A man is currently climbing the exterior of Trump Tower using what appears to be little more than suction cups, carabiners, and rope. While this isn’t the first time someone has made the precarious vertical ascent of a skyscraper, it is the first time such a climb has involved a building owned by the Republican nominee for president of the United States. 2016, y’all.
CNN's Facebook page is currently streaming the climb. This is an incredibly dangerous stunt, so please keep that in mind while viewing this stream.
Here's another angle from Twitter user Gerald Iorio:
