‘Is he receiving messages from Russia?’ Trump battles against umbrella, Twitter laughs (VIDEO)
Looking presidential while descending the airstairs is a struggle in the best of times, but the White House incumbent had a particularly torturous walk in front of the cameras after he landed in Washington in windy weather following a rally on Saturday night.

Attacking a politician, however powerful, for not being able to control the elements may seem petty, but it was never going to stop Trump's critics online.
I feel like the umbrella is maybe trying to escape one of Trump’s advances.— Not that David, The other one (@derflatermouse) April 29, 2018
Contrary to what his doctor says, he's too heavy.— Tom (@tomnh90) April 29, 2018

The wind was extremely strong. Unbelievably strong. The worst wind the weather channel has ever recorded as a matter of fact and yet, folks, I remained on my feet which is very difficult to do. I have tremendous balance. Fantastic. Nobody can balance in the wind like me.— somali rose🔪 (@somalirosek) April 29, 2018

Some suggested things were not what they seemed.
I see he turned his umbrella inside out to catch the latest broadcast from the KGB.— WeAreAmerica🇺🇸 (@DemocracyValues) April 29, 2018
Obviously, Hillary ordered Comey to sabotage that umbrella to distract from the fact she conspired with Russia to get Trump elected. 💁🏻♀️/s— MiseryX (@MiseryXchord) April 29, 2018
But for many the deeper meaning was philosophical.
The Trump Umbrella is a perfect allegory for Trump's business history. Starts promising, severe under-performance, lack of interest in resolution, runs it to the ground, hands off the problem to someone else. #TrumpUmbrellapic.twitter.com/axyNVwXlnB— 🄰🄺🅄🄻🄰 (@LxF77) April 29, 2018
