President Donald Trump made an embarrassing climb into Air Force One with what appeared to be some sort of paper product attached to the bottom of his shoe.
Video showed him step out of a limousine in front of the aircraft at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport and start up the staircase with a couple squares of toilet paper or, perhaps, a napkin, billowing in the wind with each step.
As he reached the top, the president — seemingly oblivious — turned around and waved goodbye.

Historically, toilet paper and shoes have gone together much like humiliating faux pas and deep, tear-inducing belly laughter.
Those who had the privilege to see it happen — either live or later on while watching videos on social media — couldn’t help but share it.
CNN political commentator Ana Navarro posted a clip on social media. “Starting the day with a little comic relief,” she wrote Friday on Twitter.
Starting the day with a little comic relief:
While we were all distracted fighting over the future of the Republic, Trump climbed all the way up the stairs of Air Force One, with toilet-paper stuck to his shoe. https://t.co/QoSDcjwliL

So did “The View” co-host Abby Huntsman, though she showed some sympathy for the president.
