Yet another CNN personality called President Donald Trump out on Monday for asserting that he would have run into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine's Day to prevent the mass shooting that left 17 people dead.


"It's ridiculous," analyst Jeffrey Toobin noted. "It's embarrassing."

Toobin became the third CNN pundit to blast Trump's comments, joining host Jake Tapper who noted that Trump's comments were ironic given his draft-dodging and reporter Jim Acosta, who asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders if the president was suggesting that he would have "saved the day."

"In fairness, when you look at his heroism during the Vietnam war, a prisoner of war for five years — oh, no, that was John McCain," the legal analyst joked during a panel discussion with host Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room."
