We all saw him with his fish lips pursed making his way down the ramp like a doddering josser until he managed to speed up for his final two steps.

In the last two if you look closely you’ll see that whoever cropped them failed to eliminate that empty parts of the balcony on the top:
Online and on TV the many photos you are seeing elsewhere show a very different picture, for example in Jeff Mason’s tweet:

So how is the malignant narcissist who, like all of his ilk, never cry, reacting to this?
