A growing number of Americans continue to be concerned about Joe Biden’s suitability to remain president.
Friday’s video posted by the Research arm of the Republican National Committee appears to show Biden bumping his head as he departs the Marine One helicopter. As is customary for the commander-in-chief, he also neglected to return the salute of the Marine stationed at the exit.

“Biden bumps his head as he gets off Marine One, then tells reporters he ‘got sandbagged’ yesterday at the U.S. Air Force Academy graduation,” the RNC Research post that included the video said.
It is unclear whether the president truly hit his head, but a few seconds later he appears to rub the back of his head.
A day earlier, a video of Biden speaking at the academy’s commencement shows him tripping and falling on stage, which he subsequently blamed on a nearby sandbag.

During a campaign speech in Iowa, Trump was informed of Biden’s gaffe, but he refrained from mocking Biden and instead made a self-deprecating jest.
“He fell down? Well, I hope he wasn’t hurt,” Trump said upon hearing the news. “The whole thing is crazy, you gotta be careful about that, you gotta be careful about that because you don’t want that.”
“Even if you have to tip-toe down a ramp,” he added, appearing to reference a June 2020 West Point commencement speech he gave, after which a video showed him walking gingerly down a ramp. Trump later explained that the ramp was wet and he was wearing slick-soled leather shoes.
During a visit to Hiroshima, Japan late last month, Biden nearly fell face-first after stumbling while descending a flight of stairs.
“A confused-looking President Biden had to be gently guided by Japanese leader Fumio Kishida on Friday — before tripping and almost falling down some stairs,” the New York Post reported.
The report continued:
As first lady Jill Biden led him by the hand to meet his Japanese counterpart and his wife for a photo op in Hiroshima prior to the Group of Seven summit, the oldest US president ever appeared perplexed.
After shaking Kishida’s hand, Biden, 80, turned his attention to the prime minister’s 58-year-old wife, Fumio Kishida, and inexplicably assumed a boxer’s stance before shaking her hand as well.

Kishida, 65, proceeded to direct the dignitaries to their designated positions for a photo session. Sensing Biden’s apparent confusion about where to stand, Kishida appeared to politely intervene and guide him to his designated spot. Biden shuffled slowly, appearing uncertain, while looking down at the ground, seeking clarity on his positioning, according to the video. CONTINUE READING…
