Trump: I Would Have Rushed into Parkland Shooting Unarmed, Twitter Pounces
Trump Makes Absurd Claim About School Shooting And Twitter Brings The Laughs
If there is something to brag about, there is no doubt Republican Donald Trump will do just that. It doesn’t matter how ridiculous the claim he is making truly seems.
And when it comes to the controversy surrounding how law enforcement handled the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Trump found a way to brag about himself yet again. And in the most absurdly ridiculous manner possible.
I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon.
He’s referring to officers standing outside the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school building where the shooter was and waiting to go in.
This is coming from the same guy who took 5 rich kid deferments to stay out of the Vietnam War, and once told Howard Stern a story of how he squeamishly turned away from a bleeding man at his club who had fallen and hurt his head.
I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s disgusting,’ and I turned away. I couldn’t–you know, he was right in front of me, and I turned away. I didn’t want to touch him.
Needless to say, the news of this comment lit up Twitter. The reactions poured in making fun of the claim.

He can't run. He (allegedly) has deferment-worthy bone spurs.

A President that can't take the heat from reporters isn't likely going to be one rushing into a shooting. pic.twitter.com/emlWBaddpV

Dude can't even work past 3 PM or miss his tee time for a national tragedy! This is the most laughable lie I've ever heard, even from him.

He could barely stand being in the hospital w/ the victims for more than a couple minutes. He couldn't stand face to face w student survivors of the attack who were leading the movement for change. I doubt he would walk into a shopping mall with out a phalanx of Secret Service.

It’s no surprise Donald Trump would make such a preposterous claim about his nonexistent courage. He tried to lie his way around dodging the draft before everyone found out the truth. And no one is going to buy this malarkey no matter how much he tries to sell it.
