New questions over Biden's health as the president, 78, stumbles multiple times up the stairs of Air Force One before falling down: Recovers to give a salute before flying to Atlanta

The President recovered and kept going but quickly lost his footing again

  • President Biden fell as he climbed up the stairs of Air Force One on Friday morning at Joint Base Andrews 
  • The President stumbled multiple times, clinging on to the railing, then he fell to his knees 
  • He got back up and carried on climbing before giving a salute at the top then vanishing into the aircraft 
  • Biden has long faced questions over his health; he regularly mixes up names and titles 
  • On Thursday, he referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as 'President Harris' 
  • The fall is the latest in a string of incidents which raise concerns over the President's health and ability to lead
  • It also comes at a moment of heightened tensions between the US, Russia and NA  
  • Until recently, the President was walking in a boot after breaking his foot while playing with his dog Major 
  • Biden, 78, is the oldest President in history; Ronald Reagan was 77 when he left office and he was 69 when he was elected 
  • Trump was 70 when elected and was 74 when he left office earlier this year  

President Joe Biden stumbled multiple times then fell to his knees as he climbed the steps of Air Force One on Friday in the latest of a string of incidents which raise concerns over his health. 

Biden, 78, was boarding the aircraft at Joint Base Andrews just before noon for a flight to Atlanta when he stumbled. He gripped on to the railing, steadied himself and kept going but lost his footing a second time and then a third.

On the third trip, he fell to his knees. He got back up then carried on up the stairs before giving a salute at the top then disappearing into the aircraft. 

Once on the plane, White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters that he was '100 percent fine' and was preparing for his trip in Atlanta. 

'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,' White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield tweeted afterwards.  

A White House pool report was issued by the reporters traveling with Biden within seconds of the fall but it was not covered extensively by major news networks for around 30 minutes after it happened.  

Republicans including Donald Trump Jr. say the gentle media coverage of the fall is another example of the 'mainstream media' giving Biden the soft treatment after hammering President Trump for four years.

The fall is also the latest in a string of incidents which raise concern over the President's health and comes a day after he  referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as 'President Harris'. 

Earlier this week, Biden also engaged in a bitter stand-off with Russian President Vladimir Putin which ended with Putin wishing him 'good health' and withdrawing an envoy to the US which puts the relationship between the two countries in perilous territory.

Biden called Putin a 'killer' in an interview earlier this week and also said he will 'pay a price' for Russia trying to meddle in the 2016 election. 

The White House and Biden's camp routinely play down concerns about his health and insist he is fit to lead. 

Biden is the oldest President in history; Ronald Reagan was 77 when he left office and he was 69 when he was elected

Trump was 70 when elected and was 74 when he left office earlier this year. 

Throughout his campaign, Biden fought off Trump's nickname for him - Sleepy Joe. He also poked fun at Trump's health once or twice. 

In September 2020, when Trump slipped on a wet ramp, Biden, in retaliation for the Sleepy Joe comments, said: 'Look at how he steps and look at how I step...Watch how I run up ramps and he stumbles down ramps. OK? Come on.'

Donald Trump Jr. said it was \'no wonder\' the US was being attacked by \'enemies\' Russia and China when Biden\'s health is in question

Until recently, Biden was walking in a boot after breaking his foot while playing with his dog, Major, in November. 

His doctor at the time said he was otherwise in good health. 

In December 2019, there were concerns over Biden's health, in particular leading up to the 2020 election. 

He released medical records which showed he has an irregular heartbeat and high cholesterol, but which described him as a 'healthy, vigorous 77-year-old. '

Some experts questioned whether or not he was as healthy as he claimed.

President Obama's personal doctor was among them.  

'He’s not a healthy guy. 

'He’s not in bad shape for his age, but I wouldn't say he’s in outstanding health. 

'Could I guarantee he won't have issues for the next four years? 

'He has a lot of issues that are just sort of sitting there,' he told The Washington Examiner at the time. 

Concerns over Biden's health have also extended to questions of his cognitive health. 

Days before the election, he became confused when introducing is granddaughter Natalie at an event, and instead referred to her as 'my son Beau'. 

Beau Biden died in 2015 after battling a brain tumor. 

The President also has a grandson called Beau, who is the son Hunter Biden and his new wife. 

The baby is 11 months old. 

Biden and Harris are flying to Atlanta to meet with members of the Asian community after Tuesday's shootings at three massage parlors. 

They had already planned the trip, to meet with failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, before the shootings.

Id she become president she will carry the white agenda, all those niggers are born to serve white people, they take orders from white people and wont make decisions unless white people tell them to. Just like when Obama was president every one excuse waa he could not do for black people because the white folks wouldnt let him, but he had the power to take executive orders like every presidents.

When congress told Bush not to go to war, he said the hell with them, he went to war and a lot of young college kids were dying coming back in body bags, he was giving green cards to any one who signed for the army, almost every policies Trump passed he took executive orders, he even went against his own party, niggers are born to be weak nothing great will come out, that b**** will male more black people suffer if she become president, nothing new

Well, Biden already said president Harris, so I am sticking to my prediction of Biden doing three years then handing it over to Harris.

stephen myers you just a dum slave n***** who loves your master so much and have to be loyal, lazy niggers like you wont fight or stand up to anything so you can get hands, biden is your god he sent $1400 he is a good massa, never mind how many black families he destroyed while in office for over 50 years.

Why dont you list the things democrats have done for the black community for the past decades, dont tell me about Trump he is no longer in office, 85% of you niggers help vote Trump out of office but 25% of you cannot get a whote cop convicted for murder, so go on educate us you old n*****, lets hear it from you

Sorry for your loss you Black Trumpturds......

Comment by mr1stroke on March 20, 2021 at 5:39pm

Tyrone you have to laugh about it, you can't be sorry or help the retarded negros, you cant even make suggestions, if you male a decisions that is different from theirs just because they disagree they want your head on a platter.

Those idiots are too busy listening and following Al Sharpton and Steve who are selling the community for Tv and Radio shows, taking chump change from the politicians along with the negro pastors. That community is so retarded they love their masters, they will vote for any one they tell them to.

So lets do the history, when the last time the black community picked and chose a candidate of their own and what did they know about that candidate? Every candidate they vote for they are told to vote by either their negro leaders, pastors or those white racists democrats.

They are so stupid Biden said if they voted for Trump and did not vote for him they are not black, lol if this is not the most racist insult from the most racist politician i dont know what is, biden is telling them when to be black and how to be black because they cannot think for their selves, they are so desperate and dumb they believe it without questions, the democrats throw the biggest distraction in the making for years at the retarded negro community, they ran a campaign telling them Trump is racist, name one of them who questioned people like Nancy Pelosi to ask them how different are they from Trump? The same person who renewed Daca laws over and over who passed transgender laws over and over while they skip the dumb niggers, now they are about to pass laws for the Asians because they have their own hate crimes squad , that community is a waste i am through feeling sorry for them, they deserve to live like slaves

This is the guy the sheeple selected as their leader.  The guy can't form a sentence, he has yet to make a nation's address and now this; he can't even walk up a flight of stairs.  Not to mention, over the last 30 years there were numerous allegations of him being a pedophile, a racist, passing laws that incarcerated hundreds of thousands of black men, but the only platform he ran on was "Trump's a racist".  I got news for black people, they all racist.

Sheldine Forde dont ever stop doing what you do or be who you are, just like the flood of Noah many shall stand and watch it sweep, so yes it will repeat in the worse way as we know the prophecy must stay true. I told a sister last night on twitter ill be the first to stand with essential workers, those they do not consider as first responders, society choose who to praise and how to translate and consider who is who, this how 90% of the public is stupid, any obe who was out there during the pandemic providing their services to the helpless are first responders, and this is who we should stand for.

Comment by Sheldine Forde on March 20, 2021 at 11:27am
Mr1stroke you ain't never lie when u say they will not march for us, but one thing is sure, that fog u spoke of will definitely come back. Hell some of these states covid cases are rising again. As for the money we didn't get, it's o.k they can keep it, I only hope essential workers are around again to assist, because a lot of them are tapping out as they should. Nobody wants to deal with this pandemic everyday with no end date in sight. F the government. God is the source of my supply.
Comment by mr1stroke on March 20, 2021 at 9:27am

Sheldine Forde and this is what you get some times as reward for doing good deeds, do you see the public rallying behind essential workers like they do for nonsense?they are sure enjoying that stimulus money, but dont worry the fog will come again and let see what they will do or how they will survive it

Comment by Sheldine Forde on March 20, 2021 at 8:40am
Good for his ass, he should have given essential workers their share of money. We have been out here since the beginning of the pandemic, and still out there, with not a cent from the gov't. We were out there when everyone else was home, because we had no f ing choice. They claimed we were heroes, but we got treated like zeros. Stimulus package, after stimulus package, there was nothing for us, only the unemployed, who got to stay home safely. Next time, I hope he breaks his neck. F er
