President  Donald Trump  let loose at a Tuesday Republican fundraiser with an impromptu roast of GOP lawmakers, which included making a quip that his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, wouldn't "cry her eyes out" if he was shot.

Politico's Melanie Zanona reported that the event , which took place at Trump Hotel in Washington, DC, Trump commended House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana for his bravery and toughness a little over two years after being shot.

Scalise, Capitol Police officers, a congressional aide, and a lobbyist,  were wounded by a gunman who opened fire on them at a Republican Congressional baseball team practice in Alexandria, Virginia in June of 2017.Because Scalise is a member of House leadership and has a Capitol Police detail with him at all times, two officers were able to quickly apprehend the shooter, who died exchanging gunfire with the police.


But Scalise was badly wounded,  suffering multiple broken bones and internal damage . While he has since recovered and went back to work on Capitol Hill a few months later, he still walks with a cane.

Politico said that after joking that he wouldn't suggest getting gravely shot as a strategy for losing weight, Trump recalled how Scalise's wife Jennifer "cried her eyes out when I met her at the hospital that fateful day … I mean not many wives would react that way to tragedy, I know mine wouldn't."

Shortly after the shooting,  The New York Times reported  that Trump and the First Lady visited Scalise at the hospital and brought a bouquet of flowers to Scalise and his wife.

Politico reported that at the fundraiser, Trump also poked some friendly fun at other Republican lawmakers and pollsters in attendance.

Trump said, "that lil guy packs more punch than I thought," of Rep. Chuck Fleischmann of Tennessee's fundraising performance and joked that Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah — one of Trump's most prominent critics in the Senate's Republican caucus — is "the worst name in politics."

"I know a guy who looks like you," Trump also quipped at Rep. Greg Pence of Indiana, the brother of Vice President Mike Pence. "How did you get that good of a seat in here ya cheap-o?"

Poking fun? Calling Romney the worst name in politics and another guy a cheap-o? Is this what passes for GOP humor these days?

You've got that right!

I'll never grave dance, but sometimes I applaud how the universe can hand out karma. 

I find it such a sad state of our democracy that we are even here in modernity. This is all of Trump's own making though via Putins stamp of approval. His narcissism, idiocy and authoritarian criminal mob mindset was always leading to impeachment. He thinks he's above the law. He's finding out, he's not.  Dems had no choice but to "vindicate the Constitution." --Nancy Pelosi

You'll not find a more fitting description for this charade. I cannot imagine a more unready, unschooled, or unskilled individual tasked to fulfill even the most basic of requirements demanded of the post.

After the Mueller report proved somewhat inconclusive, Trump had a chance to reset. Instead, the day after Mueller testified to Congress Trump asked Ukraine to help him smear his opponent Biden.  Some people cant stand success.

I'll tell you, my yearly charity funds just got redirected. I'll be spending all my resources helping every Democrat in taking down the GOP traitors amongst us instead across the nation. It was a decision I didn't take lightly, as I support programs directed for helping children. But there's nothing more worthy this year than protecting their futures and our democracy. Blue wave!

Calling Romney the worst name in politics

Is being very, very polite.

There are a great number of other names and or terms I can think of to describe Romney.  I can assure you, none of them are flattering.

I'll surmise you voted for Obama, so we're even.

Yeah, but I don't think he's a scumbag. And I really don't care what you think of him. Like I said, I wouldn't vote for someone I thought was a scumbag. Principles are important to me

You've been wrong before.

Principles are important to me

And me too.   I simply had to vote for the lesser of two evils, both of which were scumbags.  Had I not voted, it would have meant that much more of an opportunity of the worse scumbag to win.

5.3.7  Trout Giggles  replied to  XDm9mm @5.3.6    2 weeks ago

But you put your principles aside during the 2012 election. You admitted it.

And I am entitled to an opinion.

Do you have a problem understanding what I said?

My principles made me vote for the lesser of two evils, or scumbags, as the case may be.  Not voting was essentially voting FOR the scumbag I detested more.

Hardly, I put my principles aside to try to keep the worst scumbag out.

See how that works?

As I said, NOT voting would have compromised my principles as it would have benefited the worst of the two.

I realize that Trump says many things, some non-sensical and others non-sensical too.

But, did he really say that?   More importantly, why did he say that?

Because he has the sensitivity of a bag of marbles.
