US president, Biden, falls on stage during graduation ceremony

United States President, Joe Biden, has fallen on stage while handing out diplomas at the Air Force Academy in Colorado.

The 80-year-old commander-in-chief stumbled and fell to his knees and then got back up during the graduation ceremony in an incident likely to spark more concerns about his age as the nation’s oldest president seeks a second term.

He walked away without help and appeared to point to a sandbag on the stage that he appeared to trip over.

It is just his latest stumble after he fell up the stairs while boarding Air Force One last year and toppled over on his bike near his Delaware beach house. He was not harmed in either incident.

A pool reporter traveling with the president to Colorado said Biden ‘was walking back to his seat when fell. He appeared to have tripped on a black sandbag on the stage.

The stumble comes just weeks after Biden stumbled while visiting the Itsukushima Shrine in Hiroshima, Japan.

During that event, there was a railing available on some stairs the president had to navigate down. He ignored the railing and fell.

It was three years ago when then-President Donald Trump appeared to struggle while walking down a ramp when delivering the commencement speech at West Point.

The fall comes in an race where Biden’s age has already become an issue. Biden would be 82 when he is sworn in if he wins a second term.

His chief rival, 76, former President Donald Trump, has repeatedly questioned Biden’s mental capacity.
