Flashback: Media Questioned Trump’s Health For Slow Walk, Now Silent On Biden’s Fall

(Tea Party PAC) – While it was up for much discussion throughout the whole of President Joe Biden’s White House bid as to whether he was actually up for the job due to his faltering memory often confused demeanor, his allies continue to insist that all is well and everything is fine.

Even though former President Donald Trump couldn’t so much as cough without the media and Democrats clamoring in tandem to invoke the 25th Amendment to have him removed from office.

On Friday, President Biden fell as he tried to run up the stairs of Air Force One which—let’s face it—was pretty ambitious for the old guy to begin with.

The videos have spread across the internet like wildfire of Biden’s trip, faltering, and further tripping as he attempts to right himself, stopping finally to check the knee of his pants before completing his ascent to the top of the stairs.

The mainstream media, who was tickled pink that he enjoys playing Mario Kart yet hardly bothered that he has yet to hold a press conference, has been all but completely silent on Biden’s high-profile tumble.

Yet in June of last year, when then-President Trump carefully descended a ramp at West Point to avoid slipping, the media loudly pushed conspiracy theories that this was somehow indicative of a neurological disorder, or something.

Infowars noted that the headlines blared “Trump’s Halting Walk Down Ramp Raises New Questions” in the New York Times while the Washington Post labeled the occurrence “Ramp-Gate.” MSNBC feigned concern that Trump had an “unsteady appearance,” while CNN, in commentary that has not aged well, wondered if Trump was “afraid of stairs.”

Never one to be silent when piled on by the snobby establishment media, Trump responded in tweet form at the time.

“The ramp that I descended after my West Point Commencement speech was very long & steep, had no handrail and, most importantly, was very slippery,” he wrote. “The last thing I was going to do is ‘fall’ for the Fake News to have fun with. Final ten feet I ran down to level ground. Momentum!”

He later mocked the media for their coverage of the incident in one hilarious bit of one of his iconic campaign rallies.

All these people are being silent on Biden’s concerning fall up the stairs of Air Force One—which is made all the more concerning in context of how carefully sheltered they’ve kept the president away from any close scrutiny.

Yet when Trump took a few slow steps to avoid falling, they were all over it.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski declared that Trump was lying and that “there is no indication that the ramp was slippery during a clear sunny day.” She spun together a conspiracy theory that his awkward steps on the ramp coupled with his “needing two hands” were clearly indicative of “health concerns.”

While commentators Joe Scarborough and the Associated Press’ Jonathan Lemire offered an empty caution to leave speculation to the president’s health “to the doctors,” they perpetuated the narrative all the same.

“Images like this and even his speaking ability or lack thereof, undercuts their argument that Biden is a doddering old man and that they should elect someone with more energy than Joe Biden,” said Scarborough. “Clip for clip, stumble for stumble, Donald Trump appears to be right in line with Joe Biden, or in many cases, even worse.”

“There are some questions this morning about President Trump’s health,” declared CNN’s Alisyn Camerota. “You see him walking very haltingly, one leg at a time,” said to the notorious fake news network’s medical commentator, Dr Sanjay Gupta. “President Trump is not known for being athletic, so maybe he just has a hard time going down a gently sloping ramp, but do you see something possibly neurological that could be throwing off his balance?”

“Donald Trump is 74 years old [and]… we know so little about Donald Trump’s past medical history,” CNN’s Chris Cillizza offered in his own hot take. “We just have very little to go on, and when you have those two things, and you add it to the fact that Donald Trump… makes the mental and physical health of his Democrat opponents an issue… that’s when I think what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.”
