Attn NFL Brats: Vegas Victim Stands on Wounded Leg to Greet President Trump

It’s just simple respect.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited victims of the Las Vegas massacre in their hospital rooms. One truly inspirational moment was captured on video and shared on the Facebook page of Thomas Dunderson.

Gunderson was at the country music festival Sunday night when bullets rained down from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay. One of those bullets lodged into his right leg. As he explained on Facebook, he tried his best to save others but ended up being saved himself:

But despite his injury, Gunderson wasn’t about to meet the president lying down. The first one into his room was the first lady. Seeing him struggle, she urged him not to stand, but he did so anyway. And when Trump saw him, he said, “Hey, this guy looks tough to me.”

Gunderson posted video from the occasion:

We hope the NFL whiners who can’t seem to muster an ounce of the same respect for a country that has offered them the freedom to make millions running a ball up and down a field watched this video closely. They could learn a lot from this "average" fellow.

Gunderson’s Facebook page happens to be filled with complaints about the NFL players protests:

As he has had time to reflect from his hospital bed, Gunderson realized that for all the talk about identity politics from the Left, race and gender played no role at all during the massacre. He saw Americans coming together despite the media's attempt to further divide the nation. It's obvious Gunderson wouldn't wish being a victim of something like this, but a little perspective from the elitest leftists couldn't hurt.
