While the shooting
was happening, an armed deputy stayed outside
the school doing nothing. And that’s heartbreaking. And look, I don’t know why that deputy failed
to enter the school. I mean, personally, I wouldn’t
go into a high school, but period. Yeah. Like, one time
I gave a motivational speech at a high school,
and a bunch of ninth graders called me “Apartheid McDimples.” It was brutal. So I’m never going back. But look, you have to admit, what this deputy did
was inexcusable. He just blew off
the basic purpose of his job. And when people found this out, they didn’t wait four minutes
to go in on him. There’s no one I talk to
that is not disgusted that the local sheriff’s deputy
that was there did not go in and kill
that individual. An armed guard appears to have really, really failed
to do his job. The sheriff has to go.
He has to resign. The deputy’s actions
were unconscionable. Damn, that was harsh–
that was like hearing the white people version
of “(bleep) the Police.” (laughter) And this time,
it’s not… it’s not enough just to deal with law
enforcement’s bad apples, no. Some people want to clean house, starting at the top
with Sheriff Scott Israel. NEWSMAN: More than 70 Republican
state lawmakers on Sunday demanded Florida governor,
Rick Scott, suspend Israel, the same day Scott announced
a state-run investigation into the law enforcement
response to the shooting. Are you really not taking
any responsibility for the multiple red flags that
were brought to the attention of the Broward Sheriff’s Office
about this shooter before the incident,
whether it was people near him, close to him,
calling the police on him… Jake, I could o… Jake,
I could only take responsibility for what I knew about. I exercised my due diligence. I’ve given amazing leadership
to this agency. -“Amazing leadership”?
-I’ve work… Yes, Jake. (laughter) “Amazing leadership”? You could see Jake Tapper
in his mind did a spit take. He was like,
“(blows raspberry) What?” “Amazing leadership”?
I’m sorry, but no. Denzel Washington
in Remember the Titans? That was amazing leadership. -Yeah.
-(laugher, applause) Denzel in Malcolm X? That was amazing leadership. (cheering, applause) Denzel in Coach Carter? That was Samuel L. Jackson.
You’re racist. (laughter) Look… it’s clear that
the deputy didn’t do his job. He was armed,
he was at the school, and he didn’t help. Now, for some people, this shows
exactly why there’s no point in arming teachers. Because if a trained officer
didn’t come to the rescue, then how is Mrs. Flenderson
gonna do any better? But for others, for others,
the deputy failing to go in shows exactly why you need
teachers to be strapped. A lot of us have said
you need to arm teachers, carry and conceal, because you
can’t count on the prevention or that you’re
gonna catch ’em every time. A security guard
doesn’t know the children, doesn’t love the children. This man standing outside of…
the school the other day doesn’t love the children, probably doesn’t know
the children. The teachers love
their children. They love their pupils.
They love their students. So what we need is someone
who loves high school kids and knows their way
around guns. Wait a second.
I know just the guy. -Yeah.
-(laughter) What? The dude needs a job! (applause) Can’t work at the mall.
Come on. Here’s what frustrates me
in this gun violence discussion. People make it seem like
there’s only one problem and only one solution. “It’s the guns.”
“No, it’s the cops.” Maybe it’s both.
Maybe it’s both. Like, there are some problems with more than one factor
to them. You know? Like, it’s, “Yes, she
met someone more attractive, but you’re
also an asshole. Yeah.” So you have to work on both
of those factors, by becoming a nicer person
and by disfiguring your rival. All right? It’s the same
with school shootings. Maybe with better training,
the deputy would have known how to go into the situation while still keeping himself
relatively safe. But maybe with better gun laws, once the deputy
did go into the school, he wouldn’t have to face
a teenager with an AR-15. Yeah. There’s no… -(applause, cheering)
-one solution. There’s no one solution that’ll
solve all mass shootings. Except…
for this one solution. I got to watch
some deputy sheriffs performing this weekend. They weren’t exactly, uh… medal of honor winners,
all right? You know, I really believe– you
don’t know until you’re tested– but I think I… I really
believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon. (audience reacts) I like that
he’s honest enough to say, “Look, I-I haven’t tested this.
Uh… (laughter) “But I think, uh, yeah,
I think I would run in. “Without a weapon, yeah.
Yeah, I think I would run in. I think I would.
I think I would.” To be fair, to be fair, if Donald Trump ran into a
school during a shooting, I do believe he would actually
stop the shooting, yeah. Because imagine
you’re a school shooter and Donald Trump appears
in the hallway, how distracting would that be?
He would just be like, (mimics Trump): “That’s right,
it’s me, Donald Trump. “I don’t have a gun,
but what I do have “is an amazing electoral college
victory. “They said I couldn’t win. “736 college– but I did it,
folks. I did it.
I did it so good.” (normal voice): Like,
eight minutes later, the police show up,
Trump is still talking. The kid is, like, what the hell
is happening here? It would work. (cheers and applause) But, like, but, like,
for real, though? For real? (mimics Trump):
“I think I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon.” (normal voice):
Really? Yeah? It would be ridiculous coming
from anyone, but especially from Trump. He’s gonna run in? Yo, when Trump ran for
president, that was the first time he ran
in his entire life. Come on, man. (cheers and applause) No, you’re telling me,
you’re telling me, this guy is brave enough to run
into an unarmed– he’s brave enough to run into a
school shooting– I know, really– this guy? Really? The same guy, the same guy, who
clung to a secret service agent like he was the last life vest
on the Titanic. That guy? That guy? 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? Really? That guy? But, but he’s also the same guy who proudly tells this story: TRUMP: -Really? That guy?
-(audience exclaims) That guy was gonna run in and
stop a school shooting? Get the (bleep) out of here,
