(AmericanProsperity.com) – US President Joe Biden tripped and fell on Thursday during a US Air Force Academy commencement ceremony. Following the incident, which immediately became viral, the White House announced that the commander-in-chief didn’t suffer any injury. It also explained that the president fell because he tripped over a sandbag.
Earlier in the day, President Biden delivered a commencement address at the Air Force Academy focused on the graduating cadets. The president explained the importance of their duty and their commitment to the country.
Following the incident, White House communications director Ben LaBolt wrote on his Twitter account that President Biden was doing well. He also explained he simply tripped over “a sandbag on stage” while he was greeting the public and shaking hands.
This latest incident comes two years after President Biden suffered a similar situation at Joint Base Andrews. This one took place in March 2021 when the president fell on the steps while he was boarding Air Force One.
This was a delicate moment for the president not only because it became viral but also because it delivered a weak image. While many have said his age is an issue, this incident raised concerns about his health, with social media users and political analysts claiming he’s too old.
However, the White House said right after this incident at Joint Base Andrews that the commander-in-chief was “doing 100 percent fine.” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre even blamed the windy conditions, as she claimed that everyone would have fallen under that weather.
According to recent polls, the vast majority of American voters are deeply concerned about President Biden’s age. Some political leaders from the Democratic Party and the Republican Party have also voiced their concerns about his situation. The latest cases were the ones of former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
