I was awfully young when Gerald Ford was president, so I’m not exactly old enough to remember how the media and comedians treated his accident-prone nature but I’ve seen how “Saturday Night Live” made it a running gag. I don’t think we’ve had a president that prone to physical gaffes — until now.
While Ford’s klutziness was the butt of jokes, these days, the media runs cover for Biden’s many physical mishaps. And there are definitely many of them to cover for. He trips up the stairs to Air Force One. He falls off a bicycle in front of reporters. He trips over a sandbag at the Air Force Academy.
We can laugh about incidents like these, but there’s a genuine concern for Biden because of his age. We’ve all encountered older people who took a bad fall that led to their death. That’s no laughing matter in any circumstance, but it’s even more concerning when the person we have to worry about is occupying the White House.
