Trump says Scalise 'took a bullet' for all of us

Trump says Scalise 'took a bullet' for all of us

The annual charity game continued as scheduled despite House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R., La.) and four others being hospitalized after James Hodgkinson opened fire at a Republican team practice.

Mr Scalise remains in a critical condition after undergoing several operations, though word came from the hospital during the game that he had improved.

The lawmaker's vital signs have stabilized and doctors have controlled his internal bleeding, Director of Trauma Dr. Jack Sava said.

"I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in. he was as critical as you can be when he came in".

Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation".

The yearbook contained other kinds of errors, Dyer wrote - including the omission of certain students and class officers' images. Dyer said neither she nor the school's administrators were involved in the adjustment of the photos.

In addition to Scalise, a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist were shot on Wednesday morning when a man opened fire as the Republican lawmakers practiced for the game in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Va.

Although he remains in critical condition, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise stands a good chance for an "excellent" recovery after being shot at a charity baseball practice outside Washington this week.

The game at Nationals Park carried on a century-old bipartisan ritual, this one tinged with worry about Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise and the players' determination to answer the attack by coming together in sport. But injuries like Scalise's are more complicated, with multiple organ systems involved, any of which could still lead to serious disability or death.

Although Scalise was able to talk on the ballfield, by the time he was transported by helicopter to the hospital, he was in shock. The hospital also said it will continue to provide periodical updates.

Scalise is sedated, but the husband and father of two has been able to respond to his doctors and family. Not lost on him was that he left the GOP team's practice Wednesday morning just as the shooter was arriving, in enough time to tell the gunmen the Republican team was out in the park but missing, by minutes, the horrifying episode that followed.

Trump Blasts Media Report on Obstruction of Justice
President Donald Trump says he is being investigated for firing FBI Director James Comey by the man who told him to do it. Comey's removal will provide us the opportunity to do that on a cooperative, bipartisan basis", according to the letter.

"I am not surprised at all", Mount Hebron media specialist Scott Robinson said.

Hospital officials said it is hard to predict how long the congressman will be in the hospital, but that he is expected to be able to walk and hopefully run after a period of rehabilitation. That social media and letters to the editor showed Hodgkinson to be an ardent liberal who hated congressional Republicans gave the attacks an very bad partisan overtone and inevitably led Rep. Peter King, R-Iowa, Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh and others to blame it on the left's harsh criticism of President Trump. They also wore Capitol Police hats to remember the two officers who were shot.

"So we all owe Steve a big, big thank you", the president said.

An injured police officer has been hailed after preventing a potential massacre in the baseball practice shooting that left top United States politician Steve Scalise in a critical condition.
