With so many things happening in government--COVID relief, mass inoculations, money going out to 85 percent of Americans, voting rights being suppressed and voting rights bills struggling for success in the senate, etc. and etc.--can you guess what the big news is these days? It's Biden tripping up the steps of Airforce One. Good Lord. An embarrassment around the world, they say. Incompetent, senile, unwell. Dude! He was trying to run up the steps, for God's sake! Lol. I, at a younger age than Biden, haven't tried to run at all in the past few years.
So anyway, I decided to look this silly sort of shit up, and of course I found that most of our recent presidents have tripped on one occasion or another--and that the steps of Airforce One seem to be a bit of a special tradition in presidential trips. Ford, Reagan, Clinton, Pence, Obama--all have tripped up or down those steps.
I mean, how very, very foolish this is. Speaking of an embarrassment around the world. The real embarrassment is this all-American focus on meaningless trivia at the expense of somewhat more important matters--you know, like addressing real issues, solving real problems, doing something for the American people, listening, learning, comprehending. Are Americans really this empty-headed? Yes, apparently, they are.
It's sad. It's discouraging. And it's getting worse every year. Moreover, the congress, and the senate--this 'most deliberative body in the world'--is wallowing in the same childish antics. Perhaps Trump was more suited after all as a representative of this kindergarten country of ours.
