Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said during an interview over the weekend that he has “completely recovered” from some health issues that he recently experienced.

McConnell made the remarks during a Sunday interview with CBS News’s Margaret Brennan on “Face The Nation,” which primarily focused on foreign policy issues involving wars overseas.

“People wonder about your health, how are you feeling?” Brennan asked. “How are you doing?”

The questions came after McConnell fell a couple of times earlier this year, hitting his head during one fall. In subsequent incidents, McConnell froze up while speaking to the media after becoming dehydrated and lightheaded.

“I’m fine. I’m completely recovered, and I’m just fine,” he answered.

“You and your office felt the need to share and disclose some of the details about your health because of some of these public incidents,” Brennan responded. “And the doctor here said there was no evidence of Parkinson’s disease or a stroke or a seizure.”

“And I wonder, is there anything the public should know that wasn’t disclosed?” she asked.

McConnell answered, “I’m in good shape, completely recovered and back on the job.”

Brennan continued to press on the matter, asking, “Does that mean that you think you are able to continue serving, and you want to continue serving here at a time when we are talking about incredible dysfunction in Washington?”

“I think we ought to be talking about what we were talking about earlier, rather than my health,” McConnell said.
