Joe Biden Takes Huge Fall on Stage at Air Force Academy Graduation
WENDELL HUSEBØ 1 Jun 2023
Joe Biden took a huge fall on stage at the U.S. Air Force Academy graduation ceremony Thursday.
Video shows Biden, 80, start to walk quickly off center stage when he trips and stumbles, tumbling to his knees and nearly ending up on all fours.
Personnel quickly picked him up before he hobbled behind a barrier.
According to the White House pool report, he seemed to trip “on a black sandbag on the stage” but appeared “to be ok and continued to stand until the ceremony ended a few minutes later.”
In February, Biden released a physical assessment that found he suffers from neuropathy in his feet and atrial fibrillation, among other ailments. The White House refused to disclose to lawmakers if he took a cognitive test.
Published Monday, a Washington Post-backed focus group by the research firms Engagious and Sago offered terrible assessments from voters of Biden’s physical abilities and cognitive acuity during his stint as president of the United States.
Many of the swing state voters in the group called the 80-year-old president “too old” and speculated about if he has dementia.
According to a Yahoo News/YouGov poll, strong majorities of Americans have concerns about Biden’s “health and mental acuity,” including three in four Democrats, with 50 percent being either “very” or “somewhat” concerned and 26 percent being “slightly” concerned, a May poll found.
A majority of voters sampled by Quinnipiac polling this week also believe President Joe Biden is too old to serve a second term as president of the United States.
The tumble comes after Biden has tripped and fallen numerous times:
Tomi Lahren Reaches Limit After Biden Blames Sandbag For Tumble: “This is elder abuse, sad and unfair to Joe and to the country”
David Hawkins June 1, 2023 - 5:02 pm
Tomi Lahren dropped the hammer on President Joe Biden after Joe blamed a sandbag for his epic fall today during the Air Force commencement ceremony.
“He’s fine. There was a sandbag on stage while he was shaking hands,” communications director Ben LaBolt said. The pool report said:
“He appeared to have tripped on a black sandbag on the stage. When he fell, pointed to the black sandbag suggesting that’s what he tripped on.”
Lahren wasn’t buying it and called out Biden and his handlers for what they are doing to Biden and this great country. She said: “This is so sad and unfair to Joe and to the country. This is elder abuse.”
Former President Donald Trump said:
“He did? He just fell on what state? He actually fell down?
“I hope he’s not hurt. The whole thing is…
“The whole thing is crazy.
“Even if you have to tiptoe down the ramp…At the Air Force Academy? That’s not inspiring”
Biden took a tumble after congratulating graduates of the Air Force Academy in Colorado. Biden is 80 and is the oldest president in history.
He is seeking a second term in next year’s election.
But Biden will be 86 if he finishes a second four-year term.
And if he doesn’t, Kamala Harris would step in and even the Democrats acknowledge that will be a disaster.
Biden said earlier during his remarks:
“Graduates, you made a noble choice to lead a life of service.
“Now you also shoulder a great privilege and a mighty responsibility.
“Leadership, yeah leadership.
“In the years ahead, your airmen and guardians are going to look to you for guidance and inspiration because the world is going to get more confusing.
“They’ll put their trust in you.
“You, in turn, must strive to always be worthy of their confidence.”
Trump Has PERFECT Response To Biden’s Nasty Fall In REAL TIME

A reaction to President Joe Biden’s embarrassing gaffe was given by former President Donald Trump on Thursday while he was speaking to supporters at a campaign event in Iowa.
While the President was delivering his commencement address to graduates of the Air Force Academy in Colorado on Thursday, he fell hard to the ground after tripping over his own feet. In attempting to recover, the commander-in-chief had a hard time getting up on his own and had to get assistance from members of the Secret Service and an airman.
After the president’s rough tumble, the formerly boisterous crowd became noticeably quieter and showed signs of shock. Biden seemed to indicate something he might have fallen over before being helped to his feet and stumbling to his seat off center stage.
Trump was notified about Biden’s fall while addressing his supporters in Iowa by a member of the audience. “He fell down? Well, I hope he wasn’t hurt,” Trump stated in response to the information.
“The whole thing is crazy, you gotta be careful about that, you gotta be careful about that, because you don’t want that.”
“Even if you have to tip-toe down a ramp,” he added, drawing laughs from the crowd.
Trump’s remarks looked to be a response to Biden’s earlier accusations that he can “run up” ramps while Trump can only humbly and gently ascend. In 2020, Biden told reporters at West Point, “Watch how I run up ramps and he stumbles down ramps, okay? Come on.”
Though by no means the first, Thursday’s fall was possibly the most momentous of the president’s term. Biden made headlines in 2021 when he tragically fell while boarding Air Force One. The president stumbled over many steps, then collected himself and climbed the stairs without incident.
Biden’s frequent rambling remarks and seeming confusion have been cited by Trump and other presidential candidates as indicators of mental decline. While the Air Force One crash has been featured in advertisements regularly, Thursday’s incident is expected to get the same prominence.
The president stumbled near the top of the ramp leading to the presidential plane in March of this year, just before almost falling down. He could have suffered serious injuries from such a fall.
Prior to his speech on Thursday, Biden needed assistance from staffers to find the stage because he seemed to be lost. He continued by saying that a sitting U.S. senator previously recommended that he enroll in the Naval Academy.
Media Focuses on Biden's Fall at Air Force Commencement, But What Came Moments Before Was Much Worse

If one is to judge by the fact he’s running for re-election, President Joe Biden plans to remain in the Oval Office until Jan. 20, 2029. That means he would have five more opportunities to give commencement addresses at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
That should be concerning, because he barely escaped the 2023 Academy graduation without serious injury.
As you may have heard, Biden took a nasty fall after delivering his commencement address and handing out diplomas at the school near Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Thursday.
The White House is saying the president was uninjured after the fall: “He’s fine. There was a sandbag on stage while he was shaking hands,” Ben LaBolt, White House communications director, said on Twitter. Returning to the White House, the president joked to reporters that he had been “sandbagged.”
And, to the fourth-estate phalanx that protects the 80-year-old incumbent from any questions about his physical or mental deterioration, things were more than fine before that goshdarn bag of granular mineral particles got in his way.
The New York Times, ever ready to jump to the defense of a Democrat (provided the outlet isn’t impeding a more liberal Democrat in some way), described the commencement thusly: “Mr. Biden had just delivered an energetic speech to the Air Force graduates before helping to hand out the diplomas. He fell after he distributed the final diploma and was headed back to his seat.”
“Embarrassing moments are not uncommon for presidents, who spend much of their tenure in front of cameras. President Gerald Ford was repeatedly roasted by comedians for frequently tripping during his presidency,” Gotham’s paper of record dutifully explained before transitioning to a “But Trump!” moment: “President Donald J. Trump, a day before his 74th birthday in 2020, appeared slow and unsteady as he walked down a ramp from the stage after the West Point commencement ceremony, prompting online speculation about his health.”
And there was even a “Republicans pounce!” moment: “Republicans have seized on the president’s stumbles as evidence that he is unfit for office, and some were quick to point out Mr. Biden’s fall on Thursday,” the Times reported.
Actually, those darned “seizing” Republicans probably should have noted the more concerning moments that came before the fall, which did not speak to the kind of “energetic” performance the Times was advertising.
For instance, here’s the president being led around like a confused, dim cocker spaniel trying to be told where to sit in order to get a treat:
Well, at least that was an aberrant moment from an otherwise … oh wait, of course it wasn’t:
At least the speech itself went off without a hitch. I mean, aside from the hitches:
Do not disbelieve your lying eyes: Joe Biden is visibly in a steady, inexorable, slowly incapacitating decline. He needs to be led around like a dog on a leash and barks about as coherently as one when his mouth is open — no matter how “energetic” the yapping may be.
Thank God the president is physically OK after his fall. Then, pray to God we get a president who is mentally OK after the 2024 election. Or else America is going to be stumbling right along with him for another long four years.
Doctor Delivers Bad News to Biden After He Takes Terrible Tumble at Air Force Graduation
By Joe Saunders
June 4, 2023 at 1:08pm
With a background in medicine, the military, politics and the internal workings of the White House, Dr. Ronny Jackson understands the demands of the United States presidency better than most politicians or any pundit with an opinion on it.
So when the current Texas congressman and former White House physician under both Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump reacted to news of President Joe Biden’s embarrassing tumble Thursday at the United States Air Force Academy’s graduation ceremony, it was well worth paying attention to his words.
And those words delivered news that Biden and his Democratic supporters didn’t want to hear heading into a 2024 re-election campaign, which will put Biden’s increasingly advanced age under the unforgiving spotlight of a national campaign.
“I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but I’m just going to say it again: This man’s not fit mentally or physically to be our president,” Jackson told Fox News host Sean Hannity on Friday night.
“It’s just a bad situation for us.
“Part of the job of the president of the United States is to inspire confidence and to project power. And he’s not doing that. He can’t do that. He’s too old to do that,” Jackson told Hannity.
“And I just, I think it’s a shame that his … lack of physical ability and his physical decline is now starting to highlight the cognitive decline that we’ve been watching for so long now.
“And it’s a package that just doesn’t sell well around the world. And it’s becoming a national security issue for us. We have to do something about it.”
And that “something” is removing Biden from office. Barring some unforeseen, incredibly drastic event between now and January 2025, it’s unlikely Democrats will ever marshal the political strength to remove Biden prematurely via the 25th Amendment. And that leaves the 2024 presidential election — no matter who the Republican standard-bearer is.
That’s a whole lot of bad news for a doctor to deliver in one soundbite. But there’s really not any way an honest American can dispute it.
As even casual followers of the news have to know, the Air Force Academy stumble was far from Biden’s first in the public eye.
The stairs from the ground to the door of Air Force One are a particular hazard — he’s stumbled and fallen multiple times in one trip up; he’s stumbled and fallen a singular time during one trip up; he’s stumbled and almost fallen going up them.
He’s fallen from a stationary bike in front of news cameras.
None of this inspires confidence, of course. And for those who’ve had experience with aging loved ones or who are going through the difficulties of aging themselves, they should evoke alarm, as well as sympathy, regardless of politics.
In fact, the only time Biden projects powers is when he’s haranguing the country about the “ultra-MAGA” Americans who somehow represent a threat to the country the Founders established because they revere the Constitution the Founders wrote.
When it comes to the international stage, Biden is a walking example of weakness, a doddering, stiff-legged figure of fragility that epitomizes what the rivals and enemies of the United States see in the country — a hollow example of its former greatness.
As Jackson acknowledged when he said he hates to sound like a “broken record,” he’s made similar comments before, demanding Biden undergo a cognitive test to assure the American people he still has enough marbles in the bag to stay in the game.
Again, no honest observer — not even a liberal Democrat, if honesty can be found there — can dispute that Biden’s cognitive abilities are cause for concern.
His cognitive lapses — particularly calling out the name of Indiana Republic Rep. Jackie Walorski after he’d issued a written statement publicly lamenting Walorski’s death in a car accident — inspire even less confidence than his physical weakness.
Jackson might be repeating himself, but it’s only because the man in the White House has given him no reason to say anything differently.
As a man with a degree in medicine, who spent a career in the U.S. Navy before retiring with the rank of rear admiral, who has treated two presidents from two different political parties during their tenures in the White House, and now himself serves as a Republican member of the House of Representatives, Jackson has a view of leadership that’s different from almost any other American’s.
He also has a different view of the standard required for service in the Oval Office.
When Jackson says Biden doesn’t meet those standards, and when the overwhelming evidence available to the naked eye does nothing but indicate more and more that Jackson is right, even Democrats should be listening.
