Well, he is rather top-heavy... and those lifts make for an unstable platform... so yeah
 
2020-05-25 11:28:21 AM  
It's hard to stand on two hooves
 
2020-05-25 11:28:36 AM  
Why is he saluting?  That's taking a shiat on every veteran, alive or dead.
 
2020-05-25 11:31:32 AM  
He's never been able to stand correctly.

To be fair to the Trump, there [were hurricane force winds]Trump [was a slight breeze]fake news he had to contend with..........
 
2020-05-25 11:32:14 AM  
He remained standing though the wind was howling right in that one spot.
 
2020-05-25 11:33:13 AM  
Give him a break, he's all tuckered out from his long weekend of working at golf.
 
2020-05-25 11:34:01 AM  
Standing up straight would require a spine.

Jake Havechek: Why is he saluting?  That's taking a shiat on every veteran, alive or dead.


Blame Reagan. Excerpt below is from is from Rachel Maddow's "Drift".

Upon entering the White House in 1981, Ronald Reagan began saluting every uniformed service member he saw.

One of his military aides, a Marine officer named John Kline, worried that Reagan's new ritual was inappropriate, and voiced his concerns directly with the president. Soldiers were supposed to salute their president; the president was not supposed to salute the soldiers. No modern president, not even old General Eisenhower, had saluted military personnel. It might even be, well, sort of, improper. Reagan seemed disappointed at this news.

Kline suggested he talk to the commandant of the United States Marine Corps and get his advice, and the commandant's advice ran something like this: You're the god---- president. You can salute whoever you god---- well please. So Ronald Reagan continued saluting his soldiers, and he encouraged his own vice president and successor, George H.W. Bush, to do the same. And every president since has followed.

And that's it. Now all the presidents do it because of the theater of the office. And because the media and pundits would take offense if they didn't.
 
2020-05-25 11:36:35 AM  
He was swaying around a bit and seemed to be somewhat winded after the walk.
Pence, otoh, was walking like a robot.
 
2020-05-25 11:37:39 AM  
Why the fark is he saluting?  He's a civilian and a never-served, he doesn't have the right.

I was looking for a picture of Reagan saluting for that long.   At least he did it right.  Trump looks like he's shading his eyes.  But I came across this:

3" lifts tend to throw off your center of gravity
 
2020-05-25 12:05:10 PM  
Trump couldn't stand straight because the Unknown Soldiers at the tomb were yelling in his head "Get the f*ck out of here, Cadet Bone Spurs!" and made him lose his concentration.

That's just got to cause serious chronic back pain. Good.
 
2020-05-25 12:07:44 PM  
It's always first day at standing class.
 
2020-05-25 12:08:31 PM  
you'd wobble around too if you passed gas on the scale that shiat bag does

It's a mighty wind
 
2020-05-25 12:09:07 PM  
He wears lifts too, because Trump absolutely hates it when somebody is taller than him.
 
2020-05-25 12:10:04 PM  
I don't see him swaying any more than the others standing there.

He's still a dick, though.
 
2020-05-25 12:10:17 PM  
He stands like a top-heavy Star Wars action figure.

He's the Commander-in-Chief. Just be grateful he isn't in a Generalissimo outfit.

Good to see that the bigliest of shoe lifts was immediately covered.

As to the salute I don't have 'that' much of a problem with it.  The holder of the office 'is' the Commander in Chief...so, if he wants to...eh.

/That the current occupier of that office isn't worthy of sniffing the jock of the newest recruit is an entirely different matter.
 
2020-05-25 12:12:20 PM  
It would have been awful if he had fallen over on National television. I might just have doubled over myself in response.

Combination of 3+" lifts hidden in his shoes in addition to the heel height, his gut, and forced posture to hide it by draping his suit coat over it, and allowing his tie to hang down straight instead of curving around his bloated stomach.

Factor in his age, and two rounds of golf over the weekend, and he's probably physically exhausted.
 
2020-05-25 12:12:34 PM  
No, that's just "being overcome with patriotism after a long round of golf"

By 1PM EDT at the latest Fox News will have digitally manipulated the image to have him standing straight while everyone else leans.

By 2PM EDT OANN will have used ILM-level de-aging software and photoshopped the modified head onto Thor's body.

By 3PM EDT Trump will tweet he was standing that way as a joke to mock the Fake News media

It's been 'shooped.  Look at the pavement lines around I'm Eric and Half Scoop. Their arms and torsos were manipulated somewhat. They look creepy enough without that, BTW.
