The Time Trump Watched an Elderly Man Bleeding Out on the Floor and Did Nothing to Help Him
This story is old news from way back from the yesteryear of 2015 where we learn of how 45 would have reacted to situations in which blood was present. It is worth repeating today as Cadet Bonespurs talks about charging into the school valiantly unarmed to face down his beloved AR-15.
TRUMP: "I really believe I'd run in there even if I didn't have a weapon."
Marlow Stern reported for the Dailybeast:
Trump, a notorious germaphobe, is discussing his extreme distaste for blood. The mere sight of it, he says, causes him to recoil in disgust. Perhaps it explains why he accused then Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly of having her period after she asked him a tough question during a presidential debate, or why he sought multiple deferments to dodge the Vietnam War.
“I’m not good for medical. In other words, if you cut your finger and there’s blood pouring out, I’m gone,” he told Stern.
“I was at Mar-a-Lago and we had this incredible ball, the Red Cross Ball, in Palm Beach, Florida. And we had the Marines. And the Marines were there, and it was terrible because all these rich people, they’re there to support the Marines, but they’re really there to get their picture in the Palm Beach Post… so you have all these really rich people, and a man, about 80 years old—very wealthy man, a lot of people didn’t like him—he fell off the stage,” said Trump.
Trump proceeds to explain that it was a $100,000-per-table fundraiser filled with deep-pocketed billionaires, and that the Marines were—for whatever reason—given tables in the very back of the ballroom (“the worst table in the whole place”). Oh, and that he was more preoccupied with his ballroom’s pristine marble floor than the octogenarian bleeding out on it.
So we already know how Cadet Bonespurs reacts when coming face to face with the symbol of American freedom (an eagle) but now can always remember that when faced with a real life example of having a man bleed out in front of him, at his own event, from a fall, that 45 could not stand the very sight of blood. Does this man think there is no blood at school shootings? Maybe for him it’s like TV where they can selectively show a glimpse of a corpse and then he can look away.
“So what happens is, this guy falls off right on his face, hits his head, and I thought he died. And you know what I did? I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s disgusting,’ and I turned away,” said Trump. “I couldn’t, you know, he was right in front of me and I turned away. I didn’t want to touch him… he’s bleeding all over the place, I felt terrible. You know, beautiful marble floor, didn’t look like it.
Yeah Donnie. I believe you’d have run into that school.
The guy who fell recovered in the end. Though I am sure Trump did not help in any way in his recovery.
