President Biden’s bad trip has become quite the meme drop on Twitter.
The 78-year-old stumbled on airplane stairs while boarding Air Force One on Friday, following in the temporarily unstable footsteps of President Gerald Ford.
But the commander-in-chief’s loose footing has let loose a firestorm of memes and jokes on Twitter, and despite other gaffes, marks his first meme occasion as president.
And the jokes certainly didn’t fall flat.
Twitter’s constant commenter Chrissy Teigen, of course, weighed in to drop a quip: “we should all hope to one day trip on the way up to our personal jet.”
“Chair Force One,” tweeted conservative activist and gun rights advocate Kyle Kashuv.
Several others compared Biden’s tumble to other famous falls. “Did Jennifer Lawrence possess Biden’s body momentarily there?” wrote one Twitter user, recalling the time the actress fell at the Oscars.
“No one is safe from the NFL’s rushing leader #Bidenfall,” wrote the Pro Football Network with a Photoshopped image of Tennessee Titans player Derrick Henry.
“Ok ok it makes sense now,” tweeted one user, collaging together a clip of former President Donald Trump, 74, putting a golf ball cut to make it look like the ball hit Biden.
“Joe Biden vs Sasuke was the greatest anime battle. Don’t @ me. #Bidenfall,” tweeted one user with a collaged photo of Biden and manga character Sasuke Uchiha.
Others connected the stumble with the fact that Instagram briefly went down on Friday.
“Me heading over to Twitter to see if Instagram is down for everyone #instagramdown #bidenfall,” one user wrote.
Some Twitter users, however, have taken over the hashtag to show support for the president.
“#BidenFall is trending so a reminder that under Biden deaths have fallen each week and we just hit 100M vaccination shots,” human rights lawyer Qasim Rashid tweeted.
“The story ain’t about President Biden tripping as he entered Air Force One. It’s about how quickly he got back up,” tweeted Obama alum Scott Dworkin.
The White House blamed the weather for the incident.
“It’s pretty windy outside. It’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself,” White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters.
