Our president recently asserted at a meeting of the country's governors that he would have rushed in to save the children during the Parkland massacre, even if he was unarmed. Really? Was it bravery that enabled him to get several deferments so he wouldn't have to serve in our armed forces? Would he have rushed in to save Muslims, immigrants, Hispanics or people of color? Would he have rushed in to save anyone who disagreed with him?
It's easy to be brave when it's just boasting, with nothing at risk. Want to be brave Mr. President? Support a ban on assault weapons and stand up to the NRA. That will be bravery.
