Joe Biden tripped multiple times while making his way up the steps of Air Force One on Friday.
The 78-year-old stumbled two times before finally falling to his knees while clutching the staircase rail with his right hand.
Biden took a moment to examine and pat his leg after getting back on his feet.
Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk pointed out on Twitter how the ordeal might make the U.S. appear weak to China, as Biden and Kamala Harris set off to meet with the Asian community in Atlanta, Georgia following Tuesday’s mass shooting.
Here’s another angle of the spill:
It is ironic that Biden had teased how he can “run up ramps” while President Donald Trump “stumbles down ramps.”
One conservative contributor tweeted a screenshot of a June 2020 New York Times (NYT) article headline calling into question Tump’s “health” after the 45th POTUS was seen walking “gingerly” down a ramp at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
American Faith reached out to NYT asking whether the publication would call Joe’s health into question too. NYT did not immediately respond.
Fox News producer Pat Ward tweeted that the White House confirmed Biden is in good shape.
White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre blamed Biden’s fall on the wind, according to Reuters. “It’s very windy outside,” said Jean-Pierre.
Personnel in the video can be seen standing straight up and still.
