Meyers: I Will Be Pulling for the GOP in Their Annual Baseball Game with Dems

‘You know, we have a lot of fun at this show at Congress’ expense and it seems only fair they should be able to have fun at times’

EXCERPT:

MEYERS: “Now, you’ve all probably heard there was a shooting in Alexandria, Virginia this morning. Members of the GOP were attacked on a baseball field while practicing for a bipartisan charity game against the Democrats. Congressman Steve Scalise as well as lobbyist Matt Mika are still in critical condition and our thoughts are with them and their families and we wish them both a full and a speedy recovery. We would also like to commend the members of the Capitol Police for their quick and heroic action. You know, we have a lot of fun at this show at Congress’ expense and it seems only fair they should be able to have fun at times, which is what this annual baseball game is. I’m happy to say it will be going on as scheduled tomorrow, which is great news. And I don’t often say this here on our show, but I will be pulling for the GOP. So good luck to all of you."
