I'm weirded out by your Tweet!

Since yesterday’s shooting at a practice congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia, Donald Trump has sent out two tweets about GOP Rep. Steve Scalise, who was among those injured:
Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, a true friend and patriot, was badly injured but will fully recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with him.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 14, 2017
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!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2017
Apparently that’s two tweets too many for HuffPost senior politics editor Sam Stein:
am i the only one a bit weirded out by Trump giving us daily updates on Scalise's health?

Yes, indeed, I think you are . . .

Yep you're alone with that.

Considering he got shot yesterday I'm gonna go with yes.
— Silas Smith (@SiFitheguySmith) June 15, 2017
Dude it happened yesterday. That's literally two updates on his health ??
— Jamie Lono (@JamieLono) June 15, 2017
Yes – it happened yesterday. Seriously man
— Josh Adair (@joshadair) June 15, 2017
It's only been one day, so that's not exactly a pattern. Also, Congresspeople aren't regularly, you know, SHOT.
— Abstract Machine (@AbstractMachina) June 15, 2017
Seriously??? Why would this bother you?
— SusieQ4USA (@127bama) June 15, 2017
Yes. Why in the world does this bother you?

Allow him to explain:
it's not a big deal. it's just… odd
— Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) June 15, 2017
What’s odd about it?
*Trump concerned for nearly-murdered friend
I can see why you're 'weirded out'… pic.twitter.com/sKMV0kZK90

Steve Scalise is a personal friend of Trump's and is the Majority Whip in the House–a lot of people are concerned. Why aren't you?
— Patricia Zell (@patriciazell) June 15, 2017
And why would u be weirded out by that??? Normal human empathy escape u somehow??? What a sick thing to say
— sedsays (@sedsays) June 15, 2017
You are a senior politics editor & you're weirded out? I'd think you'd be interested in status of a US congressman who was targeted & shot.
— Gail Larson (@gaillarson) June 15, 2017
I'd be weirded out if he didn't. Seriously, what the hell is wrong with people.

Can you find something real to complain about. The man was shot yesterday! What's wrong with you?
— Mary Schmid (@MarySchmid2) June 15, 2017
A congressman was almost assassinated, what the fuck is wrong with you? Fucking dickhead.
— Swig (@OldRowSwig) June 15, 2017
Good news, Sam: You’re apparently not alone. Not quite, anyway:
Sam is right-it's odd. More importantly, most people expect health updates from an authoritative medical source-not unreliable Trump.

— Fran Caron (@FCaron9) June 15, 2017
No. It's truly creepy.

Trying to prove how compassionate they are before they take away the health insurance of 24 million people
— Laurie McFadden (@lauriemcf) June 15, 2017
So … other people are “weirded out” that Trump apparently cares about a congressman’s welfare. Misery really does love company.
I'm sure you're not, and you should all get help.
