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.
