Despite being shot in a leg during Sunday nights rampage in Las Vegas, Thomas Gunderson found the strength to stand Wednesday when President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited his hospital room.
Hi, Thomas. How are you? No, dont get up. Dont get up, Melania Trump can be heard saying in a video as Gunderson attempts to get out of bed.
The president entered the room shortly afterward and shook Gundersons hand.
Hey, this guy looks tough to me, the president said.
Gunderson credited two off-duty female police officers with saving his life.
He later wrote in a Facebook post: I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand!(continued)

As well it should.
I grew up in that very same country.
How wonderful that our President is taking the time to boost morale and send the well wishes of the American people.
And, our Melania! I grow to love her more every day. What a superb foot soldier she is. Its never about *her*. Its always about the people. Genuine humility from one so beautiful is quite impressive.
Michelle would be busy on one of her extravagant vacations at our expense. Barack would be too preoccupied on the golf course to even *think* about the shooting victims.
Especially since they're almost all white country music fans. Not exactly his demographic.
It’s a remarkable thing to see. Strong, stoic and stubborn.
Determined to pay proper respects to his President and First Lady. Melania is enough on her own to make most men jump out of bed, with all due respect.
Warms your heart. Even those who don’t like Trump would be impressed, although they would never admit it to us.
IN the country every U. S. Citizen still deserves, it still would.
Well, you now live in a country where Disney, Comcast, and Viacom have corrupted the media landscape.
Another reason for the media to say they got what they deserved. Not only are many of them “gun-toting Republicans”, but they don’t hate their own president like they’re supposed to.
The pic at the link of Air Force One in front of the Mandalay Bay...WOW.
This is leadership. Thank you President Trump. Our hearts are hurting as Americans; you are doing such amazing things.
Are you married? She’s no foot soldier :) I like her a lot too.
I would be so nervous and tongue tied if I was sitting in a hospital bed in a flimsy gown and the president of the United States and elegant first lady waltzed into the room lol.
Melania is enough on her own to make most men jump “in” bed...
I miss that country too. I wish it would return....
We can't let them kill us, and then reward them with more unconstitutional gun control like they want, and I would be surprised if the FBI wasn't involved in the Las Vegas shooting to some extent. Is it incompetence and a disregard for the safety of the American people, or something far more sinister? That's why we need serious independent investigations. The treasonous permanent state needs to be exposed and destroyed.
Agreed. The last thing I’d want to be wearing when meeting the president is a hospital gown.
THANK-YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP! God Bless.
I cannot imagine Michael Obama behaving like that - especially to a "white male."
Good luck with getting Jeff Feckless to do anything like that.
You want me to look at crimes committed by Obama and government officials? Well.....
I mean, that will make a lot of waves....lots and lots of waves...and, I might just have to recuse myself, you know, because I am a man of such integrity, honor, pride, and selflessness....and humility....I am SO HUMBLE....so humble
I don't want to do this difficult stuff of holding people accountable, I want to be "Above it All" and talk about fun stuff......

Those stoic Swedes!
This is the kind of people that once made America great. Too bad we do not have 200 million just like him.
