Highly Debatable

Sharing his opinion
of the Republican response
to gun violence

as exemplified
by their actions

following the 24-hour sit-in
staged by House Democrats

to secure a vote
on gun control measures

otherwise known as nothing

White House Press Secretary John Earnest said

"Cowards are people
who talk tough

in the hope
they will not be asked
to actually act."

And meanwhile the Republican candidate
has proven just how slow

of a learner he is

when in an NBC interview

when asked if he was ready
to debate Hillary Clinton

he said "I think my whole life
has been in preparation frankly."
