Scalise Still “Critical”, Will Require More Surgeries; Trump Urges “Pray For Steve”

While it appears some have already moved on from this morning’s devastating actions in Virginia…

Some are still concerned and so MedStar Washington Hospital Center released a statement on the condition of the Majority Whip (via Rep. Scalise’s Twitter account)

“Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding.

He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center.

He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion.  

His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations. We will provide periodic updates.”

President Trump has just got back from visiting Majority Whip Scalise and tweeted his thoughts…
