There was a lot of love shown for Rep. Steve Scalise Thursday night at the congressional baseball game. Recent word is that Scalise recently came out another surgery and remains in critical condition.
Update on Rep. Scalise, per source with knowledge of his condition: he out of surgery and remains in critical condition.

Hopefully Scalise will recover soon and be able to see a replay of the game, with the first pitch thrown out by wounded Capitol Police Officer David Bailey before a crowd of 25,000 people.

Wow, a packed baseball stadium giving a standing ovation to a bigoted homophobe like Scalise? Didn’t any of these people click on Fusion’s click-bait to end all click-bait headline earlier today?

"Delicious irony." LOVE this. ❤

Well, there goes the whole “unity” narrative. Don’t forget, though; it’s Trump whose responsible for this coarsening of public discourse:
Any debate about civility in politics begins with Trump. No one has degraded discourse more, while embracing the fringe. Fact, not opinion.
— Glenn Thrush (@GlennThrush) June 15, 2017
No one has degraded discourse more, but Fusion gave it their very best shot. Of course, Fusion’s evidence that Scalise is a bigot comes from a since discredited report by a lefty blogger whose piece was picked up by the Washington Post and other mainstream outlets and kept alive by the SPLC and it’s “Hatewatch” file.
Again, Fusion is Gawker without reporters. This is an embarrassment to the industry. https://t.co/1LbQ4N5jJq

When was he a Duke fan? When he spoke 2 hours before Duke in a conference that was completely seperate from the one Duke attended?

As a close friend of Steve's I find this tweet beyond disgusting.

As a human being, I too, find this beyond disgusting.

@Fusion delights in being utterly despicable. Truly the fusion of grotesque and inhuman.

Maybe Fusion wrote another piece about President Trump visiting the hospital Wednesday night, but this headline was enough for one day, thanks.
WH official: President and First Lady brought 2 bouquets of flowers – one for Cap Police officer Crystal Griner, one for Jennifer Scalise
— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) June 15, 2017
If anyone would like to learn more about Griner and her heroic actions Wednesday, the Baltimore Sun has an excellent and highly recommended piece. Fusion’s writers might want to read this, but we doubt it:
