Media is ‘Sandbagging” with the Recent Presidential Fall – Watch Video
President Joe Biden hae a pretty bad day at the Air Force Academy commencement. He got confused trying to figure out where he had to go, multiple times during the event, and he told some shameful falsehoods to people he will soon allegedly command. He also took a pretty big fall, as he greeted the Air Force cadets during the ceremony.
Biden seemed to be okay, but he was slow getting up; initially, he couldn’t. He needed help from the Secret Service to get back up. The fall has sparked a flurry of speculation about his health and fitness for office. While some have expressed concern about Biden’s age and physical condition, the liberal media has largely downplayed the incident, dismissing it as a minor stumble.
White House Communications Director Ben LeBolt pointed to a sandbag that was on the stage as the culprit.
In the immediate aftermath of the fall, liberal media outlets were quick to point out that Biden was not injured and that he quickly got back up. They also downplayed the significance of the fall, arguing that it was simply a “slip-up” that could happen to anyone.
For example, a CNN article on the fall began by saying, “President Joe Biden took a tumble while walking up the steps to Air Force Academy commencement, but he was not injured and quickly got back up.” The article went on to say that Biden “appeared to be in good spirits” and that he “continued with the commencement ceremony.”
A similar story appeared in The New York Times, which reported that Biden “stumbled while walking up the steps to Air Force Academy commencement.” The Times article also noted that Biden “got up quickly and continued on his way.”
How many times has he fallen in this first term? Several times, starting in March 2021, when he fell climbing the stairs to Air Force One multiple times. He also took a hard fall off his bike when he stopped suddenly to talk to a little girl. He fell going up the stairs to his plane again, returning from Poland in February. Most recently, he almost fell down the stairs in Japan when — for a moment — when for a moment Jill, his handler, was no where to be found.
He's fine. There was a sandbag on stage while he was shaking hands. https://t.co/jP4sJiirHh
