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

    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.

Biden’s Energy Secretary Violated Stock Disclosure Laws 9 Times Last Year

A spokeswoman for Granholm said that the late disclosures were the fault of a “clerical error”

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm sold shares of stock 9 times last year between April to October, but did not disclose the sales “within the legally required 45-day window, according to federal disclosure documents”, reports CNBC.

The shares of stock were worth up to $240,000. A spokeswoman for Granholm blamed a “clerical error” saying the secretary paid a late filing fee. Granholm did not file any of the 9 disclosures until December after legal deadlines for all had passed.

The STOCK Act has been in place since 2012, which “expanded the accountability and reporting requirements for financial holdings, both for members of Congress and high-level employees of the Executive Branch like Granholm” reports CNBC.

“The news of Granholm’s apparent violations comes at a time when stock sales by public officials and members of Congress are getting a fresh look” reports CNBC. “During the past week, several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have introduced or reintroduced legislation that would effectively ban lawmakers and their immediate family members from actively trading stocks while the member is in office.”

According to an analysis by Business Insider’s Dave Levinthal published earlier this month, a total of 54 members of Congress violated the STOCK Act rules just last year alone.

CNBC reports on the suspicious behavior of Granholm:

When President Joe Biden nominated her to be his energy secretary, Granholm signed a detailed Ethics Agreement in which she agreed to give up part-time jobs at the University of California and at CNN, step down from several boards, and sell millions of dollars worth of stock.

On March 22, she reported 23 stock sales, many of them blue-chip companies she had more than $10,000 of shares in.

A few months later in May, Granholm filed more transaction reports detailing how she had exercised stock options in the electric bus and battery company Proterra and then sold all her shares, worth between $1 million and $5 million, on May 24.

But in between the March blue chip sales and the May Proterra sale, Granholm made 6 of the 9 stock sales that didn’t get disclosed until December.

Trump Says Reports On A Conflict With DeSantis Are ‘Fake News’

Published

Ron DeSantis

During a Fox News interview on Thursday, former President Donald Trump shot down recent reports claiming that there were rising tensions between the former president and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, saying it was “fake news” and that DeSantis has “done a really terrific job in Florida.”

Trump’s comments came in response to an article from The New York Times claiming that Trump had a “long-stewing resentment” toward DeSantis.

“For months, former President Donald J. Trump has been grumbling quietly to friends and visitors to his Palm Beach mansion about a rival Republican power center in another Florida mansion, some 400 miles to the north,” The New York Times wrote. “Gov. Ron DeSantis, a man Mr. Trump believes he put on the map, has been acting far less like an acolyte and more like a future competitor, Mr. Trump complains. With his stock rising fast in the party, the governor has conspicuously refrained from saying he would stand aside if Mr. Trump runs for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.”

Hannity said that he was recently told that DeSantis does not think there has been “any conflict or bickering” between the two and that the report was “total BS” from the mainstream media.

“Is he right?” Hannity asked.

“Well, he is right,” Trump responded. “I get along great with Ron. Ron was very good on the Mueller hoax. He was right up front along with Jim Jordan, and all of the rest of them, they were fantastic. The Republicans really stuck together. And it was a great thing. And Ron was one of them. And Ron wanted to run and I endorsed him. And that helped him greatly.”

“And he went on and he’s done a really terrific job in Florida, and I think you know, Ron has been very good,” Trump continued. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. It’s totally fake news. I think Ron said last week, he said it very publicly, he says the press is never going to get in the middle of my friendship with Donald Trump, we’re not going to do that stuff. And he said it very strongly, I thought it was very interesting, actually. And very nice. But he said that, and I agree with him on that 100%. No, I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to have it for a long time.”
