A Kentucky crowd viciously booed and heckled Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) at the St. Jerome Fancy Farm Picnic on Saturday, the state’s premier political event.

While McConnell attempted to speak, the crowd drowned out the Senate minority leader with chants to “retire.”

You can barely hear a word McConnell attempts to say.

WATCH:

The crowd’s treatment of the decades-long Uniparty member exemplifies how fed up Americans are with their public servants in Washington D.C.

They don’t represent the interests of the American people.

Politicians extort money from hard-working Americans and send it to foreign nations, pushing wars and destruction.

Yet, American infrastructure crumbles.

McConnell, and swamp members like him, deserve to hear the anger of Americans whenever they go in public.

The relentless heckling of McConnell went on for five minutes.

WATCH:

The chants for McConnell, the longest-serving U.S. senator for Kentucky in history, to retire come after he appeared to freeze at a press conference.

Mitch McConnell “BOT” Freezes Up, Shuts Down Mid-Sentence?

NBC News reports:

McConnell spoke at the annual event amid intensified concerns over his health. He appeared to freeze for 19 seconds during a weekly Republican leadership news conference last month, went silent and was walked away by Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso, a top McConnell deputy.

He walked back to the news conference a few minutes later. Asked about his health, he said he was fine. Asked whether he can do his job, he said: “Yeah.” His office said he felt lightheaded and stepped away briefly.

McConnell swiftly sought to tamp down speculation about his future and vowed to serve his full term as Republican leader after the health incident. His two-year term as Senate GOP leader ends in early January 2025. He became the longest-serving Senate party leader in U.S. history earlier this year.

The health incident added to a series of others this year, which began in March when he was hospitalized with a concussion and a minor rib fracture and was discharged days later before he entered rehab. He didn’t return to the Senate, however, until mid-April. Earlier this month, he tripped and fell at a Washington, D.C., airport, NBC News reported. He was not seriously injured.

Our friends at WLTReport investigated the replacement process for McConnell if he’s forced to retire from office before his term ends.
