Steve Scalise Opens Up on Baseball Shooting Injuries: Kind of Like ‘Rebuilding Humpty Dumpty’

Congressman Steve Scalise is breaking his silence about the horrific injuries he experienced during the GOP Congressional Baseball shooting back in June.

CBS has previewed a 60 Minutes interview Scalise gave to Norah O’Donnell, his first TV interview since he and his colleagues came under attack. The House Majority Whip was joined by his wife Jennifer, and he provided new insight into how much internal damage had to be fixed while he spent the last several months at the hospital.

“My femur was shattered. The hip and pelvis had serious damage where the bullet went through and, you know, did some damage to areas that had to be shored up with steel plates and then they did a phenomenal job of rebuilding, you know, kind of the, rebuilding Humpty Dumpty. I mean, there were, there was a lot of damage inside that had to get fixed.”

The full interview will air on Sunday at 7:30 P.M. EST.
