Mitch McConnell Hospitalized After Falling at a D.C. Hotel

After tripping at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in Washington D.C. Wednesday night, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (81) was hospitalized. According to his spokesperson:

“This evening, Leader McConnell tripped at a local hotel during a private dinner. He has been admitted to the hospital where he is receiving treatment,” David Popp, his spokesman, said in a statement.


Vito Maggiolo, a spokesman for the District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department, said Thursday morning that an “adult male” was transported from the Waldorf Astoria at 9:17 p.m. Wednesday, and the call was dispatched after a report of a fall at the hotel. The person was transported to a local hospital and “notes did not indicate patient condition,” he said.

McConnell suffered a shoulder fracture after he tripped and fell at his home in Kentucky. The GOP leader underwent surgery for the fracture in 2019.
