The Senate is now down three U.S. Senators.
It’s anyone’s guess what that means for upcoming votes.
And Mitch McConnell joined Fetterman and Feinstein in the hospital after a mishap at a private dinner.
Private dinner turned into public trip
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was hospitalized Wednesday night after tripping and falling while at a private dinner at a Washington, D.C., hotel.
McConnell was attending an evening dinner for the Senate Leadership Fund, a political action committee aligned with him, when the accident occurred.
The extent of McConnell’s injuries is still not fully known, but doctors did say he was suffering from a concussion.
And a spokesman for the senator said McConnell is currently receiving treatment and will remain hospitalized for a few days.
Spokesman David Popp told USA Today McConnell is “expected to remain in the hospital for a few days of observation and treatment.”
In January, McConnell became the longest-serving party leader in Senate history.
The 81-year-old Republican Senator was at a private event at the Waldorf Astoria D.C. when he fell, according to sources.
Democrat Senators John Fetterman and Dianne Feinstein have been hospitalized recently, with Fetterman supposedly seeking treatment for depression and Feinstein for shingles.
While Feinstein is now out of the hospital and recuperating at home, Fetterman remains hospitalized under a cloud of mystery.
That means the Senate is now down three Senators.
Not his first trip
This is not the 81-year-old McConnell’s first trip and fall, nor is it the first time his health has been called into question.
In October 2020, McConnell emphatically dismissed concerns about his health after a photo surfaced online of his hands bruised and discolored.
And in 2019, McConnell suffered a fall at his Louisville, Kentucky home, fracturing his shoulder, and leading many observers to believe he was ailing.
McConnell talked with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Schumer wished him a “speedy recovery.”
McConnell’s spokesman said, “The leader is grateful to the medical professionals for their care and to his colleagues for their warm wishes.”
As a child, the Senator was treated for polio, and he has since acknowledged he has some difficulty climbing stairs.
Shortly after news of the fall and McConnell’s subsequent hospitalization broke, leftists began attacking the Minority Leader.
Two of the rudest individuals to comment were Ryan Gilbert, a digital content producer for Audacy Sports, and Zito Madu, a freelance writer.
They were responding to calls from people on both sides of the aisle asking to keep McConnell in thoughts and prayers.
“Here’s a thought I’ll be keeping him in: F—Mitch McConnell,” Gilbert wrote.
“It’s Mitch McConnell. If you’re keeping him in your prayers, it better be to pray that the devil finally comes for him,” Madu said in a tweet.
Once again the “tolerant Left” shows their true nature.
