Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) office is releasing more details on the senior’s sudden hospital visit.
The 81-year-old Senator fell at a dinner event on Wednesday evening at the Waldorf Astoria for the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC closely affiliated with the leader. He is being treated for a concussion and will stay in the hospital for the next few days for treatment and observation, according to reports from The Hill.
“Leader McConnell tripped at a dinner event Wednesday evening and has been admitted to the hospital and is being treated for a concussion. He is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days of observation and treatment,” his office announced Thursday, breaking hours of silence after revealing Wednesday evening that the GOP leader had tripped and injured himself at a local hotel.
“The Leader is grateful to the medical professionals for their care and to his colleagues for their warm wishes,” McConnell’s office said.
McConnell won election to a seventh term in 2020 and is next up for reelection in 2026.
Critics of the senior lawmaker wasted no time before offering their distasteful remarks.
However, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer offered prayers for McConnell and his family in his opening remarks on Thursday. Sen. Schumer said he spoke with the Republican Senator Thursday morning and wished him a full and speedy recovery.
Controversial conservative influencer Laura Loomer offered her own crass remarks on Twitter.

KEEP HIM THERE FOR GOOD, APT. A NEW SPEAKER.
Nothing like kicking a guy when he’s down. Even the democrats aren’t doing that. if we’re going to be a great people we have to act like a great people.
Mc CON L is the single worst representative in America today, a liar backstabber commie loving godless evil creature! He is the worst anti American there is because he promotes himself as caring about America while using every power he has to destroy it! He is a truly evil twisted liar!
Maybe just maybe it knocked some sense into him, useless evil twit.
It couldn’t have happened to a more swamp rat than Mr. Ronald McDonald the Clown. He was practicing some of his slithering snake and turtle tricks and missed. Maybe now and his Communist Chinese wife will retire in Beijing where they both stock stock in trust in Communist Chinese countries and she and Hunter Biden are on Boards of Directors.
Is it–dare I hope–POSSIBLE that the concussion knocked some sense into him?
