Seems like all these party leads have a slip and fall when the heat is on them: Harry Reid, and now Mitch McConnell, all within 5 or so years.

You can feel the glee at a fellow American being victimized by a crime.
Trumpers are scum.

Moscow Mitch got drunk and tripped over his illegal immigrant maid.

Probably drank too many Moscow Mules today while reading the news about all the mass shootings he's responsible for allowing to happen.

He slipped on the blood of innocents while rushing to get an NRA/Russia bribe.

Moscow Mitch doesn't drink Russian Mules, he devours them until his masters DNA is dripping off his turtle like chin!

The same anti-American hangdowns that curse Trump calling Baltimore rat infested, are wishing death to the turtle?

Moscow Mitch felt the heat of his connections with Russian oligarchs and was threatening to sever his ties to them so they had to rough him up to put him back in line. I have no sympathy whatsoever for that piece of filth.

Must have not gotten into his shell fast enough.

Can you die from a fractured shoulder? Asking for 320 million friends.

Glad nobody tried to break into his house at 3 am--they would have walked all over our nation's most lovable turtle...

Fake news!

Turtles don't have no shoulders.

At least McConnell has good healthcare and a job that will continue to pay him through his recovery. Something he's opposed to for others.

Too bad he didn't break his damn neck.

To echo our fearless quart (he can't be called a liter): "too bad"

Too bad he didn't break his hip. Then maybe he could catch pneumonia and die of natural causes. And yes, that would make me happy. To hell with Moscow Mitch.

Better karma would be mconnell getting shot by a gunman who didn't need to pass a background check because mcconnell blocked the bill.

It's a good thing he has quality health insurance paid for by taxpayers!

I sure hope his opponent in the coming Senate campaign doesn't use his health and frailty against him, because that would be uncivil. (/s)

Does Russia provide additional supplemental health care to Republicans on the take?

I'm sure it is just a coincidence this happened immediately after he was pelted with "Moscow Mitch" chants at his recent town meeting.
Entirely.
Coincidental.

I wonder if he got worked over by the Mob like Reid did.

Moscow Mitch runs the mob. He isn't likely to be taken out by it.

All these posts and nobody has sympathy for the devil.

What a loser.

Has he recovered from his shell shock yet?
