Bernie Sanders Says He Is ‘Sickened’ By Shooter Of Republican Steve Scalise

6

Steve Scalise, the house majority whip, was shot in the hip and an aide, Zach Barth, was also injured.

Shortly before the shooting Hodgkinson – who reportedly volunteered for Bernie Sanders’ campaign – asked Ron DeSantis, a Florida congressman, whether the politicians were Republicans or Democrats.

“I have just been informed that the alleged shooter at the Republican baseball practice is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign,” Sanders said in a statement delivered on the Senate floor.

“I am sickened by this despicable act. Let me be as clear as I can be: Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms,” he added.
“My hopes and prayers are that Representative Scalise, congressional staff and the Capitol Police Officers who were wounded make a quick and full recovery,” he said.
“I also want to thank the Capitol Police for their heroic actions to prevent further harm.”

  1. This guy is full of garbage. He is part of the cabal stoking hatred against the president and is now trying to distance himself from the consequences of his actions.

  2. I don’t trust this bum as far as I can throw him! This millionaire was quiet when Kathy Griffin beheaded a caricature of Republican President, Donald Trump. The hypocrite lives in an all WHITE State. Remember Howard Dean being asked that question by Al Sharpton?
