Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro took to social media to mock President Joe Biden's fall as he walked up the stairs to the Air Force One to take a flight to Atlanta. The 78-year-old President stumbled, and then latched on to the railing, steadied himself, and continued climbing up the stairs.

However, Biden lost his footing again and ended up stumbling for a second and third time. On his third stumble, Biden fell to his knees, but quickly got back up, went up the stairs, and gave a salute at the top before disappearing into the aircraft. Biden's fall ended up trending as Republicans and conservatives, including Donald Trump Jr, took to mocking the President for his fall.

Biden's fall happened when he was on his way to Georgia. According to his schedule, he is supposed to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for an update on the coronavirus pandemic — and will also meet with Asian-American community leaders after the horrific spa shooting in the Atlanta area that killed eight people.

Shapiro was one of the many conservative commentators who took to social media to comment on Biden's fall. Shapiro tweeted, "I have been reliably informed it is simply impossible to do comedy about Biden." He continued, "Remember, Gerald Ford, an all-American football player was a lummox; and Bob Dole, a wounded war hero, was an elderly klutz (he was 73 in 1996, while Biden is now 78). But there is nothing to see here."

He also added, "And remember, Biden is the type of fellow who routinely challenges people to contests of physical strength (he did so to constituents on the campaign trail as well as to Trump) while the media mocked Trump for walking slowly down a ramp and holding a glass with two hands."

However, Shapiro's comments were met with criticism, as one user tweeted, "Oh Ben, you wouldn’t know comedy if someone pulled a rubber chicken out your ass." Another tweeted, "Accidents happen. And he's wearing dress shoes while walking up carpeted stairs. The way he got up after catching himself shows he's spry. He never let go of the rail. Don't poke fun just to poke fun it's mean bro."

Others took to defending Biden, with one user tweeting, "He didn't skip a beat, got right up and saluted! That is the sign of strength, not weakness so go ahead and have your laugh, I really don't think Biden cares and neither do I. The only reason the orange Jabba the Hutt didn't fall is he was hand held down the ramp. That is Funny." Another opined, "I'm inclined to think that this clumsy old fellow is way preferable to the old racist whose incompetence got hundreds of thousands killed, but I guess that our ethics differ on that."
