U.S. President Joe Biden’s fall on stage sparks a fresh meme fest

President Biden tripped and fell after delivering a speech and handing out diplomas to graduates of the Air Force Academy in Colorado on June 2.

Footage showing Joe Biden appearing to trip over a sandbag and falling to the ground at a US air force academy graduation ceremony has gone viral on social media.

It happened after Biden shook the hands of more than 900 graduates, and as he turned to head back to his seat, and started to motion as if he were going to jog. He then appeared to trip and fell down on the stage.

Biden, 80, was helped up by two Secret Service agents and an Air Force official, and he then turned and pointed to something onstage that he might have tripped over. And he walked back to his seat unassisted.

The White House communications director, Ben LaBolt, tweeted: ‘He’s fine. There was a sandbag on stage while he was shaking hands.”


And alas, the incident has sparked a meme fest on social media timelines as the keyboard warriors never spare anyone.

For them, it’s all about the ‘Most powerful man in the world’ vs a sandbag!
