How can you top Donald Trump’s personal brand of crazy? Steve knows. Check this out. It turns out that the 20 year old from Virginia had posted a video yesterday on YouTube that explains his reasons. If you haven’t seen the NYPD rip him off Trump Tower, that is worth a look, too.

So here’s the story. Wednesday, August 10, a man climbed up Trump Tower. He had suction cups and a climbing harness, but it was still a risky maneuver. NYPD’s Manhattan South Chief William Morris has finished up a press conference, but they’ve still not released the climber’s full name.
Morris also noted that this “Steve” is the same creepy man in a posted to YouTube called “Message to Mr. Trump (Why I Climbed Your Tower).”
“Excuse my manner of appearance” Steve says in the video.”I would rather not be recognizable. I am an independent researcher seeking a private audience with you to discuss an important matter.”
“I guarantee that it is in your interest to honor this request. Believe me, if my purpose was not significant, I would not risk my life pursuing it.” We assume the risk he’s referring to is the climbing of the tower.
“The reason I climbed your tower was to get your attention. I’ll get my contact information to your campaign so that if you are interested you can respond.”
“As for anyone else who is watching please help this video go viral. And be sure to get out and vote for Mr. Trump in the 2016 election.”
Steve began climbing the 58-story high building at 3:30 p.m. ET. Close to 3 hours later, after a veritable media frenzy, NYPD Special Ops hauled him violently into the building.
Cops wheeled him out of the building on a stretcher and took him to Bellevue Hospital for a psychological exam.
Michael Cohen, speaking on behalf of the Trump Organization, told the New York Post “This man performed a ridiculous and dangerous stunt. There’s damage to the building and he caused the unnecessary deployment of New York’s finest to protect his safety and the safety of everyone in the building. If Mr. Trump were here he’d be thanking law enforcement for the job they’re doing.”
