Senator Rand Paul, a physician, doubted the official narrative being pushed out by Mitch McConnell’s handlers to explain away his freezing episodes.

81-year-old Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is “medically clear” to continue work after he froze up for the second time within the last month on Wednesday.

And this is just what we have seen in public. Certainly, McConnell is having these episodes in private as well.

McConnell was holding a press conference in Covington, Kentucky last Wednesday when he went into a catatonic state.

Mitch McConnell temporarily froze and was unable to speak. An aide came to his rescue and promptly ended the press conference.

Late last month McConnell became unresponsive and stared blankly during a Senate press conference.

As TGP’s Kristinn Taylor reported, McConnell suffered a concussion and a broken bone after a fall in March. He was hospitalized and did a stint in rehab before returning to the Senate in mid-April.

A Capitol physician suggested McConnell is experiencing small seizures due to dehydration.

“I have consulted with Leader McConnell and conferred with his neurology team. After evaluating yesterday’s incident, I have informed Leader McConnell that he is medically clear to continue with his schedule as planned. Occasional lightheadedness is not uncommon in concussion recovery and can also be expected as a result of dehydration,” Capitol physician Brian Monahan said in a statement last Thursday.

Senator Rand Paul is not buying it.

“I think it’s an inadequate explanation to say this is dehydration… Well, I practiced medicine for 25 years and it doesn’t look like dehydration to me, it looks like a focal neurologic event,’” Rand Paul said to reporters on Tuesday.
