Most uber rich and famous people are happy just to walk down the stairs of their private jet.
But Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud of Saudi Arabia wants a little more for when he disembarks.
The King leaves his plane on a golden escalator, because do you really expect him to use a regular escalator like some kind of peasant?
Landing in Moscow this week, he kinda blew his big entrance when his gold escalator failed, causing the unthinkable to happen: he had to use his legs.
After a good 30 seconds of considering his options, the King seized the moment and … walked. Bravo!

Frankly, I am shocked that the lazy sods behind the King didn’t carry him down. He is your King, people. Do something.
As U.S. President Donald Trump – who notably doesn’t have a gold escalator yet – would say: “You’re fired!” Maybe literally by a squad, considering the kinds of punishments dished out in Saudi Arabia.
To be fair, the King is 81 years old, so stairs might be a little tricky to navigate.
But this hasn’t stopped Twitter users from roasting the King alive for his apparent lack of walking skills and the fact that he even owns a golden escalator in the first place.

Good thing escalators turn into stairs when they're broken. 🤔💡

Pffft… that always happens with gold. Everyone knows that you build escalators with diamonds

Let me guess, later the royal commode ran out of golden toilet paper? #LifeSucks ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In the end, the King did make it down and met up with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
A surplus of gold stuff and a meeting with Putin? Trump must be very, very jealous.
