Shot in the leg or not, I will stand: Amazing moment patriotic Las Vegas victim struggles to stand to meet Trump (Full Title) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A California man shot in the leg during Sunday nights shooting in Las Vegas refused to allow his wound to prevent him from standing when President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump entered his hospital room.
and what a touching moment it was.
Thomas Gunderson was attending the concert at the Route 91 Harvest Festival when Stephen Paddock began firing on the crowd from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, according to the Daily Mail.
The president and first lady were in Las Vegas on Wednesday to visit with victims and first responders of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
The incredible moment a patriotic Gunderson struggled to his feet was captured on video, first when Mrs. Trump entered his room and again when the president came in.
Hi Thomas. How are you? the first lady is heard asking the wounded man as he rises to his feet. No, no, dont get up.
Trump soon enters the enters the room and Gunderson rises again, not able to remain standing when he greeted the first lady.
Hey, this guy looks tough to me, Trump can be heard saying as he gives Gunderson a warm handshake.
Gunderson was reportedly running toward Mandalay Bay when he was shot in his leg.

the media will now scour is background to see if he owes back taxes.
If you listen to the audio of this clip carefully, President Trump came into the room a brief time after the First Lady came in because he was outside getting an update on the guy’s condition before he came in.
Nice! Good memory and association.
Our country is full of patriots, but it is the dissenters and haters that always get all of the fake media news coverage...
my eyes are watering....must be allergies..
WOW Thanks for sharing.
No chit :(
America is full of guys like this (wouldn’t know it from our Enemedia, though). They’re quietly working, raising their kids, paying their bills and minding their own business. So far...
WOW. Good man
Screen went blurry. Thanks mandaladon.
Those targeted in this hat were not Obama/Hillary voting, pink hat wearing, Anthem kneeling losers. They were real Americans, with normal values, as this American demonstrated.
BTTTT. More manhood in his wounded leg than those pack of disrespectful NFL/NBA jack@sses.
Even more impressive than his standing - from the article.
“Gunderson was reportedly running toward Mandalay Bay when he was shot in his leg.”
Running to the sound of the guns.
He’s going to be interviewed by Hannity tonight.
He is from Newport Beach, CA.
I wonder if he related to Vicki Gunderson of The Real Housewives of OC fame?
Just watched video of it! Truly inspirational.
A simple gesture but done with true reverence for the office. Great guy.
And President and Mrs. Trump are really good people. Big hearts that obviously love this country and all the people.
Just saw him on Hannity, who went to his hospital room. They ha an interesting conversation. I thought this guy would make a good TV show host.
