He’s such a bloviating idiot. Not only would he not have run into the school, he would most likely grab the nearest student and use them as a human shield.
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 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 also said that armed sheriff’s deputy Scot Peterson, who was on site during the mass shooting there but did not enter, had “choked.” Peterson, who resigned last week after being suspended without pay, pushed back against a wave of criticism for his actions in a Monday statement from his attorney.
