President Trump wasn’t messing around when he told a gathering of governors on Monday that if he’d been in Parkland, Florida last week, he’d have ran into that school and battled the shooter.
Predictably, the liberal media tore into the president for what was likely not a literal statement, but an effort to encourage Americans not to fear danger, especially when it comes to keeping our children safe.
“I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon,” Trump was quoted as saying.
He was taking a jab at Florida deputies who failed to rush right into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after arriving at the scene of a known active shooting.
The long minutes that police officers waited before engaging the shooter cost at least several more children their lives.
Needless to say, liberals across the Internet, and especially in the mainstream media, have been busy ridiculing Trump for saying such a thing.
It’s just another indication of how far this country has veered from our former “no fear” attitude.
The president is trying inspire courage, and all they can do is mock him.
