Skip to comments.Virginia man hospitalized day after Trump Tower escapade

A man scales the all-glass facade of Trump Tower, Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2016, in New York. A police spokeswoman says officers responded to Donald Trump's namesake skyscraper on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. The 58-story building is headquarters to the Republican presidential nominee's campaign. He also lives there.
The New York Police Department identified the climber as 19-year-old Stephen Rogata, of Great Falls, Virginia. It was unclear when Rogata would appear in court or if he had an attorney who could comment for him.
Rogata made a spectacle of himself on Wednesday by spending three hours scaling the glass facade of the 68-story Trump Tower in Manhattan using large suction cups before officers hauled him to safety through an open window. He was taken to a hospital for an evaluation.
A day before the ascent, police said, the climber posted an online video addressing Trump. He called himself an independent researcher seeking a private audience with you to discuss an important matter and said he was willing to risk his life to get your attention.

We’re in short supply of sane individuals in this country.
I’m a little curious about the message he wanted to get to The Donald.
I’m actually glad it wasn’t terrorists who identified this vulnerability first. Seriously, how the heck does someone get to scale Trump Tower or any NYC skyscraper? What if it had been a suicide bomber?
I'm really sick of the lies. "Hauled him to safety?" Bullcrap. He may have been trespassing, he may have been a complete ass, he may be a raving looney ... but he was at no point in any particular danger. He had reasonably appropriate equipment, and it seems to have been in proper working order, and he seems to have known how to use it.
Why hospitalized? Why was he arrested while strapped to a gurney?
Something stinks here.
He should have to clean off all the suction cup makes
I’m not curious.
Retarded people like this abound at this moment in our history.
A movie quote:
Dr. Lexus: “Don’t worry scrote! There are plenty of ‘tards out there living really kick ass lives. My first wife was ‘tarded. She’s a pilot now.”
It's still too early to rule out a connection to the Clinton Crime Family.Mayor Wilhelm is,after all,"all in" with the Former Twelfth Lady and "mental illness" might be the word from her campaign.
Watching the police ‘help’ him to come inside, I wondered if perhaps his male parts had been. ‘er a that was not exactly a gentle re-entry I mean it really looked like maybe he was being emasculated...more like being gelded rather than being pulled inside...those police really know how to neuter a situation.
It was about the space aliens flying above his home.
I would like to hear a bit of his climbing history??
His firsts? His high points?
I once met Spider Dan Goodwin (Sears tower, Hancock, CN tower...)
He was total muscle, zero fat,CUT...
Climbers usually are in good shape, but he was a stand out!
From the photos, this guy/ not so much.
His message to Trump was...”clean your windows..they have suction cup marks all over them”
Then he went Porky Pig on them and said, “da da ..da da ..da da ..dat’s all folks.”
Lol - quite likely, but I’d still like to know.
He could have really wanted to put himself in the public eye BEFORE coming forward with information, thinking it would keep him alive. You never know. Who is he and what’s his background?
Where can I buy some of those suction devices?
It took him 2.5 hours to get 40% of the way to the top.Darkness was only a couple of hours away.Thunderstorms,it was said,were moving in from Jersey.And he was surely tired and sore even if he was in great shape.As we learned from 9/11 a body make a hell of a noise...and makes a hell of a mess...when it falls 100,or even 30,stories.
See my tagline. ;-)
Just try getting out of a Hospital when they know you can pay!
Something about “precious bodily fluids”.
