( – In a light-hearted moment during a speech to the United Auto Workers in Belvidere, Illinois, President Biden made a humorous remark following an audience member’s minor mishap. As the individual stumbled, Biden paused to ensure their well-being and then quipped, “I want the press to know that wasn’t me,” eliciting laughter and applause from the audience. He playfully imitated an unsteady gait before continuing his address about a potential labor agreement that could avert a factory closure amidst a widespread strike.

This jest came on the heels of several incidents where President Biden himself has had some physical missteps, which have been widely circulated online. Notably, in June, during a visit to the U.S. Air Force Academy, he tripped post-speech, though he was promptly assisted by Secret Service agents and recovered without issue.

Another moment occurred when he briefly stumbled before a speech in October about his economic policies.

Additionally, in June of the previous year, the President had a fall while cycling with the First Lady in Delaware. He reassured onlookers of his condition post-fall, and it was reported that no medical attention was necessary; his foot had simply become entangled with the bike pedal while stopping.

These instances have sparked conversations among the electorate regarding the President’s age as the next election cycle approaches. Should President Biden run and be re-elected, he would be 86 years old at the conclusion of a second term, raising voter concerns about age and the demands of the presidency.
