Before Thursday’s presidential debate, Trump Tower was struck by what appears to be three simultaneous bolts of lightning, though one Twitter user pointed out that it could just be one lightning strike followed by what are called “stepped leaders,” or a series of secondary strikes that commonly follow the first.
Photographer Barry Butler posted an image on Twitter, he took of the incredible incident, writing: “Three Simultaneous Lightning Strikes on the Trump Hotel Chicago at 2:14am on Thursday.”
ABC 7 Chicago turned to their Twitter account where users sounded off in the comments with some pretty hilarious reactions to the ironic lightning strike that took place just hours before Trump is scheduled to face off against Joe Biden in the final presidential debate.
One user parodied the Trump administration’s proclivity for taking credit for things with this clever joke: “Trump Campaign: ‘We would like to thank President Trump for building the first hotel that safely attracts lightning so none of our citizens are ever stuck again. Lightning deaths are down almost 749% since Trump took office.’”
Another added, “When does a giant marshmallow Bill Barr show up?” referencing the Marshmallow Man who descends on the city in Ghostbusters.
