Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is one of the oldest politicians in D.C. That could all change after what just happened.
And Mitch McConnell was sent to the hospital after a terrifying incident.
Mitch McConnell has been in the U.S. Senate for the better part of four decades.
During his tenure, he has gone from a decent conservative ally to a RINO willing to “play ball” with the radical Left.
Many in the Republican Party have called for fresh blood to replace the aging establishment that McConnell embodies.
But they may not have to wait much longer to get their chance.
Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was transported to the hospital on Wednesday evening after collapsing during a meal.
“This evening, Leader McConnell tripped at a local hotel during a private dinner,” a spokesperson for McConnell said. “He has been admitted to the hospital where he is receiving treatment.”
There was no other information offered. The 81-year-old senator is a polio survivor who has experienced balance concerns and sometimes needs to walk with the help of rails.
McConnell injured his shoulder in 2019 after tripping and falling at his Kentucky home.
McConnell’s hospitalization follows that of Senators John Fetterman (D-PA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) in recent weeks.
Feinstein was hospitalized in San Francisco last week after being diagnosed with shingles, according to a statement. She is said to be healing at home presently.
After experiencing symptoms of acute depression, Fetterman admitted himself into a mental health institution on the night of February 15 at the recommendation of the attending physician of the United States Congress. According to NBC News, Fetterman was anticipated to remain hospitalized for several weeks.
According to the New York Times, Fetterman is dealing with “serious mental health” concerns and frequently cannot understand what others are saying to him after suffering a stroke last year that nearly killed him.
According to the research, Fetterman’s problems become much worse when he is under stress.
According to the study, Fetterman has stated that when he is stressed, people’s voices become muffled.
Fetterman was admitted to the hospital in February after feeling dizzy at a Democratic Senate retreat.
Fetterman’s employees said that doctors told them he hadn’t had another stroke and that they checked for symptoms of seizures.
The stroke last year had a “very real psychological toll” on him, according to the source, and he has “had to come to terms with the fact that he may have set himself back permanently by not taking the recommended amount of rest during the campaign.”
