Yesterday was an extremely dark day for American politics, as the radical left finally realized their implied destiny, firing the first literal shots of their supposed “resistance”.
During practice for a charity baseball game, several GOP congressmen were targeted by lunatic James T. Hodgkninson, a former Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer and radical leftist with a digital trail of hateful rhetoric and liberal ideology behind him. In the melee, several innocent people were shot by the disillusioned democrat, including Louisiana representative Steve Scalise.
Scalise, who remains hospitalized at this time, has undergone numerous surgical procedures over the course of the last 24+ hours, with doctors cautiously updating his condition as they are able. The last official word from the medical professionals attending to Scalise have remained steadfast in their classification of “critical” for the congressman.
Given the severity of the event, President Donald Trump felt it prudent to make a visit himself to assess the progress that Rep. Scalise is making, and, in atypical Trump fashion, the President did not have good news for Americans.
“President Donald Trump told reporters that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s condition had worsened since surgery after he was shot and wounded at a congressional baseball practice on Wednesday.
“’It’s been much more difficult than people even thought at the time,’ Trump said solemnly at the White House. ‘It’s been — he’s in some trouble. He’s a great fighter, and he’s going to be okay, we hope.’
“The president said he visited Scalise at the hospital and told the family that the entire country was praying for him.
“He commented that Scalise’s tragedy may have brought some unity to the partisan climate in the country.
“’Steve, in his own way, may have brought some unity to our long-divided country,’ Trump said. ‘I have a feeling that Steve has made a great sacrifice, but there could be some unity being brought to our great country.’”
Trump’s required calm on the subject of the nation’s divided nature is certainly being constructed purposefully, as conservatives around the country are preparing to stand vigilant in the face of further radical leftist attacks.
Hodgkinson, who by all accounts was active in liberal extremist groups on Facebook, had often referred to his hope for violence against the President and the republicans. While the warning signs seemed obvious in hindsight, Hodgkinson was able to target and attack these GOP congressman without so much as a single bit of surveillance slowing him down, even though he was openly calling for his colleagues to team up with him and “destroy” the conservatives of this nation.
