President Donald Trump appeared to struggle as he descended a ramp at West Point on Saturday after delivering a speech he forced over a thousand cadets to attend in the midst of a pandemic. And then he bragged about it on Twitter.
At the end of the ceremony, Trump gingerly walked down the ramp as if he had trouble with it. Later on, he took to Twitter to insist that it was all the ramp’s fault and portrayed himself as some kind of hero for getting to the end of it without falling and embarrassing himself.
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!

The problem is that Trump is already an embarrassment and Twitter users mocked him and called him out for lying.
Dude, you looked fragile like your ego.

1. That was not “steep,” Spanky
2. That was not ten feet
3. That was not “running”

…tomorrow on FOX at 10AM there will be a recreation of my ramp walk. Kevin Sorbo has volunteered to demonstrate how dangerous the ramp was. Big guy. But he will do it in sneakers. I had on fancy shoes. Then at 1pm Kayleigh will have a presser to show a sketch of the Death Ramp.

Is there a ramp to his bunker?

Has there been a day yet when Trump has not embarrassed himself and the United States?
Because he certainly made a fool of himself at West Point.
