President Joe Biden slipped and fell walking up the stairs on Air Force One last week. It happens. Most of us have been in similar situations. We laugh. We move on. The White House should do the same.
Instead, President Biden's press team continues to spin and lie about the slip. At first, the White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, 'it's pretty windy outside. It's very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself.'
As Biden would say, 'come on, man.'
On Monday White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki kept the excuses coming. Watch below as she says those Air Force one steps 'are a little tricky sometimes.'
Again, level with us. Biden slipped, tried to recover, slipped again, and then slipped one more time. Embarassing? Maybe. But, prolonging the excuses only makes America wonder more about Biden's age.
The White House should say, he slipped, it happens, and the President is fine. They can't. They are too used to lying and spinning the stories they just can't help it.
That's probably why the Biden White House put a press lid in place Monday at 1PM Eastern Time because they can't spin and lie their way out of everything, particularly what's happening at the border.
