Colorado: President Joe Biden collapsed on Thursday after hitting a boulder on the stage at the Air Force Academy in Colorado. However, he did not get hurt due to this and later he even joked about it. Biden, 80, who gave the commencement address to graduates of the military academy, collapsed as he was walking back to his seat after shaking hands with a cadet.
The air force personnel helped him up and it did not appear that he needed any further help. As soon as he got up, he pointed to the object with which he had collided. The said object resembled a small black sandbag.
Joe Biden just had a really bad fall at the U.S. Air Force Academy graduation. Falling like this at his age is very serious. Democrats want us to trust him to be the President until Jan, 2029. If we’re being real we all know that’s insane. He’s in no condition to run. pic.twitter.com/wacE0bojb9

White House communications director Ben LaBolt later tweeted that “He’s fine. There was a sandbag on the podium when he was shaking hands.” Later returning to the White House on Air Force One and Marine One, Biden was injured again. His head hit the door while exiting the helicopter.
Biden is the oldest person ever to hold the presidency and is seeking a second term in the 2024 election. His official doctor’s report this year declared him physically fit and he exercises regularly. In November 2020, shortly after winning his election against President Donald Trump, Biden broke his leg while playing with a pet dog.
