Steve Scalise (R) - SHOT


Republican Congressman, Steve Scalise, the Whip in the House responsible for leading the effort to generate support for Trump’s agenda, has just been shot at a baseball practice.

Reportedly, the perp went up to him and inquired if today’s practice session being held by Repubs or Dems - he was informed it was Repubs on the practice field. He ended up shooting Scalise before being taken into custody.

Scalise was shot in the hip.

This is just breaking, so details could change.


Update: It is reported a rifle was used with multiple clips - approx. 50 rounds fired. Obviously pre-planned. Representative Williams is also being reported as shot along with some aides.

The hate being generated by the Left toward this administration has now spilled over to a ball field in Virginia.


Heard on a caller that was on the field that he was asking if they were a Republican or a Democrat and he shot the Republicans…


Gun totin liberals? What sorcery is this?


Statement from President Trump copied and pasted from my daily White House e-mail:

As you all know, shortly after 7:00 a.m. this morning, a gunman opened fire on members of Congress and their staffs as they were practicing for tomorrow’s annual charity baseball game.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the crime, and the assailant has now died from his injuries. The FBI is leading the investigation and will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.

Congressman Steve Scalise, a member of House leadership, was shot and badly wounded, and is now in stable condition at the hospital, along with two very courageous Capitol Police officers. At least two others were also wounded.

Many lives would have been lost if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol Police officers who took down the gunman despite sustaining gunshot wounds during a very, very brutal assault.

Melania and I are grateful for their heroism and praying for the swift recovery of all victims.

Congressman Scalise is a friend, and a very good friend. He’s a patriot and he’s a fighter. He will recover from this assault. And, Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers not only of the entire city behind you, but of an entire nation and, frankly, the entire world. America is praying for you and America is praying for all of the victims of this terrible shooting.

I spoke with Steve’s wife, Jennifer, and I pledged to her our full and absolute support – anything she needs. We are with her and with the entire Scalise family.

I have also spoken with Chief Matthew Verderosa – he’s doing a fantastic job – of the Capitol Police to express our sympathies for his wounded officers and to express my admiration for their courage. Our brave Capitol Police perform a challenging job with incredible skill, and their sacrifice makes democracy possible.

We also commend the brave first responders from Alexandria Police, Fire and Rescue who rushed to the scene. Everyone on that field is a public servant – our courageous police, our congressional aides who work so tirelessly behind the scenes with enormous devotion, and our dedicated members of Congress who represent our people.

We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because, above all, they love our country.

We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans, that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of safety and peace, and that we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good.

Please take a moment today to cherish those you love, and always remember those who serve and keep us safe. God bless them all, God bless you, and God Bless America. Thank you.


My Fellow Republicans,
I have the honor to report that I was not injured in the Congressional Baseball attack. As I was assuming my USUAL position in left field (as heard in that memorable phrase “He’s out in left field”) and I stand far enough back that only a sniper rifle could get me, I was spared.
I would like to thank the LEFT for sending a WHITE MENACE to shoot at Congress…it is refreshing to leave the RACE CARD in the ON DECK CIRCLE!
Of course, my personal secretary, bodyguard, and sex therapist, Boom-Boom Larue, the “Baton Rouge Bombshell”, was ready to jump in and wrestle the perp with her well known “NYMPHO HOLD” , which is outlawed in wrestling and porn venues worldwide. She mistook a mild-mannered Congressman from Tennessee as the perp…we understand he is in guarded condition, but may make a full recovery, with plenty of rest and oysters.
I will be happy to see young Steve out of the hospital soon…
