The Colorado Springs Fire Department says that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had to be rescued from an elevator that was stuck between the first and second floors of a resort.
In a statement released Saturday, the department says that it was called at 1:30 p.m. Friday to rescue about 10 people, including Trump, trapped inside the elevator at The Mining Exchange, A Wyndham Grand Hotel & Spa resort.
The department says the firefighters opened the top elevator hatch and lowered a ladder into the elevator. Trump and the others used the ladder to climb out of the elevator to the second floor. The department says no injuries were reported.
I don't usually like to take joy in the suffering of anybody else, but I have to admit that I am taking a little joy here.
Just the image of Trump having to haul his huge ass up a ladder to get out of a contained space with nine other people is an image that I find quite enjoyable.
Made even more so by the fact that this was NOT a mechanical failure.
Trump's security team was given control of the hotel's elevators during the event, said Perry Sanders Jr., an attorney who co-owns the hotel.
"The party were model guests but security insisted on having manual control of the elevators," Sanders said.
After the occupants were rescued, technicians for the company that services the elevator determined that the machine became stuck because someone turned the manual key while the car was in motion, Sanders said.
So somebody working directly for Trump, left him stranded in an elevator stuck between floors.
And with that the image just became even more enjoyable.
P.S. By the way the "security team" they reference may or may not be the Secret Service, but if it is the SS they might be rebelling against Trump's treasonous attitudes and attacks on the military.
