Guys. People lost their minds when Trump walked slowly down a ramp one time.
I don’t think the Biden stair stumble stuff should matter. But boy did the media set one hell of a precedent about presidential walking patterns.
And if you’ve forgotten, read on
Remember this very earnest and concerned @nytimes story (and video!)? Suggesting his “halting walk” “raises new health questions”??
I wonder if we’ll hear about how Biden is the oldest president when (if?) his stair story hits print.
And people picked this story up. This was a whole news cycle! Here’s @kylegriffin1 and @jaketapper sharing this story as if it were something that mattered.
I mean, cmon! @washingtonpost *fact checked* Trump’s claim that the stairs were slippery!
Are you kidding me?! @PhilipRucker @seungminkim
This wasn’t the first time Trump’s stair walking was a media cycle. You may remember in 2017, there was another scandal about Trump’s supposed fear of stairs.
@CNN had it as a chyron for a whole segment!
About whether Trump might be afraid of stairs!!
@CNN was of course all over #rampgate too.
@ChrisCillizza wrote an entire story about why the ramp mattered!
Slightly different tone this time! @CNN
Thankfully nothing gets past @atrupar
I mean ffs. @PoliticusSarah.
These people have no shame.
I mean Trump actually had to *defend himself* against these media allegations.
@Slate, no friend of the former president, even said so.
I mean not even kidding you @Forbes did a whole breakdown of the ramp situation AND how people were reacting to it.
Take a bow, @NYDailyNews
And the British press. Well. I don’t even know.
@BBCNews & @TheSun were dogged in their pursuit of whether Trump was, in fact, afraid of stairs.
Here’s former Nixon White House counsel @JohnWDean with some real blue anon nonsense. “Physically and mentally impaired” okay sure.
I’m so old I was a fan of a conservative “D” named Ronny. And Rove lies when he says Ronny was not conservative! Read HUAC 1947!
I remember a former”60 minute man” All American being smeared and besmirched by The Press(LSM today)
For those <77 he played offense and defense, the entire game! Hence 60 min!
2 time All American and Capt of Mich team!
American press has been leftist bigots for at least 78 years. Probably for 100 years!
For reference, idiot Biden’s 100% would be Trump’s 20%. Or less.
Has none of these people walked on a metal surface in dress shoes with leather soles? Hell, I slipped and busted my ass wearing Crocs on a sidewalk that had a metal covering of a hole after a rain. If you are on camera all the time, you make damn sure you don’t slip, trip or drop something (remember Rubio’s drink of water). EVERYTHING gets criticized (unless no one expects anything more of you THAT f**king up).
The sad thing is, the idiot Biden probably WAS being extra careful. That’s the best he can do. He’s played.
Well, we told you so.
Joe even turned the ramp walk by Trump into an ad making fun of how he walks when Joe runs.
A few times we’ve seen Joe break into a slow trot, looking more like a side effect of some drug mixture for his cognitive decline than athleticism.
This tripping on stairs happened, not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES before he finally got into the plane.
Not only is this serious, but it might become Joe’s puppet masters’ excuse for his cancelling his scheduled press conference next week.
We’ve been watching Joe’s decline speed up.
He used to be able to read, now he must have an ear bud.
He used to be able to talk off the cuff, now the feed gets cut when he even thinks about going off script, like asking “Nance” if he can take a few questions now.
Now we’re looking at a man who cannot manage to walk without assistance.
No amount of dangerous drug cocktail along with switching his internal clock so he “sundowns” at the right time for it anymore.
They’ve shot their best wad just getting him elected and signing all those EOs.
Bring on the drug-addled clown, Kamala.
Maybe the guy in his ear bud telling him, “Step up, left. Step up, right. Step up left. Step up right….” had to sneeze or cough.
The bottom line is, everyone KNEW this was the case. The rare occasions are not when he messes up; that is the NORM. It is rare when he DOESN’T screw up. Now, he can’t help getting old and decrepit but he can damn sure be held accountable for letting puppet masters put him and the nation in this dangerous, pathetic, embarrassing situation.
The Nations M.S. Media are total liars and fake the news you don’t need to be a Rocket Scientists to know that
the pedophile pres press secretary noted it was the wind?? look at all the photographs before, during and after. in the before photos, the hair is in place and the pleats in his suit coat do not move. after fall #1 hair in place and coat moved 2ed movement. unless the pedophile used a lot of hair spray that day his hair did not move. winds were 5-8 mph, allegedly, so the criminal would have to have been in a direct crosswind?? bogus.
@MOS #8541: He was also walking across the ramp like he was drunk, flat-footed steps. The guy’s just imcompetent.
