President Joe Biden is mostly known for his clumsiness with word choice, as has been witnessed on more occasions than one can possibly count. Gaffes are his specialty and quite honestly, a number of them are hilarious.
However, the 78-year-old president had a bit of physical clumsiness today as he attempted to climb the stairs to board Air Force One. As you’ll see in the video below, Biden appeared to be climbing the stairs at a pace that’s probably a little too quick for his age and physical health.
He fell three times in his attempt, before finally making it to the top of the staircase.

Let me be clear, I’m not making fun of the old man for stumbling up a flight of stairs — it can happen to the best of us. And thankfully, he didn’t appear to have suffered any injuries during the process.
Not surprisingly, though, memes of the unfortunate optics emerged within minutes of the video footage making the rounds online.

Another Twitter user poked a little fun at the Democrats’ talking point of accusing everyone of “interfering with Democracy.”
“THE STAIRS TRIED TO INTERFEAR WITH OUR WONDERFUL DEMOCRACY! THEY AREN’T SUPPOSED TO DO THAT! THAT’S OUR JOB!” the user wrote.
The token Life Alert meme was also introduced.

Another Twitter user referenced some of Biden’s past brags about being able to outperform others in feats of strength.

As expected, a number of Biden supporters attempted to defend the president, claiming that it’s not a big deal. However, many others correctly pointed out that if Trump would have fallen, CNN, MSNBC and every other network would have gone into “Breaking News” mode and covered it for an entire day, probably calling into question his health and well-being.
Regardless, because he wasn’t injured, I don’t feel back for chuckling at this one.
