CNN Mitch McConnell Likely Having Seizures

CNN medical analyst Dr Jonathan Reiner said that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is most likely suffering seizures following videos showing how he froze in the middle of press conference in Kentucky on Wednesday

Reiner said, “The Senator has had a really precipitous decline in his health over the last several months, and it’s playing out very publicly. So, my heart goes out to him.”

“What I see basically is the Senator becoming perhaps a little bit confused, and he stares off to the side, sort of to the upper side, and is unable to speak for about ten seconds. That looks like he’s having a type of seizure called an absence seizure.”

Reiner added:

“The Senator had a really traumatic brain injury in March when he fell. And about 10% of people who have a big enough injury to be hospitalized after a head injury like that will subsequently have things like a seizure.”

“And that’s what it looks like to me. They basically are mirror images of the one he had about five weeks ago. They basically are mirror images.”

He concluded”

“I would be very surprised if the Senator has not had a thorough neurologic evaluation. The folks who work on Capitol Hill, the House, and members of the Senate have a really wonderfully sophisticated group of doctors who work basically for them.”

“So I’m sure the Senator has availed himself of their expertise, and they’ve probably done a very deep dive into why the last episode five weeks ago occurred. So, I think that’s why maybe there’s no apparent sense of urgency now.”

Watch

McConnell froze up when answering a simple question from reporters during a press conference on Wednesday.

Even though seizures seem the likely explanation, a spokesperson for Mitch McConnell claimed, “Leader McConnell felt momentarily lightheaded and paused during his press conference today.”

The incident, which marks the second time McConnell glitched out, sparked fresh concerns about age limits on government officials.

Watch

A reporter asked, “What are your thoughts on running for re-election?”

“What’re my thoughts about what?” the GOP leader asked, confused.

“What are your thoughts on running for re-election?” a reporter asked McConnell.

“What’re my thoughts about what?” the GOP leader repeated.

“What are your thoughts on running for re-election in 2026?” the reporter asked.

Then McConnell stared blankly for 10 seconds before an aide appeared beside him and asked, “Did you hear the question, Senator? Running for re-election in 2026?”

“I’m okay,” he told the aide.
