Thomas Gunderson, the Las Vegas shooting victim who was shot in the leg and still stood up to greet President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, gave his first TV interview Thursday and revealed more details about the hospital meeting.
Speaking to Sean Hannity from his hospital bed, Gunderson was adamant he could tell the president truly cared.
I don't care what anybody has to say to me, he cared. He wanted to listen to me and shake my hand and thank me and was just so awesome, he said. And Melania was so sweet. To me, it felt like they genuinely cared about the people here and what happened.
When asked about why he insisted on standing for the president even after Trump told him not to get up, Gunderson said, "I just wanted to show them respect.
Gunderson also relived some of the horror of the fateful night when a gunman unleashed a hail of gunfire on concertgoers in Las Vegas, killing 59 people, including himself, and injuring hundreds more.
He thought the gunshots were malfunctioning speakers or firecrackers at first. But once the pandemonium broke out, he realized what was happening.
Watch Gundersons interview on Hannity via Fox News below.
We have a Citizen President and First Lady, of the citizens, by the citizens, FOR the citizens.
Best quip: Mr. Gunderson stood in respect for the President. There are NFL players who won’t stand in respect for our nation.
No Editors at IJR? *Rolleyes*
However, our President and FLOTUS continue to make me PROUD. :)
Zer0 would have had a podium and teleprompters set up prior to his grand entrance.
As I wrote on the related article you posted earlier, Trump is showing himself the embodiment of what John Adams prayed over the White House when it first opened in 1801, that it would always be occupied by Presidents who were “honest and wise.”
He knows how to read the fireplace mantle Adams had that engraved on, unlike Obama who probably had it draped over.
BTTT for your remark.
Post of the day in my opinion.
KC - please put me on your Melania ping list. Thanks, FRiend.
Of Course my good FRiend! :D
Do we have a miracle here? No. I think it’s just an illiterate reporter. Reporter sez, 59 people were killed, including the patient the Trumps visited, and hundreds more were wounded. Proofreading is your friend, if done properly.
‘I pray Heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this House, and all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof’
This brought tears to my eyes the first time I visited the white House. Clinton was President at the time.....as I said, it brought tears to my eyes.
Under Clinton and Obama, tears would be the least of my concerns. I’d wonder how to clean the vomit off the walls.
Somewhere in the article or the comments was the word Citizen President. I can’t think of the last time we had one of those since Washington.
Perhaps Eisenhower to an extent.
Is that room part of the public tour?
If only the lying msm would show a tenth of the respect he showed.
That room was part of the tour, but it has been a long time since I was there. I dont know if it is still on the tour.
