Donald Trump Blames ‘Crappy Contractor’ After Onstage Wobble

by Jessica

Former President Donald Trump on Friday night blamed the stage contractor after appearing to momentarily wobble during his rally in St. Paul, Minnesota.

A clip of the moment was posted by the X, formerly Twitter, account Biden-Harris HQ, which is associated with President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign. In the footage, Trump leans on his podium and tips toward the left while addressing his supporters, moving the dais with him.

“You know, this is the worst platform,” Trump said after his lurch. “Who put this stage up?” It keeps tilting further left,” the former president added. “Like too many other things.”What a crappy contractor this was.”

The Biden-Harris HQ account described the former president as “feeble” in the incident, writing in its post, “A feeble Trump nearly falls down on stage after he leans on his podium too hard and then goes on an angry rant calling his event workers ‘crappy.'”

During the rally, Trump also took shots at Biden, including demanding that the president take a drug test before the two candidates debate this summer. The former president has previously suggested that Biden was “all jacked up” during his State of the Union address in March.

“I just wanna debate this guy, but you know, I’m gonna demand a drug test too, by the way,” Trump said Friday. “I am. No, I really am. I don’t want him coming in like the State of the Union. He was high as a kite.”

Biden and Trump, the presumptive presidential nominees for their respective parties, earlier this week agreed to two presidential debates. One will be hosted in June by CNN, with another scheduled for September and hosted by ABC.

Biden has been captured tripping on several occasions at public events, including while onstage Wednesday at an event to commemorate National Peace Officers Memorial Day.

The president’s age and physical capabilities have been key concerns among voters ahead of November. At 81, Biden is already the oldest president to hold office. He will turn 82 a few weeks after the general election.

Trump will turn 78 in June. Polling has shown that voters also believe the former president is too old to run for president again. Some Democrats and mental health experts have also suggested that Trump’s mental capabilities appear to be “faltering.”
