Unsteady Trump Nearly Falls Off the Rally Stage in NH and Twitter is Having a Field Day

Donald Trump appeared to narrowly avoid falling over as he walked up to the podium at a campaign rally in New Hampshire on Friday evening.

Video shows Trump flailing his arms while steadying himself a few feet from the lectern after disembarking from Air Force One.

Trump’s rally in New Hampshire is his first campaign event since accepting the Republican Party nomination for a second term at the party’s national convention in Charlotte, North Carolina earlier this week.

The campaign event was held at the PeriCohas Hangar and attendees were closely packed together without any apparent social distancing as they watched Trump speak.

The president has previously held campaign events without strict social distancing, including at an indoor rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in June, which health officials said “more than likely contributed” to the county’s spike in COVID-19 cases.

But many people were talking about Trump looked…sweaty…and as he walked onto the stage, he seemed to slip a bit and lose his balance.

Twitter had a field day:
