DC Rumor: Mitch McConnell Might Never Return to the Senate


According to the NY Times,  Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell had been under observation since suffering a concussion during a fall on Wednesday. He also has a “minor rib fracture,” his office said. He’s off to rehab and rumor has it that he might never return.

Mitch McConnell could be sidelined.

A spokesman, David Popp, said that the lawmaker’s “concussion recovery is proceeding well” and that Mr. McConnell, 81, had been discharged from George Washington University Hospital, where he was taken after the accident at the Waldorf Astoria on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington about 9 p.m. Wednesday.

“At the advice of his physician,” Mr. Popp added in a statement, “the next step will be a period of physical therapy at an inpatient rehabilitation facility before he returns home.”

D.C.. resident and radio host Chris Plante said on his radio show this morning that Mitch is in rehab and might never return to the Senate. That would be great news, but then, who replaces him?

We wish him good health and happiness, but not as a Senate leader.

Well, all I have to say to him is BYE FELICIA! Take your CCP wench with you and don’t let the door hit your *** on the way out. Hopefully before you eject from this mortal coil, you will be met with justice for undermining America and the GOP base for decades. The Cold War never ended because of scum like this. May it finally die with you, Mitch.

I hope he enjoys a long and excruciating decline before descending downward.

Mitch has been grooming Thune to take his place. If that doesn’t work it will be another Mitch uniparty senator.
