Huckabee Sanders: Trump Would Take ‘Courageous Action’ In An Active Shooter Situation (VIDEO)

Earlier today, Donald Trump, a 71-year-old former reality show star who received five military deferments to avoid serving, one of them because his feet hurt, said that he would have run into the Florida high school without a gun in order to stop the gunman from carrying out our country’s latest mass shooting. That’s right, Trump would grab a couple of Big Macs then bravely run into an active shooting situation even though he’s afraid of stairs.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders faced questions from CNN’s Jim Acosta about that ludicrous remark and that went down about as well as you’d expect.

“When the president said earlier today that he would have run into the school, was he suggesting that he could have saved the day?” Acosta asked Huckabee Sanders.

“I think he was just stating that as a leader he would have stepped in and hopefully been able to help as a number of the individuals that were in the school, the coach and other adults and even a lot of the students stepped up and helped protect other students,” she said. “I think the point he was making is that he would have wanted to have played a role in that as well.”

“Is he trained in firing a weapon?” Acosta asked. “Is he trained in using a handgun or a firearm of some sort?”

“I don’t think that was the point he was making,” Sanders said, adding that Trump would have wanted to take “courageous action” regardless of whether or not he had a gun in the event of a mass shooting.



Just last year, while world leaders took a walk together in Taormina, Sicily during the Group of 7 (G7) summit, Trump chose to ride in a golf cart, but we’re supposed to believe that Donnie Two Scoops would bravely storm the school in order to save lives. Sure, whatever you say, Sarah.
