Scalise Is Still In Critical Condition, But Doctors Are Optimistic

President Donald Trump said Friday that wounded GOP Congressman Steve Scalise "took a bullet for all of us" when he was shot Wednesday morning at a congressional Republican baseball practice.

Among others, Republican Representative Steve King wrote on Twitter that "violence is incited by the leading cultural voices of the Left" and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich cited an "increasing hostility on the left".

The president thanked "members of Congress, their staffs, and baseball fans across the country" for supporting the game.

"There is so much you do that I disagree with", House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, a staunch conservative, told his panel's top Democrat, unwavering liberal Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.

The game went ahead as scheduled Thursday, in an emotional display of bipartisan unity. "We love you." Lewis led a House floor Democratic sit-in a year ago when Republicans refused to consider gun control legislation. Capitol Police Officer Crystal Griner, who was shot in the ankle, is also at Medstar Washington Hospital Center. "ONE FAMILY", proclaimed a sign in the crowd.

Scalise was among five people wounded when a shooter sprayed rifle fire at congressional Republicans practicing on a diamond in suburban Alexandria, Va.

Top US Republican lawmaker Steve Scalise remains hospitalized in critical condition after being shot this week but has improved, his surgeon said Friday as he expressed optimism about the legislator's prospects for recovery. "By playing tonight, you are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence, or assaults on our democracy". Ladies and gentlemen: "let's play ball!"


Both sides depicted the event as a unifying experience.

The bleeding was what put Scalise in the most imminent danger. Scalise was shot Wednesday, June 14, 2017, at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, . "I'm prayerful he will pull through, and I hope he does", he said. "That was humbling in a way".

For now, Scalise remains in critical condition in the hospital's intensive care unit. He was injured by shrapnel during the shooting and used crutches to walk to the mound. He wore a purple boot.

Congressional aide Zack Barth was shot in the calf.

About 13 hours after the shooting on Wednesday, the hospital announced that Scalise had been shot in his left hip by a rifle and that "the bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding", the hospital said in a statement Wednesday. He remained awake and responsive as fellow congressmen ran to his side approximately 10 minutes later.

The charities are the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington, Washington Literacy Center, the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation and, after Wednesday's shooting, the Capitol Police Memorial Fund.
