Bono expressed kind words to Rep. Steve Scalise and the other victims of the GOP shooting that occurred last week.

On Tuesday night at a U2 concert in Hyattsville, MD, which is located roughly sixteen miles from Alexandria, VA where the shooting took place, the frontman gave a shoutout to the recovering congressman.

“You’ve been through some troubling days with the shooting in Alexandria,” Bono began. “We are so grateful that Congressman Scalise and his comrades made it through. So grateful. We hold them up as love holds us all up.”

The video was shared on Rep. Scalise’s Twitter account.


Scalise is still recovering in the hospital and his condition was recently improved from “critical” to “serious” and is now more responsive.
