Air Force One Gremlin Strikes Again

On September 26th, the Air Force One Gremlin struck President Biden yet again. Reaching its arm up, it grabbed his ankle and prevented him from making a smooth exit down the short stairs from Air Force One.

At least, that’s the only answer most leftists will offer for such a slip.

Somehow, the president was able to catch himself and avoid smashing the back of his head on the metal stairs or tumbling down them. This was yet another embarrassment to the American people, and it went hand in hand with a report for leftist media darlings Axios that was issued earlier the same day.

According to the report, since November 2021, Biden has been going through frequent physical therapy to fix his sense of balance. While this might not be a big deal for the average person, being President has relevance to it. As Axios said, “Why it matters: Democrats, including some in the administration, are terrified that Biden will have a bad fall — with a nightmare scenario of it happening in the weeks before the November 2024 election.”

The article also described the president’s recent draw towards sneakers and how it wasn’t the most presidential look or the view we should expect in healthy politicians. Naturally, leftists made fun of the article instantly. White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates wrote on X (aka Twitter), “Move over, tan suit! Can confirm: @POTUS is one of the millions of Americans with sneakers. Notice that when others do the same, the media’s tone is different. ‘As sneakers take over the workplace, the fashion phenomenon is making its way to Congress’”

As funny as it is that they mocked the article just for Biden to fall yet again, it’s time someone does something about that gremlin. Maybe we need to get him an airbag suit so he can safely fall? Or let him take the emergency slide out every trip so he falls on purpose? No matter the answer, it’s still embarrassing, just like a President falling down the stairs every other week.
