Jen Psaki Has New Explanation For Biden Fall After Comms Deputy Blamed Wind


White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said it was the “tricky” steps on Air Force One that caused President Joe Biden’s three stumbles while boarding the plane on Friday. “He’s 100% fine,” Psaki said of Biden during Monday’s press briefing. “I don’t know if you’ve been up those steps. They’re a little tricky sometimes, but he’s doing great,” the press secretary told reporters. On Friday, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre blamed the wind for Biden’s three stumbles. “It’s pretty windy outside,” Jean-Pierre told reporters, reported The New York Times. “It’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself. He is doing 100 percent fine.” As noted by The Daily Wire, Biden’s repeated stumbling occurred shortly before the president departed Joint Base Andrews for Atlanta. White House Communications Director Kate Beddingfield similarly said the incident was not a big deal.
