Popular vote loser Donald Trump: Billionaire, Family Man, Champion of the Poor, Stable Genius…
Add to the list: School shooting hero.
Yes, our esteemed President claimed that he would have ran into the Parkland, Florida school that was the site of one of the nation’s worst mass shootings in history, whether he was armed or not.
In reality, we all know the guy is full of sh**. If Trump was around an active shooter situation like this, he would’ve cowered in a corner somewhere and later cited bone spurs.
Scott Dworkin with the Democratic Coalition points out…
Bustle points out:
Four of the deferments were because of college, while one was due to a bone spurs in his heel — something Trump himself doesn’t seem to fully remember. In a recent interview with the New York Times, for instance, he said the bone spurs were “temporary,” “minor,” and had no real impact on him. Yet he’s also said that the bone spurs made it difficult for him to walk “long-term.” In other instances, he’s declared that he’s in perfect health, and his longtime physician stated Trump has had “no significant medical problems” in over 40 years. They both seem to have forgotten that one problem supposedly so detrimental that it kept him from serving.
Simultaneously, Trump has said that it was ultimately getting lucky with a high draft lottery number that kept him from the war. However, he had already been deferred for medical reasons for over a year when the draft lottery started, making the lottery irrelevant for him.
Then, oh yes, there are the comments he made regarding Senator John McCain — a prisoner of war during Vietnam. He said that McCain was not a war hero, and that Trump liked “people who weren’t captured.” And let’s not forget the audio clip from the ’90s in which Trump told radio host Howard Stern that avoiding STDs while dating is his “personal Vietnam.”
This is a giant step backwards for our nation. And that sentence could apply to this announcement or this entire presidency. History will not look back kindly on this man, his family, his administration, or his voters/supporters.
