Many have raised concerns about his health and fitness for office. This latest incident follows a statement from White House physician Kevin O’Connor just last week, in which he claimed that Biden was “a healthy, vigorous 80-year-old male who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency, to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief.”
It is worth noting that this is not the first time Biden has experienced a mishap while ascending the steps to Air Force One. Two years ago, he reportedly fell multiple times while preparing to visit community leaders in Atlanta following an incident that occurred within the city. The incidents have sparked renewed discussions about Biden’s physical capabilities as President, with many eagerly awaiting updates on his condition.
