President Trump talks a big game about standing his ground and getting tough. But does he also have a crippling fear of... stairs?

Reports following Trump's meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May have added fuel to an already burning rumor about the president's bizarre aversion to steps and slopes—two ancient, convenient human inventions you'd think would pose no problem to the leader of the free world. Apparently, he gripped May's hand in abject terror while walking down a ramp with her, as if he were your feeble grandpa getting around his retirement home.

Previously, administration insiders expressed skepticism that Trump would ever willingly climb a flight of stairs to powwow with top adviser and failed standup comedian Kellyanne Conway's White House office.

As everyone in media knows, two examples makes a trend, and now most observers are convinced that Trump is even more scared of the real, stair-filled world than we previously imagined.

Trump hates stairs so much, he was even concerned about Obama falling down them.

We also saw Trump foiled by stairs at his inauguration, when he didn't bother to escort his wife Melania up a few steps the way Barack Obama did with Michelle.

Will we soon see an executive order demanding that all the nation's steps and slopes be replaced with golden elevators? Stranger things have happened—especially in the week since an unqualified weirdo moved into the Oval Office.
