It is an interesting though, when one hears that somebody’s “one true enemy” are stairs.
And one, with quite a bit of humor and probably childhood nostalgia remembers that Kung-Fu Panda’s nemesis was precisely that.
Well, US President Joe Biden appears to share the same adversary as the iconic cartoon character.

For those worried, the President was “doing fine” after his fall, informed White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre.
“It was very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself. He is doing 100 per cent fine. He’s doing fine”, said Pierre.
“He’s doing fine. He’s preparing for the trip just fine.”
Pierre did not comment on whether Biden had been checked by a traveling physician after the incident.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to answer questions regarding Biden’s row with the stairs.

She also found justification that’s not the wind. It turns out that the Air Force One steps are “a little bit tricky, sometimes”.
“He’s 100% fine. I don’t know if you’ve been up those steps, they’re a little tricky sometimes,” Psaki responded.
“Did he see a doctor? Did he have to see a doctor over it?” the reporter said.
“I’m not aware of that being required. There’s, of course, a doctor who travels with the president, any president of the United States, but I’m not aware of it needing actual extensive medical attention,” Psaki said.
When another reporter pointed out that Psaki didn’t answer “no,” she returned to the subject.
“Well, I’m not trying to be. There’s a doctor who travels with him. He was walking around, as you all saw, by the end of the day. So I’m just trying to be completely transparent. He’s absolutely fine as he was on Friday, was this weekend. He spent the weekend at Camp David. He’s good,” she said.
One could see the wind, but it is questionable how strong it was, since nobody else was moving. It is true that Biden is rather elderly, but still.
Of course, memes abound, there’s even a video of “killer” Russian President Vladimir Putin shooting and causing Joe Biden to trip.
How dare he.
Luckily the Air Force One is a significant piece of equipment frequently used by the White House and it would be inefficient to drone strike it in revenge of the incident. It could also potentially be blamed on Iran for “sabotaging” the stairs.
