President Donald Trump and wife Melania made a surprise visit to the hospital Wednesday night where Rep. Steve Scalise is in critical condition and whose extensive wounds were detailed in a release from the hospital.
Just left hospital. Rep. Steve Scalise, one of the truly great people, is in very tough shape – but he is a real fighter. Pray for Steve!

Keep praying people. Looks like Scalise is in bad shape. And you'll never meet a kinder human being in your life. A genuine family man.

We thought the visit was a nice gesture, but what do we know?
Trump visit to Scalise=odd: 1) excessive detail of condition 2) claim Trump can't attend game for security reasons 3) Trump's personal doc.
