      Does Mitch have ‘Purple Glove Syndrome’?

       

      snip-

       

      The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, told reporters on Capitol Hill he had no health concerns, after questions were raised about pictures showing severe bruising on his hands and some bruising around his mouth. Asked on Thursday if “there anything going on we should know about?”, the Kentucky Republican said: “Of course not.” McConnell answered a follow-up question by saying he had no concerns, and did not answer a question about whether he was seeing a doctor.

       

      No bruising was discernible on McConnell’s hands during his debate against Senate Democratic challenger Amy McGrath, in Lexington on 12 October. McConnell, 78, is well-placed to beat McGrath, if in a tighter race than he would usually expect, for a seventh six-year term. By the end of it, he would be 84, going on 85. That would not be unusual in the Senate, a body where members often sit into their 80s and sometimes beyond. The Republican has presided over the confirmation of huge numbers of federal judges nominated by Donald Trump, among them two supreme court justices and almost certainly a third, Amy Coney Barrett, who will receive a floor vote on Monday.

       

      That he has done so after successfully stymying the Obama administration on judicial appointments – up to denying even a hearing to Merrick Garland, the supreme court nominee to replace the late justice Antonin Scalia, over 10 months in 2016 – makes McConnell something of a bogeyman to Democrats and progressives.Democrats are by most counts well-placed to retake the Senate on 3 November. McConnell has brushed off questions about his health before, for instance earlier this month when other senators, members of the White House staff and Donald Trump himself tested positive for the coronavirus. “Have I ever been tested? Yes,” the majority leader said then, about Covid-19. “But I’m not going to answer questions about when.”

       

      Regarding McConnell’s hands, the factchecking website Snopes produced a short article which confirmed the photos were real. “Why McConnell’s hands exhibit purplish bruises and bandages has prompted much speculation,” the article said, “with guesses ranging from claims that the senator has contracted Covid-19 to the possibility that he has a vascular disease and/or is undergoing dialysis and is taking blood thinners. “As neither McConnell nor any of his representatives have publicly commented on his condition, a definitive answer is not yet available.”

      It has gotten progressively worse in the last few years.

      developed that sort of extreme bruising from the cancer drug Gleevec (I assume other chemo drugs do similar things). Low white cell count – he eventually developed pancytopenia; edema (which you can also see in McConnell, I think) – and that horrific easy bleeding under the skin. A host of other issues, of course. His lips developed the same purplish bruising, too.

      I’m not a medical person, but Mitch looks like something is going very, very wrong.

      He’s been the GOP’s executioner for 4 decades, with the same dispassionate smug facial expression, as if he has no conscience to account for the millions who have suffered and died due to his intransigence.

      McConnnell can hide his guilt no longer.

      where the axe is buried in his face.

      But I can still hope he’s in constant extreme discomfort…

      If he can avoid death until the confirmation is over, he will have fulfilled his life’s purpose. I think he may be just about that close. Turning purple at the extremities is serious.

      He’s in a tight race to get re-elected, so I don’t know what he’s thinking. A sympathy vote is possible, but some swing voters might not care to elect someone who looks like they won’t finish out their term of office.

      @babel17 He’ll blow the Trump Democrat out of the water, just like the Democratic Party wanted.

      That would be Mark of the Beast Syndrome, where his legislative history is beginning to appear on his body.  I’m sure @Satan is behind this, and is coloring him to match his condo overlooking the Lake of Fire.

      @gzeush Surely not. @satan You’re not seriously considering that, are you? I was thinking more of a tent made out of garbage bags.

      so he’ll be perfectly happy in the swamp next to the Lake of Fire. No condo for him, but he’s got a shell, so that’s like carrying your house with you, right?

      You can’t control what illnesses you get. If you could, no one would ever be sick.  Illness comes to everyone no matter who or what you are.

      Mitch hiding his very serious condition is just so stupid. It will come out even if he goes to his grave keeping mum about this illness. He’s a fool if he thinks otherwise.

      sick people do not make good decisions. That’s one reason you don’t go to work when ill. Yet here he is, making decisions that will affect our country in perpetuity.
