Bono is on #TeamScalise.
During a concert in Maryland on Tuesday night, the U2 frontman honored Rep. Steve Scalise and other victims of the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, last week.
The Twitter account of the House majority whip tweeted thanks to the musician and posted a video of Bono onstage, telling the D.C.-area crowd:
“You’ve been through some troubling days here with the shooting in Alexandria. 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.”
“Thanks Bono & @U2,” read the tweet from Scalise’s account, which was signed by “#TeamScalise.”
