Donald Trump, who dodged the Vietnam draft with five deferments for bone spurs and who has never been detected doing a single act of bravery in his entire life, told a group of governors that if he had been at the school where the mass shooting took place, he would have rushed in and subdued the killer even if he didn’t have a weapon.
And if you believe that, I have an Air Force One stuffed with covfefe to sell you. Seriously, what person on the entire planet could possibly believe that? Even Sean Hannity, who spends his entire day with lips affixed gleefully upon The Donald’s ass, couldn’t believe that. But it’s just another indication of what I’ve noted many times about Trump — the man wears his psychological shortcomings like a billboard slung around his neck. He craves so badly to be viewed as the hero, the savior in every situation, that he makes claims like that are, quite literally, unbelievable. The only room I can see him running into is the dressing room at a Miss USA pageant.
President Trump claimed Monday that he would have rushed into the Florida high school during the mass shooting earlier this month there that killed 17 people, and he called it “disgusting” that an officer assigned to the school didn’t enter the building while the attack was underway.
“I really believe I’d run in, even if I didn’t have a weapon,” Trump said during a White House meeting with governors from across the country, adding that he thinks the governors assembled also would have rushed into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. “You never know until you’re tested,” he added.
He might as well have said that he truly believes that if he were there, he would declare really loudly that he was now bulletproof, and it would magically become so. Meanwhile, this comes to mind:
