By Breitbart. President Joe Biden took a huge fall on stage at the U.S. Air Force Academy graduation ceremony Thursday.
Video shows Biden, 80, start to walk quickly off center stage when he trips and stumbles, tumbling to his knees and nearly ending up on all fours.
Personnel quickly picked him up before he hobbled behind a barrier.
According to the White House pool report, he seemed to trip “on a black sandbag on the stage” but appeared “to be ok and continued to stand until the ceremony ended a few minutes later.”

What Happened at the Air Force Academy Commencement Raises More Concerns About Biden’s Age
By Townhall. President Joe Biden traveled to Colorado Springs on Thursday to deliver the commencement address to the newest crop of U.S. Air Force Academy graduates, but his words might not be what the class of 2023 remembers. . .
As Axios’ Alex Thompson noted, this situation is exactly what Biden’s aides — both at the White House and on his re-election campaign — have wanted to avoid as they work to protect Biden from the rigors of being president and candidate amid ongoing criticism over his age and fitness.

Biden continued to participate in the pomp and circumstance following his tumble, appearing to be generally uninjured, and White House Communications Director Ben LaBolt confirmed the president is “fine.” . . .
President Biden is apparently doing OK after he just fell (or tripped) on stage after shaking the hands of 900+ cadets at Air Force Academy graduation. He is standing and carrying on with ceremony.
