Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, 81, froze for the second time while answering questions during a press conference in Kentucky on Wednesday.
The aging Republican “leader” stared into space for roughly 30 seconds, in almost the exact same manner as he did on Capitol Hill in July. Despite his obviously ailing health, his doctor cleared him to continue working. “Occasional lightheadedness is not uncommon in concussion recovery and can also be expected as a result of dehydration,” McConnell’s doctor, Dr. Brian Monahan, said in a letter shared Thursday.
McConnell apparently suffered a concussion in March after he fell during a political fundraising event, CNBC reported.
Is This Elder Abuse?
McConnell froze right after he was asked whether he was considering running for reelection. His tragic medical episode should have answered the question for McConnell and his staff: no, he’s not going to run again. He does not have the mental and physical faculties to be in any position of power.
He also clearly needs to focus on his health, and ensure that he can recover appropriately from his previous injury — something he obviously hasn’t had time to do.
