With dozens of NFL millionaires crying about how oppressed they are, America has grown fed up with the liberal snowflakes in this country. They refuse to stand for their country, even though it’s given them everything—yet one man, even after being shot in the leg, defied this trend.
We saw the deadliest mass shooting in all of US history occur on Sunday evening, and the damage has been catastrophic. 58 were murdered in cold blood, and hundreds more were injured in the ISIS-inspired shooting spree committed by Stephen Paddock.
President Trump was quickly notified about the event, and condemned it as being “pure evil” over social media and television—and unlike Obama and Hillary, he didn’t use it as an opportunity to push for gun regulation. Instead, he used it as a chance to visit these wounded men and women, and brighten up their day.
One man, Thomas Gunderson, refused to follow the sick NFL trend of disrespecting our country, and even when in a hospital bed after being shot, stood up to shake Melania’s hand and then President Trump’s hand. Take a nice long look, liberals, because this is what true patriotism looks like.
The Hill reports:
A man who was injured in the mass shooting in Las Vegas insisted on standing to meet President Trump and first lady Melania despite his injuries.
Thomas Gunderson, one of the hundreds injured in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, shared a video of him standing to meet the Trumps during their visit to meet victims of the shooting Wednesday.
Gunderson posted the video of the interaction on his personal Facebook page.
“I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand!” he proclaimed. “There may be plenty of issues in this country, but I will always respect my country, my president, and my flag,” Gunderson wrote on his Facebook page.
“Shot in the leg or not,” he added, “I will stand to show my President the respect he deserves!” It’s not hard to see why this video has gone absolutely viral. Patriots are sick and tired of entitled crybaby liberals throwing temper tantrums about how they’re being oppressed and targeted, despite them living in the greatest country in the world.
As Melania walked in, she urged him not to stand up. “Don’t get up,” she said—but when President Trump came in, he was overcome with love for his country and for his president, so much so that he just had to stand on his wounded leg.
“Don’t get up,” Melania said in the video as Gunderson stood.
“Are you ok?” she asked after shaking his hand.
“Hey this guy looks tough to me,” Trump said as he entered Gunderson’s hospital room. He shook Gunderson’s hand and gave him a pat on the back.
Fifty-nine people were killed and hundreds of others were injured in the mass shooting at a country music festival Sunday night.
The Trumps traveled to Las Vegas Wednesday, where they met with first responders to the shooting and victims.
This is the type of patriotism that lives within the hearts of our citizens. CNN, MSNBC, and the other mainstream liberal news stations want to convince you that the love for this country has died…but mark my words, there are millions of men, women, and children whose blood runs hot with love for this country, and we will not be silenced.
