Donald Trump has a permit to carry a gun.
“Nobody knows that,” he told a gathering of the National Rifle Association on Friday.
Well actually, it’s pretty hard to not know since he brings it up all the time.
“Boy, would I surprise somebody if they hit Trump,” he told the audience.
People, have we ever had a president who spoke about himself in the third person? Something to consider. But more important, what would that surprise entail? Was Trump trying to say that he’d quickly draw his concealed weapon and take the gunman out of circulation?
“If I wasn’t — if I wasn’t surrounded by, like the largest group of Secret Service people,” he began, and it did sound as if we were about to get a description of his shooting prowess.
But then Trump veered off to demand a standing ovation for police officers and never did get back to the original point.
