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.

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

on

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
