Joe Biden trips and falls not once but THREE times on the steps of Air Force One. Maybe that ridiculous face diaper impaired his vision? You know if this happened to “the other guy” the media would have lost it. pic.twitter.com/jgU76F224j— Tracey Shadwell 🍥 (@TraceyShadwell) March 19, 2021
Donald Trump has repeatedly highlighted Biden's physical and mental health, branding him "sleepy joe," ‘hiding’ in his basement during last year’s campaign.
Earlier this year, Former White House stenographer Mike McCormick estimated that Biden had suffered a 50 percent decline in his cognitive abilities over the past few years.
McCormick, who spent six years working with Biden while he was vice president, appeared on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast to discuss Biden's health in January.
Though 50 percent could be somewhat exaggerated, Biden's mental sharpness has become a cause for concern over recent years.
Earlier in March, a video emerged of Biden becoming visibly confused before asking; "what am I doing here?" during a speech.
Biden appeared to get lost while speaking at a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) vaccination facility in Houston, Texas on Friday.
