White House Blames ‘Wind’ For Biden Falling Repeatedly On Staircase

White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre suggested that he fell because “it’s very windy”

After President Biden stumbled multiple times while attempting to climb up the staircase to Airforce One, White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre suggested that he fell because “it’s very windy.”

“It’s pretty windy outside,” Jean-Pierre said after the incident, reports the New York Times. “It’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself. He is doing 100 percent fine.”

According to a tweet from White House Communications Director Kate Beddingfield, Biden was not injured during the incident.
“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,” she said. “Nothing more than a misstep on the stairs.”

 

Last September, Biden mocked then-President Trump for walking slowly down a ramp, saying at the time, “Watch how I run up ramps and he stumbles down ramps. OK? Come on,” Biden said last September.

Trump, who, in contrast to Biden, was able to successfully finish the descent without falling even once, defended slow pace in a tweet after the event.
“The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery,”
Trump wrote. “The last thing I was going to do is ‘fall’ for the Fake News to have fun with. Final ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!”

    Biden is 78 and in bad mental and physical health. His puppeteers control his day. His lackey’s gloss over his gaffe’s. He delegates to Kamala to get things done. He’s kept from ever saying or doing anything that’s spontaneous.

    So Let me see if I got this right Biden is a lean mean fighting machine (threatens to take Trump out behind the Gym) he could run up and down t a slippery ramp with no hand rails but can’t climb up a set of stairs with handrails and then they blame it on the with “Come on man” is this guy stupid or what

    The “wind” surrounding feeble Gas Bag Biden was of his own making. Once…a misstep…but three times…c’mon man!

    Biden operates at half the speed of Donal J Trump 100% of the time! That’s physically, it would be hard to get Sleepy Joe up to 50 points cognitively!

    I feel bad for Plugs- he’s an elderly man showing his age. There’s many 78 yr olds that are “younger” than he is. He never should’ve tried trotting up those steps. Take your time, Joe, and don’t give anyone fodder for your missteps.

    Leo, I’ll be surprised if he lasts until June. I’m thinking Kamala takes over this June.
    Bet we don’t see him climbing and exiting Air Force 1 without an escort in the future.
    Oh how we need President Trump .
    Love your comments here and on TV.

POLL: Huge One Year Swing of Independent Voters Saying Government ‘Doing too Much’

Published

White House

What a difference a year can make. Particularly a year filled with government infringements and overreaching. In a Gallup poll released Thursday, findings show Americans have drastically shifted perspective on how much they want the government involved in their lives.

Gallup News tweeted the results along with the headline “Americans again favor a reduced government role in solving problems facing the country after supporting a more active government role last year.”

52% percent of those polled say the government is doing too much on issues that should be dealt with by businesses and individuals. Only 43% say the government needs to do more to address citizens’ problems.

The numbers have almost flopped from only one year ago when 54% said the government should be doing more, and 41% disagreed. The annual Gallup Governance survey was conducted September 1-17.

The Gallup Poll release stated “the shift toward favoring a more active government role in 2020 was seen among Democrats and independents but not Republicans — likely a response to the coronavirus pandemic and in particular to then-President Donald Trump’s approach to handling it.”

“Trump generally opposed government efforts designed to slow the spread of the virus, such as face mask requirements and business and school closures.” The poll found independent voters shifted their opinions greatly.

“The percentage of independents who said the government’s doing too many things jumped from 38% in 2020 to 57% this year. Republicans edged up from 74% to 80% and Democrats crept up from 13% to 18%.”

Gallup also highlighted the fact that 2020 was only the second time in the poll’s 29 years of asking about the role of government that at least half of Americans supported an active role for government. The first time occurred in 2001 in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Former Obama Ethics Chief Slams Psaki Over Dismissing Questions On Hunter Biden

Published

Walter Shaub

Walter Shaub, the former head of the federal government’s ethics office under President Barack Obama, slammed White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday in response to her dismissal of questions about whether the identity of buyers for Hunter Biden’s art would stay anonymous.

“At least five prints of Hunter Biden’s artwork have already been sold for $75,000 each and a team of lawyers is vetting potential patrons who plan to attend his upcoming gallery show in New York City — which has now been delayed until the spring,” The New York Post reported last week. “It’s unclear who purchased the reproductions — which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece by President Biden’s scandal-scarred son — or if any more were sold after the LA show opened.”

During Tuesday’s press briefing, Psaki told a reporter asking about the anonymity of the buyers of Hunter Biden’s art, “I know this is your favorite topic, but it, again — it still is the purview of the gallerist. We still do not know and will not know who purchases any paintings. And the President remains proud of his son.”

 

“These are legitimate questions,” Shaub said in response to Psaki’s comments. “It’s disappointing to hear [Psaki] send a message that the WH thinks the public has no right to ask about ethics. After the last 4 years, these questions have never been more important. I know this isn’t a popular opinion, but this stuff matters.”

“There is no ethics program in the world that can be built around the head of state’s staff working with a dealer to keep the public in the dark about the identities of individuals who pay vast sums to the leader’s family member for subjectively priced items of no intrinsic value,” Shaub tweeted Wednesday. “If this were Trump, Xi [Jinping] or [Vladimir] Putin, you’d have no doubt whatsoever that this creates a vehicle for funneling cash to the first family in exchange for access or favors. Nor would you doubt that the appearance of monetizing the presidency was outrageous.”
