Republican senators were forced to scramble Wednesday when Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell just stopped mid-way during a press conference and looked on.
The 81-year-old politician’s colleagues could be seen holding him up to make sure he didn’t fall.
National radio host Todd Starnes added, “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell looks incredibly unwell…Pray for Sen. McConnell!”

When a reporter asked McConnell if his pause was related to his concussion earlier this year, he responded, “I’m fine.”
Q: "Could you address what happened here at the start of the press conference and was it related to your injury from earlier this year where you suffered a concussion?"
Sen. McConnell: "I'm fine."
Q: "You're fine? You're fully able to do your job?"
McConnell: "Yeah." pic.twitter.com/Can1RtzqmM
