FLASHBACK: Liberal Media Spent An Obscene Amount Of Time On Trump’s “Ramp Walk”, Ignore Biden’s Tumble

The media that serves as a protection racket for Joe Biden has exhibited a serious double standard after his embarrassing stumble on the stairs of Air Force One.

On Friday, Biden tripped over his own feet not once, not twice but three times as he was boarding the presidential jetliner for a trip to Atlanta.

Biden’s inability to successfully navigate a flight of stairs was captured on camera and quickly went viral on social media with critics taking much delight in the presidential pratfall.

In case you missed Biden’s fall, here it is again:

While Biden’s troubles broke the internet, the mainstream media barely covered it.

The lack of media attention is a stark contrast to the saturation coverage of then-President Donald J. Trump’s slow walk down a ramp at last summer’s West Point commencement while holding a glass of water that set off wall-to-wall chatter about his health.

According to Newsbusters:

“On Friday morning, President Joe Biden repeatedly fell up the steps of Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base and almost immediately, comparisons ensued as conservatives and Republicans recalled the liberal media’s wall-to-wall coverage of then-President Trump holding of a water glass and walking slowly down a ramp at the June 13, 2020 West Point commencement.

For CNN and MSNBC, the ordeal was treated like the 21st century’s Zapruder film. A NewsBusters analysis has found that CNN and MSNBC spent a heaping 50 minutes and 55 seconds (excluding teases) on June 15 reveling in the ordeal as a sign of Trump’s supposed mental and physical decline that had to be further investigated.

Excluding teases, CNN mentioned it on seven shows for a total of 22 minutes and 13 seconds.”

 

 

Even the tripper in chief piled onto Trump at the time:

Other examples cited by Newsbusters:

“Dr. Sanjay Gupta repeatedly said he wasn’t going to speculate, but he did just that as he wondered if there’s “balance problems” or “numbness in his feet” because there’s “lots of unknowns” about Trump’s health. Later in the day, he called the ordeal part of a “concerning” pattern regarding his well-being.

The New York Times’s Maggie Haberman fueled the fire, hyping that “there are a lot of questions around the President’s physical fitness” that are entirely “legitimate.”

The Associated Press’s Jonathan Lemire went all in on Trump as a President on the ropes: “[T]he matter of a President’s health is of great importance to the American public and there have been questions about some of the information reported in President Trump’s previous physicals.”

He added: “In terms of the politics of this, the Trump campaign for months now has been trying to suggest that Joe Biden was not up for the job….It is absolutely harder to make the case when we see video like this where the President himself is having momentarily stumbles, momentary lapses, and, you know, looks, straining for a word or whatever it might be.

The lack of comparable coverage of Biden to Trump further underscores how the American media now functions as little more than a propaganda arm of the Democratic party and no longer even bothers with pretending that they are fair and balanced.

While the domestic mainstream media can ignore Biden’s troubles but you can bet that America’s enemies are watching and licking their chops.
