81-year-old Kentucky senator Mitch McConnell is apparently “completely recovered” after having two freeze-up episodes, or at least that’s what he told "Face the Nation."
“I’m fine. I’m completely recovered and, uh, just fine,” he said when asked how he was feeling.
According to Capitol physician Dr. Monahan, there is “no evidence of Parkinson's disease or a stroke or a seizure,” which raises the question: Then WHAT happened? People don’t just randomly go into a state of paralysis during press conferences.
The only semi-answer McConnell gave was that he was “dehydrated,” but Pat Gray doesn’t buy it and calls McConnell’s explanation “BS.”
“Is there anything the public should know that wasn’t disclosed?” a "Face the Nation" reporter asked McConnell.
“I'm in good shape, completely recovered, and back on the job,” was his non-response.
“So does that mean that you think you are able to continue serving and you want to continue serving here at a time when we are talking about incredible dysfunction in Washington?” she pressed.
“I think we ought to be talking about what we were talking about earlier rather than my health,” he obstinately fired back.
Keith Malinak is dissatisfied with this refusal to answer and thinks McConnell not only owes the people an explanation for the “two times that [he] stared off into nothingness,” but also for the times he “fell on the plane” and “fell down the stairs.”
“You're the Senate majority leader,” says Pat. “You can't act like that was dehydration.”
“Explain to us why your wife didn't want you to come home and sent you to a care facility. … You were that bad off with dehydration that she didn't want you home” and instead “sent you to the rehab center?” questions Jeffy.
While we may never get the answers we desire, one thing is clear: We need term limits.
