Following the tragic school shooting on Valentine’s Day in Parkland, Florida which left 17 people dead, most presidents would focus on trying to heal a divided and grieving nation. And then there’s Donald Trump, who instead looks at the shooting as just another opportunity to promote his brand.
Trump, was nicknamed by Iraqi War veteran and double amputee Rep. Tammy Ducksworth (D-ILL) as “Cadet Bone Spurs,” referencing his multiple deferments during the Vietnam war one of which was for mysterious “bone spurs,” which seems to have magically healed after the war.
Despite dodging the draft, Trump recently insisted that he would have gone in unarmed to take out Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz, had he been there.
“I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon,” Trump said during a meeting with the nation’s governors, according to Associated Press reporter Zeke Miller.
Trump rips Fla. Deputies for not going into school. "I really believe I'd run in there even if I didn't have a weapon."

Trump’s remark was connected to his broader criticism of the Flordia deputies who failed to stop Cruz while he was on his shooting spree, noting on Monday that the deputies “weren’t exactly Medal of Honor winners.”
Last week Trump slammed the school’s assigned deputy who was present during the shooting for his inaction, stating that he did “a very poor job” of protecting the kids.
Now I know what you’re thinking, but you’re wrong.
Trump is a legit badass. I mean who could forget that time he bitch slapped a bald eagle for not behaving during a campaign ad? Don’t believe me? Check it out.
Yeah, baby! Trump would have ripped the parkland shooter apart limb from limb had he been there. Unfortunately, the shooting probably took place during his “executive time” in which he watches Fox News, tweets, and looks out the window wondering dreamily what his man crush Vladimir Putin’s doing at the moment (probably something cool and manly with his shirt off, right Donny?).
So don’t worry America, you’re in safe hands. I mean, what’s the worst that could happen with a stud like Trump in the White House watching your six?
