Irish rocker Bono took time during a recent concert performance to say a prayer for Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), who was shot last week during a practice for the annual bipartisan congressional baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia.
“We are so grateful that Congressman Scalise and his comrades made it through. So grateful.” the U2 frontman is heard saying on a video posted online Tuesday by Scalise.
“We hold him up as love holds us all up,” Bono said before performing the band’s next song.
James T. Hodgkinson of Illinois fired dozens of rounds at some 45 Republican members of Congress last Wednesday morning in Alexandria, Virginia, severely wounding Scalise, two congressional aides, and two Capital Police officers.
