    Too bad it'll all be wasted in an office with no responsibility.

    Nikki's competency test for old people is tripping them to see how fragile they are. Mitch failed.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell hospitalized after falling
    McConnell, R-Ky., tripped at a hotel and was taken to a hospital, a spokesperson said. Additional information about his condition was not immediately available.

    WASHINGTON — Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was hospitalized after tripping at a hotel Wednesday night, a spokesperson said.

    “This evening, Leader McConnell tripped at a local hotel during a private dinner. He has been admitted to the hospital where he is receiving treatment,” McConnell spokesman David Popp said in a statement.

    McConnell, 81, fell at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Washington D.C., a spokesperson for the senator confirmed to NBC News.

    A spokesman for the District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department, Vito Maggiolo, told NBC News on Thursday morning that an “adult male” was transported from the Waldorf Astoria at 9:17 pm Wednesday, and the call was dispatched after a report of a fall at the hotel. The person was transported to a local hospital and “notes did not indicate patient condition,” Maggiolo said.

    Maggiolo said he could not specify whether the person who fell was McConnell or which hospital he was taken to, citing privacy issues under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

    In 2019, McConnell suffered a shoulder fracture after he tripped and fell at his home in Kentucky. The GOP leader underwent surgery for the fracture.

    McConnell is serving a seventh term in the Senate, after being first elected in 1984. He was Senate majority leader until early 2021.

    No additional information was immediately available about his condition Wednesday night.

    The incident was first reported by Punchbowl News, a politics news website.

    McConnell was first elected to the Senate in the 1984, and in 2020 was re-elected to serve a seventh term.

    He was Senate majority leader from 2015 until early 2021, when Democrats took over in the majority after the 2020 elections.​

    No, no. The competency test only matters if you assign a (D) next to your name. Biden and Feinstein are too old. McConnell and Grassley are doing great.

    Ohhhhhh...Right! Because Republicans are the master race and superiorly healthy while Democrats are floppy wilting pansies. Makes total sense.
    • R= Age/Years of Service
    • D= Age*Years of Service

    Thanks for pointing that out. Protecting children is worth all the democratic liberties that enabled us to choose which liberties to eliminate to protect the children.

    She could be VP which could lead to a border czar gig.

    As a taxpayer the only thing I am unhappy about is they did away with the expanded child tax credits that temporarily gutted child poverty. Thanks Manchin.

    As long as you pay your taxes and don’t try and cheat the system all is fine. IRS processed my return quick and easy.
