Cadet Bone Spurs To The Rescue!

The Greatest Courage of All Is Hypothetical Courage.

Trump’s criticism of first responders to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting has now reached new levels of macho-strutting peacock-chest puffing comic absurdity. Trump declared that:

“I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon.”

Yes, Mr. five questionable draft deferments, that included never to be seen again bone spurs, really said this. That’s hutzpah to the eleventy-billion power. He’s believing memes like this one his delusional pack of personality cultists generated during the election.

You aren’t supposed to fall for your own propaganda, but he has.

Fortunately, there is a way that we can see how Trump really responded when faced with a mild threat from an unarmed eagle.

That is not the face of a man who is going to square off against a lunatic with an AR-15. This man literally can’t even stare down the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mascot, which believe it or not, is an eagle. They are the “Eagles” and Trump can’t even handle one. This is the school’s official logo.

Real courage comes from within, but you can’t just pull it out of your ass.
