Literally and psysically falling into a bunker, and no one really cares. Par for the course.

Abe told reporters that he and Trump had a deep discussion on serious issues,

Yeah, right, and I suppose people are supposed to actually believe this?

Haha only reason this got covered now is coz it went viral. Need to add a comical spin to this pandering fail.

Haha, the Japanese authorities have been caught out by how viral this video clip went on social media. It shows their dear leader for what he is: an inept fool scurrying round after his master Trump and engaging in slapstick moments! Physical comedy at its best

All that Raijio Taiso... falls in a sand trap.

Mishaps like this can happen to anyone, and as much as I'm not an Abe fan, it's good that he wasn't injured. Simple falls can have nasty results.

But this is truly classic for capturing-the-moment. If you made up an original comedy sketch with this, people would think it's too far fetched.

But as often is the case - Fact is more interesting than Fiction - we've got Abe left all alone in the bunker, with Trump et entourage having already turned and moved on, and Abe takes a comical spill. And even the sand raker looked nonchalantly on. Fits the puppy narrative to a tee.

If you click the link at the end of the story, you will see the incident.

Everyone slips. Sometimes we fall. That's life.

If Trump fell into the bunker they would need a crane to get him out.
