Yet more questions concerning President Joe Biden’s health emerged this week after a viral video showed him tripping on the stairs leading up to Air Force One.
According to Breitbart, the incident occurred in Poland on Wednesday after he gave a speech meant to rally more support for Ukraine.

This is not the first time that Biden has had difficulty getting to Air Force One, as in 2021 he fell three times while ascending the stairs. Breitbart noted that in both cases, the White House blamed Biden’s unsteady footing on windy conditions.

“It’s pretty windy outside, it’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself. He is doing 100% fine,” Breitbart quoted White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre as telling reporters.

This week’s latest tumble came after White House physician Kevin O’Connor offered a glowing report about Biden, declaring him to be “healthy” and “vigorous.”
That assessment didn’t sit right with former White House physician and current Texas Republican Rep. Ronnie Jackson, who says the president’s real condition is being covered up.
Former White House doctor: Biden “is in total decline”
“The majority of Americans can see that Biden’s mental health is in total decline, yet there is no transparency from the White House on what’s going on, if anything, to address this issue and his inability to do his job,” Jackson told Fox News last Friday.
“Yesterday’s written physical exam report released by Biden’s physician, Kevin O’Connor, further confirms that this administration is still adamant about concealing the truth,” he continued.
“Nowhere in the report was there mention of Biden’s deteriorating mental health,” the Republican lawmaker went on to complain.
“This is alarming, considering I have already sent three letters to the White House demanding that Biden receive a cognitive test and that the results be made public, all of which have been ignored. Everyone can see something is wrong — the cover-up needs to end,” Jackson concluded.
