Biden mocked for falling up stairs

The 78-year-old US President has only been in the job two months but already he’s being turned into a meme.

President Biden’s bad trip has become quite the meme drop on Twitter.

The 78-year-old Biden slipped on stairs while boarding air force One Friday, following in the temporarily unstable footsteps of President Gerald Ford.

But the commander in chief’s loose footing has let loose a firestorm of memes and jokes, marking, despite his other gaffes, his first meme as president.

And the jokes certainly didn’t fall flat.

Twitter’s constant commenter Chrissy Teigen weighed in, quipping: “We should all hope to one day trip on the way up to our personal jet.”

“Chair Force One,” tweeted gun rights advocate Kyle Kashuv, sharing a photoshopped image of the president sitting on an Easy Climber stair lift on the air force One staircase.

Other Twitter users similarly poked fun at the oldest person to assume the presidency.

Several others compared Biden’s tumble to previous famous falls. “Did Jennifer Lawrence possess Biden’s body momentarily there?” wrote one Twitter user, recalling the time the actress fell at the Oscars.

One account likened it to another popular meme that depicts a man falling down a flight of red-carpeted stairs — which, despite having been long debunked, users claim to be Jason DeRulo.

“No one is safe from the NFL’s rushing leader #Bidenfall,” wrote the Pro Football Network, sharing an image of Tennessee Titans player Derrick Henry seemingly rushing at Biden.

“OK OK it makes sense now,” tweeted one user, collaging together a clip of former President Donald Trump, 74, hitting a golf ball that lands on Biden’s head and causes the fall.

“Joe Biden vs Sasuke was the greatest anime battle,” tweeted one user with a composite photo of Biden and manga character Sasuke Uchiha.

Others connected the stumble with the fact that Instagram briefly went down on Friday.

“Me heading over to Twitter to see if Instagram is down for everyone,” one user wrote, illustrating the struggle with raw footage of Biden’s butterfeet.

Some Twitter users, however, have taken over #BidenFall to show support for the president.

“#BidenFall is trending so a reminder that under Biden deaths have fallen each week and we just hit 100M vaccination shots,” human rights lawyer Qasim Rashid tweeted.

“The story ain’t about President Biden tripping as he entered air force One. It’s about how quickly he got back up,” tweeted DNC adviser Scott Dworkin.

The White House blamed the weather for the incident.

“It’s pretty windy outside. It’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself,” White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters.
