Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he has no health issues of concern — despite sporting bruises and bandages on his hands this week.

The 78-year-old Kentucky senator dodged questions about his health from reporters in the Capitol Thursday, CNN reported.

Asked whether he had any health issues, McConnell answered, “of course not,” and then didn’t respond when asked if he was being treated by a doctor.

Later, McConnell — who is up for re-election — said there were “no concerns” when asked by the network about the bruises on his hands and whether he had any other health issues.

His aide also declined to provide details when asked multiple times about the Republican’s health.

McConnell has been busy working all week, including calling for a “show” vote on extended small-business Paycheck Protection Program loans on Tuesday and warring with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Thursday following the vote to advance Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination.

Last year, McConnell, who is married to US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, suffered a fractured shoulder in a fall at his Kentucky home. He underwent triple bypass heart surgery in 2003.
