Majority whip Steve Scalise has been shot. Police responded and the gunman has been killed. Shot in the hip, Scalise had surgery and is expected to make a recovery. A tourniquet was applied using a belt. One staffer was also shot.
The shooter was identified as James Hodgkinson.
One has to ask, is the Democrat and Left rhetoric of showing killings of Trump did they incite to violence this act. Has the RHETORIC on CNN, MSNBC gone too far?
The act happened in Alexandria Virginia. Even though he had a full security detail consisting of two guards, the softball diamond presented an open area.
Hodgkinson is a member of a number of anti-Republican groups on Facebook, including one called “Terminate the Republican Party.”
