Trump: Melania Wouldn’t Cry For Me If I Ever Got Shot

Politico reports:

House Republicans who raked in the most money for a private fundraising event at Trump Hotel on Tuesday night got a little extra reward: a roast from President Donald Trump.

The president — unscripted, unfiltered and totally in his element — went on an extended riff about a wide range of topics, from his recent White House meeting with “nasty Nancy” Pelosi and “lap dog” Chuck Schumer to bragging about the raid on Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The president reflected on the shooting of House Minority Whip Steve Scalise a few years ago and remarked how tough the Louisiana Republican is – and Trump quipped he wouldn’t recommend getting shot as a weight loss plan. Trump also said Scalise’s wife “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.”
