Everything that Trump
does is bound to make the headlines, not just because he is the President but
also because he is one of the weirdest ones in US history.
On Saturday, Trump
delivered a speech at West Point’s commencement meeting and decided to descend
the stage by walking down a ramp.

Now if it was anyone
else, you wouldn’t expect anything unusual but Trump apparently scooted down the
ramp with caution, watching his steps while other people just did it with ease.
In the video, you can
see that he struggles a lot to walk down the ramp but West Point superintendent
Darryl A Williams does the same without any difficulty.
This might not have
been viral had Trump not criticized Obama’s stair-walking style in 2014 and
called it “inelegant and unpresidential”. One hilarious thing to note here is
that Obama, too, used this West Point ramp in 2014 and did so with ease. So
Trump’s tweets do come back to haunt him from time to time.
The joke should have
ended after people retweeted his walk but please don’t forget that this is
President Trump, we are talking about. He did not like the mockery at all and
took to Twitter to defend his walk, calling the ramp “long and steep”, which it
is not if you look at the video. He also said that it was “slippery” and many
did not fail to point out that the weather was extremely dry on Saturday.
Where else will you
find a president who goes on Twitter to define his walk down the ramp instead
of discussing global issues like the pandemic and the ongoing protests against
systemic racism? Honestly, Trump outdoes himself every time and he clearly
hates any comment about his health, strength, and walk.
