A 20-year-old Virginia man climbed up the outside of Trump Tower in New York using big suction cups, a harness and rope stirrups for three hours yesterday (August 10th) before officers pulled him in through an open window. The climber, who wasn’t named by police, claimed to be a researcher who wanted a, quote, “private audience” with Donald Trump, and made it as high as the 21st floor of the 68-story building before officers grabbed him and pulled him in through a window. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation. The man had posted a YouTube video a day earlier called, “Message to Mr. Trump (why I climbed your tower).” It was posted under the name Leven Thumps, which is a character from a children’s fantasy novel series.

Here is the climber explaining why he climbed the tower in a creepy YouTube video.
