It would be sad and pitiable if any president besides #Trump were tweeting this “explanation” of his gingerly, frightened ramp descent at West Point. However given his practice of cruelly assaulting the imperfections of others, he deserves nothing however derision. https://t.co/fjwEMkRr6I

Trump’s West Point speech revealed a guy who is physically and mentally impaired. Consuming water should not take two hands unless you are concealing a trembling. Trump’s delivery was halting, at times slurred. And his departure down a small ramp revealed he required a walker or golf cart. https://t.co/qAfZgP2DGS

Some people are afraid that when Trump loses he won’t leave the White House. Do not worry. The Army Corps of Engineers will build a tough ramp with solid handrails.

The ramp was ideal. Perfectly mild. It was not a slippery ramp. It is clear that in addition to your incompetence, ineptitude amorality and hazardous ridicule for the Constitution you just do not have the vigor for the task. Your geriatric shuffle and corpulence show weakness https://t.co/oSmLCjLKMP

Descent into madness, one slippery ramp at a time.

President Trump has actually always been careful and methodical when ascending and descending stairs and ramps, knowing that any stumble might be embarrassing and even politically pricey.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stumbled and fell in 2011 while boarding a plane with the video cameras on her, a video that was consistently replayed throughout her unsuccessful presidential campaign.
Other minutes on the path featured aides reach out to assist Clinton after she slipped increasing the stairs.

Trump safeguarded his careful walk down the ramp noting it was long, high, slippery, and had no handrail.
” The last thing I was going to do is ‘fall’ for the Fake News to have a good time with,” he composed. “Last ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!”
The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was long & high, had no handrail and, most notably, was very slippery. The last thing I was going to do is “fall” for the Fake News to have a good time with. Final 10 feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!
