On Wednesday Republican Representative Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, and two Capitol Police were shot during baseball practice in Alexandria.
Scalise was shot in the hip and tried to drag himself off the field after he was hit.
The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson was a Bernie supporter who was obsessed with Trump-Russia conspiracy theories. He is now dead.
Hodgkinson asked lawmakers, “Are those Republicans or Democrats?” before gunning down Rep. Scalise and his security detail.
Despite the shooting of Republicans the annual Congressional Baseball Game was held last night in Washington DC.
Before the game players from both teams went on the field and kneeled in prayer.
It was a special moment.
Too bad CNN had their own story line–
The anti-Trump channel said only DEMOCRATS prayed on the field.

The lie stood all night.
CNN finally changed their headline Friday morning.
