Ramp to USS NC ship was tented today, possibly to shield Trump from scrutiny

(the tented ramp is on the left and is colored white, was hard for me to see initially)

Trump delivered a speech in Wilmington, N.C., about its designation as the first American World War II Heritage City. The port city is known in part for being home to a major shipyard during World War II, as well as for currently being home to the Battleship North Carolina, which served as a backdrop during the presidentís remarks.

6. Crawl? How big is the ramp?

Is it big enough for a 600-lb golf cart with a 239-lb driver?

3. Native North Carolinian here

I have never seen that ramp with a cover. I can't imagine covering it for any other reason. It is steep ramp at all.

8. I once went on that ship--

the river beneath was filled with alligators. Well, maybe not filled, but there were plenty.

Maybe they want to make very sure Trump doesn't fall off the ramp into the water.

IQ 45 will be pushed up the ramp in a wheel chair then rise to waddle the last five feet

18. Well

he still has to get on and off his airplanes, which is getting harder and harder for him to do without almost face-planting. The vehicle is almost touching the steps as it is now - he literally only has to take a couple steps to get into the car.

Something is wrong and he can't hide it anymore. Fumbling through every speech he gives and flailing up and down steps and ramps isn't really good for his attacks on Joe Biden. Using covers like this is only going to create more speculation that there is something that might make him physically unfit for office...
