Another misstep? Biden trips AGAIN on Air Force One stairs ahead of Jimmy Kimmel taping
'How about someone under the age of 70 for this job, is that possible,' a critic tweeted
President Joe Biden was once again captured on camera losing his balance on the stairs of Air Force One as he boarded the plane for a late-night comedy interview with Jimmy Kimmel. The commander-in-chief was climbing the steps while avoiding press questions before he appeared to fall on the steps of the flight to Los Angeles.
Additionally, in nearly four months, Biden has not sat down for an on-record interview with any journalist. Even after San Francisco’s woke District Attorney Chesa Boudin lost his job after the recall election, the 79-year-old just said: “I think the voters sent a clear message last night. Both parties have to step up and do something about crime, as well as gun violence.”

Also, for the Kimmel show, the White House has only permitted still cameras and has prohibited audio-recording devices and video cameras. Fox News White House Correspondent Jacqui Heinrich tweeted, “For the 2nd time this week, the WH will only allow still cameras into a Biden event - no video. Tonight, only stills for a spray of the Biden/Kimmel taping. Earlier this week, only stills were brought to the South Lawn for his mtg with Sen Murphy - TV was told about it afterward.”
Biden's latest trip-up comes almost a month after he was seen falling on the steps of Air Force One while taking the flight to Illinois. Also, in March last year, he reportedly fell frequently on the presidential aircraft’s stairs but at the time, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had said, “It’s pretty windy outside. It’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself.”
White House communications director Kate Bedingfield had shared on Twitter: “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.”

Besides, the president broke his foot in November 2020. At the time, he said, “I got out of the shower. I got a dog and anybody who’s been around my house knows — dropped, little pup dropped a ball in front of me. And for me to grab the ball.”
“I’m walking through this little alleyway to get to the bedroom. And I grabbed the ball like this and he ran. And I’m joking, running after him and grab his tail. And what happened was that he slid on a throw rug. And I tripped on the rug he slid on. That’s what happened,” he had added.
Meanwhile, the trip-up led to more criticism online. Someone tweeted, “How about someone under the age of 70 for this job, is that possible.” Another critic shared a short clip making fun of the president while writing: “Seems like a good time to retweet this one.” “They need one of those stair seat lift things on there,” a third suggested.

A tweet read: “Ever see Joe Biden speak off the cuff? It's like watching the Titanic sinking.” Another added: “No sure why a guy his age feels the need to run up the stairs anyway.”
