White House Says Joe Biden Stumbled Because ‘It Was Very Windy’

As President Joe Biden was climbing the stairs to Air Force One Friday afternoon, he stumbled not once, but three times.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again … and then salute when you get to the platform?

White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the President was “doing fine” and mentioned the windy conditions to pool reporters, The Independent reports.

“It was very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself,” she said. “He is doing 100%. He’s doing fine. He’s preparing for the trip just fine.”

The Independent reports the stumble up the stairs comes “amid question over the aging president’s fitness for office after referring to his vice president as ‘President Harris.'”

“Now when President Harris and I took a virtual tour of a vaccination center in Arizona …,” Biden said Thursday.

He went on to speak about a virtual tour experience he recently had with the vice president and how a nurse said each vaccination she administered was like giving a “dose of hope to people.”

Biden’s remarks from the White House Press Room’s website show the [Vice] added to the quote, as well.

White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield also reassured the public on the President’s stumble, saying it was “nothing more than a misstep on the stairs.”

“I know folks have seen that President Biden slipped on his way up the stairs to AF1,” Bedingfield tweeted. “But I’m happy to report that he is just fine and did not even require any attention from the medical team who travels with him.”

  1. The way you know someone is lying is when they come up with a reason other than the simple one and it still doesn’t make sense. It would be fine to say he slipped (still a little sketchy given it happened 3 times on carpet that has surely been hand-picked) but to go with “the wind blew the President over” is nuts.

  2. The MSM went nuts when Trump walked slowly down a ramp with no handrail after a West Point commencement. He didn’t even slip, but was accused of being in physical decline. Biden mocked Trump at the time saying “look at how he steps and look how I step, watch how I run up ramps and he stumbles down ramps”. Karma just kicked ass. As usual the MSM had little to say about Biden’s incident. The wind excuse is hilarious BS.

    • Agree. Now China and Russia both are mocking this country and our demented dickwad President. Blinken pulls an Obama and admits the mistakes that the US has made in the past face to face with Chinese officials.

  3. China is now scolding us for being controlled by “Baizou”. I’d never heard of it. Basically means white liberal phony hypocrites governing by woke, social justice, identity politics. Looks like China has the Biden Administration pegged.

  4. He’s obviously in cognitive decline and has been for quite awhile. Makes it little harder to talk shit about him. But not impossible. He’s been a liar his whole life, and always acted like a tough guy with his Scranton schtick, even though he only lived there a few years of his life. The push up.challenges. Making fun of Trump, who did not fall. And this guy looks like he’s doing a floor exercise for the 96′ Korean Olympic gymnastics team on the stairs of Air Force One. Idiot
