YEAH, RIGHT! Cowardly Trump Says He Would Run Into Parkland School ‘Even if I Didn’t Have a Weapon’

Some things just don’t need any commentary. And this statement by Donald Trump is one of them. While castigating the Parkland deputy who failed to enter Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when it was under attack by a man with an assault weapon, Trump unleashed this Olympic-grade stupidity:

TRUMP: “I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon.”

Okay, I can’t help myself: Who the f*ck does he think he’s kidding? By “there” Trump must mean the ice cream freezer at Mar-a-Lago. Because Cadet Bonespurs would run (or waddle) away from any hint of danger. He got FIVE draft deferments during the Vietnam War. He has never shown the slightest tendency to do anything on behalf of anyone other than himself, even when there was no danger involved. The only thing I can see Trump running into a high school for would be to sexually assault the young girls.

By the way, If Trump did run unarmed into the scene of an active shooter with an AR-15, it wouldn’t have helped anyone. Unless you count the nation that would have been rid of a treasonous president. This statement underscores the idiocy of Trump’s proposal to arm teachers. The only thing that would accomplish is that the teachers would be the first fatalities.

Trump’s laughably lame macho bluster is just sickening. Does he really think anyone with a functioning brain believes this bullshit? He has been recorded on video scurrying away from peaceful protesters at his rallies. He stands in front of adoring crowds in auditoriums yammering about how he would like to punch a protester (who is a hundred yards away and surrounded by security) in the mouth. He is a cartoon parody of a bully who is, in fact, a shivering coward. And his big mouth is the only weapon he will ever fire, and even that is shooting blanks.

If Trump wants to prove his manhood by running into a school under siege by a mass murderer, he has my complete support and encouragement. Hell, he has my support to run into a gang of colicky two-year olds, where he would fit right in. Trump is too afraid to hold a press conference with the “fake” news (it’s been over a year). And he’s mortified at the thought of sitting across the table from special counsel Robert Mueller. He’s a weak, sniveling, spineless, worm, and his ludicrous claim that he would run into a firefight is just more proof that he’s mentally deranged.

Perjury Trap? Despite ‘One of the Best Memories in the World’ Trump Fears Mueller Interview

The investigation into Donald Trump’s unsavory connections to Russia continues to expose new vulnerabilities for the President and his associates. Special counsel Robert Mueller and his team just issued a new set of indictments for Trump campaign honchos Paul Manafort and Rick Gates. And as the probe proceeds, the noose around Trump’s neck gets tighter.

Donald Trump Lies

Consequently, Trump’s lawyers are taking up defensive positions to avoid any further erosion of his flimsy claims of innocence. The peak events in these sort of investigations are the interviews with the primary targets. Trump, of course, is the Godfather of this crime family, and his testimony is highly anticipated. But that doesn’t mean it will necessarily come to pass. His team of attorneys are furiously fighting to assure that he either does not testify, or the that the inquiry is so limited as to be a farce.

The argument being made by Team Trump is that it might constitute a “perjury trap” if Trump is required to answer “detailed questions involving dates and times.” Unlike any other witness in a criminal investigation, Trump thinks he should be allowed to respond with vagaries and approximations. That would be like a bank robber offering the alibi that “I was probably out of town sometime during that month.” It’s been reported that Trump’s…

“…lawyers’ considerations included whether Mueller’s questions would be limited in scope and whether they avoid testing Trump’s memory such that they would effectively constitute a potential perjury trap.”

A perjury trap is a real thing that prosecutors employ, sometimes unfairly, to back uncooperative witnesses into a corner. But there is an easy and infallible way to avoid a perjury trap: Tell the truth. Unfortunately for Trump, that may not as easy as it sounds. He is a well known pathological liar who cannot suppress his compulsion for telling obvious falsehoods. This is something that even his attorneys have worried about. The New York Times reported that…

“His lawyers are concerned that the president, who has a history of making false statements and contradicting himself, could be charged with lying to investigators.”

You might wonder why these lawyers would have sush concerns. After all, Trump himself has said that he has “one of the best memories in the world.” So how could he get anything wrong during an interview that’s this important? Perhaps they also heard him say that he doesn’t recall having said that (This is why satire is dead). Or maybe they are planning an insanity defense. They might argue that the president of the United States is suffering from a form of Anti-Truth Tourettes Syndrome that causes him to involuntarily blurt out lies at any random moment. That would not only serve as a potential legal defense, but it would explain the last two years of utter bullshit spewing from Trump’s deceitful mouth.
