Perhaps you missed it amid all the muck and mire that’s currently going on in this nation but something seemed to be up with Senator Mitch McConnell lately.
Recently, the Associated Press published images of the Senate Majority Leader with what appeared to be pretty severe bruises and damage on his hands and face, as well as bandages on his hands. Unsurprisingly, it’s led Americans to wonder and speculate as to what’s going on with one of Donald Trump’s biggest sycophants.
At this point, there’s truly no telling. The virus has recently run rampant among the President’s closest allies, making people seriously suspicious as to whether Mitch was one of the unlucky ones to come down with it and just didn’t tell anyone, not to mention, the guy is up there in age. However, McConnell made it clear that if there is something going on with his health, he won’t be making us privy to that information.
CNN confronted the Senator over the photos and speculations about his health, and Mitch’s response was as plain as boiled oatmeal. Asked whether he had any health concerns or troubles, the 78-year-old Senate Majority Leader said he has “no problems.” Saying, “Of course not.”
CNN reported that the Kentucky Senator “did not respond when asked if he was being treated by a doctor. An aide to McConnell also declined to provide any additional details when asked multiple times about the majority leader’s health.”
Earlier this month, the Courier-Journal reported that Mitch McConnell “refused to say whether he had recently been tested” for COVID-19.
The Senator stated:
Have I ever been tested? Yes. But I’m not going to answer questions about when.”
Social media is full of thoughts and questions on the situation:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday was photographed with what appear to be disturbing bruises on his face and hands, and with bandages on his hands as well, but he is refusing to share with voters what health issues he is suffering from.

McConnell IS NOT WELL! “Sen Mitch McConnell did not answer questions about his health Thurs, only saying there were “no concerns” after reporters asked him about what appeared to be bruises and bandages on his hands in recent days.” #DitchMitch @senatemajldr

If Nancy Pelosi had a black eye, bruised lip, and her hands looked like they were necrotizing, it would be a 24/7 news story. But McConnell just handwaved it and the MSM nodded along like they did when Bernie showed up with a bandage the size of a hoagie on his head. pic.twitter.com/HzbxBmfJlh

I guess he’s too concerned with blocking COVID relief to Americans to fork over any info on his nasty looking hands.
