On June 14th, 2017 one of our Congressman was attacked by bullets by a Bernie supporter, James T. Hodgkinson, who was killed that day. He was shot in the hip. He has spent three and half months in recovery.
Majority Whip Rep Scalise (R-LA) is now back at work and said as he addressed Congress just moments ago, “You have no idea how good it feels to be back here at work in the PEOPLES HOUSE”. Scalise described the events of that chilling and fateful day. He said that he began to pray while injured on baseball field and said that the capitol police were true angels on the that day. He also exclaimed “It starts with GOD“. A standing ovation occurred when Scalise introduced the Capitol police and said “David you saved my life. Crystal couldn’t be here with us today. The Capitol police saved my life and the lives of others that day.”
Let’s not forget Scalise is back after this vicious attack on our Congressmen. Here is two word announcement on Twitter with his wife, Jennifer!
