State of the Union

No speech yet but I think this illustrates pretty well where America is right now.

Apparently, the President asked voters to consider how he runs up ramps as a reason to vote for him:

Tripping going up steep airplane stairs is so low on my concerns. I actually think he recovered quite well. I can imagine that happening to even a 20 year old.

I feel like this is more of a distraction from the real bad things he is doing. Don't look at the horrible international policies, look at these stairs.

The American public isn't smart enough for the other stuff. Keep pointing out that he can't walk properly or speak.

People voted for this guy even though he's taken bribes from the Chinese and Ukrainians and runs a crime family. Plus all the weird shit his son is up too.

The alt right extremists are at it again showing their true colors. Making fun of an old man who tripped on steps when it was incredibly windy. Just goes to show the differences between the two political sides because if Trump had tripped while president the democrats would have taken the high road and let it go.

Yes, I often have trouble with stairs when it is windy. Plus, his physical capabilities have nothing to do with the decision making process, so it should be irrelevant anyway.

CNN agreed with you on when it was the past President

CNN's Alisyn Camerota on Trump at West Point: "There are some questions this morning about President Trump's health...[M]aybe 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?"


Maybe CNN will update quote to address the new President.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota on Biden's plane boarding: "There are some questions this morning about President Biden's health...[M]aybe he just has a hard time going up stairs, but do you see something, possibly neurological that could be throwing off his balance?"

Nope - CNN - mostly quiet

Off the topic of politics, when I worked in hospitals, an orthopedist one time told me that ramps are installed everywhere to ostensibly reduce tripping hazards for the elderly. In reality, a ramp is the most destabilizing surface imaginable, because it throws off sense of balance in a person with even the slightest impairment and even some with no impairment. Ever since that lesson, I have wondered how many falls have resulted from ramps that would not have happened if a simple curb or step had remained in place. It's one explanation for why first world EU countries like France, Spain, Greece have much lower incidence of falls than the US despite looking like a tripping disaster waiting to happen.

I don't think it was surprising or unusual for a sedentary man Trump's age to have some difficulty negotiating a ramp. Same for Biden (or Trump) going up steep steps in the wind. If we don't want to see things like this, maybe we need to reconsider how realistic it is to elect elderly leaders and expect superhero vitality.

Biden tests Army's latest sniper rifle.

Who cares if Biden hurts feelings with his manly actions.

Don't take him literally. We need him to be strong and manly to deter our enemies.
