While the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL was taking place, an armed deputy stayed outside the school instead of running in to confront the attacker. President Trump has now claimed he would have run in, armed or not.

On Monday’s late night shows, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, and Trevor Noah mocked Trump for claiming he would run in to confront the school shooter. And they all had jokes about “running.”

“O.K. There’s a lot in there that I doubt, but the part I really don’t believe is that he can run,” Colbert joked on the Late Show.

“Look, sir, we already know how you react to combat situations. You got five deferments from Vietnam. What are you gonna do, run in there and stab ’em with your bone spurs?”

“I gotta say, I find it hard to believe Trump would voluntarily run inside a place of education,” Seth Meyers said, on Late Night. “The only way you would run inside is if a reporter asked you a question outside.”

“Yo, when Trump ran for president, that was the first time he ran in his entire life,” Noah said on The Daily Show. “Really? Trump cares so much about helping people that he’d jump into the middle of a school shooting with nothing but his fun-sized fists?”
