A man has been using suction cups to scale the exterior of Trump Tower in New York City Wednesday afternoon. Police have sawed out a few windows just above the climber and reportedly have been talking to him as he continues his ascent.
Why? Some say he’s just trying to get one of those famous taco bowls, while others think he’s taking Pokémon GO a little too seriously. Another theory: he’s a BASE jumper with a parachute in his backpack.

No, it’s not him. Word is that the guy’s name is Steve.

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 these suction cups are anything like the ones I use for my razor, he's going to be a splat on the sidewalk. https://t.co/dheU0ampSS

Twitchy will check back with Spider-Man when something a little more interesting happens, but for now, he’s just climbing, and climbing.
Is this Steve from Virginia? After revealing his plan to climb Trump Tower, he adds that he’d like everyone to vote Trump this November.
