The White House and pro-Biden corporate media have placed the blame for President Joe Biden’s repeated tumbles while attempting to climb the stairs of Air Force One this Friday on wind gusts. Data shows the wind at Joint Base Andrews did not meet the hurricane-force speed threshold required to knock a fully grown adult off their feet, and in fact did not exceed 30 miles per hour.
“It’s pretty windy outside. It’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself. He is doing 100 percent,” White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean–Pierre stated in an attempt explain why the leader of the free world fell repeatedly while ascending the staircase to Air Force One.
The National Weather Service logged the wind speed at Andrews Air Force Base on Friday at 14 miles per hour, while data from WillyWeather shows a peak of 21.9 miles per hour throughout the day, and speeds of under 20 miles per hour at the time of Biden’s falls.

Weather Channel meterologists have that the wind force required to knock a person weighing 100 pounds – significantly lighter than Joe Biden – off their feet would require speeds of at least 40-45 miles per hour.
National File reported on Biden’s multiple falls while attempting to board Air Force One earlier this Friday:
Joe Biden fell this morning while walking up stairs to enter Air Force One. Multiple photos captured the moment the 78-year-old American president lost his footing and fell about halfway up the stairs.
Doug Mills, a reporter for the New York Times, writes “POTUS stumbles as he walks up the steps of Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews, Md, for a trip to Atlanta.” However, other outlets reported it as a fall.
The Insider Paper uploaded a photo of Biden’s left leg clearly falling to the ground as he attempted to remain upright by grasping the handrail. “Biden just stumbled and fell when walking up the stairs of Air Force One,” they wrote on Twitter.
Biden is seen clearly falling in the videos of the incident.
