Trump’s boastings don’t prove anything
Donald Trump says he would have ran into the building at the latest school shooting even if he did not have a gun. Talk is cheap. When he had the opportunity to fight for his country he sought five deferments to avoid serving. Trump described his promiscuous lifestyle and his avoidance of sexually transmitted disease during this time as his “… personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.” (1997 Howard Stern interview). He derided John McCain saying “I like people who were not captured.”(Frank Luntz interview, 2016 Iowa Family Leadership Summit) There is no doubt in my mind that Donald Trump would be the first person to flee a dangerous situation and would not care who he trampled in the process.
