WASHINGTON, DC – Joe Biden was able to recreate his infamous tripping up the stairs routine earlier in June, managing to have a slight trip-up while boarding Air Force One.
Most everyone remembers Biden’s three-piece trip-up that occurred back in March of 2021, where he fell three times while attempting to board Air Force One while at Joint Base Andrews. At the time of the infamous missteps, an aide to Biden claimed that it was windy when Biden was boarding the plane, thus likely causing him to fall down three time when faced with the difficult task of climbing some stairs.
Come June 8th, Biden seems to be up to his old two-left-feet conundrum again, with even MSNBC anchor Kristen Welker remarking on his stumble when boarding Air Force One.
“It appears as though the president did have a slight trip there as he’s boarding Air Force One.”
Matters such as Biden’s panache for falling up the stairs, as well as numerous gaffes and seemingly incoherent ramblings, has served as fodder for some to raise concerns about Biden’s physical and mental health/stability.
This past February, 38 Republicans called for the 79-year-old president to undergo cognitive testing to ascertain whether he’s mentally fit to hold the nation’s highest office.
Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson, who served as the physician to the president under both the Obama and Trump administrations and was a White House Medical Unit physician under the Bush administration, drafted a letter signed by 37 of his colleagues that expressed this concern about Biden’s mental well-being.
Speaking to Fox News about the endeavor this past February, Rep. Jackson explained, “As a former physician to three Presidents of the United States, I know what it takes mentally and physically to execute the duties of Commander-in-Chief and Head of State. Joe Biden has continually proven to me and to the world that something isn’t right. The American people deserve to have absolute confidence in their President’s cognitive ability.”
Rep. Jackson firmly believes that Biden willingly taking a “cognitive test will be an important first step” to ensuring Americans that he is mentally fit for office, if that is indeed the case. However, if a cognitive test presents evidence of something awry, the test will be key “in identifying and properly treating symptoms of impairment that are consistent with a variety of cognitive diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Parkinson’s, or multiple sclerosis.”
The Republican Congressman added that, “This is not a partisan issue. When I discussed taking a cognitive test with President Trump, he was eager to assure the American people and to put the fake news media’s stories to bed. Why won’t President Biden do the same?”
Rep. Jackson says that with Biden avoiding cognitive testing, people are naturally going to “assume the worst” regarding his mental stability, and that Democrats should be on board considering they set the “standard” when demanding such of Trump while he was in office.
