Mitch McConnell heckled by crowd at speech

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was drowned out by a crowd of Kentuckians telling him to “retire” during a speech in the state on Saturday. Many in the media and on social media have described the episode as humiliating.

The 81-year-old Republican recently suffered a public health scare that led many to question whether he should retire from politics. On July 26, McConnell was talking to reporters at the U.S. Capitol when he suddenly froze mid-sentence. He was apparently unable to continue his speech and looked frazzled and confused.

McConnell was led away by his aides and colleagues before returning shortly after to tell reporters he was fine. In March, the senator suffered a concussion after a fall reported by his office. It led him to be hospitalized for several days and remain out of the Senate for almost six weeks.
