Sooo, President Donald Trump would have rushed into the school in Florida, even without a gun. This heretofore unseen streak of personal bravery must have inspired his 1968 rush to his rich daddy’s doctor’s office for a heel-spurs medical draft deferment letter, which allowed him to avoid guys with guns in Vietnam. Sure is a lot easier to talk bravery, courage and patriotism than to personally demonstrate it.
