Last week, Biden made national headlines when he fell up the stairs of Air Force One three times. The 46th president was seen stumbling and seeming tried to brush it off by saluting after he finally made his way up the stairs.
Americans didn’t hesitate in giving their thoughts. Many conservatives stated that if former President Trump had an episode where he fell up Air Force One steps not one, not two, but three times, the media wouldn’t have simply pushed it to the side as they did with Biden.
It also didn’t take long for memes of Biden’s fall up the Air Force One steps to lead to thousands of memes across social media. Eventually, the White House was forced to issue a statement on the matter, Breitbart News confirms.
The White House on Biden’s Fall up Air Force One Steps
According to the White House, a gust of wind is responsible for the Democrat president falling three times during his climb up Air Force One. Karine Jean-Pierre, the deputy press secretary of the White House, stated that because the weather was “pretty windy,” that’s what prompted Biden’s fall.

Jean-Pierre also claimed that she herself almost fell down due to the almighty strength of the wind. After Biden’s fall, some social media users furthermore asked if Biden suffered any injuries after his falls, some of which looked very rough.
Additional Damage Control from the White House
Kate Bedingfield, the communications director of the White House, also publicized a statement about the 46th president’s fall. Bedingfield declared that Biden was “just fine” and not in need of any medical care. Finally, the communications director dismissed the president’s three falls up Air Force One as a “misstep.”
I know folks have seen that President Biden slipped on his way up the stairs to AF1, 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. Nothing more than a misstep on the stairs.

In a nutshell, many Americans just don’t believe the narrative coming from the White House. This is the same administration that won’t even be candid with the American people about the border crisis. Meanwhile, as Biden falls up Air Force One, he is also refusing to hold a single press conference after two months as president.
Needless to say, there is a lot of speculation about Biden’s fall and what this means about his health.
