President Donald Trump joined thousands of other people who shared a viral video of an out-of-control airport cart spinning in circles before being stopped—and people began comparing the video to him.
The video captures a beverage cart spinning wildly in circles at O’Hare Airport in Chicago as a group of workers stare at it, unsure of what to do. As the cart spins closer to the nose of an airplane, a worker drives a red loading truck straight into it, knocking it over and stopping it from causing damage to the plane.

A spokesperson for American Airlines told ABC7 in Chicago they believe an accelerator on the cart became stuck, leading to it spinning in circles.
On Tuesday morning, Trump weighed in on the video.
“Great job, just in time!” the president tweeted.

Trump inserting himself into the viral discourse quickly led people to make comparisons to the video and his presidency.
Many people compared the president to the spinning beverage cart, and the red truck to “impeachment” or other things.
The guy with the red truck is impeachment. https://t.co/oLoffCOfhC— Matt Duss (@mattduss) October 1, 2019
Video shows adequately that when something, like a presidency, is completely out of control, you must do everything to stop it. https://t.co/SsoCIYB0eQ— Evert (G.) te Winkel (@egtewinkel) October 1, 2019
