Biden Needs A Wheelchair


Biden might really need a wheelchair moving forward to avoid accidents.

President Joe Biden encountered a stumbling incident while boarding Air Force One, coinciding with concerns raised about the presence of “watch your step” signs on the plane’s stairs. Members of the press pool accompanying the president documented the event as he departed Helsinki on Thursday, bidding farewell to Finnish officials and proceeding up the stairs without entertaining questions from the media. According to the report, Biden appeared to stumble slightly halfway up the stairs but continued walking. He then turned to wave to the staff on the tarmac before entering the aircraft.

According to Newsweek, This recent stumble adds to previous instances that have drawn attention. During his first term, just two months after his inauguration in 2021, a viral video showed Biden facing difficulty while ascending the Air Force One stairs. The footage depicted him falling three times while attempting to board the plane. The White House attributed the falls to strong wind conditions. Additionally, in February, Biden stumbled on the plane stairs as he departed Warsaw, Poland, following an unexpected meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.


Another notable incident occurred last month during the commencement ceremony at the Air Force Academy in Colorado. Biden, while delivering a speech and presenting diplomas to Air Force graduates, appeared to trip and fall onto his hands and knees on stage. Security personnel swiftly aided him, and the White House later clarified that he was unharmed, attributing the fall to a sandbag left on the stage.

Given Biden’s age and past incidents, questions have emerged regarding his physical fitness. If reelected in 2024, he would be 82 at the start of his second term, making him the oldest president in U.S. history. Consequently, when a “watch your step” sign was observed on the stairs of Air Force One during Biden’s arrival in the U.K. last Sunday, some speculated whether it was specifically added for the president. However, an airport spokesperson informed Newsweek that the signs were provided by the United States Air Force, as opposed to being arranged by Stansted Airport where the incident occurred.
