HIDE CAPTION

SHOW CAPTION

The day before his injury, McConnell attended the Fancy Farm picnic – Kentucky's most important political event – in which he and many other political leaders of the state previously speeches in dull style held a loud crowd.

77-year-old McConnell has been working from his injury home, his staff said. His recovery comes while the Congress is in the August break.

The operation will prevent the Senator from attending a Kentucky Republican dinner in Lexington on Saturday.

McConnell is an important ally of Congress for President Donald Trump, who will run next year for another term in Kentucky.
