Looks like the lectern’s on wheels that weren’t locked down. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N040YRBq05w

I’d prefer he be in maximum security solitary confinement, or have the decency to keel over from one too many cheeseburgers, but this doesn’t actually look too bad. Goofy. He immediately blames his people, etc. but no he doesn’t fall over or anything.

It’s a problem he could easily solve himself by stepping on the brake. If he can’t figure that out, why would anyone want him to run a country?

First time?

I was really hoping to see him almost fall over, but that was really a nothing. I hate him too, but stooping to exaggerations like this is kind of pathetic.

I can’t agree more. I watched the video and not only did he not topple over due to his own movements, he made very witty comments and played to the crowd in the moment.

Honestly, I would be scared to show that clip of my opponent having a human moment.

Article quote is wrong, needs to be updated...

"it keeps tilting further left...", good joke on the fly.

Funny nontheless.

Trump rally: "this is the worst platform"

Too true

[-] [email protected] 8 points 1 month ago

Seems like that platform needs some infrastructure

[-] [email protected] 17 points 1 month ago

Heh. A much as I think Trump is a grade A bellend, that was actually a decent recovery.

[-] Veedem 7 points 1 month ago

Yeah I came to say something similar. The way he handled it is EXACTLY why his supporters like him.

[-] blazera 22 points 1 month ago

I guess we can only hope he keels over. This a lame story tho.

Gotta mix up your media diet with some lighthearted silliness every now and then

Ugh. I hate it when geriatric populist fascists accidentally stumble into a halfway decent joke.

“I notice it keeps tilting to the left,” Trump joked, “Like too many other things!”

I guess he is an "entertainer," so it shouldn't be much of a surprise that his jokes are better than his platform. Double entendre definitely intended.

Of course, to everyone watching—at least, to everyone watching who isn't behind Trump—it's pretty clear that everything is actually tilting to the right, and becoming a whole lot more unstable.

I gotta give it to the guy, that was the one time he managed to make me laugh

[-] [email protected] 4 points 4 weeks ago

Love him or hate him the man knows how to work a room.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 4 weeks ago

I don't believe this is ad-libbed. I think this was planned. It looks just like some of Ronald Reagan's clever quips.
