Old Footage Showing Donald Trump Playing Beach Volleyball Surfaces and It’s Bad

What do you get when you combine Donald Trump, a pair of dad jeans, an ill-fitting hat and a beach volleyball court?

Well, you get what I would consider one of the greatest videos in the history of moving images. Below is a video of Donald Trump attempting to play beach volleyball.

Now, if this video doesn’t scream 1980s, I don’t know what does. But that’s far from the most important piece of analysis here.

First off, could Donald Trump’s jeans get any higher? Serious question; I actually want to know.

And what was the point of even putting that hat on in the first place? It didn’t stand a chance in hell staying on Trump’s head.

I love that little two-handed shot Trump pulls as he falls to his knees, no doubt as a result of his previous shitty shot that barely made it over the net.

Also, what is that fist pump at the end. You just know that’s Trump taking credit for one of his teammates bailing him out. This dude sucks at everything.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want someone who can barely hit a volleyball given access to nuclear codes. That’s just me.

Now remember, this wouldn’t be a big deal if Trump himself didn’t act like he was the greatest sportsman to ever sport.

I mean just a few days ago we got to see this beauty:

And remember Anthony Scaramucci?

Just a few hours after formally accepting a position as Trump’s new director of communications, Scaramucci offered a fairly unique assessment of why he’s confident in Trump’s ability to get things done: He’s clutch at sports.

“He’s the most competitive person I’ve ever met,” Scaramucci said. “Okay? I’ve seen this guy throw a dead spiral through a tire. I’ve seen him at Madison Square Garden with a topcoat on. He’s standing in the key; he’s hitting foul shots and swishing them, all right? He sinks 30-foot putts.”

“I don’t see this guy as a guy that’s ever under siege. This is a very, very competitive person,” he continued. “Obviously there’s a lot of incoming that comes in to the White House, but the president’s a winner, Okay? And what we’re going to do is we’re going to do a lot of winning.”
