Trump falters his way down a ramp, and what do you know: There’s always a tweet : Daily Kos


Image is pretty much everything for Donald Trump, so he cannot be happy that the big image that came out of his big commencement speech at West Point was of him inching his way unsteadily down a gentle ramp. West Point was supposed to wrap Trump in presidential pomp and military glory and Trump wanted it badly enough to force the military academy to hold a commencement ceremony that might otherwise not have been held due to coronavirus, and for which cadets were called back to campus after having been sent home.

But images of helicopter flyovers and saluting cadets took a distant second place to that ramp walk, in which Trump pursed his lips as he took small, tentative steps, noticeably leading with his left leg, his eyes glued to the ramp directly in front of him. That has Trump predictably on the defensive, and lying about what we can all see in the video.
