Look at how he steps, and look at how I step. Watch how I run up ramps and he stumbles down ramps. OK. Come on!” — words that Joe Biden spoke during the 2016 election season in a feeble effort to attack Donald Trump. Words that would come back to haunt him. Words that, ironically, apply better to Joe Biden than President Trump On Friday, Joe Biden attempted to board Air Force One and fell multiple times. Though the White House could have acknowledged some medical issue, they blamed “the wind.”
Joe Biden thought it was cute to make fun of President Trump after he encountered some difficulties on a wet and slick ramp last year. But that remark came back to haunt him after he was caught on video falling — not once, not twice, but three times — while climbing the steps to Air Force One.
You can see Biden attempt to jog up the stairs, but he falls hard on his knee. He gets up and attempts to continue up the stairs, but stumbles and falls again. Then he catches himself and falls even harder. After rubbing his knee, he continues upward with a limp. It didn’t take long for Americans to remind Joe of what he said about Trump:
Most Americans can handle stairs without an issue, and many of those who can’t have underlying medical conditions that prevent it. White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refuses to speak on Biden’s medical conditions but says he is doing fine. Jean-Pierre says that it wasn’t Biden’s advanced age or any medical issues that caused him to fall. It was the wind.
“It’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself,” she says. If Biden has medical issues, that’s perfectly fine. Many Presidents have. But in light of his clear cognitive decline, Americans need to know what other conditions the leader of the free world faces. Biden promised transparency. We’re not getting it.
