This is a guy who knows how to work both sides of the aisle. He may not always align with our political views but when it matters, he knows. Bono is known as the frontman for U2 and is known for his charitable work all around the world.
He decided to give a shout out to Scalise and the others injured by the congressional shooter last week at his concert.
Last night, U2 played a concert at FedEx Field, home of the Washington Redskins. During the show, iconic lead singer Bono — known for his progressive politics, abiding love of America, and open-minded ideological alliances — expressed solidarity with House Republican Whip Steve Scalise and the other victims of last week’s shooting at the hands of a left-wing extremist. He said he was “so grateful” that all of the victims had survived the atrocity, drawing cheers from the crowd.
During a Maryland stop on U2’s The Joshua Tree Tour on Tuesday, frontman Bono gave a shout out to Scalise and four others injured in the shooting. “You’ve been through some troubling days here with the shooting in Alexandria,” Bono said. “We are so glad that Congressman Scalise and his comrades made it through. So grateful…We hold them up as love holds us all up,” he added. Last week and just days after the shooting, Bono dedicated the song “One Tree Hill” to Scalise and former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords who survived a 2011 assassination attempt.
The band’s famous front man also went out of his way to welcome music lovers of all political stripes to the event…….
