Democrat President Joe Biden took an extremely hard fall at Air Force Academy commencement ceremony today, turning in another shaky public performance as the 2024 election heats up.
Biden fell on stage after congratulating graduates of the Air Force Academy in Colorado causing the crowd to gasp loudly.
Biden is 80 and is the oldest-ever president.
He is seeking a second term in next year’s election.
Biden would be 86 if he completes a second four-year term.
The White House did not immediately comment on Biden’s health status but a pool reporter claimed later that he “appears to be ok.”

Biden said earlier during his remarks:
“Graduates, you made a noble choice to lead a life of service.
“Now you also shoulder a great privilege and a mighty responsibility.
“Leadership, yeah leadership.
“In the years ahead, your airmen and guardians are going to look to you for guidance and inspiration because the world is going to get more confusing.
“They’ll put their trust in you.
“You, in turn, must strive to always be worthy of their confidence.”
