Maybe the next time, God forbid there is a next time, that Joe Biden does a pratfall on the steps of Air Force One, Republicans won’t pounce like vultures. (She said rhetorically; you know that they will.)
There are few details available at this time about Mitch McConnell’s contretemps with gravity.
This is somewhere between Biden (and also Mike Pence) momentarily losing their footing on Air Force One and the time Gerald Ford fell after he deplaned entirely from Air Force One and dropped out of the frame of all the cameras that were rolling. You remember how horrific that press was.
/2 The 81-year old McConnell was at an event at the Waldorf Astoria DC when he fell, according to our sources.
We have no further information on the extent of McConnell’s injuries or his prognosis

McConnell fell at his own home a few years ago and was quite bruised.
This isn't the first time he has fallen. Last time he got pretty bruised up. 😕 pic.twitter.com/8veiiGJXft

He has my sympathy. Falls are things that beset us in our advancing years.
