“Yeah, I shot him. Horrible, just horrible, but what could I do? The press didn’t believe me when I said I could shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters. In all honesty I don’t feel too bad because I’m told he was a reporter and his grandmother was involved in the Lincoln assassination, which is a horrible thing. That’s what I hear anyway, which is very sad if it’s true, which I’m told it is. So sad.”
Albert T. Pott was admitted to New York – Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan where he is listed in stable condition with a gunshot wound to the head. Doctor Peter Hollbrook, Chief Neurosurgeon at New York-Presbyterian, said that while the bullet passed through Pott’s skull it did not do significant damage.
“Fortunately, Mr. Pott is a Trump supporter. Otherwise this could have been tragic.” Speaking from his hospital bed, Pott told reporters he forgives Trump.
“Are you kidding me? Today is the greatest day of my life! But just think, if I were dead right now you’d be talking to a true American hero! I guess that’s too much to ask for. At least I’ll always have this hole in my head to remind me of why I support Mr. Trump! God Bless Donald Trump for shooting me and making America great again!”
Within minutes of the shooting millions of Trump supporters tweeted their approval as #PottShot blew up Twitter.
