President Donald Trump said Monday that he would have charged into a Florida school during the shooting there earlier this month even if he were unarmed.
“I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon,” Trump told governors meeting at the White House to discuss school safety.
Trump slammed as “frankly, disgusting” the armed school guard who remained outside the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that left 17 students and teachers dead. The president also criticized several other deputies who failed to immediately enter the school, telling the governors that the law enforcement officers “weren’t exactly Medal of Honor winners.”
“The way they performed was really a disgrace,” he said.
Trump compared the skill involved in shooting guns to that required for the game of golf, where “some people can make a four-foot putt every time, and some people can’t even take the club back.”
Note that Sen. Tammy Duckworth, who lost both legs in combat, now refers to him as “Cadet Bone Spurs” for the multiple deferments from Vietnam service he got because of supposed bone spurs in his heels. Those bone spurs are gone now, which is why he would now be able to run in to save those students.
As for arming teachers with golf clubs, who knows?
