Tuesday night in Georgia, a young white man murdered 8 people in three Chinese massage parlors. This Thursday, Joe Biden flew to the city of Atlanta, to meet with representatives of the community of Asian Americans, devastated by this massacre. But a detail did not escape the cameras on the tarmac before the flight of the presidential plane. Indeed, Joe Biden, when climbing the stairs, tripped three times before making a military salute once at the top of the stairs. A fall that worried the most bilious, after the accident of the American president last November. The latter had slipped while playing with one of his two German Shepherds, Major, and had broken his foot. He was subsequently seen with an orthopedic boot on his foot. Today recovered from this mishap, Joe Biden again tasted the vagaries of gravity this Friday, but the deputy press secretary of the White House, Karine Jean-Pierre, subsequently confirmed that the president “was fine. 100%.”

Joe Biden: more reckless than Donald Trump
If Joe Biden climbed the stairs rather voluntarily, his predecessor, Donald Trump, tended to favor extreme caution. Everyone remembers the sluggish gait of the former president as he trod a small slope last June, during a visit to the West Point Military Academy in New York. A caution that had not failed to arouse mockery on the Web, and even Joe Biden, during his candidacy in September 2020, had blurted out about his rival: “Look at how he walks and watch how I walk.” This is called a backwash!
