Here’s What Happened Before Mitch McConnell Just Froze For Nearly Half A Minute In Front Of The Cameras And Was Pulled Away From Podium

Is this Sen. Mitch McConnell’s “Good morning, Sunday morning” moment??

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell froze and appeared unwell while speaking at a press conference before being dragged away from the podium by his staff.

McConnell was mid-sentence when suddenly he stopped speaking.

Everyone was wondering what happened but no one noticed the obvious!

The lady in green purposeful touches his right hand and then at that moment complete silence. What are the odds? Watch closely.

What really happened and why did McConnell freeze right after she touched him?

The 81-year-old was ushered away from the podium by staff members after an extended silence.

The press asked him about the incident:

However, no one asked why he froze because maybe it wasn’t a health issue!

In a follow-up video posted to social media by Scripps News Service correspondent Nathaniel Reed, McConnell seemed to have recovered.

He even cracked a joke, saying, “The President called to check up on me and I told him I got sandbagged.” He may have been using the definition of the word “sandbagged,” as in hit or stunned, as if with a sandbag, or he may have been referring to a recent incident when President Joe Biden tripped over a sandbag on a stage and fell down during commencement exercises at the U.S. Air Force Academy.

McConnell disregarded a reporter’s question about whether he had seen a doctor since the incident, the Washington Post reported.

“I’m fine. That’s the important part,” McConnell responded.

McConnell, elected in 1984, is the longest-serving Kentucky senator, according to Politico.

He is up for re-election in 2026, CNN reported, but he “has repeatedly declined to say if he will run for another term or try to run for GOP leader again in the next Congress, which begins in 2025.”
