Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he has no health issues of concern — despite sporting bruises and bandages on his hands this week.
The 78-year-old Kentucky senator dodged questions about his health from reporters in the Capitol Thursday, CNN reported.
Asked whether he had any health issues, McConnell answered, “of course not,” and then didn’t respond when asked if he was being treated by a doctor.
Later, McConnell — who is up for re-election — said there were “no concerns” when asked by the network about the bruises on his hands and whether he had any other health issues.
His aide also declined to provide details when asked multiple times about the Republican’s health.
