(WATCH) Biden’s slippage reminds me of a time when Trump…

The following is a news analysis.

After making a commencement speech at U.S. Military Academy West Point last June, President Trump did a small-step shuffle down a ramp. Like a lot of news coverage surrounding Trump, it sparked international speculation that– something was wrong with him!

Then-candidate Joe Biden made fun of Trump.

“Look at how he steps and look at how I step,” Biden said in September. “Watch how I run up ramps and he stumbles down ramps. OK? Come on.”

After President Biden’s stumbles and fall today, he may wish he hadn’t mocked Trump for the shuffle.

But the incident reminds me of a campaign appearance Trump made shortly after the international furor over his shuffle. He told the story behind the shuffle complete with with comedic timing and reenactments.

Trump’s supporters responded with roars of laughter and applause.

You can watch the video of the applicable section of the speech at the link below.

“It was like an ice skating rink…I’m being baked like a cake.”
“I said ‘General, there’s no way I can make it down that ramp without
falling on my ass, General. I have no railing.”
“Leather shoes”
“He said ‘Grab me, sir.’ You know I didn’t really wanna grab him.
I said ‘That’ll be a story, too’… I said, ‘General, get ready, because I
may grab you so fast. Because I can’t fall with the fake news watching’.”
“I remember when another President, nice man, threw up in Japan. And they did slow motion replays. ‘I don’t want that, General!'”
“I would have been better off if I fell and slid down the damn ramp.”
(Trump’s supporters applauded and roared with laughter.)
“I start the journey inch-by-inch…I ran down the rest. I looked very handsome.”
“I will tell you when I make good [speeches] and when I
make bad ones. So far tonight, I’m average.”

  1. I will forever be tortured by the thought of what Trump’s presidency might have been…even if only four years…had the MSM reporting been fair and unbiased, and the outgoing administration not taken it upon themselves to “cover the tracks” of their partisanship while in power. Sadly, we’ll never know, because our press and journalism itself has become a fable. It’s just sad.

  2. Gerald Ford when running for President slipped a couple of times and he was ridiculed unmercifully by the press. It cost him the Presidentcy.
