In response to President Donald Trump’s recent assertion that he would have taken immediate action had he been present outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas when the mass shooting occurred earlier this month in Florida, liberals laughed it up.
Trump in his head: “I really believe I’d run in there, even if I didn't have a weapon. And I think most of the people in this room would've done that, too.”

Trump said if he had been present during the Parkland shooting, he would have “run in there.” All of late night begs to differ. https://t.co/AqDkSPxfcj

The following story originally published in the New York Daily News (and republished in The Philadelphia Enquirer) roughly 27 years ago suggests The Donald isn’t the coward these leftists perceive him as:
Call it The Donald to The Rescue.
When he saw “a big guy with a big bat” bashing another fellow, Donald Trump did what any self-respecting billionaire would do: He ordered his driver to pull over. …
Witnesses said Trump, with Marla Maples tugging at his arm to try to stop him, leaped from his black stretch limousine Monday evening during the Manhattan assault.
“Someone in the car looked over and said, ‘Gee, look at that, it’s a mugging,’ ” Trump said. “I said to my driver to stop the car because it was brutal-looking.”
Trump was at first reluctant to discuss his daredevil deed, but then he warmed to the task.
“The guy with the bat looked at me, and I said, “Look, you’ve gotta stop this. Put down the bat,”‘ Trump said. “I guess he recognized me because he said, ‘Mr. Trump, I didn’t do anything wrong.’ I said, ‘How could you not do anything wrong when you’re whacking a guy with a bat?’ Then he ran away.”
Trump said the incident occurred at 8 p.m. as he, Maples and another couple were heading toward the Lincoln Tunnel on their way to the Meadowlands in New Jersey for a Paula Abdul concert.
Kathleen Romeo, a 16-year-old student at St. Michael’s Academy in Manhattan, said cries of “There’s Trump!” went through the crowd of onlookers when the erstwhile deal maker emerged from his limousine in front of a Smiler’s deli.
“A lot of people were surprised that he got out to see what was happening,” Romeo said, adding that the bat-wielder ran off just before Trump actually appeared, and that Trump, “just looked around and went back into his limo.”
But another witness, who asked not to be identified, supported Trump’s tale.
“All of a sudden, a big long limousine pulls up on an angle, and Donald Trump pops out with the blond, too,” the witness said. “There was a guy with a bat, hitting a guy over the head, and Trump yelled, ‘Put that bat down. What are you doing?’ The guy dropped the bat, came over and started talking to him.”
Trump said the bat-man delivered at least “five or six good whacks” before he interceded. Trump said he left the site only after he saw a man who appeared to be a doctor treating the victim and heard that an ambulance was on its way.
Granted, because the story contains conflicting witnesses accounts, it proves very little. Still, if you want to shut a shit-talking liberal up for at least a liberal bit, throw this in their face and watch their reaction.

Further, remind them that unlike former President Barack Obama, our president never backs down from bullies and thugs!
