Indeed, the police deserve a hand. But what about Steve? Will he become some sort of social media folk hero (for the next couple of hours), or just some nut who wasted the police’s time and put the public and himself in danger?
They just jacked him.

NYPD bags a douche bag. America is great again.

It really is odd how compelling Steve’s climb was, despite competition from the Olympics.

Now that Steve is safely inside, time for some hot takes?
If one guy can climb Trump Tower, how would a President Trump stop a horde of Mexicans from climbing his Wall? #DeepThoughts

Excited to read Shaun King's piece tomorrow on what would have happened if the Trump Tower climber was black.

Steve’s next act? Being rolled out the ground floor exit on a stretcher, accompanied by police.
