Upon hearing your absurd claim you would’ve run into Parkland high school in the middle of a mass shooting, I just had to develop a short test to make sure you know what the hell you are talking about.
Instructions: Read the definition and guess the person.
Coward: a person who lacks the courage to do or endure dangerous or unpleasant things.
Now besides the Sheriff’s Deputy you disparaged, possibly wrongly, does this definition remind you of anyone? Nothing? Are you sure? Here, let me give you a few hints:
- This person avoided the Vietnam draft due to bone spurs, and later claimed they were a temporary problem and not that big of a deal.
- This person watched an 80-year old man bleed after falling during a reception only to comment: “I thought he was dead…I turned away, I didn’t want to touch him…beautiful marble floor changed color…”
- This person said we should provide a path to citizenship for the 800,000 children affected by DACA yet insists on using it at a bargaining piece for hardline immigration reform, an action a Nobel Peace Prize recipient called “cruel.”
- Oh, and this person won’t even share an umbrella with his wife, or his 11-year old son.
Nothing yet? This person is also well-described by this word:
Narcissism: extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one’s own talents and a craving for admiration.
Well, keep thinking on it. I’m sure you’ll come up with the answer. Hint: It’s HUUUGE.
