Lawrence O'Donnell went into the archives and dispelled any notion that America's commander-in-chief would as he said, go into the school with or without a gun to rescue the kids. It turns out Trump was not shy about detailing how he handles bloody stressful situations, not very well at all.
How sensitive or concerned a person is Donald Trump?

O'Donnell did not have to dig too far to illustrate the caliber of a president that we have even as he tries to show he cares for anyone but himself. The Donald himself relayed a story of his callousness.
Trump appeared on the Howard Stern show where he told a story of an older man falling off the stage. The president hosted Red Cross party at Mar-a-Lago. He said many wealthy people attended. An 80-year-old man fell off the stage and began bleeding profusely. All the wealthy patrons pretty much did nothing to help.
"So what happens is, this guy falls off, right on his face, hits his head," Trump said. "And I thought he died. And you know what I did? I said, 'Oh my god, that's disgusting,' and turned away. You know, he was right in front of me. I didn't want to touch him. ... He is bleeding all over the place. I felt terrible. You know, beautiful marble floor, didn't look so good -- it changed colors, became very red. And you have this poor guy, 80 years old, laying on the floor unconscious, and all of the rich people are turning away. 'Oh my God, this is terrible!'"
Is this the guy that is going to run into a school armed or unarmed to save our children. Lest we forget this is the same guy who got deferments from serving the country in which he is now commander-in-chief.
Good job Lawrence O'Donnell for showing the emperor has no clothes.
