GOP House Majority Leader Steve Scalise was shot in the hip earlier on Wednesday, as a gunman using a high powered rifle, later identified as James T. Hodgkinson, started shooting at the GOP team practicing ahead of a charity baseball game at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia. Together with the Congressman, a staffer for Texas Republican Roger Williams was also shot (Zachary Barton), along with two Capitol Police heroic police officers (David Bailey and Krystal Griner).
The latter two were injured during the exchange of fire following the shooting of the congressman and the staffer, which left the perpetrator dead. Steve Scalise is currently in the hospital in stable condition. The cops are also in the hospital, with non life threatening injuries.
President Trump twitted:
“Many lives would’ve been lost if not for the heroic actions of the 2 Capitol police officers.”

Scalise’ shooter was never-Trumper and a Bernie Sanders die hard supporter, a 66 year old man obsessed with MSM conspiracies regarding Trump and Russia. He wrote earlier on social media that:
“Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”
Hodgkinson was a big fan of Rachel Maddow, a left-wing media figure who makes a living by incessantly smearing Donald Trump whilst pushing crazy conspiracy theories about Russia. The left and the news media created and perpetuated this climate of violence against Trump in particular and conservatives in general and now watch them try to scurry away like the cockroaches they all are. This is their fault and it is high time they are forced to take responsibility for their actions.
You can’t keep pushing hate, lies and Russian conspiracy hoaxes and not expect the already fragile socialist leftist to not become completely unhinged and violent. All on the left own this and thank God nobody died except for the shooter.
His Facebook disappeared faster than the body cam footage of the Capitol Hill police investigating Seth Rich’ murder!
