MOMENTUM! Video of Trump tottering down 'steep and slippery' ramp goes viral as Internet goes berserk
The social media leaves no opportunity to react to what US President Donald Trump says or does. While MAGA supporters use the platform to praise Trump, the rest mercilessly troll him with brutal memes and posts.
Trump is trending on Twitter once again for taking pride in walking down a ramp that was “very steep” according to him. He took to Twitter a while ago to tweet, “The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery. The last thing I was going to do is “fall” for the Fake News to have fun with. Final ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!”
In the video, which has gone viral, the President’s gait is quite strange and has sparked a conversation on the internet. Using #rampgate, Twitter users are flooding the site with numerous memes and comments featuring Trump’s latest ramp walk. While one wrote, “Looks like your diaper might have been so full from drinking all that water. Funny! Or you had a stroke awhile ago and are not telling us #rampgate”
Mocking the President for his tweet in which he has stated that he “ran down” the final ten feet, one user asked, “I can't believe those general's didn't have a runaway Trump ramp prepared for you. What dopes and Idiots. Thank God you ran down the last 10 feet of that 12 foot ramp!”
Meanwhile, a few got into the technical details of the ramp to prove that it wasn’t “steep” as Trump stated it to be. “The "Steep Ramp" #Trump was walking down is angled at ~11.2 degrees. An average stair case is angled at ~ 37 degrees. I guess it is steep in a #TrumpIsNotWell sense.” said one.
“If it was *long*, it wouldn't be very *steep* (and vice versa) unless you started someplace *really high*. I mean, look at this picture. I dunno how to calculate angles, but that can't be more than 25-30 degrees,” added another.
And one using a political reference mockingly asked, “Slippery? Like Stormy Daniels? Slippery and Steep? Like your path to re-election? Oh yeah, you’ll be trying to bribe and pay people off for that too!”
