Just over 24 hours after a lone liberal gunman opened fire on a baseball practice for members of Congress yesterday, more bad news from this horrific event is emerging. The president and first lady have just rushed to a D.C. hospital after terrible events have unfolded since the start of what appears to be an “open season” declared on conservatives by terroristic lefties who have lost their minds.
The 66-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter who shot up the baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, sending Lousiana Republican Congressman Steve Scalise to the hospital in critical condition, was said to have hopes of getting to President Donald Trump through his GOP members of Congress. James T. Hodgkinson was shot by Capitol Police and later died from those injuries. While one leftist lunatic, driven to a mission of deadly destruction by his own party has been eliminated, there are more who are sure to follow in his footsteps of liberal martyrdom.
The Hill reports:
“Scalise was one of five people wounded Wednesday morning when a shooter opened fire at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., one day before the annual Congressional Baseball Game for charity.”
“He underwent surgery on Wednesday, but required additional procedures to mend significant internal injuries, including a broken hip and damage to internal organs.”
“President Trump on Wednesday night visited Scalise and his family at MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C. Vice President Pence followed with a visit Thursday morning.”
After their private and emotional visit with House Majority Whip Scalise and his family, in which they came bearing two large bouquets if flowers, the president said that the congressman was “in some trouble,” and offered an encouraging thought saying he’s a “great fighter and he’s going to be OK, we hope.”
“He entered the room, spoke with Scalise’s family and sat by his bedside with Mrs. Trump,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer publicly announced
after the visit, which only accentuated Trump’s status update on Twitter
“Just left hospital. Rep. Steve Scalise, one of the truly great people, is in very tough shape – but he is a real fighter. Pray for Steve!”
The hospital is extremely familiar territory to these two who frequent these often uncomfortable facilities to meet with ill and injured. It’s incredible that the first couple dropped everything to pay this congressman a visit last night rather than just passively sending flowers with a pre-printed note. Each person who works for and with them is clearly important to them and can be seen and felt in the sincere attention they give those who need it most. It’s for this reason, along with completely twisting facts, that makes what CNN did especially sickening hours after the Trumps left the hospital.
“CNN’s Jim Acosta tweeted fake news about President Trump not seeing Congressman Scalise in hospital after yesterday’s shooting, then refused to apologize for it.”
“After reports emerged that Trump had visited Scalise at at MedStar Washington Hospital Center on Wednesday, Acosta tweeted, “WH official on hospital visit: ‘President Trump did not meet with Scalise and did not go into the room where Scalise is being treated’.”
The truth came out almost immediately when another reporter called him out on his blatant lie. Acosta couldn’t fight the facts with his fake news and immediately deleted his disgusting remarks which seemed to only be made in an effort to perpetuate divisiveness.
“This underscores once again that Acosta is a far-left activist posing as an impartial journalist,” InfoWars reported.
It’s this divisiveness that drives lunatic lefties like Hodgkinson to feel that murdering people who have different political beliefs than his is a reasonable reaction. This not only classifies these would-be killers as terrorists but makes them no different than Muslim terrorists who belong the Islamic religion that these degenerates so vehemently defend.
Conservative leaders and the Trump family need our support now more than ever, now that it’s obvious that liberals will go to extremes to impose their will and avenge the loss they suffered in the presidential election.
