person that has a heart and is willing to drop my sword for a moment when it comes to things of a medical nature. But it also serves as a warning that maybe some people need to know when to pack it in.

We have to realize that there are some people in Congress right now that are older than dirt, and when they get old they start having problems that are little hints that maybe they need to step aside.

I know Mitch has had some medical issues the past few years, and maybe this is one of those incidents where he should take the hint his body is trying to give him.

Either way, this must have been terrifying…

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared to freeze up during a news conference with other Republican leaders following their weekly party luncheon Wednesday afternoon.

“Good afternoon, everyone. We’re on a path to finishing the NDAA this week, there’s been good bipartisan cooperation and a string of…” McConnell said, before trailing off and staring blankly for nearly a minute before colleagues intervened.

“You OK, Mitch?” Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wy., asked. “Is there anything else you want to say or should we just go back to your office?”

McConnell then stepped to the side as Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., and others addressed the press on the one-year anniversary of the Democrat-led Inflation Reduction Act passage. He reappeared about 10 minutes later to finish the press conference.

“I’m fine,” he told reporters.

Earlier this year, McConnell, 81, suffered a concussion and fractured rib from a fall in a Washington hotel.

A McConnell aide told Fox News that the senator “felt light headed and stepped away for a moment. He came back to handle Q and A, which as everyone observed was sharp.”
