In a recent private fund raising event, Trump jokingly said that his wife Melania won’t cry if he is shot.
The dinner for this event was held at Trump’s hotel in Washington DC which was intended for House of Republicans.
In his lengthy speech which divulged into a roast of GOP members, as well as his own wife, during his speech, Trump used the near-fatal shooting of House Minority Whip Steve Scalise in 2017 as fodder for a dig at Melania. Trump reportedly started by noting how tough Scalise was but warned against getting shot as a weight-loss strategy.
Trump then said Scalise’s wife “cried her eyes out when I met her at the hospital that fateful day… I mean not many wives would react that way to tragedy. I know mine wouldn’t.”
