Biden takes tumble on stage at Air Force Academy

President Joe Biden took a face-first tumble on Thursday after tripping over an obstacle on stage at the Air Force Academy in Colorado, but he appeared unhurt - and joked about it later.

COLORADO – United States of America’s President Joe Biden had a brief stumble on Thursday during an event at the Air Force Academy in Colorado.

The incident occurred after the 80-year-old president had delivered a commencement address to the graduates of the prestigious military academy.

Although he tripped over an obstacle on stage, Biden appeared to be unhurt and even managed to make a lighthearted joke about the incident.

As Bide-n was walking back to his seat after shaking hands with a cadet, he unexpectedly fell.

Air Force personnel quickly rushed to his aid and helped him back up.

Fortunately, it seemed that the President did not require further assistance or medical attention.

Upon getting back on his feet, Biden pointed to a small black sandbag on the stage, which appeared to be the object that had caused him to stumble.

White House Communications Director Ben LaBolt addressed the incident on Twitter, assuring concerned citizens that the President was fine.

LaBolt explained, “There was a sandbag on stage while he was shaking hands.”

Biden shares dry jokes after tripping on stage

Later in the day, as Biden was returning to the White House on Air Force One and Marine One, he encountered another stroke of bad luck.

While exiting the helicopter, he accidentally bumped his head. Despite this additional mishap, the President showed no signs of injury as he walked across the South Lawn.

Biden even quipped to reporters, “I got sandbagged,” displaying his characteristic sense of humour in the face of adversity.

President Biden, currently the oldest person to hold the presidency, is seeking a second term in the upcoming 2024 election.

His official doctor’s report earlier this year affirmed his physical fitness and regular exercise routine, highlighting his overall health and well-being.

This is not the first time Biden has faced a physical mishap during his time in office.

In November 2020, shortly after his election victory over then-incumbent President Donald Trump, Biden broke his foot while playing with his pet dog.

As the President continues his duties and campaigns for re-election, his resilience and ability to find humor in challenging situations serve as a testament to his determination and unwavering spirit.
