“US President Donald Trump has said he would have run in to the Florida high school where 17 people were shot dead this month even if he was not armed.
`I really believe I`d run in there even if I didn`t have a weapon,` Mr Trump told a group of state governors gathered at the White House.”
Even if Trump possessed the valor of a Navy SEAL he`s not going to run into a school and confront an active shooter. If he jogs more than a couple of seconds he`s out of breath; he is so obese that he can`t run to the bathroom before soiling his diapers.
The five-time draft-dodger, derisively known as Captain Bone Spurs, is too much of a coward to confront a child brandishing a water gun let alone a madman toting an AR-15.
We don`t need false bravado from our commander-in-chief, we need action. Trump doesn`t have the courage to defy the NRA, and demand thorough background checks every time a citizen buys a gun including online and at gun shows. Trump doesn`t have the backbone to demand that Congress pass legislation banning all AR-15 type rifles.
The teenage survivors of the Parkland massacre are the true heroes, they have the courage to speak truth to power and demand sensible gun control.
