Trump Tower climber gave us an exciting three hour march up the building, but it also spawned hilarious Twitter reactions. One girl thought he looked like Harry Styles while others joked about how the guy could also scale Donald’s proposed border wall. Keep reading for the hilarious tweets.
“Steve from Virginia” — later I.D.’d as Stephen Rogata — captured the eyes of the nation Aug. 10 when he used only suction cups to scale the exterior of Trump Tower in New York. After three long hours of effort to make it up the 60 story skyscraper, he was eventually shut down by an NYPD Crisis Response Team that broke out and window and pulled him off the building. While it made for exciting TV, it also made for hilarious reading on Twitter as people shared their own personal commentaries about the crazy stunt.
One reader joked how Steve’s floppy mop of brown hair made him resemble singer Harry Styles, 22.

Other Twitter users couldn’t help but point out the fact that if a guy was able to scale so high up Donald’s skyscraper with suction cups, then people could easily do the same with his proposed border wall that he says Mexico will pay for.
If Trump can’t keep people from climbing his tower, how’s he gonna keep them from climbing his wall? https://t.co/QLvqJAq1c8

If only Trump Tower was climb proof as the infamous Trump Wall.

You know what Trump Tower needs? A wall. A big, beautiful, suction-proof wall.

Others joked that after it was revealed that Steve was an avid supporter of Donald who used the stunt to get his attention, the climbing stunt proved that Trump’s followers are crazy people.

Even Bravo’s Andy Cohen, 48, couldn’t help but get in on the laughs, pointing out that it came off as a big publicity stunt for the Republican presidential nominee.
Glad someone is climbing Trump Tower – he could really use the publicity

Or course, there had to be a Pokemon Go joke in all of this.
To be fair, the 48th floor of Trump Tower is a much sought-after Pokemon Go gym.

HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Climber Steve’s stunt? Do you think he’ll get his one on one meeting with Donald after trying to climb his building?
