“For the past 15 weeks, every gathering of House Republican leaders has had one thing in common: an empty chair, marking the absence of Majority Whip Steve Scalise.
It was a sign of respect for the boisterous Louisianan and a reminder of the quiet anguish that has beset Capitol Hill since a lone gunman, targeting GOP lawmakers practicing in Virginia for a charity baseball game, wounded Scalise and four others on June 14.
That heartache evaporated Thursday in the great roar that greeted Scalise as he made a surprise return to a packed House chamber and addressed his colleagues for the first time since the shooting.
“I’m definitely a living example that miracles really do happen,” he said.
The rifle rounds fired by James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old unemployed Illinois home inspector who opposed President Trump, did grievous damage to Scalise. As he played second base, one bullet entered his hip and traveled across his body, tearing apart muscle and bone and causing so much blood loss that doctors would later describe Scalise as being at “imminent risk of death” when he arrived in their care.”
